The Genestealer Cult is getting rolling with week 2 on the way.  You wallet will be subverted!

gscult-goliath2

Week 1 of the insidious Genestealer Cults is behind us and the purple people eaters are worming thier way into your budget.  Here’s what week 2 has in store:

via industry professionals:

Genestealer Cult Broodcoven $50 (Patriarch, Magus, Primus)

Genestealer Cult Goliath Truck $60 (combo kit)

Genestealer Cult Acolyte Iconward $25

Genestealer Cult Neophyte Hybrid Squad $45 (Cadian shock troopers, Heavy weapon team, with Cult Accessory Sprue)

gscult-icon-crop

Battlemat City Ruins: $85

Ultramarines Strikeforce Ultra: $250

Horus Heresy Corax: $30 (Hardback Black Library)

 

The Broodcoven looks like the unmodified Cult sprue from the Deathwatch Overkill box:

DW-BoLS-SprueBK1

To me the big surprise is the Neophyte Hybrid squad, or Brood Brothers as we liked to call them back in the day. This is a very well priced kit combining the Cadian Shock Trooper kit, with a single AM Heavy Weapon Team and the upcoming Cult accessory sprue.  A very flavorful kit!

There are still units that we have not seen yet like Aberrants, so there is certainly more to come.

~Who has felt the caress of the Genestealer Cult on thier wallet? Will you submit to the Stealer’s Kiss?

 

  • Crevab

    60? aw

    • NNextremNN

      Just another case of buy the boxed game and sell the units you don’t want.

      • ZeeLobby

        There’s a boxed game with the Goliath truck in it?

        • Hawt Dawg

          Yes! It is called Hawt Dawg’s Underwear.

        • NNextremNN

          Oh sry thought you were referring to the broodcoven.

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      how much in £s are $60 units normally?

      • Ben_S

        I believe a Codex is $50/£30, so I’d guess we’re looking at about £36, maybe £35.

        • Ross Allan

          Goliath Truck is indeed £35, as confirmed in this month’s WD, which subscribers already have 🙂

      • Shawn

        The exchange rate is currently $1.30 = 1 pound. So $60 = 46 pounds. I’d use the pound symbol, but my computer isn’t designed for such things, at least as far as I can tell. I hope that helps.

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah. I’m not sure if they do this to offset the deals obtained by buying their boxed games or what, but it’s definitely a bit expensive. I wonder if they justify higher prices because it’s a “combo” kit as well.

  • Cultist4341

    I don’t think Aberrants are getting a release, at least not in the current batch.

    They weren’t in the White Dwarf list of upcoming releases.

    • Ross Allan

      Ah, but WD offers ‘retrospective’ articles, covering released up to it’s own release day. Therefore, a 3rd release week wouldn’t be included. Expect missing stuff then, I’d wager.

      • Cultist4341

        That might just be it. Here’s hoping anyway. I like those models, but not enough to buy the Overkill box for them.

    • BaronSnakPak

      They’re in the codex, it wouldn’t make sense to keep them exclusive to the board game.

    • Davor Mackovic

      Just like how the White Dwarf says that there is two icons on the dice and the symbol that you even use is on the 6 with a skull on the one?
      Yeah White Dwarf can’t be trusted.

  • Bran D

    Battlemat City Runes?

    • Dumbcow1

      That was the thing on here I was most curious about..

    • Cultist4341

      Apparently a 4×4 Kill Team mat with ruins on it.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        will we be seeing a 6×4 I wonder? GW must be seeing all that money we are spending on mats and finally waking up…

        • Aezeal

          If GW made some affordable forest mat and some AFFORDABLE sylvaneth terrain I’d be buying.
          A slightly simpler forest for 15E and some outdoorsy terrain (tree with platforms in it, rock with large tree on it) would be very nice for AoS in general and Sylvaneth in particular

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            me too, I’d be up for a mat if it had cool imperial symbols etc on it.

        • ZeeLobby

          Yeah. It’s just a super better idea then realm of battle tiles that cost hundreds of dollars.

          • euansmith

            Indeed, if they sold a mat for each Realm, that could be super cool.

          • bobrunnicles

            Oh jeez – give me a lava mat for the Fyreslayers and I would start an army tomorrow.

        • Davor Mackovic

          How about GW waking up and making clear consice well written rules instead of more random tables, and needless dice rolling?

          Funny other games do that.

          • Walter Vining

            Levar Burton made a show for you that might help you understand the rules better

  • Ross Allan

    I can see the Neophyte squad easily outselling the Cadian. £18 for 10, then buy your Heavy Weapon, or £25 for a Heavy Weapon equipped squad? I know which I’d go for.

