warhammer 40'000 elite edition

“In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war.”

Warhammer 40’000 elite edition is one of the many starter sets for the 9th edition of Warhammer 40’000. The set is aimed at new hobbyists 

The elite box contains a total of 26 miniatures.

Space Marines

  • 1 x Space Marine Captain with Power Sword and Storm Shield,
  • 5 x Assault Intercessors
  • 3 x Outriders.


  • 1 x Necron Overlord,
  • 3 x Skorpehk Destroyers,
  • 3 x Canoptek Scarab Swarms,
  • 10 x Necron Warriors and 1 Plasmacyte.

Inside the box you will also find a 72 page elite manual, 2 reference sheets, a paper play mat, 10 d6 and 2 range rulers.

Don’t throw away the box as you can turn it upside down creating a piece of terrain needed in some of the missions in the elite manual.


This box is a great starting point for 40k  and contains everything you need to play. The rules are purposely simplified in this box allowing you to learn the basics before moving onto the full rulebook.

The cost of £65 is a good saving based on the RRP of the miniatures inside  but could seem a little steep for a new hobbyist looking to did their toes into Warhammer 40’000
