This kickstarter obviously has its roots in the GHQ system. The difference being that this is a jig that will allow you to quickly cut the hexes out of a piece of foam with a hot wire cutter. Additional jigs will align everything so you can cut the various hill, river and edge pieces as well. I'm intrigued to say the least. Its a little pricey but not bad when you go out and price what it would cost to fill a board using GHQ's Terrain Maker hexes. There are also a couple of interesting twists to the process to help keep the hexes from shifting as you move your units across the table.
This system would work well with any scale of miniature and actually provides a lot of versatility in creating a board full of undulating terrain. Just keep in mind that it can take a lot of these little hexes to fill a 6'x4' board!
