Codex: Genestealer Cults $50

60030117001_genestealercultscodexstdedeng01

Vile chanting fills the air, marked by blood-chilling shrieks of alien beasts – the xenos creed shall rise! Thousands of cultist voices are raised in prayer to their Patriarch, a living god from beyond the stars. Shadows in the distance become a seething tide, a living wave of hybrid creatures that boils out from dank and slimy lairs. Vehicles modified with whatever weapons can be cobbled together careen around the horde’s flanks, delivering yet more terror. Sinister, charismatic leaders cast dominion over their enemies as well as their underlings. The Cult has long-prepared for this day of reckoning, and its swollen ranks will surely conquer the world.

60030117001_genestealercultscodexstdedeng04

This 104-page, full-colour hardback Codex features a wealth of gaming content:

– comprehensive information on the Genestealer Cults, the gruesome and frankly unsettling story of their rise from a single organism to unstoppable, planet-devouring insurrection;
rules for Genestealer Cults miniatures, the scavenged weapons they use to slaughter their victims, and army-building lists allowing for Hybrid and Brood Brother cultists drawn from the Astra Militarum;
– formations that make use of both the Genestealer Cults and Astra Militarum ranges, with notes on the wargear that Genestealer Cults scavenge and use for their own sinister ends;
– 6 new Tactical Objectives and the complete Broodmind Discipline: new Psychic Powers used by Magi and Patriarchs;
– the Cult Ambush rule: dependent on a dice roll, Genestealer Cults units can set up anywhere on the table, deploy and charge in the same turn, and burst from their hidden lairs to surprise and engulf the enemies of the Cult;
– a showcase of beautifully-painted Citadel miniatures, presenting the colours and icons of the Cults that lurk below.

 

Acolyte Hybrids / Hybrid Metamorphs $40

99120117003_genestealeracolytehybrids11

Basking in the sheer alien glory of the patron that infected them, Acolyte Hybrids croon and hiss in the gloom. When the time comes to throw off the torn robes they use to disguise their foulness, the Acolyte Hybrids crawl up to the surface and into the sunlight, their grotesque faces twisted in subhuman glee. They display a bizarre blend of the species from which they hail – the speed of a Purestrain Genestealer twinned with human cunning is a potent combination. These hybrids fire off volleys of pistol fire, before descending on the enemy in a riot of claws, close combat weapons and screamed praise to their masters.

99120117003_genestealeracolytehybrids10

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 5 Acolyte Hybrids, armed with autopistols, close combat weapons, blasting charges and rending claws. Included are hand flamers, a heavy rock saw, a heavy rock drill (with backpack), a heavy rock cutter and options for an Acolyte Leader – this model can use one of 2 special heads, and can be armed with a bonesword and lashwhip.

This kit can optionally be used to assemble 5 Hybrid Metamorphs. Supplied with 5 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

99120117003_genestealeracolytehybrids09

Hybrid Metamorphs scuttle forward with preternatural speed, weapon limbs thrashing and biomorphs pulsing with toxins. Spontaneously spawned in a cult’s latter cycles, they are thought to be created when a Tyranid hive fleet nears a prey planet that is host to a Genestealer Cult. When the day of the uprising arrives, it is the Hybrid Metamorphs that take pride of place upon the front line. In a storm of iron-hard claws, sinewy tentacles and slashing talons they crush and hack their way through everything in their path, an inspiration to the broodkin that worship them as sainted heroes of the cult.

Neophyte Hybrids $40

99120117004_genestealerneophytes10

By the time a Genestealer Cult launches its insurrection, its Neophyte Hybrids make up a horde of thousands. Weathered and toughened by a life of hard labour, each cultist features the inhuman reactions and strength their alien genes gift them. These third and fourth generation hybrids can pass as human – sinisterly, some can even infiltrate the Astra Militarum, such are their blessings. When the cult signals their attack, Neophytes swarm from sewers, catacombs and shadowy barracks, overwhelming their enemies and seizing control of entire planets within hours.

99120117004_genestealerneophytes08

This multi-part plastic box set contains all the components necessary to assemble 10 Genestealer Cult Neophyte Hybrids, armed with autoguns, autopistols and blasting charges. Any model can replace their autogun with a shotgun – 10 are included – and 2 models can take special weapons chosen from a seismic cannon, heavy stubber or mining laser.

One model can be upgraded to a Neophyte Leader, armed with either a web pistol, autopistol or bolt pistol and a chainsword, power pick or close combat weapon. One model can take a Cult icon.

99120117004_genestealerneophytes09
Supplied with 10 Citadel 25mm Round bases and 2 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

Genestealer Cults Dice $20

99220106003_genestealercultdice01

A set of 20 translucent purple 16mm dice, featuring a Genestealer Cults icon in place of the 1. Miniature pictured for scale purposes and is not included.

