Geek Villain are very good in every respect, product, price, service and durability. I cannot oblige with pic’s as my desert mat is still in its bag. Suffice to say I have bought 3 of their mats having seen their advert here on Wargames Website.

I use a sand coloured dust sheet for my desert games Mile, with lay on sand dunes, hills and the like. A 10 x 10 foot sheet cost about £10. I can’t find my desert photo’s at the moment but when I find them I will post.11/05/2022 at 19:35 #17278511/05/2022 at 20:05 #172786Mike HeaddenParticipant
I have several 6×4 mats from both Tiny Wargames and Geek Villain. Have nothing but good things to say about both.
Am about to order a gridded mat for “Strength and Honour” and “For King & Parliament”. Whichever company I choose I will feel slightly disloyal to the other 🙂

Fortunately, Mike, these days I have the cash, space and time to deploy both 6×4 mats and the moar figures to go on them 🙂
My income is barely half what it was when I was working but my outgoings are only about a third. The result? Channelling my inner Mr. Micawber …. happiness!

im extremely happy with my Urban Matz one. I use it for historical Libyan desert or American Southwest adventures as well as for SF offworld scenarios. Comes in various sizes:
I imagine it could also be used for Australian Outback post apocalyptic scenarios like Mad Max.
Hope this helps.

Sorry I meant any pictures of it in use?12/05/2022 at 13:19 #172841
Sorry Mike I can’t find any on this computer of the mat in use I will flash up the old computer later and hunt them down.12/05/2022 at 13:24 #17284212/05/2022 at 15:29 #172846
Crumbs, don’t do that, it is not that important. Thanks for the offer though.
No worries Mike I have to do it as some how I cleared all my photo references and photo’s from my photo box. Luckily the vast majority are on the old lap top.13/05/2022 at 14:33 #172881John TreadawayParticipant
Geek Villain and Deep Cut make fine products and deliver – especially the latter – exactly what you can custom order if necessary. My Custom mats from Deep Cut have been outstanding

I have a green sheet I made decades ago. I suggest getting some rattle can paints and just making patches, lines or crescents of colour to break up the sameness. Dark brown, red primer, black or dark grey, khaki and even some blue or green would work. I have a very large drop cloth I picked up to actually use as a drop cloth. Can be cut in two to make a couple sheets big enough for my 5′ x 9′ ping pong table.14/05/2022 at 20:49 #172931
OBTW the loose gravel like material i0n the dust cloth is cat litter (unused).14/05/2022 at 21:05 #172932LogainParticipant
Reets Relish is a wool blend that gets a lot of use for wargaming. The texture and colors really nail Northern European/American ground cover. When I was buying some I was really tempted by some other wool blends (Sand and Beach were two). The blend of material textures and absorption of dye creates some great natural variation that I think looks really good for wargaming.
