Ok so at present i making a point of trying to keep the numbers of games down to a managable level, so I made a decision that for the next 6 months I going to play just 3 games
Malifaux – I play guild, going to try and play only a few masters and start getting my head round the game system. So at present I think i going to play Nellie and Lady Justice, with maybe a bit of Sonnia. But Right now I got 2 tables sorted for the game, one which is transportable and one which really isn’t, amazing how much Hirst Art Mold flooring and bricks add to weight of items. Will do some photos of the board sooner.
Guild Ball – I love this game, I am a pundit for Steamforged and love the style and pace. I am at nationals in October and Steamcon in November. I going to play 2 guilds for the next 6 months, Morticians and Alchemists (which I playing in the Local Big League). Not sure which I going to take to Nationals but it will be one of those 2 teams.
Warmachine – Ok MK3 brought some enjoyment back for me, but the issue is with just how competitively driven the local meta is becoming. I play games first for fun, secondly for competition and right now I struggle to want to go to tournaments locally because of the 2 or 3 players I just don’t want to deal with. Maybe this will change but right now I am not sure what I going to do about that.
Ok, so one of the first mats I did was a X-Wing mat for myself, and then I offered the design (and then a lot more designs) to community, and even though I going to start selling PVC mats, I made the decision as these mats were freely available that I would leave them so. But here is a simple guide to how to get them printed from Pixartprinting,
- Choose a Design from My Gallery and use the link in the description to download the full version (these are all quite large, considering they 100 / 150 dpi and 3 foot square designs.
- Go to Pixartprinting Banner I used 2 types from here:
- Extreme Classic PVC 500 gsm (from the PVC Banners)
- EcoFlat (which is a tougher material and lays flat quicker after being rolled up)
- Choose size and numbers
Size for most want to be 91.44 cm x 91.44 cm, all the designs have the information in the Description within the gallery
- Choose delivery timescale (the longer you give them the cheaper it is)
- add the order to checkout and purchase.
- Once you purchased you be asked to upload the image, which you got in step 1.
- Wait for arrival of your new play mat.
Who am I. Well a gamer of well over 20 years. Who of late started doing some items to for locals and myself in the way of vinyl mats and other other accessories for Wargaming. So I decided to start offering these to the wider community. So first stage is this blog, there will be a store and other bits coming going forward.
So vinyl mats right now that are designed include Guildball and Malifaux, along with some plain generic ones. But what do mine offer over other options out there. Well I suppose the big one is price, I offering them at a low price, the material isn’t a nice as the neoprene backed ones but at 1/3 to 1/2 the price I find is great. I just supplied 8 mats for the local club for tournament running of Guildball, which if we gone down the Neoprene mats would have cost us over £200, which these mat’s cost less than £60 for the same number. Hopefully others will like them and decide to give them ago.
