Oh my God! Games Workshop finally put their new stand-alone boxed game Gangs of Commorragh up for pre-order and they priced it … well … aggressively. At the same price as both Gorechosen and Lost Patrol they obviously want to offer another great value game, the relatively low price makes it easy to pick up. And this time they didn’t hold back regarding the value.
The box is jammed packed with two boxes of Reavers and two boxes of Hellions. Yes, that’s six Reaver Jet Bikes and ten Hellions on Skyboards. All this for less than half price (like 45 %). You also get a game that looks really cool and interesting on top of that.
Reavers are easily one of the coolest looking units in the Dark Eldar range and on the short list for the entire 40k range. They are futuristic, cyberpunk bikers. I’ve always liked them and can’t wait to get my hands on a couple of them.
Hellions on the other hand are not favourites of mine. The look a bit off with weird poses, like holding you staff thing behind your head. But I think that they can be made to look cool with a little effort. They sport the Green Goblins hover board after all.
The game seems fun, it looks a bit like X-Wing with the turn dial, moves and stuff like that. Or I don’t know, I haven’t played Gangs of Commorragh or X-Wing but I read it on the internet. Never mind, the really cool thing is of course the campaign rules. There are rules on how to advance you characters, build you gang and recruit new members.
Yeah, I pumped. How about you?
And with Chaos Space Marines picking up the pace and looking really strong at the moment I can’t wait to finally get a Dark Eldar army started. Two of these boxes, a Start Collecting box and a few random boxes would give you full army on the cheap.
I think it would fun moving all these fast units around. But damn the rules are lacking. Hahaha, 40k on hard mode, here I come again!
