Hotz Mats. Are they still in Business?
I'm after one of his Command And Colors game mats.

Yep… Had some desert roads and a desert mat a couple of months back.

Sweet.

Just don't expect to get your order by Christmas.

You mean that you MIGHT get it by Christmas. Christmas 2017.

He still owes me a mat or 50 dollars from 3 years ago. Pfft.

I order a Mat a month or so ago and it arrived in about 4 weeks time.

Very hit or miss it seems.

Always great service and prompt delivery to me here in the U.K.

Great service

I am ordering custom 10 x 6 desert, and snow mats.

I have nice 2 sets of the asphalt roads, and a nice European fields mat, for aircraft games….

Good quality stuff. I recommend it.

laretenue15 May 2017 1:58 p.m. PST

I'm saving up for the European fields, and strongly suspect that nothing else will work as well in my scale.

But can anyone tell me how well Hotz mats will drape over terrain contours placed underneath them? Or with another fabric acting as an intermediate layer.

williamb15 May 2017 9:30 p.m. PST

They will drape quite well. I have placed terrain under them several times with no problems.

ScoutJock09 Jun 2017 3:52 p.m. PST

Put in an order in for some fields and roads back in the beginning of April…
Nothing yet. Hmmmmmm.

williamb12 Jun 2017 7:19 a.m. PST

Put in an order about the same time as ScoutJock and got mine two weeks ago. Nothing special just a plain green mat.

I heard back from Eric after a second request for an update email. His production was slowed by some health issues so I wished him a complete recovery and am patiently waiting for my merch.

Hello,

I'm tempted to get another Hotz mat (field pattern). I haven't ordered from Hotz for years (and had no problem then).

Anyone have recent experience (since the last date on this thread, mid June?).

Thanks,
Ed M

ScoutJock02 Aug 2017 5:47 a.m. PST

I finally received my merch including some 6mm fields in mid July, basically three months from order to receipt. They look great and Eric did apologize for the delay citing health and production issues.

Thanks, ScoutJock.

Works for me!

Best,
Ed M
