I will be getting it right away, regardless of the cash or the rules because... cults!

Yeah, i think it was only a logical follow up product after death watch.
Am i exicted?
Exited is the wrong term for me. I think its cool to have the cult back. I think i will get the book as well. But atm i won´t start a new army. There is still to much to do on my orks, my actual love.

Gasp! Most foul blasphemy! Orks are nothing but amusing biomass! :wink:

I'm excited to get a look at it, prepared for a bit of a flop, but I think there is enough room for them to do something really cool.

Check these out!

https://www.games-workshop.com/en-CA/Wa ... d=11345811

http://natfka.blogspot.ca/2016/09/genes ... rders.html

This 104-page, full-colour hardback Codex features a wealth of gaming content:

- comprehensive information on the Genestealer Cults, the gruesome and frankly unsettling story of their rise from a single organism to unstoppable, planet-devouring insurrection;
- rules for Genestealer Cults miniatures, the scavenged weapons they use to slaughter their victims, and army-building lists allowing for Hybrid and Brood Brother cultists drawn from the Astra Militarum;
- formations that make use of both the Genestealer Cults and Astra Militarum ranges, with notes on the wargear that Genestealer Cults scavenge and use for their own sinister ends;
- 6 new Tactical Objectives and the complete Broodmind Discipline: new Psychic Powers used by Magi and Patriarchs;
- the Cult Ambush rule: dependent on a dice roll, Genestealer Cults units can set up anywhere on the table, deploy and charge in the same turn, and burst from their hidden lairs to surprise and engulf the enemies of the Cult;
- a showcase of beautifully-painted Citadel miniatures, presenting the colours and icons of the Cults that lurk below.

Phil Kelly and Simon Grant Talk about the Codex, It seem interesting (though I will still with hold judgement).

A bunch of stuff has leaked and if its true, hot damn!

Things like units being able to jump back into reserves, come back with more models and then attack from crazy random places!

It looks like with a little luck we can have units jump out of the shadows and either shoot twice, or charge after being placed anywhere. Oh and don't like your deployment? Welp now your army has sunk back into reserves and could pop up anywhere! The rules will make the cult more mobile then most Eldar armies. Pretty crazy stuff just came out today about the codex.

Picked up the Codex today, it is really interesting and has a lot of nice pics and fluff. They did not add in the overkill data sheets BUT normal Genestealers are being relabelled as Purstrain Genestealers on GW site so I have MANY of that option and I don't have to worry about 25 mm or 32 mm bases.

The new codex brought me back to 40k after a few years away. I bought it Saturday and am perusing it in my non-existant spare time. I'll probably post some thoughts in a few days.

Finished reading the codex last night.

First thought: I feel like a lot of us will be replacing the genestealers and broodlords in our tyranid swarms with Allied Detachments of patriarchs and purestrains, or even First Curse formations... :)

Haha yeah... the purestrain stealers are a thousand times better. Just read the book today.
