Reversible Neoprene Space/Terrain Battle Mats Quickstarter

£6,187

149

We are launching an innovative new product - A double sided neoprene tabletop battle mat combining a space image & a terrain image. One Mat for many games and the perfect underlay for miniatures wargaming as well as board, card, tile and dice games.

There are two design combinations available.
 

Created by Loke BattleMats, this Kickstarter aims to expand on our range of neoprene battle mats by adding two new reversible skirmish mats.

These mats feature one side showing a space backdrop ideal for dog fighting space craft and the other side showing a terrain design for down to earth skirmishes.

These mats are 3' x 3' in size, made from double-sided mousemat (neoprene) material and have a durable stitched edge.

  This is a Quickstarter style Kickstarter campaign, so has a short duration and no stretch goals. This will enable us to go from Kickstarter campaign to production and fulfilment within a few months.

Featuring exclusive designs from Loke BattleMats, these 3'x3' mats offer you the best of our designs combined for the first time in one mat to cover a huge range of tabletop games! Saving Money and space, these are perfect for the travelling gamer as well as removing the need to buy multiple mats for the keen hobbyist.

Lets start with the material. 

The mats are 2mm neoprene with a stitched edge, giving you a high quality heavy weight feel. Each mat weights 1.3KG and will, of course, lay perfectly flat under its own weight. Sturdier and heavier than PVC or cloth, these mats are thick enough to deaden your dice rolls and will drape beautifully over a table edge if needed. So huge versatility and no more lost dice!

Loke BattleMats have also added our trademark stitched edge to these mats. This gives a really beautiful neat finish and ensures the mat will last you for years with no separation of the layers of fraying.

Now lets look at the images. 

Blue Stars / Desert

The material carries a vibrant stunning image (check out the prototypes in our video and images) and we have combined our favourite designs into these unique mats. Available in Red Stars/Grass and Blue Stars/Desert these designs offer infinite possibilities for miniatures wargaming as well as a vibrant backdrop for cards/tile/dice/RPG/board games.

By combining these stunning images we create a mat for all occasions!
 

The mats will be the same as the prototypes shown in the campaign video and photos used on this page.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with any print project is quality control - how the image prints onto the material, colour variations, finish quality and correct packaging to protect the product.

We already have a range of battle mats in neoprene, have established relationships with our suppliers and have samples printed of these new mats. We know the print and material quality, and we can speak with confidence when we say our products are top quality.

As we already have many viynl and rubber mats in our store and operate as a RPG book retailer we are familiar with shipping, packaging and delivery. We are confident that our kickstarter can be safely packaged and dispatched in good time at the best possible cost.

This is our fourth Kickstarter project and we are committed to reaching our goal, and confident we will do so. We will be promoting this Kickstarter heavily.
