Nice. You'll get more attention in the main part of the forum than you will just in the WHFB area, though. Moving this to News & Rumours.

These look quite nice, but what material are they made from?thickness? etc....
You also have serious competition from Deep - cut studios whose 6' x4' mats are under £40, where with the exchange rate your 6' x4' come in at around £52 with a lot fewer designs to choose from as well.

These are completely different of deep cut (deep cut is vinyl/pvc - more something photographers use as backround. Feels more like printed poster.).
Gamemat.eu is a proper durable mat with rubber backing, anti slip, can be rolled and unrolled and there are no dents. its new standard in gaming mats I would say.
Thickness is 2mm. Weight is around 3,5kgs. You can roll it and have couple of months in corner then unroll and play on flat mat!

There is no logo printed on it.

So it is like a mouse-pad/mouse mat meterial? What is the gaming surface layer made of? Could we see an extreme close-up of the mat and it's edge?

right it is like mouse pad material, just better thickness and quality. Surface feels like fiber, very good dice rolling and model movement. feels soft for touch

These look nice, when do the 4x4 mats go onsale and do you plan 3x3 at any point?

Also what is postage to the UK on one of these mats?

4x4 we plan to put on e-shop for pre-order with 10% discount in 2 weeks. With delivery of actual product in late July. So definitely will take some more time.

Priority(5days)Shipment to UK is for
1pc - EUR 23,
2pcs package - EUR 30
and for 3pcs package - EUR 37.
For more then 3 mats please contact me on gamemat.eu@gmail.com and we might settle some deal on price/shipment conditions.

and for what game would be 3x3 suitable?


Automatically Appended Next Post:
that shipment reffers to 6x4' size. 4x4 could be bit cheaper.

yeah,
These look great!

x-wing is played on 3x3 and 3x6 and needs a image of a starfield/asteroids/space!

In both cases some people would be interested in 4x4 and 4x6 with the 3x3 and 3x6 area marked out.

@Matous as Panic says 3x3 is suitable for X-Wing but also Malifaux and other skirmish based games.

The postage is a bit rich for me though, Deep Cut offer it at half that price with every additional mat being free. It seems like postage companies are trying to cripple some businesses with their current prices.

A 3'x3' "ocean" themed one would also be good for DeepWars/ShadowSea too...and any naval miniatures based game as well, I'd imagine.

One mat is around 3,5kgs and size of box is 125cm in lenght..
It is cost that most postal services offer for this kind of package. :///

Thx guys for 3x3 clarification!

It would be worth making the weight/size clear in your store

(as it may help with the postage cost shock some folk are getting)

also completely different material then deep cut/ deep cut is kind of printed poster on vinyl/pvc
Gamemat is proper rubber mat, more durable material, antislip bottom. no dents after rolling etc.

Guys, I have bought one of these (the one with the daemon summoning circle in the middle) and I must say, it's absolutely gorgeous. Matous1983 isn't lying, the material looks good, stays flat and dice roll well on it

The rubber backing and no logo is great.

However, the quality of the artwork is not good enough, on the battleground mat, the repeating pattern of the grass is clearly visible, as if the same tiny patch of grass has been photoshop clone-tooled over and over and you can clearly see it form a grid pattern on the mat. There are two patches of identical rocks copy+pasted as well.

It doesn't look like a lot of effort was put into the artwork, just some stock textures hastily thrown together without much regard for creating a natural look.

Yours certainly does look like a superior product in most respects, it is just a shame that the length and weight of the package makes it cost prohibitive to buy from you. Again that is not totally your fault, but if you do start 3x3 mats and get a few more designs I will certainly consider a purchase.

Also have you considered a UK/US supplier?

Clearly a matter of individual opinion. I can assure you on mat design was spend tens of hours of designer work. We wanted to assure there is enough variability and not just plain areas of 2 colors as on competition mats. I must say I think repetitiveness is the last which defines our mats clearly I think most of owners did not mind that each piece of grass is not original. On a table it looks great. I honestly do not now any other gaming mat which has so variable design as battleground.

Sure mainly UK and Germany retailers are so far interest. We are working out on some representations. But I still defend the point that such a gaming mat really hikes the aesthetic level of standard gaming table (carpet covered, or plain) and the cost even plus shipment is still less then buying GW modular tables or building own custom table (which is always top end in our hobby - but not everybody has the talent and the time to do so). We plan now 3 designs of 4x4 mats for preorders. 3x3 mats will probably follow.

So far probably 4x8 seems a bit unusual size. What game is it for, please?
