I've been looking to start my Dark Eldar army by picking up Gangs of Commoragh, but I think it's a good idea to get input from the experts. Has anyone here played it? Is it fun? Is it worth getting for the models and not just the game?

Thanks.

Just for the points it's absolutely worth it if you want to play the models.

As an example with € prices:

A box of GoC: 45€

2 boxes of Reavers and 2 boxes of Hellions: 22.5x2 + 31x2 = 107€

Two follow-up questions:

I hear that Reavers are really good this edition, what about the Hellions?

Also, how's the game itself?

Reivers and Hellions are both polarizing topics. Some people say they're too expensive, fragile or both and some say they're good enough. You will have to try it yourself because none of us can tell how good they will perform in your local games.

I sadly can't tell you anything about the boardgame since I haven't bought it myself yet, but I'm interested in it as well.

It all cuts down to 1 question for each unit :
- Reavers : they are fast, resilient, can hit hard in melee, have access to mortal wounds and blasters. But does it justify their price ? Yes : take them. No : don't take them.
- Hellions : they are fast, can hit hard in melee, have tons of shooting attacks and have hit and run, but they die to any form of shooting. Will you be able to protect them enough to use their offensive abilities ? Yes : take them. No : don't take them.

I played the boardgame once, it was pretty boring. It almost looks like an excuse made up to sell those unwanted Hellions models (they sucked in 7th edition). But yeah, for the price that box is awesome.
