Any chance you would consider making a double sided map with Tales of Mars on one side, and Chem Zone on the other? You've got a lot of other cool ones, but none that has either of those.

Cheers!

Any plans for Kill Team sized mats?


As a mat-owner and gamer, I can't recommend this route personally. I know a lot of companies are jumping on the random sized mat bandwagon for stuff like Legion, but as a gamer....you can always use less-mat, but you can't magically add more. The Legion mats are 6'x3' etc. which is a bizarre shape. You're 100% better off getting a 6'x4' and just not using all of it. Same goes for Kill Team. You're throwing money away if you're buying an intentionally small mat which then can't be used for other things. Get a 4'x4' and just use less of it. I know many people who have purchased smaller or unique shaped mats and really regret it because the mat is still expensive but not versatile due to its size.

Just some friendly advice.

I would rather purchase and own several 22 x 30 mats. As a customer who owns four Realm of Battle configurations, four Games and Gears board sets, a half-dozen 6x4 mats and four 4x4 mats and a few specialty sized mats, I want exactly a mat that is sized for Kill Team to be able to play Kill Team on it.

I concur and I imagine it will differ based on the utility and personal taste of the individual. I don't want to mark a larger mat with dice or whatever else to ring the area off, I think it looks ugly, I just want to plop down a mat that is the perfect size. My utility is such I can afford this, I imagine if I was balling on a budget yeah I'd just stick to bigger mats.

I suppose people see things differently. I don't see it is a budget issue, rather a wasting of money issue, but hey, do what you gotta do.

I'm also looking for a 22"x30" mat specifically for Kill Team, despite owning a few 6'x4', 4'x4', 3'x3' and 2'x2' mats. For one thing, I can play it on my kitchen table without needing to bring in my extended tabletop from the garage. Also, I just like having the battlefield clearly delineated, anything on the mat is in-universe, anywhere off the mat out-universe and is free reign for cards, books, dice, and beer. Masking off a mat just feels like having a velvet rope cordoning off that part of the table, might as well have a "wet floor" sign. Masking off is certainly utilitarian and cost effective and gets the job done, but I prefer the right tool for the right job, as it were.

If a 22" x 30" mat is too specific to just cater to one game like Kill Team I'd at least like a 24" x 36" mat option on new or existing designs which would give a bit of flexibility but still easily work for Kill Team.

This. A thousand times this.

The weird not-quite 2 feet by not-quite-3 feet size is annoying. A simple 2x3 mat would be great.

This is absolutely correct. I absolutely do not want sweating beers on the mat, nor loose dice delineating the play area, or things getting shifted. When you're into a game's aesthetic, random dice or rulers marking edges just looks terrible. If you're masking off a game mat, might as well just play on a piece of plywood with masking tape - which is fine if that's fine with you. I could certainly take any of my 4x6 and mask off three playzones, but that would be ugly as sin.

It's already a luxury hobby. I buy faction and special dice and 40k card decks because of the aesthetic or convenience. I know guys who don't own their card decks and use old dice they've had for twenty years. They think me buying Thousand Sons dice or the Thousand Sons card deck, was a waste of money. Some of them think buying terrain is a waste of money.

For me, the aesthetic is a huge part of the game - so I much prefer to use a 22x30 mat with specific 40k terrain, instead of some other randomly sized mat with, like, a cottage and styrofoam hill and a clearanced aquarium piece.

You seem to be preaching to the choir here (I have custom dice cut for each of my armies...) but I won't litter this thread with more discussion..

Pre-painted? I'm guessing they aren't plastic then. Are the pipes and connection points on the tanks at least compatible with the stuff from Games Workshop?

Reading's for morons who can't understand pictures.

It is resin - which can said is kind of plastic
But yes it is special type of resin heavy and sturdy enough to create any terrain feature.

I got the kill team mat, it's great. Want to get the chem zone mat, but not a fan of the yellow terrain. Will probably just get some industrial terrain and add to the chemzone mat.

More pics of Necropolis mat!

Project Necropolis, a black site project long abandoned and better off forgotten. Unspoken of for decades, it was yet another instance of mankind’s reach exceeding its grasp as Imperial scientists tampered with the very foundations of the universe in an attempt to create planetary warp gates.

They succeeded.

Claw marks scarred into the plasteel walls of the abandoned hab-blocks and twisting, labyrinthine service tunnels tell a story of brief, violent struggle. Half-finished experiments still writhe in containment caskets abandoned in the streets, and the grav-trains still trundle along their lonely routes, carrying nothing but angry ghosts and grim reminders of the costs when mankind plays at godhood.

This lonely testament to the price of success threatens to divulge its secrets to the galaxy as a distress beacon is activated, and it is only a matter of time before curiosity brings traders and treasure seekers down to the surface. In a desperate bid to keep Necropolis and its secrets buried, kill teams are dispatched to terminate the signal, and retrieve the data ark at the heart of the facility.

But there are things stirring in the dark, and not all that is buried is truly dead.

Checkout https://www.gamemat.eu/ for battle mats and matching pre-painted terrain sets.

November Update: Our first ever MDF terrain, Campaign works and Necropolis expansions.

Years ago, we were so sure we would never go the way of MDF terrain. But of course, never say never! With the growing attendance of our own Warhammer 40k event - Prague Open 2019 - we realized that we needed an effective solution to cover lots of tables with quality terrain and minimal costs.

We studied all the needs of competitive gaming, considered the functionality of the products and consulted with the London GT management (we were the other bidder for the official LGT terrains, but we came too late in the bid). Now, we are proud to present you our first Tournament Terrain MDF set, fully pre-printed with coloured textures for a no hassle, no paint solution to your tournament needs! This set is HUGE and covers all the needs of a 6x4 foot competitive Warhammer 40 000 table with ease. Please bear in mind we are currently upgrading the printed texture of the set, and within weeks we will reveal much appealing looks.



We promised in previous posts we would be running a detailed, narrative campaign in a Necropolis setting, with lots of custom rules and narrative written by professional writer Alex Simon. We are still working on that! The concept and ideas are taking shape. The main course, the fantastic miniatures which will be part of the campaign, are just being painted for us at very high standard at Den of Imagination studio. We would like to give a big thanks for the hard work of this amazing painting studio.

But to be honest - we will be ready with all the needed models no earlier than end of January.
We are 90% sure we’ll be using the Necromunda system for that, as it allows really deep and customizable rule sets. We plan to include many vehicles, custom miniatures and missions, and then wrap all up it for you as a bundled campaign guide at the end. That way, we hope to inspire you to start your own campaign using the framework we’ve provided, and take the battle to the Necropolis yourselves!

We thought for a while about using the Kill Team system, but it seems to be much harder to tailor the rules to fit our custom narrative. Of course, if our fans enjoy our Necropolis campaign then we might revisit it with Kill Team rules as well.

On a final note, have a look at the fantastic 3D sculpt master-model for our upcoming Necropolis Portal. It is a true centrepiece for your table, around 30cm in diameter and 15cm in height. The portal offers plenty of space for placing miniatures on top so it can serve as a fortification in 40k, and plenty of line of sight cover for all other skirmish games like Kill Team and Necromunda. We hope to have this lovely piece in stock by end of January as well, and to include it in our campaign. After all, this portal was the great and terrible success that saw the Necropolis project abandoned!



Thank you very much for reading thru here! Most of all, have a great December full of family, love and peace. And bit of hobbying as well
