This hit my email today: "Dear customer, your order has been dispatched."

I wonder how long it takes for a mat to ship to the US.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

My Gamemat.eu mats arrived yesterday, and as a friend of mine had ordered one I brought the giant heavy box over to his place and we rolled 'em out to take a look.

So here's a mini review for anyone thinking of taking the plunge and getting some proper professional gaming mats rather than using tablecloths or bed sheets and other things (like I've been using).

General Review:
These mats are made of excellent mouse-mat material, the single-sided ones don't slip at all, the colours and artwork are vibrant and clear. They're excellent surfaces and are filled with detail. If there are any complaints it's that you really need to roll the double-sided ones tight or they won't fit in the (included for free) carry cases, and when in the carry cases the single-sided ones aren't very robust, so they droop in the middle which looks funny (that might be the single most minor complaint one can make about these things).

4x4 - Chemzone:
This is a stylish newer map that I got to give defined edges in Necromunda. It's simply layout and wonderful design make it perfect for this type of game, and despite its vibrant detail it would not distract from what's going on in the game. Wonderful.

I could'a got the 6x4 one of this, which they also produce, but as I said I wanted a 4x4 so that the edges of the game are clearly defined, not 3 defined edges and one measured out but could move or whatever. The less ambiguity the better, but if you want a 6x4 version of this great map they can do it.

4x4 - TriCity:
Another one bought for Necromunda, this one turned out a lot better than I imagined. I wanted a generic "flat plates" style map, and this one delivers but at a very high quality. You could do so much with various sci-fi set-ups using this map. Kinda makes me wish they did a 6x4 of it.

6x4 - Forges of Mars:
One of their two Limited Edition designs, this map is almost perfect with no terrain on it (so with terrain, even better). This is the one that most impressed me of the bunch. I am looking forward to seeing this with GW's Sector Mechanicus stuff on it. So much detail, everything looks natural, it almost looks 3D. I love this map.

6-4 Double Sided - Quarantine Zone/Wastelands:
This was the one I was unsure about. I wanted a map city grid, but the fact that it's not at an angle (creating clear LOS right across the table) bugged me. I prefer city terrain fields to be at 45 degrees to the regular deployment zones to create more interesting and limited fields of fire. I also wasn't 100% certain how the Wastelands side would turn out. I did a bunch of research on these maps and the city side sure looks cool, and Winter SEO's many exceptional videos showing off the Wastelands side made me think it's genericness would be a boon.

So I was pleasantly surprised with how this one turned out. The city is really well detailed and will look good when filled with my oodles and oodles of Cities of Death terrain. The Wastelands side is so generic (in a good way) that it'll work with anything - ruins, trees, rocks, lakes, you name it. I now have 3 surfaces for city maps, but none that are like Wastelands, so overall it was worth getting the double-sided one for this.

6x4 Double Sided - Fallout Zone/Imperial Base
I wanted a future/sci-fi board that wasn't city streets and looked more like a warzone, so the Fallout Zone map was an obvious choice. The Imperial Base side looked interesting, even if I'm not 100% sure how I'd use it yet, but it did look cool, so I went the double-sided version. Overall the Fallout Zone did not impress me as much as I wanted it to, but I think that it will be the one that benefits most from a good selection of ruined terrain. I have plenty of that, so I think my opinion will change.

Again, still don't know how I'm going to use the Imperial Base side of things, but it was the map that most impressed my friend. It is very cool.

6x4 Double Sided - Highlands of War/Forgotten Realm:
I have a single-sided Highlands of War on the way as I need something for organic/grasslands terrain other than my old green GW Battlemat (which I love, but I need more than one!). It's very good, and will work perfectly with my now good selection of organic terrain (I have recently bought a bunch of Gale Force 9/Battlefield in a Box trees, rivers and rocks, plus I got Gamemat.eu's own Highlands set, which hasn't arrived yet but is on it's way now).

I did not get the double-sided version as I saw no real use for the Forgotten Realm side. Never been a fantasy player, don't have anything that would fit with cobble-stone/stone pavers. My friend however does, as he owns a bunch of resin medieval/fantasy buildings, so for him it's perfect. And I gotta say, in the same way that the Imperial Base impressed him, the Forgotten Realms side really impressed me. The detail is rich, the stone pathways are big and varied, and with the right building aesthetic you could make this really work.

A couple of weeks ago two other friends of ours played a test AoS game at my first friend's house for, I think, the NOVA open which they're going to. They played on two bare white 2.5'x7' trestle tables, with a few buildings and trees. No surface - not even a blank table cloth - and it just hurt my soul. If he'd had had this mat when they played the game just would've looked so much better. One of those two friends wants to run his own tournament, which is part of the reason why I've been picking up these mats - I want to be able to do 10 tables worth of stuff, and whilst I have the terrain for that already, I don't have the surfaces.

With these, plus the other three mats I have on the way, I can now do that.

Great stuff. Gamemat.eu products are fantastic.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

Small addendum to my review, and it's a sad one because it isn't really Gamemat.eu's fault. This mostly pertains to anyone who ends up having their stuff shipped to them by UPS.

UPS are an inflexible bunch, unwilling to allow you to pick any kind of delivery time (not even a morning/afternoon/evening operation), no deliveries on weekends and they won't take things to a post-office if you're not there. Sure they'll make 3 delivery attempts, but if you're not there you better get ready to drive to their depot which is on the other side of the fething world to me (or it seems like it is). They will only allow a change of address, and I'm lucky that a friend of mine's father was home at the time to receive it.

So whilst Gamemat.eu products are simply fantastic, the method of receiving them couldn't be more inconvenient.

It's a good design. I think city/urban mats work better when they're set at an angle, rather than streets parallel with the edges of the map.
