Review - Elite Edition set for Warhammer 40,000 Ed9 from Games Workshop

The gaming mat looks like the First Strike Playing Mat in the Ed8 First Strike Starter Set. I assume my review of that gaming mat is also true to this one.

Opening the pack

The box is just an outside box and an inside tray, just a bigger version of the Warhammer 40,000 Ed9: Recruit Edition set. (Unlike the Warhammer 40,000 Ed8: Dark Imperium set.)

The gaming mat

The gaming mat included in the WH40K Recruit Edition and WH40K Elite Edition is the same shiny paper mat. It's half the size compared to the recommended gaming area size for the smallest game. It works okay with the beginner scenarios provided in the manual for the boxed set, but you'll need two gaming mats for a Combat Patrol  / Incursion sized game, four gaming mats for a Strike Force sized game, and eight gaming mats for an Onslaught sized game.
