    Question Mats - what are people choosing?

    For the KickStarter's Deepcut mats, what are you going for... and why?

    Grass as it is the most generically useful.
    Mind you then I went for Medieval Ruins as an add in as it looked almost as useful as the Grass mat. I thought the two snowy mats, while pretty, were too specialised even though we play Frostgrave. I was surprised they made it to the final list because they look so specialised and I can only attribute this to the popularity of Frostgrave. As with any of the details for the Kickstarter I think seeing the percentages for each choice would be fascinating.

    Yes I was surprised by the selection offered too (I was expecting cobblestone to make the cut). I'd also love to see the percentages. Frostgrave is first on the list, so I am guessing it was the most popular choice.

    Medieval ruins, I have plenty of terrain boards, green cloths and hexon tiles already so didn't see the point of another grass surface. Once again the snow ones were too limited in scope, yes I play frostgrave but none of my figures are snow based so they can be used in other systems and for role playing.

    Ruins for me too. I was hopinng the cobblestones would be an option but I may just have to buy that privately.

    As others have said, the grass was never an option as I have plenty of grass tables at my club. I've also built snow tables before, and will again, for Frostgrave etc to the ruins seemed the clear option and certainly the hardest to make any other way.

    Medival ruins, what we dont have in our group already.

    We have a grass mat from a different company. But gonna get the 4x6 grass mat from DCS, because we have the beach mat. That way we can create a 8x6. And if we get the water one, we can have a massive 12X6!

    I have to admit none of my choices made it through to the final selection, so I am in a bit of a quandary about which mat to select myself.

    Currently I have gone for the medieval ruins mat as the most general purpose. However, it doesn't really seem a great mat to put intact Mordanburg buildings on. Daldorr/Mogenbridge might work a little better, though the rubble is a different colour to the 4Gound ruins. Grass to me works even less well for this purpose; plus I've already got grass well covered (with mats and flocked tiles). I need a Frostgrave mat, so I am wondering about going for one on those, even though it would have nothing to do with Fabled Realms. Winter to me is just too much snow (plus I already have a eastern front winter mat).

    I may end up going with medieval ruins and doing an add-on Frostgrave (since it is cheaper than buying from Deepcut direct). Or, Plan B, I may just buy a cobblestones mat for Mordanburg, and a muddy fields one for Fyrburgh; in which case I will get a Frostgrave mat as my "free" selection. Plan C is to expand my medieval urban tiles set for Mordanburg, but my issue with times here is the fact that are on a regular square grid, which I don't think is organic enough for Mordanburg.

    Thanks for all the answers - it is really helping me to think about this. Medieval ruins seems to be the most popular by far.

    I am curious about the Deep Cut mats myself, I liked a lot what I saw of them at Salute but I was thinking of them more for D & D and thus gridded, the extra bits of scatter terrain, farmhouses, woods and the like impressed me a lot.

    DC mats are great quality. We use them in our gaming club.

    I was surprised to see two winter mats among the four choices. I wish there was an option for cobblestone to fit to the undamaged Mordanburg terrain. I will choose medieval ruins probably.
