The best thing about using hex tiles for a campaign map was the ridiculous imbalance in games that came from it. But, it also inherently meant that your goals were different to a normal game.

Like, Army A is in a fight with Army B, and oh dearie me, they get a kicking. Most of em die. So Army A is forced to retreat, a shadow of its former self. Army B buggers off to capture more territory and leaves Army A to slink off and rejoin its allies elsewhere. But what's this? Army C approaches, and attempts to wipe out Army A. So Army C is 2000pts. Army A is a ragtag 250 pts. They're screwed. But how many of the bastards can they take with them? Cos friendly old Army D is comin'! And if Army A can damage Army C enough, D will have a clear shot at hitting B in a couple turns!

Narratiiiiiiiiiive!!!!!!!!!!!
As I recall, if Army C is your Skaven led by Queek, and Army A is 400 points of Dwarf Trollslayers, Army C gets wiped out to a rat in a mountain village. :D

Well, yes, that's a possibility. Or there was that one time with tyrion, teclis, a unit of dragon princes and some swordmasters who came up against the mighty terror of...

Half a dozen gutter runners... :D

I’d forgotten that one, amongst the vast collection of my incompetence in that campaign.

Two and a half years on from those first, faltering, novice steps with an entry level machine to ... this bad boy

My first upgrade!

From a 2k resolution printer to 12k. It's quite a leap in print quality.

Not to mention the ginormous build plate

Haha 30 mk6 jump packs! ( not for me)

However I do have a very ambitious dungeon crawler modular tile set in the pipeline that i hope to maybe show case at Nagoyahammer 2024!

Are you planning on printing a house? That thing is huge.

Yes, in fact, Kind of. Modular dungeon tiles. Who doesn't enjoy a good dungeon crawl? Does any one know a good rule set that marries deck building to dungeon crawling (besides gloomhaven). I'm looking for inspiration for my ever evolving board game project.

I'm not really a board-gamer, so the only deck builder I have played is Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle. The deck building system and character progression are very good, but there is no dungeon-crawling element I'm afraid.
