The game arrived last Thursday and very good it seems too, however, there is no playing area and a plain table top is not going to cut it. I looked around and you can buy some very expensive mats, but I've not played the game yet so I went for the cheaper option.
A piece of black felt 1m x 1.5m cost me £4.94 from eBay. It arrived today and I pegged it out on the washing line. I then grabbed a handful of Vallejo paints, the lid off of an old tub and an old toothbrush (old in that I was still using it this morning).
Squirt some paint onto the lid, pick up with toothbrush and 'flick' the bristles at the felt. I predominately used white, but also did a few 'blasts' of red, blue and yellow.
It seems to have turned out ok and was a bargain at under a fiver!
