Many of you may have noticed a lack of AAR's and modeling. Let's just say that my wargaming time has been drastically reduced with family commitments. I haven't heard from my regular opponent in over 3 months, so I'm not sure if he's become very busy or he's just tired of beating me over the head and wants a different opponent. Right now it's difficult for me to venture out to the LGS or the monthly gaming day at the Knights of Columbus Hall. I do, however, have a very nice garage where two tables can be set up easily to run games. If I can't go to the players, I'll invite them over for a game, or bribe them with BBQ and drinks. If I was going to have people over, I needed more than food and drink. I needed terrain. Enter, the Postman delivering this today in a tube box. After a recommendation from the WWPD forum, I purchased a green-brown mat from the terrainguy. The mat is canvas based and rubber coated. As you can see in the next picture... ...it unrolls with very little creases even after being rolled around a PCP pipe and shipped in a long box. The flocking is embedded in the rubber and for the most part I didn't feel any of the flocking coming off. There were a few small particles, but that's to be expected. A close up of the mat. I have another order coming soon. I'm excited to see how everything will look when it all comes together!