99220106003_genestealercultdice03 99220106003_genestealercultdice04

Warhammer 40,000 Datacards: Genestealer Cults $13.50

60220117001_genestealercultdatacardseng01

Containing the seven psychic powers of the Broodmind Discipline from Codex: Genestealer Cults, and 36 Tactical Objective cards (including the 6 unique Genestealer Cults Tactical Objectives from the Codex), this set of Datacards is an essential purchase for the Genestealer Cults collector.

BUNDLE TIME

Genestealer Cults Acolyte & Neophyte Hybrids $80

99020117007_genestealerculthybridbundle01

By the time a Genestealer Cult launches its insurrection, its Neophyte Hybrids make up a horde of thousands. Weathered and toughened by a life of hard labour, each cultist features the inhuman reactions and strength their alien genes gift them. Acolyte Hybrids are equally vile progenies of the Genestealer Cults, crawling up to the surface and into the sunlight, their grotesque faces twisted in subhuman glee.

This bundle contains the components necessary to assemble a unit each of Acolyte and Neophyte Hybrids. You’ll receive a box of 10 Neophyte Hybrids, armed with autoguns, autopistols and blasting charges, and a box of 5 Acolyte Hybrids armed with autopistols, close combat weapons, blasting charges and rending claws. Supplied with 15 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

Subterranean Uprising $120

99020117003_genestealersubterraneanuprisingbundle01

Beneath the surface of the prey world the uprising hunts unseen. The most physically powerful of the cult’s hybrids are gathered by their Primus before the battle, united by a gestalt will to swarm as one like scuttling insects on the march. They move into a preordained position before bursting onto the battlefield in a critical strike upon a valuable target: the command position of the foe, or a well-defended artillery emplacement. From the darkness these born killers erupt, boiling out from sewer grates and hidden crypts with claws clacking and weapon-limbs thrashing. The enemy, previously oblivious, scramble to react to the sudden ferocity of the Primus’ secret strike. So swift is the broodspawn’s assault that few adversaries can land a telling blow before they are cut to pieces.

This bundle contains the miniatures necessary to assemble the Subterranean Uprising, a formation found in Codex: Genestealer Cults. You’ll receive a 5-man set of Hybrid Metamorphs and 2 5-man sets of Acolyte Hybrids!

Genestealer Cults Codex, Painting Guide, Cards & Dice $93.50

60020117001_genestealercultsrulesbundleeng01

Warhammer Quest: Arcane Heroes $55

99120799002_silvertowerarcaneheroes03

The tales and legends of the Silver Tower are numerous indeed; each recalling a different band of unlikely allies, champions finding themselves banding together in the lair of a Gaunt Summoner of Tzeentch. Some seek the glory of a boon from the Gaunt Summoner, others wish to learn his true name and thus strike him down – all must navigate the sheer horror of the Silver Tower.

99120799002_silvertowerarcaneheroes02

Only the greatest champions of both good and evil can hope to succeed. These five heroes have found themselves subject to the Gaunt Summoner’s ever-shifting domain:

The Genestealer Cult is here are Games Workshop has a bunch of cool stuff out for Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower. It’s a GOOD weekend to be ready to game!

 

Have at it folks!

  • Nubu

    The GSC dice are crap. Thematic but hard to read.

    • Donald Lindsey

      Afraid of that…but still want them.

    • Manwiththedogs

      They also keep putting the icon in place of the 1. Other companies have learned people want to see their factions icon when they roll sixes, not ones. When will GW learn?

      • ZeeLobby

        It’s really mind bottling at this point…

        • Shinnentai

          Yeah mind bottling – like when GW’s decisions get so crazy it gets your thoughts all trapped like in a bottle.

          • euansmith

            And those thoughts are buzzing like trapped bees, and GW is sniggering, like some unpleasant child with jammy fingers.

          • ZeeLobby

            Exactly ;D

      • DJ860

        I’d be interested to see someone take a look when they buy and open them. I’ve seen it before where the mockups are on the 1 but then are actually on the 6 on the production line dice.

    • Artyom Trityak

      Often play versus them, really annoying…

  • Boondox

    Please tell me those arms will fit on the old metal Genestealer Hybrids? The originals are hard to find.

    • Commissar Molotov

      I think you might be in luck – they look VERY similar.

  • Commissar Molotov

    15 small plastic models for $120…

    …wat?

    • benn grimm

      I was literally just thinking the exact same thing…must be a typo, that is insane…

      • RS TROUT

        Knowing geedubs, it’s not.

        • Cergorach

          It’s three boxes of $40 each and 20 models, but only 15 are used in the dataslate.

          Through Wayland I’m paying about €23,40/box, certainly not cheap, but I bought one of each for conversion parts, for the rest of the Overkill boxes…

      • Ed Butlar

        Think its Australian dollars

    • BaronSnakPak

      If the points cost is similar to the overkill datalsates then GSC players are going to be spending a LOT of money.

      Even with the lack of customization the overkill box is a much better deal, with 39 GSC minis included for a 600 pt formation.

