Campaign & Gang Narratives

GW says the folloiwng about the linked games and ways to expand your gang:

” …Each warrior can advance, gain skills and be equipped with all the usual wargear you’d expect from Reavers or Hellions. While the customisation of individual models is high, the campaign mechanics themselves are simple and scalable, allowing anything from a couple to dozens of participants, making it ideal for a gaming club.

For those who want, you can also expand your murder-pack into a more powerful gang with more Hellions and Reavers from the Dark Eldar range (though you get easily enough to start off with in the box, with models to spare in both gangs).”

 

 

This kind of reminds me of a mashup of Necromunda and Star Wars pod-racing.  I like!

~Looking good!

 

  • Brandon Rutter

    alright well what DE aerial units can I add to customize my gang? I’m going to make a winged sslyth idc lol.

  • Allan Hansen

    hmmm nice 🙂 if the price is right I might get that 🙂

  • Antoine Henry

    Probably to sell the stock of Hellions as this is the worse unit ever in 40K :p

    • Laurence J Sinclair

      It’s a shame, since the models are soooo cooool.

      • ZeeLobby

        Agreed. And they weren’t even that hot back when DE were good.

        • OldHat

          Yea they were… back in 5th. How sad is that?

          • ZeeLobby

            Eh. helions were never really that good, even in 5th. They were OK. The strongest combo was still the Baron + beast packs. Bikes were strong as well with flybys, etc. But helions have always struggled with being OK in shooting and OK in combat. They were def better back then, but I wouldn’t say good.

          • OldHat

            It was the Baron who made them viable. I saw them do some good, but yea, Beast Packs overshadowed them. I think they were great and Hellions were “good”. But that was 5th… a simpler time.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. OK. That might be true. With Baron they definitely shined. Of course Baron made any unit better. Duke Sliscus, Lady Malys, Vect, etc. So many cool ways to build lists back then. The IP inquisition was a sad period for DE :(.

          • grenstauf

            I miss the Dais of Destruction….. it was so cool.

          • ZeeLobby

            Been twiddling my thumbs for years now for a new one 🙁

          • grenstauf

            I mean you COULD fake one up from the slaves still available on the GW site, some plastic card, a custom head, But yes a new Dais is something i’ve been wanting for years. Should have bought it when i had the chance. But hindsight is perfect, right?

          • Muninwing

            i loved playing Hellions in 4th — nobody expected anything of them, so when they did anything at all it was a surprise. i used them as a delivery system for a Haemonculus that i had converted, else they would have sat in their box forever.

            but no, they were awful. and the old metal models were subpar.

          • ZeeLobby

            K, I thought I was taking crazy pills.

    • uatu13

      Yeah, they’ve definitely fallen hard. I still remember when my huge pack of hellions with the Baron could trash most units without trying!

  • ILikeToColourRed

    if this is good value for the models then my DE might be getting some reinforcements…

  • Luca Lacchini

    A bit underwhelmed by the cardboard spires (I was hoping for something with a bit more tabletop oomph), but there’s double the contents since the first news trickled down, which is excellent for my budding DE force.
    So if the price is in the Gorechosen/Lost Patrol range, quite interested.

    • Rainthezangoose

      My thoughts exactly. However really felt like it needed a couple “bigger” spires to actually create an feel of what its trying to achieve, plus even a paper mat like the ones from the Warmachine starters just put under it would have worked wonders for cheap. Gonna looks stupid on any surface unless you have a black table!

      • Luca Lacchini

        Yeah. Might as well put my crafting skills to the test, and use the graphics/layout as a template for something larger, taller and more imposing.
        Cardboard and glue hold no longer any secrets to me…. ;-D

        • Rainthezangoose

          I think for me if its super cheap ill just get it for the models as i don’t have any hellions and you can never have too many jetbikes.

          I hope this isn’t just a cop out, and we at least see some White dwarf rules for other dark eldar stuff.

          • I imagine we will see expansion in WD, all the other new board games have.

    • Aezeal

      I think expecting that prince range for these models is a bit optimistic. Much more and more elaborate models than gorechosen and bigger and more elaborate models than lost patrol. I’d say 75 dollar.

