The Day of Reckoning is at hand – The Genestealer Cult is here! Come see the first wave of products coming this weekend.
Looks like someone got a hold of a few items a little earlier than the rest of us!
Wow! First off, I LOVE the cover! It looks fantastic. Now lets break down these boxes a bit:
Acolyte Hybrids Box:
- Well at least we now have those Tyranid Weapons confirmed and also the big “Buzz Saw” thing.
- These are very clearly NOT the same models from the Deathwatch: Overkill game.
- That one guy in the back has BUNDLES OF DYNAMITE!
Neophyte Hybrids Box:
- These are the later Generation Cultists for sure.
- Cool Icon/Standard Bearer.
- The Mining Laser is back and appears to have a Bi-Pod to support it.
- Lots of Shotguns and Autoguns, reminds me of Chaos Cultists. (Side note: OHHH we gotta have a Cultist throw down now!)
- I see the Heavy Stubber for another heavy weapon option.
- The “leader” model has a Mining Pick and a strange gun…hey, so does that other guy on the right side…
So that could totally be a flamer but the “canisters” look off as well as the nozzle. You know what that reminds me of:
A Web Pistol! I haven’t seen of of those in ages. Eh, it’s probably just a hand flamer though, right? I mean, it’s not like Games Workshop went all the way back into the annals of their gaming history to pull a new release out from “Nostalgia Town”… Oh wait.
So who’s excited for the Genestealer Cult!? Raise all 3 hands if you’re with me! Yes, even the Rending Claw hand, it’s okay Timmy.
