I got a piece of 8'x10' black felt at a fabric store during a 50% off
sale.  I also just finished a templete to paint on a hex grid on one
with airbrush fabric paint (I used a different sized hex than Geo-hex). 
I'm just trying to decide whether to add a nebula of some sort, or maybe
just some very light wisps of orange, yellow and red.  Maybe a comet? 
When I'm done I'll have a blank starscape for FT on one side and a hexed
starscape for Silent Death on the other.

KR, maybe you could maybe make a mat with both sides done up, one with
hexes and one with not?  I understand it would probably cost more, but
it would be nice for those of us who play more than one system.  I don't
want to pay for one of each (which is why I'm making my own).  Of
please continue making the single sided mats as some wouldn't want to
for extra for both. ;)