    • Austin Becht

      Well if we are talking price, it’s cheaper to get 3 Cadians Squads and a Heavy Weapons Team. Bit then yu won’t have those neat upgrade sprues.

      What’s most interesting is the Armoured Claw coming in the 3rd week. $60 for a Chimera and a Cadian Squad, with the upgrade sprue. The cost of just the Cadians and the Chimera are over $60. Add in the upgrade sprue, and you have an amazing deal.

  • orionburn

    Would love to see a cult “upgrade” sprue sold separately to mix and match with whatever you please.

    A bit bummed on the price of the Goliath. Was hoping it would be at most $50.

    • MightyOrang

      I wonder how far one box of them will go in terms of kit bashing IG.

    • Austin Becht

      I’m hoping we see that upgrade sprue sold separately too. I have some existing IG tanks I could never sell, and now want to strip and repaint for the Cult. Plus I really want to add some Sentinels to my army. Getting some icons separately without having to buy the Neophyte Hybrid Squad (or that other one that is coming out), would be great, even though I might end up buying those kits anyways.

      As for the Goliath, I’m a bummed too, but I can’t see myself running a lot of them.

      • orionburn

        I’m sure bits will be easy to come by on Ebay, but still would be nice to have a sprue with everything you need right there.

        I would probably get one or two for fun, but wouldn’t run more than that. I’ve been working on Nids as a second army, so adding these guys as ally has me hyped. Loving the idea of a couple of Carnifexs rampaging along with suppressing fire from Sentinels and a Leman Russ.

        • Austin Becht

          I’m not a fan of eBay. Me, friends, and family have been tricked too many times. Good place to sell, terrible place to buy.

          • orionburn

            I understand. Been disappointed a few times myself, but there are some really solid sellers. Especially for bits. There’s 2 mainstay sellers on Ebay that I’ve always had good luck with.

        • Vorropohaiah

          how about tyrant guard converted to look like zoats?

  • MightyOrang

    Chimera is $37.50. The CultMobile is $60?!? The Four Armed Emperor has many hands reaching for your dollars.

    • Ross Allan

      Does seem to come with pooloads of options though. The more sprues, the higher the price.

      Though having said that, value is always subjective – I just hope we won’t find ourselves reliant on them.

      • Austin Becht

        A lot of the formations have things that don’t benefit vehicles. You won’t be needing too many. Likely more Rockgrinders than Trucks.

        • orionburn

          Have the rules been leaked for that yet? I haven’t seen anything thus far and am curious as to what the rules are for it.

    • Aezeal

      New GW stuff has lots of stuff you will not use. My Kurnoth Hunters have nearly 33% of the stuff on the sprues still on it after assembly.. but you pay for it all.. I’ll be looking at ways to use this.
      Same for my new tree revenants.

      • MightyOrang

        No arguments that they’re good about extra bits…

  • Talos2

    Battlemat?

    • euansmith

      It is nice to see I’m not the only one who looked at all the plastic loveliness and thought, “Battlemat?”

      • Talos2

        It’s definitely the biggest news if it’s what it seems. Total change of gw scenery strategy

        • orionburn

          What I’ve been wanting for ages is a mat that matches up with their line of fortifications. A cityscape with roads that has the proper footprint for buildings would be sweet. Lots of possibilities there.

    • Walter Vining

      its a 4v4 kill teams mat

  • Balazra

    Well I’ll be doing formations in different styles,
    Miners, (the normal kits)
    Gangsters in trench coats, (Maxmini.eu and kromlech)
    Planet defence force, (Cadians and the new kits)
    Should give the entire army some different styles and broad range infestation.

  • Curious about the battle mat myself

    • Walter Vining

      4×4 kill teams mat

      • Hawt Dawg

        You sure? If so YEEEEEEES PLUUUUUUUEAZE!

        • Walter Vining

          yeah confirmed from a local retailer that was putting in a pre order.

  • BartTP

    They are NOT brood brothers. Brood brothers are ordinary people infected with genestealer DNA. Those are simply neophyte hybrids inflrating IG. Shame. I was counting on cultists SO BAD! …so bad… ;_;

  • Hawt Dawg

    Way too expensive!

    I rather pay more for my PP Minions per model because I get full value when preparing those. Clean with soap, boil and bend to supposed shape in ice water, use half a roll of green stuff to fill out the gaps, and cut myself for all the trimming I need to do.

    You GW fans do not know the power of true hobbying with your snap and fit models with hardly any preparing.

    I laugh at you!

    • Aezeal

      I see what your do there..
      /me approves

  • BloodAngel

    I am extremely interested in the Battlemat. Are there any pictures out there for it? I tried GW’s website and it didn’t appear that it’s listed anywhere.
