They do look cool, but £34 sounds a bit pricy for what amounts to a printed picture.
It says they are untextured game mats.
For something like the star wars game, the space one might be cool. But for 40K or WFB, I can't really see them as better than the gaming table Matt plays on.

It was the price that made me wonder what they were made of.

x-wing did cross my mind...

They are made of PVC, according to a post I bug up on Dakka: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/po ... 53077.page

Still nothing that says how thick the material is.
Still, looks like it would be okay to be able to roll our for a night's gaming on any tabletop.
Turn any large enough table into a gameboard instantly.
Someone on Dakka said shipping to the UK is only £2.50 so not a bad price for it overall.
Depends on the quality of the mat though, and how well they hold up to use.
For that, only time will tell.
