Anyone know what brand this ocean/water mat is? Looks really nice, particularly for Caribbean.

No idea, but I agree: that is a beautiful ocean mat! Probably not appropriate for the North Atlantic and convoy battles or the North Sea and Jutland, though.

Watching to see what the answer is, too.

This is not a match but close.

Is it from the last WG naval game?

Looks like it might be the mat from the GW game Dreadfleet.

Could be the Dreadfleet mat (which is really nice, if a bit "fantasy" flavored with ghostly skeletal bits hidden in the waves): link

BTW What game is that?

And what are those vessels supposed to be? The one in the foreground has two masts and is square-rigged, but is too small to be a brig, has no back-step gaff mast for a snow, and no fore-and-aft sails at all as would be the case for a sloop, cutter, or similar vessel… or maybe it's just a "close enough" design with open space to hold the minis…
The one in the back appears to have a single mast? Can't tell.

I think you are correct Parzival

maybe it's just a "close enough" design with open space to hold the minis…

I think it might be by Deep Cut Studio.

All the best,

ON second thought I think – it's a FAT mat – I have one myself – really nice and comes in its own carrying case:

@Parzival – that game is Blood & Plunder. Large 28mm Buccaneers, currently covering the 17th century (but plans to expand to the early 18th early next year).

The game itself is awesome – the core mechanics covering Land/Sea/Amphibious equally well.

The front ship is a 17th c Bark. Should probably have a bigger Mainsail, but otherwise accurate for mid century (and with the usual allowances for being a gaming piece).

Rear ship is a sloop (Jamaica sloop more properly) Single masted, fore and aft gaff sail rig. I can vouch for it – its a beautiful model (I have 2).

The game has an incresingly large following – you should try it out if you like the period.

Double down on Firelock Games' Blood and Plunder. The whole model range is outstanding and the system is really good.

Pretty sure that isn't a Deep Cut product, the wave pattern doesn't look right – unless they've added since I bought mine.
