Is there a Tron miniatures game I'm not aware of?

I suppose there will be soon...

I received my Urbanmatz from the Czech Republic. Overall, pretty nice.

A little thinner than the Deep Cut mats I've owned, and the cutting isn't quite as precise (more fraying at the edges, but not terrible). The Cobblestone mat was...disappointing. My buddy ordered it and hadn't realized how dark blue it is. It shows up in some of their pictures, and doesn't in others. He had looked at the pictures showing a more "grey" appearance. Upon looking at the listing again, it's definitely a dark blue.

I can't recommend that one to anyone based solely on the colour, so he may or may not sell it off.

The Dirty Roads mat was perfect. Nice crisp art, nice layout, etc. The only minor qualm I'll give both mats is that they have a rather heavy satin sheen to them - unlike the Deep Cut Studios mats I've owned. Not super noticeable, but it's there. I hope it'll decrease with use over time.

All in all, I'm please, but my buddy isn't (to be fair, mostly our fault for not doing more research). I would order from Urbanmatz again.

These pictures don't really show how "blue" the cobblestone is, but you can see the difference between a more normal grey and the cobblestone mat.

EDIT: Took pictures with my phone which more accurately show the colour disparity as seen with normal human eyeballs.

Received my PWorks 3' x 3' mat earlier this week. It looks as good as shown on the site, only downside though, they have their logo printed in one corner of the mat, something they did not advertise as far as I could see, nor show in any of their pictures. While not a massive deal breaker, it is a bit annoying.

Looks like a pretty reasonable color for granite tho.

Here’s the last of the first batch of my gaming mat reviews of Urbanmatz‘ products from the Czech Republic. The Dirty Roads 6’x4′.



Often when I buy something from a company, there’s a “key” item that acts as an anchor for other stuff you then add-on. In the case of my Urbanmatz order, it was this mat. After seeing several photographs of it online, I was sold. The overall colours and theme of Dirty Roads matches my bases once again, as the Urbanmatz' Badlands mat did.



As with the other mats I’ve gotten from Urbanmatz, the design is printed onto neoprene (mouse pad material) and is once again quite nice. This time, the game I’m using to showcase the mat is an Age of Sigmar clash between Dwarves and Ogres, set in an unnamed Old World city (because I can use the ruleset without the background!) We were trying out the rules, so it’s an actual game rather than a mockup. Lots more pics over on my Wordpress blog.



I had an issue with the bag's zipper dying on me when I had the mat out for this photo review, which was only the third time I had it out(!) I still haven't gotten around to emailing Benjamin about it, but I will do eventually. I’ve now also got a bunch of Deep Cut Studios and Gamemat.eu products that I’ve also purchased that I will be photographing and writing reviews for shortly as well. But those are yet to come.

The double-sided Game mats look really cool, but I was expecting a bit more of a discount cost-wise. The price is a little off-putting. Cool idea though, hope it's adopted by other companies. I agree the lack of rubber is unfortunate, but I think if it was a bit more cost-effective I'd definitely consider it.

Any opinions on Cigar Box Battles mats? They have a kickstarter going for their double-sided mats, and I'm considering some of their generic designs. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or opinions!
