JStove is back with another Necromunda breakdown. This time he’s going over the pros and cons of the recently revealed Genestealer Cults to. Now that the rules for GSC have leaked, let’s share ideas and opinions on what stands out. All in all, I think they are a strong gang and have. So forge world just put up a list to use Gene stealer cults in Necromunda. So just wondering what are peoples thoughts? Are they a good group.

So forge world just put up a list to use Gene stealer cults in Necromunda. So just wondering what are peoples thoughts? Benestealer they a good group to take? I kind of like the idea of having one “unit” i can use in both kill team and in Necromunda. But are the genestealed for them going to be able to match up?

Only the Insane have strength enough to prosper, Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane. Avatars in a room: I am the angry Dwarf Thane!

GSC in Necromunda is not a new thing. The list was already cuult in WD along with geestealer lot of errors.

I would advise you to go to yaktribe and take a look at their errata or look for an official FAQ from GW. Just read the new list. They have included a new leader alongside the Adept. Aberrants can now earn XP. New psychic powers and models can now actually be equipped with a third arm. One thing they did not correct is the movement stat of 4 of some models.

They also did not alter the wound stat of the Acolyte which is 1. The Acolyte is a Champion equivalent and every Champion in N17 has 2 wounds.

So another error imo. Also, this new version of the cult is written with the Dominion campaign system from Gang War 4 in mind.

Bear that in mind when looking at the new list. What’s special about the Dominion campaign? The Hangers-on table is different in a Dominion campaign to that in a Turf Genetsealer campaign, and the Genestealer Cult Hangers On table is deliberately different to that. Another big difference to keep in mind between Kill Team and Necromunda, which i’m surprised nobody mentioned, is available units – Metamorphs and Purestrain Necromunva don’t exist in Necromunda gangs, while they are both available and i’d imagine pretty significant in Kill Team.

The Genestealer Cult as depicted in this list is a small offshoot group setting up in Hiver Primus. I expect if we see a supplement covering the situation in Hive Secundus that the more But that campaign style will, again, be very different I expect essentially your culg would be away from the levels of official support you get in the Turf War and Dominion campaigns, so you might see no Trading Post, and the whole thing could be a more difficult last man standing type of affair, or time-limited where each gang has a specific objective to complete.


Your acolytes and adept can all have multi-melta and thunder hammer if you wish Take a look over at yaktribe.

There are also a lot of people who felt that the move stat was an error. Besides that, you can change any rules with good reason in your group. Try it out, it will surely improve your hobby time instead of slavishly follow ill-written stuff. Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire. It doesn’t seem right that all have M4″ but Alpha and Aberrant have M5″.

It makes more sense for all to have M5″ standard human movement and the Aberrant to have big hulking slow M4″ like Goliath or the Ambot.

However, Van Saar have M4″ so it’s not the first time human-like models have M4″. The developers have “confirmed” a lot of things, that doesn’t make much sense always. Like when they “confirmed” that bionics would be cheaper than repairing the damage with advancements pre-bionics.

It is a very simple calculation to see that is simply not true. There was also a question about what happened to Neophytes can take heavy weapons. The devs answered “Nope. Only acolytes can take heavy weapons”. That is also simply not true, both the adept and alpha can have heavy weapons.

Necromunda: Genestealer Cults RULE – Bell of Lost Souls

Automatically Appended Next Post: As someone who has been playing wargames for more than thirty years like me, you’ll be aware that unless your group is tiny, the best way to maintain a consensus on rules is to have as few houserules as possible, and try to limit them to obvious errors to avoid dispute. Even the toxin issue divided members of my campaign. Try sticking to the rules as much as possible, it will surely make it easier to avoid disagreement unless your group is tiny.

That is also simply not true, both the adept and alpha can have heavy weapons. N17 as a whole is however full of obvious errors that require house rulings.


Like the large amount of inconsistent weapon profiles you could find, even nscromunda the same book! And other basic things like scenarios that just didn’t make sense at all winning condition, rewards etc. Almost fenestealer of the rules are reprinted again and again Gang War books, skills, armoury, trading post, scenarios, house weapon lists or simply left for dead large parts of the core rulebook because of all the errors and changes.

Forum Tools Forum Tools Search. Strg Alt Dakka Veteran. He is referring to the brand new, vastly improved list that just got posted. Also, the Heavy Weapon hybrids from the Neophyte kit are technically counted as “hybrid acolytes” in the necromunda list, because the acolytes and leader necrmounda the only ones who can take the Heavy guns.

Basically if you build a list that’s legal in Kill Team it’ll be legal in Necromunda, but if you build a list that’s legal in Necromunda, it may not be legal in Kill Team. So, in your eyes, any disadvantage is an “error”? Genestealers are known for their lightning speed. Genestealer cultists are known for their infiltration – all the GSC infantry units in normal 40k move no faster than other regular infantry.

I can definitely see the 4″ move on acolytes being intended to offset their access to the Infiltrate skill straight off the bat, if they had 6″ movement, usually what’s given to ‘faster than average’ models in necromunda, they’d be able to basically guarantee theyd be in combat with their first activation.

Low speed and durability is the disadvantage of the acolytes, access to arguably the best skill tree as Primary and the third arm which is basically old busted Bulging Biceps is their biggest advantage. They are real errors which will be houseruled in our group. Take the Aberrant as an example. It is a brute like a Goliath. Goliath have move 4 and an even stronger Aberrant has a move of 5.

I would give all GS cultists a move of 5 and leave the Aberrant with a move of 4 because it makes sense. The wound stat of the Acolyte will also be increased to 2 in our group because every Champion in the game so far even the Chaos Cult has 2 ccult.

You want some disadvantages for the GSC? They have a few. This is a real painful disadvantage. I just spotted another mistake. What exactly is not a mistake? You have to be more specific. Also I am not familiar with the Necromnuda campaign system. We houseruled this immediately when we began our campaign. This makes no sense. It is only necrmunda different than in GW so it is just a typo. And what is not a mistake?

Additionally, eschers are described as a very fast agile gang, but have the same move stats as orlocks, delaques and van saars! An error is something that legitimately does not work in the rules – for example, Third Arm having rules and a points cost but having no way to actually buy them in the old rules, or Toxin making your weapon worse in the original rules of the game.

If something still works, but is just different, how can you differentiate between it just being different, or being an actual error? How do you know that the hangers-on table is not an intended advantage, representing the cult’s high levels of influence over people? How do you know the hostage rule isn’t just an error?

If a game designer says it’s not a mistake then it’s not a mistake. Looking forward to messing around with list ideas. Think I’ll take the advice and work on my Necromunda list first then make it Kill team legal second. Gobbla Flashy Flashgitz Southern California. That’s cute, Charlie Brown.
