Does anyone have a line on a larger hex map with terrain on it? 22" x 36" will get real tight with 16 ships on the table laugh

I'm thinking something like this, but prettier. The included maps are so well done, I'd hate to have to resort to a brown battle map.

I'm a designer, so I can create my own, but printing large format gets real expensive fast. This probably comes up a lot in the miniature gaming community, so sorry. I did a few searches and got nothin'.

Hotz has some very coolmatts that would work. Check out their European Fields and Trench Works matts.

Note, I have never purchased from them and have heard they are slow to deliver but that the products are great once you get them. Note, they can put a hex grid over any of the matts.

I am planning on using Heroscape tiles for any large scale games I play. The hexes are a bit big, but I don't think it will be too much of a problem.

Wow, those are beautiful! They are a bit pricey, but not too bad considering they're hand air-brushed at time of purchase. Definitely on my list of "must-buy"

I found that Hotz doesn't have 1.25" hexes available, which is what I believe leviathans uses. Not the end of the world, but I'd like it to look nice. I have an email in to see if it's a possibility.

I'm looking at that trench map, and getting all sorts of evil ideas

We offer 1.25" hex overlay options for all our fabric mats. We have some land and an ocean mat. I'm working on something with a bit of coastline.

Our mats come in 72" by 42", 72" by 58" and 108" by 58".

Thanks for the link Jonathan. If/when I need it I'll definitely consider your products. They look great by the way.

From what I'm seeing you don't make fabric mats any more. Is this going to be permanent??

They are available again. We where launching a new version that is a lot better. We are working on phase 2 of the project now. This will allow us to make even larger mats (80" by 60") and lower international shipping prices.