    • Brandon Rutter

      i would bet on 60 as well. the scenery is worthless, just an obstacle marker(obv), and 16 models=3.75 a piece? lookin at GW 3x reavers is 40. maybe it will be more like 75, because that is a nice deal at 60. so there are approx. 90+ dollars of minis if you were to go into a GW store to buy them, or am I getting something wrong there. plus I wonder why the initial box contents were listed at half that.

    • DeadlyYellow

      Safer bet would be the $99 price tag of Bloodbowl. Hits around 2/3s of GW’s imposed model value depending on how you split it.

      • Luca Lacchini

        In all honesty, a somewhat higher price than Gorechosen/Lost Patrol (45 and 50 €) wouldn’t be all of this obstacle – minis alone are worth 108 € – but for a BB equivalent (105 €) I’d require better content. Campaign game or not.
        Maybe I’m jaded, greedy, or else, but 16 old minis, some cardboard scenery and a few tokens won’t cut it.

        • DeadlyYellow

          Can’t blame you. I’m just less optimistic when it comes to GW’s business model.

  • Andrew

    Eh, I was hoping for more variety in models. If its just Hellions and Jetbikes I’ll skip it.

    • euansmith

      I think it is intended to be a desperate, high speed, rumble in the skies above Commorragh; so there is a limit to who can take part. It could be smart for GW to add Vypers and the like in an expansion box.

      • Andrew

        I like the idea, but I wanted the second coming of Gorkamorka. 😉

        • euansmith

          And who in their right mind wouldn’t?

        • Orks meets hellions and then ‘borrow’ their sky boards…and away you go 😀

  • ZeeLobby

    Def looks like a discounted poorly selling minis box. Models have always been super sexy though…

  • Farseerer

    Do we have a price on this box?

    • Nope. It’s £79 worth of minis with a few card components etc. Maybe it will be £35 like Lost Patrol & Gorechosen or maybe it will be more like £60…

      • Ben_S

        I’m thinking £60, like Stormcloud Attack or whatever it’s called. £35 would be a significant discount just on the jetbikes.

        • More likely me thinks, Gorechosen had almost £20 saving on the minis alone but then it looks like it had more card bits, as does Lost Patrol.

  • memitchell

    Obviously, more GorkaMorka than Necromunda (is that a maneuver template, I see!). But, with much less, and much less elaborate, cardboard terrain (remember, even set in the desert, GM came with an entire fort, and Necro had a bunch of underhive terrain). Glad to see GoC has double the models than reported in the previous article (3 bikes did not a gang make). Let’s face it, even with “standard” models, this has promise.

  • NagaBaboon

    Oh that’s a little dissapointing. I had images of Dark eldar style necromunda scenary.

  • captkaruthors

    Wow. Really? This is it? what a let down. It doesn’t even have a proper “game board”. Ultra lame. I’ll skip this. So sad as the models are pimp…but I already have enough bikes and I sold all 20 of my hellions long ago because they suck.

  • marxlives

    How come when most games provide terrain and board, these one offs just seem….well down right spartan. Board games like Mice and Mystics, Level 7 Omega Protocol, or Dead Zone make this one off from GW seem woefully sparse.

  • krisbrowne42

    Here’s to hoping there’s a formation that comes with it… I actually love Hellions but without Move Through Cover or Skilled Rider to make them less prone to wiping out in terrain they’re a tough unit to work with.

  • James Eggers

    Box dimensions appears similar to Gorechosen and Lost Patrol. If this box is $60 USD like those 2, these boxes will probably fly off the shelves for DE players. Gorechosen was about $120 USD worth of figures in that box. This DE one appears to be around $130 USD worth of minis. $60 USD would be a steal for 2 sets of Reavers regardless.

    • Donald Lindsey

      If this is $60, I really approve, and it will sell well.

  • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

    This was disappointing. Not even a glimpse of what the gameplay involves. I’ll likely buy a single copy and convert the Hellions into Beastmasters, but until I know what the game is actually about, I’m not too keen on buying this.

    • In the Warhammer Community post that this info is lifted from they say they will put out some gameplay info and staff gangs.

  • Noah Jerge

    My guess is that it is a DE version of X-Wing.
