The pictures have all been taken with the hex grid deactivated. When hexes on these pictures are outlined, than only to show the player his movement or attack allowance.
SC games always had an option to activate / deactived hex grids (and formerly square grids), and this game will have this option too. And once activated, the lines are dark, and not at all faint. Imagine your classical hex board game with black hex line color. That is pretty much what this game will offer you if you decide to play with the hex grid activated. If you're a friend of this grid, it will look like "welcome back from retirement, General, please, sit down, and let me show you the situation on your map here, sir."
