Games Workshop is teasing another power tool the Genestealer Cult has – who knew they were so “handy!”
I think the Genestealer Cult may have raided a hardware store based on this new teaser from Games Workshop. I always wanted an extra “hand” around to help with home projects…

“The day of reckoning draws near.
Find out more this weekend.”
That is some sort of enlarged Circular Saw to be sure only a lot less safety conscious.
It fits the mining theme and will probably make Ork players a tad jealous…but to be fair the Orks probably got their buzzsaw tech from raiding Imperial Settlements. It’s basically going full circle again.
Also, using some basic digital trickery we can kind of make out what’s going on in the background:
That is definitely a piece of art featuring another Hybrid Cultist packing some heat!
At this point I think it’s pretty safe to say that the Genestealer Cult is getting some new models. Based how this teaser looks and based on how the Deathwatch Overkill sprues were cut, Games Workshop would have to re-design the spures anyway to get the correct models in the units.
As you can see this sprue contains 4 different Genestealer Cult units and if the pricing rumors are true (and they pretty much are confirmed at this point) then there is no way GW can simply rebox this sprue into 4 different boxes.
Personally, I can’t wait! Bring on the cult because I haven’t been this excited about my Tyranids in a LONG time!
Why does the “Brighter Dawn” look like a gaping maw with lots of angry teeth? NOM NOM NOM!
