Checkout our review of what’s between the covers of the codex, Genestealer Cults. Don’t miss this one folks it’s a good ‘un!
Today we are going to take a look at the newest 40k codex to hit the shelves. The Genestealer Cults Codex is full of goodies!
This eagerly anticipated book is finally here! There were rules for Genestealers back in the 80’s that was in the White Dwarf and there were some rules in the Tyranid Codex from 2nd edition but they now have their own codex!
The artwork on the cover is incredible and the book itself is the high quality publication that we have come to expect from Games Workshop.
There is no scoring unit bonus, but you do get a lot of cool bonuses from the overall army rule, which is the Ambush Rule and the “Fade Into The Shadows” Rule. These allow your models to move around, disappear and reappear, come out of reserves, ect.
A very key rule to pay attention to and something to remember iwhen reading this codex s that you are never allowed to assault from reserve unless an ability says you can.
In the Genestealer Cults Wargear List it states that the vehicles are not allowed to take the demolition charges. It’s only on the Goliath.
And of course a lot of the guard vehicles have been ported over to this book with all the different variants you would expect.
There are eight formations available, some are good, some are bad, and some are just worth taking if you just have points left over.
