Gaming Mat Ideas

You can consider using a fleece mat to be your gaming table mat. Gaming mats can turn the boring rectangular look of your table into a more wonderful and nicer looking wargame table.

Get a plain fleece instead of the printed one. Then you can be creative by spraying mottled colors to the mat.

2. Use Tie Dye Fabric

You are free to use any material to build the top of your wargame table. But if you want a cheap option, consider using styrene insulation foam.

It is light in weight so you can move it easily when you’re not using the wargame table. But it is sturdy enough and will support some terrain and armies.

4. Prepare the 3D Terrain
