For anyone wondering about Deepcut studio Beach Mat, here are some pictures from a Bolt Action D-Day game.

That mat (along with a few others) is on my possible-purchase list. How do you find it in practice? As it seems that nearly 1/3 of the mat is essentially a very good looking "out of bounds" and not particularly usable due to the amount of sea.

Obviously, it is a very mat for a very specific type of game (beach assault). I have enough Bolt Action stuff for D-Day, as shown, as well as forces for the Pacific to get a lot of mileage out of it. The ocean/water part is only about 12" of the width (1/4 of the width). I consider 2-3" of the water being difficult terrain as to not lose much width. Plus, if the water didn't make up as much of the width as it does, I would start to struggle to fit landing craft on it.

Some of the rules I add to this mat is random landfall rules which makes use of the extra water area as that is where the landing craft is placed followed by essentially a scatter die roll. I typically make the beach area half movement but double protection for going to ground (or Down order).

All in all, I really like the mat as it is much easier and portable than building a beach table. The graphics are really good. They are crisper than my other mats (Deadzone and an older Frontline Gaming snow mat). This mat doesn't get used as much (outside a short Pacific USMC vs. IJA campaign), but I am glad I have it.

I played my first game on my F.A.T. Mat from Front Line Gaming this weekend. I bought it at GenCon last year. I don't think they make them anymore. They make the F.L.G. line of mats, now.

Pro: The detail is great, and my ruins terrain pieces fit well with it. Afterwards, it rolled up easily and fit back into the black case it came with on the first attempt. I was worried that would be a pain, but it wasn't.

Con: I need a lot more ruins. Most of my terrain is hills, but I didn't want to use it on this mat. It wouldn't match. (Obviously, this is my issue, not the product's!)

My wife told me I need to go get that 4 building set from GW (Imperial Sector?) so the table isn't so sparse. Nice!

Do anybody have a review or owns a Point of Contact miniatures 6x4 game mat? I can get them at good price but I cannot find good pictures of it.

Anyone know what the turn around time on Deep Cut Studio is? I see all of the Blood Bowl pitches on restock. I am wondering if it would be better to order direct or wait until Wayland restocks them?

I recently bought a "Fallout Zone" mat from Incom Gaming. It's a gamemat.eu one.

A couple of photos of it with terrain on.

You can just about see the print grain in the one below. Looks perfect from any kind of gaming distance though.

Urbanmatz' 6’x4′ Badlands Game Mat reviewed here. Also, lots more pics @ the link.

Some pics:







I've got one more of Urbanmatz' mats left to review. I'm looking at ordering some mats from Gamemat and/or Deep Cut in the very near future, which I'll also review.

Does Deep Cut Studios have a distribution deal with someone in the US?

I'd love to get a 4' x 4' of their Space Hulk map for SW:A but cost + shipping will probably make it impractical.

hi Reecius,

Are the FAT mats available at element games in the U.K. The same quality as your latest ones?

According to your site, only the 4x4 are available in Europe/UK

The first FLG Mat off the line and it printed perfectly! This is a big moment for us, after a huge investment of money, time and energy, we've got our first new product, made right here in the USA! Thanks to everyone for supporting us on this endeavor.

That cobblestone map looks a bit weird. Who would build roads like that? widths and curves are mathematically perfect but the way they link together and go through each other at weird angles makes no sense. It needs a lot more irregularity (in road widths, potholes, less-than-perfect curves, etc) plus a more logical road layout to look realistic in my opinion. I like the lava map though, very cool.

That looks pretty damn sharp. There are a lot of companies which really underwhelm me with the art they've done or chosen...but that looks pretty spot on.

Ordered two new mats from Urbanmatz in the Czech Republic - will post up opinions when they arrive.

One 6x4 Cobblestone for a friend, one 6x4 Dirty Roads for me.

I will say it was rather unfortunate for my buddy and I that the US options are so slim. The mats in the US either have poor art, or prices are more than equal mats from Europe. A bit frustrating, but I received my previous Deep Cut mats with no issues.

I've got the Urbanmatz 6x4 dirty roads one. I think it's great (review forthcoming - maybe this weekend if I can swing it) I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I'm hoping to do a Deep Cut order this week as well - I'll review them (and the customer service) once it's all done as I have with the Urbanmatz maps.

I've had two Deep Cut mats and they're great - hoping Urbanmatz is on par! Thanks Azaz.

Just waiting on a reply from Deep Cut about VAT before I pull the trigger on a 5-mat order. Their system doesn't seem to remove the VAT from their prices (and shipping as well, I think) unlike Urbanmatz and Gamemat, and I'm not keen on "paying" tax that doesn't apply...

After Deep Cut the plan is to order a few from Gamemat, and then between the three manufacturers and my terrain collection I should be set for (almost) anything within reason...

Yeah, I don't remember if I considered VAT my first two orders from them, but it did come up when my buddy and I were looking at ordering mats (particularly since Urbanmatz removes it).

Wayland Games finally got a restock on the Deep Cut Studio Blood Bowl mats so i splurged for ONE mat and the shipping was more than the mat. I am really confused by this as i own 4 8x4 mats from both Kraken Wargames and Gamemat.eu and i don't think the shipping for my 4 full table mats even totaled the amount for this one tiny Blood Bowl mat. This will most likely end up being the only Deep Cut Studio mat i buy because paying more in shipping than the cost of the item is just stupid.

Well, you ordered it from Wayland Games, so wouldn't it be their shipping and not Deep Cuts?

Yeah. If you bought it from Wayland instead of direct from Deep Cut, that's hardly DC's fault.

I just checked their site to find the costs direct for a single Blood Bowl Mat shipped to the US:

Cart Totals
Subtotal 28.90€
Shipping Worldwide shipping: 14.90€
Calculate Shipping
Total 43.80€

If you paid more than 15 euro (roughly £13), then you got screwed by Wayland. Cancel the order if it hasn't shipped yet and order direct.
