Genestealers need to have the Deathtouch special rule from MTG ;p


Back in my day, genestealer rending claws just ignored armour. We also had to fleet 6" in the snow on only four limbs!! =)

I think back in second they were S6 and 2w critters which coupled with the ability to run or charge 12' every turn could really go places.

With the Wulfen/SW rules leaked there are even reasonable wishes to put on the list!!

- Bounding leap (would suit genestealers and might make them more viable again)
- the SW version of Counter attack (would suit hormagaunts)

I'm looking forward to have a proper read through soon because I think there could be great primer material for a new Nid codex.

I'd love to see Bounding leap be a biomorph again. Make it something like, fleet and add +3 inches to a run or assault roll.

Make it base on Hormagaunts, and we could put it on warriors to help keep up.

@DigestedFotoGuy

in the SW rules it's run and assault. Which would be ...welcome.

I've still got 6 warriors converted to the 3rd ed. leaping biomorph :mrgreen:

Nice, I do as well. I still have my huge mutant warrior as well. I crack him out every now and then, and people get confused by the size of all the huge rending claws and scything talons. =)
