I recently got into a game about 2 months back and when we got into our first battle the DM used metal minis and a mat. Now since then I am collecting the new minis for use in my own game and can't wait to play. But I am curious who all here uses them and a mat in there game. Please give me details, do you players like to use the mat? Do you do it but dont like it as much? Anything on the subject would be appreciated.
