What'a good playmat for this?

I really like the Fantasy Flight playmats that are like mouse-pads.

Are there any like this for these type of games? I know that Gale Force makes playmats but don't know the quality of them.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I could be mistaken, but I think GF9's mats are vinyl and not great for moving miniatures around. Slick and they might scratch.

I picked up a couple really nice mouse pad type mats (3'x3') at GenCon from a company sharing a booth with Dust Tactics. I cannot remember the company's name, but they were peddling a fantasy miniatures game. Hopefully someone here will remember or know. I will see if I still have the packaging and post back here their name if it is on them. Miniaturemarket did have some nice ones as well. I have the 48" one below and it is great, but maybe too big. I included the 36" link also.

Thanks for the suggestion. I like them but want more of a grassy terrain.

I found this:

Although it's bigger I think it would make for an epic game if you had a lot of tanks.

Although they have 3X3 as well.

I really like the cigarbox mats. They come in 3x3 and have versions scales for 15/20mm. They often have field, roads, and forests built into them so all you need to add are some buildings and fences.

These are more of a soft felt than a mouse pad material but The surface is much better than any cloth mat I've ever used.
