Mat-O-War Wargaming Mat
My Mat-O-War came today i'm very impressed with it.
For those who don't know about the Mat-O-War it is a compressed static grass flock sealed with a special resin that results in a flexible mat of compressed static grass. The mat actually improves with age as it becomes more flexible yet will not shed at all. Its use of traditionally coloured flock/static grass mean you get a green or beige surface absolutely perfect for wargames and an extremely rugged and durable cloth that can survive many, many years of club gameplay and rough treatment.
The Mat-O-War can also be washed and by doing so, softened, so that it can be used to conform to bumps and curves, indeed one customer washed his mat repeatedly with fabric-conditioner until it was completely soft and could be easily draped over books and objects to form hills etc: and this did not impact the durability or quality of the Mat-O-War at all.
My club the Grimsby Wargames Society has also bought Mat-O-War for all of there tables
Mat-O-War can be purchased from The Hobby Den
