War Gaming Mats – Lava, Dessert and City’s

We recently became aware, of Deep-Cut Studios gaming mats. These mats frankly look awesome. Deepcut offer a range of gaming terrain mats ranging from desert, city, space (for X-Wing and gothic) games and finally their lava mat, pictured above. I do find it hard to imagine games workshop terrain placed upon the lava mat, but it looks so Cool, I’ve got to see some Grey Knights vs Demon games played out on these.


Not only do these mats look the business, but they are also very affordable. More so than even the F.A.T. Mats. Available in both cloth and even lower cost PVC.

From Deap-cuts Website
“PVC mat:
– Made from high durability PVC
– Non textured gaming surface with high quality printed picture
– Resistant to scratch and tear as well as dirt stains
– Compatible with water based pens
– Shipping tubes can be used as easy storage
– The choice for a sturdy and cost friendly battlefield

Cloth mat:
– Made from lightweight synthetic cloth
– The paint are soaked into the material and will never scratch or fade off
– Can be machine washed or ironed with steam
– The choice for an ultra-portable battlefield”

The Deap cut city mats have a more grey concrete look than the FAT mats and are obviously less Grim Dark than Games Workshop’s. However when you consider they are over £150 less than a GW plastic board and almost half the price of a FAT mat, the compromise becomes very tempting.


I think I decided what I’d like for Easter!
