I was lookin in games workshop, and saw those flock mats. They are like tablcloths covered in flock, as a base to play on, I reflected on what a good idea this was as opposed to buying 3 litres of glue and fifty quids worth of loose flock and spending hours to cover a board.
I was wondering though if they shed their flock quite a bit like christmas trees, anyone got one? and had this problem?
The mats hold up pretty good. Another good terrain mat is to go to a craft shop or find a company that re-covers pool tables and get the material from them.
yes, some grass does come off, especial the first few times you un roll it, but it retain good coverage for ages if you are carfull.
they are a very good investment if you cant afford a proper gaming board
Yeah. Felt is better.Originally Posted by ollieb
I find flocked paper mats wear out quickly becuase people tend to rest their arms/elbows on it.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

I find the flock mats are good - better if you glue them down onto a board. They can even cover hills and other undulating terrain. They do wear out but not as fast as if you did it yourself. You can also try sealing them with and artist fixative (try art store) or a cheaper alternative is a good quality hairspray.
I have some rolls that I don't stick down (convenient to carry around to friends' places) and they lose a little bit of hair each time. I still prefer them to felt - they look better. Try model railroad suppliers for (possibly) cheaper prices - just check the size!

the battlemat is certanly a better option than you mentioned, but it tends to roll up a bit so it makes the ground a bit uneven.
Our store made about 3 tables like this but they glued the battle mat on to a board.
You can find me on Dakka, B&C and Portent. :D
