I got my mat order from Urbanmatz a few days ago. Now I just need to clean up the War Room after a few months of neglect (work is a cruel mistress) and I'll lay them out and do some reviews.

I have to say, both companies' desert mat designs above look pretty sweet. I really like the cracked earth effect on the gamemat one.

So this seems like a good place to ask. Do any companies make a good SEA mat, I'm looking for a mousemat type one.

I know frontline gaming do a nice looking F.A.T. mat, but it seems to be out of stock everywhere. The only other ones I've seen are PVC and I have a PVC space themed mat and it hasn't lasted well (covered in scratch's).

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

I think they're doing some kind of retooling, and discontinued a good chunk of their mats for new styles. I'm hoping it includes some DFC style ones.

Deep Cuts waterworld is exactly what I was looking for. I'll pick one up in the new year. I do of course now also want at least two of their other mats, so It could get costly.

Thanks for the heads up.

I finally got my wargaming room (mostly) cleaned up enough to actually use the table again last night, so I was actually able to check out the first of my mats from Urbanmatz - their Space mat. I took a pile of photos, and wrote up a side-by-side review of both the Urbanmatz Space mat and the FFG X-Wing Starfield mat. The TLR is that both are great, but I give the edge to the Urbanmatz.

Lots more pics on my blog at the above link or click the photo below. Urbanmatz on the left, FFG on the right.

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!

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?
