The blocks come from GMT games, and are used for the Commands & Colors series. Although they aren't directly available from GMT's website, I found that, if you e-mail GMT to ask, they will sell you any of the block sets for $20 USD. For reference (and since I happen to have the numbers here), the available sets are:

C&C Ancients (Base):
Small Blocks: 120 grey, 92 brown
Medium Blocks: 30 grey, 45 brown
Rectangular Blocks: 5 grey, 7 brown
Large Blocks: 4 grey, 6 brown

C&C Napoleonics EXP 3 (The Austrian Army)
Small Blocks: 111 white, 12 blue
