Really liking that alien hive mat.

I recently bought the badland 6x4 mat and terrain from gamemat.eu. I'm happy with both of them, they looked great as a photo from a recent game shows (The rocky bits and mat are theirs) and our table got a lot of complements on it's looks. I had two very small chips which I can't imagine is a common problem as the terrain was very well packages in the polystyrene cube with piece specific holes cut-out. No problems with the mat. I asked them for a paint list so I could touch up the chips. It turned out the paint would not very easy for me to obtain but they were apologetic and our conversation gives me confidence that if I had a more serious problem they would to fix it without any difficulty.

If anyone is interested I fixed up the chips using a black brush on primer, VMC Flat Brown, a mix of VGC Heavy Orange and AP Skeleton Bone and finished off with GW Karak Stone.

Might not be the correct place to ask, but I was wondering if anyone found a neoprene mat (mouse mat material) that also has the 8th edition match play deployment zones overlay available?

I found https://matsbymars.com/collections/48-x-72-mats Mats By Mars but they are using vinyl banner material, which I am not a fan of, but they do have the 40k overlay option.

I just received my limited Forges of Mars mat from gamemat.eu along with their pre-painted industrial set.

The mat is really great, the craters really look modeled on and not like an image.

The terrain is good and chunky and nicely detailed. The paintjob is simple but effective, I will just add some details here and there. The packaging is also useful to store it between games.

The map really fits well with GWs terrain. The circles on the side could really have been made with the Sector Mechanicus in mind wouldn't the mat predate GW's terrain. I also found out that standard tin cans have exactly the dame diameter and are only a few milimeters shorter that the Feratonic Incinerator.

The cardboard box is a slightly smaller stand in for a big building with detachable roof and walkways I want to build that can also be used for Necromunda.

This is a really quality lookin' mat for that Dance:

https://www.gamemat.eu/our-products/battle-mats/6-x4-g-mats/6-x4-g-mat-fallout-zone-pre-order/us/

A little bit of detail, but not too much - kinda Mars-ish, and easily useful for the slum crap of Necromunda.

I had a conversation with Reecius/Front Line Gaming about this several months back when Shadow War Armageddon released and provided a lot of input on a Necromunda themed mat for the November release of Necromunda. I guess we'll see in a week or two if they developed anything or not. If not, it's their loss because I'm sure a competitor will come out with something sooner than later.

Well, it looks like Frontline is about to lose out on a bunch of sales. Their own fault, really.

Gamemat.eu was my first neoprene mat purchase and I have been very happy with it. The graphics are imo better than the FAT Mat graphics, and even with international shipping the Gamemat.eu was cheaper.

Yep, it's why I steer people away from FAT Mats unfortunately. Their art and price is sub-par, and all of my mats have been from Europe as a result.

Are you guys talking about the Tablewar mats or the FLG? I've got one of each and I'd rank them:

Tablewar - best art
Gamemat.eu - good art
FLG - sub-par art

Yeah, it looks like some of the newer Tablewar ones are slightly better - but some are still looking really sub-par. I think the most consistent art I've seen is probably Deep Cut or Urbanmatz (Urbanmatz is all done by one guy I believe). I find with the price parity (Tablewar mats, for instance are $13-15 more than equivalent Euro mats - with shipping being almost the same) it's best to just buy from whoever you like best - artwise.

There's no inherent savings in buying locally in the US.
