Hello! For anyone who's reading this and is interested in these chess
variants i have a handy tip!  I love chess, and i love the hexigonal
varients, but its so bloody hard to find the right Boards, that i stopped
trying.  My father got me a game for my birth day called 'HeroScape'

It's a boardgame where you create your own board using HEXIGONAL TILES.
I've found this very handy for on the go chess.  they are easily stored,
genereally sturdy, a plastic material, cheap, and I love the fact they come
in different textures that might match your game. woodland ones, grass,
even stone and cement.  i reccomend getting the game set pieces, without
the figures.
