Is $100 a normal price point for a 4x6 like these?
I think they tend to run $40-60 on average from the companies I've seen. I think the increased price point is because of the double sided printing, since you're basically getting two mats in one.
While good for storage you also lose the ability to use both at once that way.
True, but for the home hobbyist that's rarely a problem. And it's not like you can't still buy 2 separate single sided mats from their store if you're needing multiple simultaneous setups.

I find it interesting that on the mats with created features like roads, that only the road widths seem to scale up, that all the other features, trees, bushes, water seem to be the same on the 10-15mm and the 25-28 mm versions.

I also freaked out on the cloud mat until I noticed it was intended for being used as a backdrop.

Going to review what mats I already have. Its a bummer that the do not offer a 1" square overlay, but all sorts of other sizes and hexes.

We have a new favourite photo from the Humungous Smiley Flower dimension of Old Man Willows tree of infinite (if slightly dodgy) dimensions.

We have a double sided Cigar plush from a previous KS. It is exactly what it says it is, but we prefer neoprene mats.

Like Bossman, I'm wondering how these deal with "snagging". I'm worried pushing models around will catch the fabric like material of them, although I really do like how easy and versatile these look.

I have had no issue with snagging.

Thanks for the heads-up on this Oldent. There was an thread somewhere comparing various mats which had me looking out for the next Cigar-Box KS particularly re the "plush" mats which I think I would prefer visually to the neoprene mats but not sure how they perform re slipping, creasing and stretching etc. My understanding is these ones in the KS are plush but not "as plush" ad the previous plush mats??? Would appreciate any comments or information on these mats. Cheers
