In case anyone (like i) is tempted to buy their double sided neoprene mat, don't. Its utter toilet.

http://www.firestormgames.co.uk/desert- ... at-48-x-72

Grass side is actually not that bad, if a bit cartoony, though really i wanted the nice photo realistic desert side - instead i got a shiny gold blanket with badly repeating splodge pattern which looks like someone splashed the exact same cup of coffee on it 3 times in a row.

Not only that but its 3" short...

Will be returning.

Well, damn. I really liked the double-sided feature, and it looked nice in photos. Will steer clear of it, thanks for the review.

Apparently I wasn't the only one who returned it. I believe Firestorm are taking it up with Battle front. On the plus side, Firestorm were absolute legends and refunded purchase and postage without a quibble and tried hard to find me an alternative.

btw - www.gamemat.eu do some double sided ones, but i'm a bit nervous about ordering something I haven't seen again. Think i will go Deepcut next time.

I asked about these at adepticon, as they were supposed to be out last Q4. Apparently, their factory in China closed up and they had to track down the mats. I wonder if they ever did, or if these were a rush job from someone else.

I emailed BF about them but never got a response.
