Here is a quick video review of the Cigar Box "Desert" Battle Mat. A very nice 6' x 4' mat for your lay-out. Actually, the mat is closer to a 5' x 6' mat in size. Very nice indeed. The texturing is not painted on either, so it wont wear off or flake after long use. Perfect for those desert battles!
Note that this review is from my Wall of Shields Blog/Vlog. You might want to check that out to :)
What looks to be a "rise" in elevation if desired.
