The Genestealer Cults Are Back!
It’s been a while but Genestealer Cults are finally back in Warhammer 40K. There are two new infantry kits (one is a dual kit), the Codex and some extras in the first wave of releases. Check them out below:
Codex: Genestealer Cults
The codex is a 104 page, full-colour hardback Codex and contains the following:

- Formations that make use of both the Genestealer Cults and Astra Militarum ranges
- 6 new Tactical Objectives
- New Broodmind Discipline: 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
- Citadel miniatures showcase
