I just got 3 mats from the new company URBANMATZ
A cobblestone in 3x3. A snow in 4x4 and an urban theme in 4x6. All came in a nice carrier bag. Communication with the company has been great. My order was delayed by GLS due to GLS actually making a mistake. Oh well, they arrived in one piece.
Cobblestone. Works fantastic with Mordheim, Frostgrave or could easily be a piece of Gotham city. The buildings are just the old cardboard ones from Mordheim and some dried lichen for a bit of cover. That is it, ready to go. Well for these pictures I did not do a proper set up but just wanted to show how it looked. And I am impressed.
The fabric is waterproof. Has a bit of elastic to it which in my opinion is great as it will prolong the life of the mat. Sturdy on the table as it reminds me of the mousemat material. When throwing dice it softens the clatter sound immensely. Really easy to storage between games.
I tried to be a bit rough with it, mashing it together in a ball, bending it to see if it would crack or make lines. Nothing...It just folded back out. I think this is mainly to do with the elastic in it. And I did a PUG test on it as well. I will explain this test in a later blogpost concerning the urban layout.
Details are really great. And even with just this cardboard terrain the board suddenly gets a whole new feel! And with painted miniatures and great terrain it will become EPIC BATTLES!
That is water beads around the miniature. And to show the other side of the mat as well. I must say that I am a fan. Just wait untill I show the other mats as well packed up with terrain. This has made it soooo much easier to make a game look great. And still it does not take up a lot of room when storaged. Roll it up, put it in the bag. Have a cup of tea.
Prices are quite acceptable too. This mat was 35 euro. About £26.
Go check them out at URBANMATZ
Next I will do a Frostgrave themed set up with the snow terrain mat using all the christmas decoration stuff that was converted into use as terrain.
