Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Army Listing


I had a great time at AdeptiCon, buying lots of stuff and playing tons of great games. My Friday was spent playing in MiniWargaming's Oscinia narrative campaign day. I brought a 2,000 point Genestealer Cult list and managed to go 1-2, winning one game pretty big, losing one game decisively and losing one game pretty badly.

I think the two losses were bad matchups, however with some better charge rolls I could have done better in the closer loss. Custodes are just impossible because they have tons of re-rolls, armor saves, and high volume shooting attacks. I think perhaps with a new codex if all we get are lowered point values I'll do better, but we'll need better rules as well to win more.

The Road to AdeptiCon 2018 - Light at the End of the Tunnel


It's been a fast few months. The holidays really hammered my hobby progress for AdeptiCon, and I had a major event change in February, so I've really been cramming in a lot the last few weeks. I have had my Shadespire guys finished for a while. I'm also bringing my Skorne for Company of Iron, but those have been finished for years.

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Heavy Support Choices


You can see my first article in this series here. I covered HQ selections, overall traits for the Genestealer Cult, relics, psychic powers, etc. The second in the series is about troops and dedicated transports and can be found here. The third in the series is about elites and can be found here. The fourth article in the series is about heavy support choices and can be found here.

I've added two Forge World Astra Militarum units to this review because I think they're a little less known and they really add to the lists I've been using.

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Fast Attack Choices


You can see my first article in this series here. I covered HQ selections, overall traits for the Genestealer Cult, relics, psychic powers, etc. The second in the series is about troops and dedicated transports and can be found here. The third in the series is about elites and can be found here.

The fast attack slot for Genestealer Cult is pretty thin, so this should be a quick read. It is thin but fierce!

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Elite Choices


You can see my first article in this series here. I covered HQ selections, overall traits for the Genestealer Cult, relics, psychic powers, etc. The second in the series is about troops and dedicated transports and can be found here.

The Elites slot for any army is really where you want some good mobile or heavy infantry that is going to take the fight to the enemy. The GSC elite choices shine in some ways and really fall down in others.

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Troops and Dedicated Transports


You can see my first article in this series here. I covered HQ selections, overall traits for the Genestealer Cult, relics, psychic powers, etc.

In 8th Edition troops have become fairly important not only for holding objectives, but for filling out detachments. The Cult has access to only two troop selections: neophytes and acolytes, and two dedicated transports: the chimera and goliath truck.

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - HQ


I've been playing my Genestealer Cult quite a bit since 8th Edition came around and I feel like I've got a pretty good handle on it now. While I think the list itself is fairly weak, I love the models and I've been trying to make it work. I don't really need to win every game or whatever to have fun - I mostly just want close games, so I don't mind throwing stuff on the board that is less competitive.

I want to review each selection for GSC (not Astra Militarum or Tyranids) not only for you, the dear reader, but also for myself - sort of a self review. I'm also eager to hear thoughts from others and things I might have missed. I am not really up to date on all the competitive stuff for every other list in Warhammer, so I may miss opportunities here or there - let me know what you think!
