Spray-painted bespoke game mats suitable for X-Wing and other war-game miniatures!
Do you want to do battle in a universe of your creation? If so then this project allows you to get a unique spray-painted high quality game mat, that no-one else will own, from just £60.
- YOU choose the colour scheme.
- YOU choose the composition.
- It’s a piece of original artwork which will literally be your territory to battle on and defend!
Whilst the Kickstarter project is running you can grab yourself a bargain and get your own custom 2’x2’ game mat for just £60 or 1mx1m for just £95 (including UK delivery!). I do also offer a printed mat on premium vinyl for just £45. This will be of the space mat you see below!
Other than the unique design and original artwork... what makes these game mats so great?
The material! It’s Heavy Duty Magnetic Gloss!
- This gives amazing durability and makes the mat incredibly easy to roll without any crumples or creases!
- It’s easy to transport!
- It lays and stays flat! Other material tends to stay rolled.
- Unlike PVC material it cannot fray!
- It’s waterproof and weatherproof! - It’s vehicle signage quality (0.8mm thick), so you can even stick it to your car if you want to!
- Unlike cheap PVC mesh material, both the magnetic gloss and premium vinyl material give a beautiful surface to play on with no material lines.
- No need to worry about low resolution, grainy or blurred printed images; you can't get higher resolution than real paint with my bespoke spray-painted mats!
*Please note: Although it is unlikely and the spray paint reduces the magnetic effect on the playing surface, it is advised not to place items on it that could be damaged by magnetism. E.g Bank cards or electronic devices.
Why support this project?
Besides getting your own custom made mat it will help me get the funds for material, cutting and measuring equipment and safety equipment.... my lungs can only take so much spray paint and I would like to get decent respiratory equipment before I start sounding like Darth Vader!
I also really want to get my space artwork out there; I have combined my love of art, space and gaming to create something others with the same passions can also enjoy!
If you like the project and the prospect of creating a universe to battle in, then please support me in whatever way you can :)
I want to make my Space mats available to as many people as possible therefore international delivery is available! it has an additional cost which is listed on the pledge rewards which I have made as low as possible. This listed additional cost for outside of the UK is for Europe and World Zone 1 (America etc). http://www.royalmail.com/international-zones#worldzone1
If you are located in Australia or other locations listed as World Zone 2 on this link http://www.royalmail.com/international-zones#worldzone2 then please send me a message to discuss postage costs as they will unfortunately be higher.
Risks and challenges
Quantity- If this really takes off I may get a lot of orders! You will notice on the rewards that there is a limited number of mats available. Don't worry! I will add more if these all go, but it will just have a later estimated delivery.
Timing/communication- Due to the nature of the mats' composition being created by you there will be various messages being pinged across to get an idea of what you want. Therefore creation of your mat will be quick or slow depending on your response time.
Detail- I am happy and excited to create the mats with your composition and colour choices, but some detailing could be too specific- for example, requesting number of continents visible on a planet and intricate details would be too difficult to create with the spray paint medium. Acceptable levels of detail are: number of planets, approximate size of planets, placements of planets, colour, background colour, star density etc.
Magnetics- One of the main issues that I will face is working with magnetics. For example...if I were to become a robot the mats may just stick to me, Which would make painting them exceedingly hard.
One of the great things about the custom made spray-painted mats is that there are no external companies to rely on. It is all managed and created by me. The only thing I wait for is next day delivery of the materials. Meaning that these pledges will have minimal/no issues with timing and definitely no issues with print quality.
With regards to the printed space mats- I will be working closely with the printing company and yourselves to ensure there are minimal hold ups. I have tested various different vinyl and pvc products to ensure I found the highest possible quality for the price. Hence it being a premium material.
Don't forget you just can't beat an original! But the next best thing are the premium prints!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