      • Commissar Molotov

        I’m fortunate enough to have an old, old 2nd Ed. GSC army, so I’ve got plenty of hybrids to convert. Stick a few tentacles on ’em and call ’em metamorphs, eh?

        • BaronSnakPak

          I wouldn’t have an issue playing against em. Hopefully ebay will have some bits deals.

          I already have the overkill GSC, and I’m planning to really only use them as allies and in Kill Team, so I’ll probably only get 1 or 2 boxes if the temptation takes hold.

          • Commissar Molotov

            Kill Team Cult? Great idea!

          • BaronSnakPak

            They may be squishy and average shots, but 28 gribblists on the board still sounds like a good time.

          • Donald Lindsey

            I’ve played a couple of games of Kill Teams withe the 28 man cult list…fantastically effective!

      • Cergorach

        I’m waiting on having the Codex in hand before buying anything else.

    • Dr.Clock

      One box is worth it just to get bits to have a convincing conversion for the ‘alternate build’ using other cheaper models as bases IMO… I’ll likely end up getting Victoria Minis legs and torsos which I’ve coveted a long time and converting them up as Acolytes, while using the 5 in the box + 5 Genestealer bodies as ‘metamorphs’. Between these two boxes there are enough heads for 14 additional dudes, and arms for pretty much that many, if you’re clever about it. Failing that, the bits probably pop right on to the Deathwatch ones. These kits are clearly more about getting plenty of special equipment and mutations out the door rather than ‘numbers’, which the Overkill box provides quite well.

      Anyhow – it’s a great release IMO. The bundle is probably not going to attract the more seriously value-minded, but it WILL give you all the bits you’d need to fully convert the Overkill bodies with new arms in addition to the 15 from these boxes. Ho Hum…

      Cheers,

      The Good Doctor.

    • Ed Butlar

      Australian dollars, saw the same thing a few days ago somewhere else

    • georgelabour

      15 scyks or tie fighters for Xwing would cost you…

      • Commissar Molotov

        Yeah, but wouldn’t that be like three full “armies” for X-Wing?

        • georgelabour

          That would be a separate topic. The only comment I saw was one about price.

          The fact remains that some cheap low quality plastic and shiny cardboard is actually more expensive. Seemingly because of its passably average paint job.

  • Ed Butlar

    I think the Genestealer cult could be some of the best models GW have ever produced. I love them, they have really knocked it out the park with this one.

    • Shinnentai

      Yeah the Deathwatch Overkill sculpts were superb and these releases look to expand on that. Tough to reconcile these sublime sculpts with the “direction” GW have taken AoS.

      • Ed Butlar

        They just weren’t selling Warhammer fantasy models anymore, you could buy 2nd hands on ebay for half the price and most of the people who played it were buying other brands. Its sad because I bet it really upset a lot of them there. But I am sure it will return at some point.

  • Heinz Fiction

    The Genestealers look really neat. Can’t say the same about the AoS stuff…

  • orionburn

    I’m probably behind on this one, but will this be a true ally to Nids, or is it at best a “come the apocalypse” deal? I’m just starting a Nids army and while I do not want to try and start up yet another one I’d love to ally them.

    • Commissar Molotov

      They’re not Battle Brothers – what’s the next one down? They’re that one.

      • euansmith

        “Food”? Is it “Food”?

        • orionburn

          You get the choice of being an appetizer, the main course, or dessert. Or all of the above.

      • orionburn

        Allies of convenience? I’m good with that 🙂

  • Started reading Peter Fehervari’s Legends of the Dark Millennium: Genestealer Cults last night. The prologue has some spot-on Genestealer infiltration and evolution going on. Poor Sororitas, though.

  • Doug

    I wish there was actual expansion material for warhammer quest. New floor tiles and a new scenario book with new room cards. I’m guessing that minis are the expensive part so just reuse minis from the AOS or whfb ranges. All these heros really don’t help with replayability. You can proxy the minis easily so there’s no reason to buy these hero boxes

    • luke snell

      yeah, I am hoping they will do likewise with a big expansion release within the next year. Would be cool is=f they did a new Silvertower specific release for new enemies with new minis.

  • DeadlyYellow

    Hey wait a minute.

    If the mining laser is designed to be held by three hands, how were normal people supposed to use it before they mutated?

    • Shinnentai

      Heheh – good point! Same with that circular saw. I guess the excuse is that normal humans would use the various handles for different stances? Either that or the cult modify them prior to the uprising.

    • MechBattler

      The workers probably had some kind of harness with servo arms for carrying and operating the equipment. A normal human being wouldn’t have the strength to even lift a piece of industrial grade equipment that size for more than few minutes, let alone lug it around and use it. That saw has got to weigh 100 pounds or more based on how big it looks and how solidly stuff like that is usually built.

  • Mr.Gold

    notice this rule “– the Cult Ambush rule: dependent on a dice roll, Genestealer Cults units can set up anywhere on the table, deploy and charge in the same turn”… sounds interesting no? (just under the pics of the banners).

  • Damon Sherman

    man, why didn’t these come out when I still played 40k!
