I need to create some images like these for a board game:
In TikZ, can I draw a hexagon and fill it with a hexagonal area cut out of a bitmap?
[In case anyone asks why TeX: Each actual hex will have a number of symbols (taken from bitmaps), boxes, text, coloured circles, etc. printed on it. These are liable to be extensively adjusted---a simple example might be systematic replacement of a symbol across all hexes. I want to use a scripting language rather than Photoshop-like software, to stop regeneration of hexes (and creation of new hexes) being tortuously slow. I know TeX isn't meant for this, but I don't know of any better options.]
