Hotz ArtWorks announces the Red Sand Blue Sky Felt Gladiator Arena Game Mats are produced under licence from Two-Hour Wargames and have been especially designed for use with their Red Sand Blue Sky gladiator miniatures gaming rules system:

From their announcement:

The Red Sand Blue Sky arena game mats depict a top view of a stylized Roman arena with gate house entrances and are available in two sizes: Large and Small, in two base felt colors: Sand Grey and Sand Brown, and in two versions: Standard and Deluxe. The Deluxe version of this arena game mat is printed/air brushed in 7 colors, including the base felt color, while the Standard version is airbrushed/printed in 4 colors including the base felt color. Both game mats look stunning and will greatly enhance your gladiator gaming.

Game Mat Sizes:
Small RSBS Arena Game Mats: 14 x 14 Inches (35 x 35cm) approx
Large RSBS Arena Game Mats: 23.5 x 23.5 Inches (59 x 59cm) approx

Game Mat Pricing:
Small Standard Game Mat: $9.00 USD
Small Deluxe Game Mat: $14.00 USD
Large Standard Game Mat: $18.00 USD
Large Deluxe Game Mat: $24.00 USD

Note: These game mats are available with printed name tags, as depicted in the Red Sand Blue Sky rulebook. RSBS fans stated they prefer their game mats not to have the name tags printed onto their game mats, which is why our line of RSBS game mats are shown without the name tags — however, you may request you game mats to have name tags at no extra cost.

    I wish they made more (any) mats without the grid and/or hex on them. I’ve actually looked at these before an thought about buying them (not these new cool arena ones, but I think one of their space mats or something) and just didn’t want hex on it. By no means am I knocking or bashing their product, I know that these are endlessly awesome and useful for folks using grid/hex systems. I’f just looked at these for use with Spartan Games stuff, etc. and I don’t like the hex/grid for those systems because people can just pre-measure without even needing the tape … sort of runs contrary to those games. Anyway really solid looking stuff, I wish they had a non-grid/hex option and I’d probably give them some biz if so.

  • All of our game mats, including the arenas game mats can be made without grids. I just sent out an order of gladiator arenas without grids to two UK customers.
