Hi Warpshadowians,
There are some rumours that the next codex chaos marines will include chaos cultists as troops. If so they might make a decent army list for a genestealer cult. What do you guys reckon?

At one point there were rumours that there was going to be a general "Traitors" codex or something and that it may even include Genestealer Cultists. I guess we'll see...

I like the sound of this.

Slaaneshi cultists would probably work out great, with the extra I being a good representation of Genestealer's speed, and Slaaneshi powers being sort of like our own. I hope Chaos does get cultist, but not just for our sake. They deserve them for the tragedy of 3.5's replacement with the stripped down 4th edition codex.

^This^
I collected chaos in that edition and loved it. I'm just glad GW are bringing out another chaos codex.

Sorry about the thread necromancy (although if it is the top topic, does it count?), but I think the Chaos codex will work. Here's what I'm thinking.

Cult Prophet (Dark Apostle)
-Power Weapon -Gift of the Sky Mother (mutation)

Genestealer Magus (Sorcerer)
-2 levels -Terminator armor

10 Purestrain Genestealers
(Possessed with Mark of Slaanesh, Icon of Excess)
-Dedicated Truck (Rhino with Dozer Blade and Dirge Caster)

10 Cult Psychers (Thousand Suns)

10 Hybrids (CSM)
-Plasma gun -Flamer -Power Weapon
-Blessings of the Skymother (Mark of Slaanesh, Icon of Excess)

10 Hybrids (CSM)
-Plasma gun -Flamer -Power Weapon
-Blessings of the Skymother (Mark of Slaanesh, Icon of Excess)

25 Cultists
-Autoguns -3 Heavy Stubbers

25 Cultists
-3 Heavy Flamers

Heavy Weapon Team
(5 Havocs with 4 ML and Flakk Missles)

Weapon Beast
(Forge Fiend with 3 Ectoplasma Cannons)

Circa 2000 pts
Thoughts, Opinions?

It depends - how do you plan to model these things?

Post subject:  Re: Upcoming Chaos codex for cult?

The modeling is based on what I've already converted. I started an IG-based Cult about eight or nine years ago, so I've already converted and painted a bunch of the models.

Cult Prophet (Dark Apostle)
-Genestealer with a pistol.

Genestealer Magus (Sorcerer)
-I converted this model from the named Ethereal on the floating chair.

Purestrain Genestealers
-Regular genestealers

Cult Psychers (Thousand Suns)
-Converted from old sanctioned psycher models, a few converted old night goblins, and a couple other things I have lying around. I think the body guards for the Ethereal fit in here as well.

Hybrids (CSM)
-Some Cadians I converted over.

Cultists
-Converted Catachans

Heavy Weapon Team
-Catachans with MLs on regular bases.

Weapon Beast
-Either my converted Tyrannofex from before they released the model or I can use an actual T-Fex.

Personally I don't think the chaos dex on it's own makes for an appropriate hybrid list. There is too much power armour, and I think some of the counts-as are stretching it a bit. Cultists are a good base obviously, and you can probably get away with a power armour HQ (carapace armour on top of genestealer carapace), but I think the rest is stretching it a little.

Maybe Chaos as allies for your imperial guard? Although it seems to me that cultists are probably not so dissimilar to conscripts.

Nice. When you're ready to show them I'd (and I'm sure most of us) will love to see them. :)

Yeah, now that I've seen the chaos codex it doesn't really suit what I want in the genestealer cult either. That said there is no wrong way to do the cult as there are so many cultures and places it can take root. And the galaxy is a big place. :wink:

I'll have to take and post some pictures.
