Welcome to the next Kickstarter by Wargaming Industries. We are a small group of dedicated gamers that are hoping to launch a series of products in support of various games. 

Our first product is stellar playmats. These mats are durable with high quality art to enhance and support your gaming hobby. Why are our mats so special you ask? 

It’s the testing and quality. We have done various tests from spill and stain tests to heat and strength. We have taken the time to test vinyl, neoprene, and treated papers. All this to just to be sure our final product was durable and pleasing in appearance and texture. These mats can stand up to most of the common gaming mishaps with little or no damage. We have even dangled a 150lbs stunt geek from the balcony on one. We feel our choice of art and the quality of the output also exceeds many of the products available providing you a product that will last for years.

We are a new company and currently operate in one small area of one state. There are lots of gamers out there that really would love to have access to the products we are creating, but alas they have no means to get our toys. Kickstarter can give us this reach. 

Soon our products will be made available via a web store, but for now unless you live in the Chicago area you have no access to our products. Our playtest groups and our interactions with the Kickstarter community have helped us to refine our product and reach our current state. We now have maps, planets, asteroids, moons and several other art components in the pipeline we are hoping to share. In supporting this kickstarter you will help us in crossing the final development hurdles involved with our web store. The webstore will still take time to setup and test, meaning you will gain access to our map products months before others.  

These are images of our prototype maps, our final products have reduced the Wargaming Industries Icon by 1/3 making it blend with the background.

Another way we are different than any other map Kickstarter... we offer planets and objects as part of the mix! Our planets are 5.5" in width and our asteroid sheet is 11" X 5.5". The asteroids arrive as one solid sheet so you can customize the shapes of your asteroid fields. 

Wait... Did I see a 6' map now available? 

After requests at the local level and from our supporters, we have introduced the 6' map!

Risks and challenges

We have secured several sources for our materials and believe they can keep us well supplied. We still must keep in mind that issues beyond our control could disrupt our system. Labor Strikes, Weather and other factors could affect our ability to receive and ship product.

As of now the only issue we feel could be a problem is shipping. We are a small operation and if we were to receive a huge volume of orders it could overwhelm either our production or shipping system.

At this time we are limiting shipping to within the U.S. If we receive several requests for international shipping we will consider expanding the shipping options. Bear in mind that this item ships in a 37" tube and is considered special post in most regions.
