The Chessex Battlemats have arrived!

At 7.30am the doorbell rang ... and the postman delivered the Chessex Battlemats that I ordered at 6.30pm on Sunday evening!

Not only does this enable me to tick one more thing off my 'Preparations for COW' list, it is also an example of the excellent service that some online retailers provide. In this case I bought the Battlemats from a UK-based supplier, RPG Miniatures (they also trade under other names, including Legend Games, The Games Place, and The Top Trumps Place).

Without the prompt and efficient service of online suppliers like this company I would have had to hunt round the small number of games shops in London and the South East of England to find these Battlemats. This would have taken me time that I do not have available at the moment as well as a considerable amount of money that I would have had to spend on the travel involved.

  2. Bluebear Jeff,

    Sometimes wargamers are very good at complaining about poor service; I just thought that I would try to even up the balance just a bit!

    All the best,
