Battlefront's Remagen mat is far from a new product, but I finally got my grubby hands on it and wanted to let everyone take a look. It's important to think through what this product is trying to do. It may seem obvious, but I can already hear the complaints of it looking unrealistic!
The point of this mat is to allow a very significant piece of terrain for a set piece battle affordable, portable, and simple. Not all of us are willing to spend the time, money, and effort to create a board that is (for all intense and purposes) one use. I struggled for a long time deciding whether or not to build a D-Day board back when the book first came out. I'm glad I didn't, cause I maybe play the beach assault mission once per year. It's not that it isn't fun or that building that terrain isn't awesome- but most of us have limited space and that's where these mats come in!
Overall, this is a solid product that delivers on its promise: a striking, overbearing terrain piece on a budget that you can roll up and put away easily. I'm happy with it- hopefully we can try a major bridge assault scenario soon so you all can see it in action!
