I have been looking through possible battle mats (4x6') and seem to be struggling to find one that represents a cement city style. I went through the review of such things here (very useful and thanks to those who contributed) and failed to find what I really want. I don't want roads and lots on it (although, some amazing work is out there). I want an expanse of cracked cement to represent urban sprawl, I can then cover with my buildings, terrain etc. A basis for a hive city per se, The typical mats that have terrain like roads, curbs, lots etc actually dictate where things go just a bit more than I wish, and also there are problems with matching the scale etc sometimes.
Currently, I have a table in my garage whose surface has been covered with a textured paint. It works well, but is not portable the way a mat would be.
Anyone with suggestions, links, please give me a hand here. I live in the US, and would be happier with simple shipping etc, to keep cost down, but it isn't a deal breaker.
