Codex – Genestealer Cults
Today will be our first official review and with the latest release of Genestealer Cults Codex why not start there?!
The codex is great! The fluff is very interesting and brings back a lot from the original Genestealer cult back in the day. I’m still waiting on Gangster Don style overlords riding pimped out limos but the mining theme so far is awesome.
There is a lot of creative potential with this Codex as well as the broken factor. Formations are nice as well as having multiple psychic HQ’s not to mention the Goliath vehicles. If your a fan of Guard or Nids this army wont let you down. After speaking with the power gamer part of the studio he has suggested Acolyte Hybrid spam which hands out a bucket load of rending attacks especially when taken in The Doting Throng formation backed up by a Magus. At 40pts a 5 man unit in a standard 1850 point game most army’s will have a hard time dealing with all those rending claws.
The new Cult of Ambush rule also allows your warriors to get right up in the enemies face eliminating the need for transport.
Oh and did we mention Tyranid Allies of Convenience!
We are eager to see what you guys are doing for yours and maybe a bit about what worked well and not so well.
Thank you for your time,
