Hey everyone, I just wanted to help spread the word about about some fantastic new wargaming mats I just ordered. A few weeks ago I did a little shopping around in search of some mats to use for the production photos in the Gunslinger’s Paradise rulebook and came across Cigar Box Battle Mats. My mat collection at the house is mostly made up of that mouse pad material and as much as I like them I wanted to switch over to something where I could put the hills underneath for a more realistic look. After reading a few reviews I decided to go ahead pull the trigger by ordering Cigar Box’s Rattlesnake Ranch and New Grasslands mats.
Fast forward about 2 weeks and I finally had time to open the package and take a look at my purchase and I must say these are amazing. The quality of the fabric is really nice, there isn’t much creasing when you lay the mats down over hills and the art design looks very natural.
I’m very happy that Cory over at Cigar Box gave us the green light to use these in our books and on future projects this is will be my go to option when I need to get a proper piece of ground cover to match the theme of the books we produce.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be putting out some play testing photos of A Gunslinger’s Paradise to show off the new terrain and buildings we’ve been working on. For those of you looking to get a jump start on building your western towns and open ranges I’d highly suggest taking a look at Cigar Box Battle Mats. I’ve added the links to what I’ve purchased below but they have a ton of other options available to fit whatever theme you’re looking for.
