Why not keep the square grid and just introduce movement to the diagonal?

By introducing movement ne,nw,se and sw it would compromise between the two
methods (hex and grid) but be a lot easier to code. Just say the diagonal
movement cost is 12 days instead of 8 days.

About the movement: I would suggest the unit be considered in transit and
untouchable. I would also suggest a stop order in mid transit take the
number of days it took to get there to execute. ie if I move 2 days of the
journey and then issue a stop it will take 2 days.

What about an AMBUSH command to take out those wandering masses. That would
only attack units after they leave and not if they end their movement.
