I can't make it out either. Probably needs an official SJGames answer.

Shipping is more expensive and slower than ever. And totally out of our control.

I went with 4 mats to be able to host an 8-player tourney. That cut the shipping to less than half only $9.50 each!

The sides have the CRT info and damage trackers for two Ogres on each side. It's also not just Mark III and Mark V; the shading in the tracker is there to cover Mark I, II, III, III-B and V to allow for as many types of ogres as possible without it getting weird. The focus was on multi-ogre scenarios like Mark IIIs attack, etc. Using different colored counters should give a lot of options (many mark I on the board at once, for example).

The main type of ogre that was not included was anything with a missile rack (Mark IV, Mark VI). Adding counters for the racks and missiles started to get unwieldy.

Brilliant! I want to do the same.
Heh, I wonder if "Steve vs. the World" OGRE events will be on these mats?

Are we getting close to shipping? I got an email on 6/13 asking for shipping address verification. Thanks in advance.

Unknown. As previously reported (the lack of a "project" page makes it tough to share news quickly), the playmat printer suffered an equipment failure and they are recovering from that setback as fast as they can.
