Got my new gaming mats - Fantastic & Highly Recommended

Post by Nick B »

Following Richs mention of the mats that Richard Morrill (a fellow Lardie who regularly posts here) had done for him - you may remember a fleeting glimpse in a picture on a Dux article on Lard Island - I decided to give them a whirl.

I was after a mat for the Sudan (so a little more than a straight forward desert mat) and a mat for Burma/Vietnam jungle.

Richard is a great person to deal with - a true Gent and really helpful. We discussed the brief and found some photos of what I had in mind. I asked for a 2ft x 2ft sample of each and Richard was happy to oblige (at an agreeably low cost). We made a couple of adjustments to get exactly the look I was after and the full sized mats have now arrived.

What can I say - absolutely fantastic! Exactly what I wanted - at a good price, done in good time with great attention to detail and with great and friendly service to boot!

I can't recommend them highly enough - and I'm not even on commission!

I'll be posting some photos on other forums in due course.

Cheers

Nick

I missed this article and now cannot find it. Is there a website we can go see/order from?

Greetings

I'm getting really tempted by these. Thanks for posting the pictures Derek.

btw the link direct to the mats page is http://www.montyswargamingworld.co.uk/monty-s-mats.html (Rob's link is a 404 as there's an 's' missing).
