For some more hex maths, see: How do I rotate a structure of hexagonal tiles on a hexagonal grid? (I think we could need a hexagons tag ...) –  Martin Sojka Aug 12 '11 at 11:25

Why are you unsatisfied with those two tutorials? One on gdreflections.com is great and quite simple too. Any specific "weak points" you have in mind? –  Vigil Aug 12 '11 at 12:52
    
@Vigil: those which I posted are pretty good, I'm just asking if there are some other recommended resources regarding this topic. –  yojimbo87 Aug 12 '11 at 14:23
