Default Grid Paper PDFS

I have some old hex maps that I bought years ago. After checking several game stores in town, the closest thing I found was the re-useable plastic type for $30. Does anyone know where I can order the paper kind online? The only ones I have left are very small hex size.

There is a place that lets you print them from a pdf http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/hexagonal/
but it does not print larger that legal size sheets (not that my printer would print them anyway).

Default Thanks for the link

Nice to have that handy instead of trying to buy it.

I backed up a link and found some more free graph paper from that site.

Have fun.

A real gem of overlooked treasury of free paper model is the site Space Station 42 (www.ss42.com), literally hundreds of great models on all subjects.

Another great place to visit is the Incompetech free graph paper site, there you can create PDFs for graph and hex paper of various sizes. Myself, I create over-size sheets to use as 'battle-mats' of either terrain, deckplans or sector maps. (http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/)

Most office supply stores will have a quick-print counter equipped with a large-format printer, usually 36" maximum output which is perfect for 24"x36" 25mm deckplans or 36"x60" terrain or sector maps.

I suggest having large-format maps printed as blank double-sided items and having such laminated for long-life and ease of use with dry or water-based markers.

One other bit, visit your local 'dollar' merchandise stores, I frequently find various assortments of bagged small-scale army men suitable for 25mm use.

Due to multiple Incomptech posts, I've added it to the reference section. I, too, recommend this site.
