Bumping old thread to say there's a plugin for GIMP to generate hexgrids here:
I'm loving it.
It does, indeed. Have some from me, as well.

Firstly thank you for all this very helpful info, my question is what type of transparency would you use? Meaning what time of plastic?
Thanks in advance for your knowledge
