Official DzC Gaming Mat! Urban Zone F.A.T. Mat

Frontline Gaming and TableWar’s Gaming Mats are beautiful, durable mats, perfect for tabletop games. You can get yours here: http://store.frontlinegaming.org/fat-mat%3A-urban-zone-4x4/dp/6355

These mats are extremely durable, printed on a water resistant surface affixed to a neoprene backing. That means the mat won’t slide around on the table, lays flat, resists water and looks amazing. This mat was designed with Hawk to make a fantastic playing surface for your DzC games!

They now come with a sturdy, nylon zip-up F.A.T. Bag for storing and transporting your F.A.T. Mat, and full color F.A.T. Tag so that you can see which mat is in the bag without having to open it, and to write your name on to show which mat is yours

I pre-ordered mine and got it a few days ago. Ill do a full review but I will tell you a few things:

the good:
-its basically a huge mouse pad (so much so that I put it upside down and told my friend i got a 4x4ft mouse pad) it doesn't slide and is water resistant, wont tear easily.
-looks good and has a fair amount of detail (and unlike the cityscape/ruinscape tiles, it is matte so that pictures can be taken at steep angles without the shine).
-easy to roll up and take with you places.
-the bag is handy and a nice addition.

the bad:
-the standard buildings don't fully cover up the park tiles or the parking lots like they mentioned in the video on the frontline gaming website.
-when rolled up and placed in the bag, the mat folds if you use the two handles in the center (this can be remedied with a length of pvc pipe to roll inside the mat) not a big deal but something to know
-unless you have lots of smaller terrain, the games could get repetitive
-A little "too clean" for 200+ years of warfare for my taste.

more to come in a real review. if you have any questions or want me to take a specific picture of the mat let me know.

So I ordered one of these mats through my LGS (Go4Games) about 5 weeks ago. According to the LGS they've had problems getting them shipped and even after shipping, it's taken like 2 weeks. I still don't have my mat.

Not sure if this is an LGS problem or a manufacturer problem.

Also, there never was an answer to my question if there is going to be a 6x4 version. I get that they're probably a small company but a licensed product should have 'some' representation about it, shouldn't it?
