Features to Consider When Buying a Warhammer Gaming Mat


When purchasing a playmat for your Warhammer game, there are several important features to consider in order to find the one that will best suit your needs and playing style. Here are some things to consider:

  • The size of the carpet: Make sure the size of the mat is suitable for the size of your table and the size of your miniatures. A mat that is too small will be unnecessarily limiting, while a mat that is too large can be cumbersome.

  • The material : Warhammer game mats are usually made of fabric, rubber or vinyl. Each of these materials has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, cloth mats are generally more comfortable and pleasant to play on, but may be more fragile and require more frequent maintenance. Rubber mats are sturdier and easier to clean, but can be louder and less aesthetically pleasing. Vinyl mats are also sturdy and easy to clean, but can be slippery and uncomfortable to play on.

  • Le design : Of course, the design of the playmat is an important feature to consider. Be sure to choose a rug that suits your tastes and the Warhammer universe. Several designs are available, ranging from futuristic cityscapes to imaginary battlefields.

  • Print quality: The quality of the print on the playmat is important so that the details are visible and precise. Check that the colors are vivid and the lines are sharp and defined.

  • The price : Finally, the price is obviously an element to take into account when buying a playmat. Playmats for Warhammer can vary widely in price, so be sure to find a good value. Do not hesitate to compare the different models and read the opinions of buyers before making your choice.

After analysis, it turns out that the price of a mousepad playmat (the best value for money) is less than 10% of the cost of an army of 2000pts at wh40k

How to maintain your Warhammer playmat for maximum life


"You are a Warhammer fan and have just spent a small fortune on a new, high quality playmat. You want your playmat to stay in good condition for as long as possible so that you can continue to enjoy your games of Warhammer in Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to maintain your playmat and extend its life.

First, it's important to clean your playmat regularly to prevent dust and debris buildup. Use a vacuum cleaner or soft brush to remove surface particles, then use a damp cloth to remove any stubborn dirt or stains. Be sure to wipe the rug well to avoid any traces of moisture.

Then protect your mat from scratches and minifigure damage. Use hard plastic figure stands to protect your mat from scratch marks, and store your figures in storage boxes or pillows when not in use.

It is also recommended that you store your play mat in a dry place away from direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure to sunlight can alter the color and quality of your mat. If you must fold your rug for storage, do so carefully and avoid folding it in places that are folded too frequently, as this can cause permanent creases.

By following these simple maintenance steps, you can extend the life of your Warhammer gaming mat and continue to enjoy your favorite games for many years to come."
