Battlemat with city map (what to buy?)

Post#1 » Sep 21 2017 12:37

Hello Att,

I have an request for your support as I have a plan to buy a battlemat (72x48).
So far I received not bad price from one of providers, but to be honest I have a huge problem to estimate which of below options will be most usable:
A)

What is your opinion?

Eh that mostly doesn't matter. It's more of a question of what terrain you put on it (ruins, LoS blocker, scatter terrain etc.)

Most designs I have seen in production follow those of c, d, or e.

I built myself a modular cityscape battlefield with roads. T-Sections, dead ends, crossings and if we place terrain on that we keep the roads mostly free (except for blockades or craters, debris etc.) and we do also like to play with the extended ruleset.
Like more movement on the roads, while being easier targets from above and so on.
If you plan to do so too I'd recommend B or A as these offer more options to place ruins while keeping the roads mostly open without any 72" alleys crossing the table.

Thanks a lot for feedback :)

@CDR+Farsight, not as good price to buy all ;)

@Ricordis, definatelly I prefer to place ruins outside roads, and to use LOS blockers as ruins or debrises.

@Panzer, yes I want to use different kind of terrain and therefore a question which of them makes most sense.
