Hi everyone.

This weekend I went to Warhammer World in Nottingham and I noticed a posted for a campaign weekend they are running, featuring Genestealer Hybrids. It's on the 22nd-23rd of June if anyone is interested. Sadly I can't make it, but here is the rules pack if anyone is interested: http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_Cus ... ck_V.1.pdf

The cool thing about this is the pack contains rules for a genestealer hybrid unit, consisting of 9 hybrids and a magus. Sadly no points cost as it is a free unit you can take in your force for the campaign. (If you are on the imperial side you can take a free unit of 5 marines with bolters that fire frag rounds instead.)

The rules are faily basic but it is nice to see some Hybrid love!

Good find Centurion. :)
It is also great to see GW running these campaign events again (even though the Tempus Fugatives did a great job filling in for them). I think it is pretty clever to not have a points cost for these bonus units. They are just a freebie if a player goes to the effort of modelling and painting them, and I quite like the idea of getting a one weekend bonus for putting in the extra effort. :wink:

Honestly, I hope they release some rules for a Genestealer Cult. I like my homebrew rules, but point balancing is always a shot in the dark for me.

Thanks a lot for posting this up! Had actually just started on some IG/Rines Cult units.
Im just gonna put in my two cents that I feel like this unit of 10 hybrids should be worth about 125, which is the base cost of a vet squad points which should be close to the alien hunters, who instead of the extra attack have special weapons and rules all around. Also another thing to consider a normal stealer squad with a b-lord is about 180 with an insanely higher WS, I, and Ld.

any thoughts?

I agree with you, somewhere between 100 and 150 looks about right for this unit. They look like they could do a lot of damage in combat but would take a battering from any shooting pointed their way.
