Moongrunt

Moongrunt U.S. Marines - pic from GZG website
This post is mostly a placeholder for some research I am doing into some Lunar gaming...maybe.  I just love those Moongrunt figures from GZG, and have been looking across the World Wide Web for some gaming mats and other inspiration.  A post on The Miniatures Page has led to some moon surface gaming mats:

CorSec Engineering - Cloth, expensive. Two large sizes.
GameMatz - Affordable, vinyl, attractive.  Only comes in 3'x3'.
Hotz ArtWorks - Cloth, a bit more expensive with shipping from Canada, and Hotz suffers with slow delivery practices and less than stellar communication, but they do eventually deliver on their orders.

I also have some sort of Zuzzy mat that is mostly gray, heavy vinyl, and I believe it comes from their Ruined Land series, and while it does not have craters, it still looks decent for the moon surface.  

Rules would be small skirmish, probably something like Tomorrow's War, where everyone is pretty much tech level one.  

Here is how nicely the Marines can look when one has painting talent...painted by Ralph from the (Putting) The Colour Into Space blog.  I hate the bastard (not really of course)...such a good painter!

Damn nice brushwork, Ralph!

Another chap covering this "period" is the Blades and Blasters website.  Good stuff there to steal...er, mimic!

So, perhaps when GZG has their next sale I will order a few packs.  Right now there is just a basic infantry pack for the U.S. Marines and the Chinese, but there are more infantry and support weapons on the way.

UPDATE:  Another company making nice looking mats is Deep Cut Studio.  Their asteroid mat looks really suitable and comes in PVC, cloth, and mousepad options with different sizing choices.

Fox Hill

While trying to determine my terrain needs for Fox Hill (Chosin Reservoir) I decided to do a bit of terrain research.  Adding these two images as a placeholder for future reference.
