When I finish my currently expanding Luna Wolves force I want to do a Genestealer Cult army, and I thought I had a clever idea for it. I spoke to a couple of friends at the weekender and they all thought it was brilliant.
Then this morning it hit me. I was just rehashing a very old friend’s brilliant idea from 3 or 4 years ago. Ah well, never mind it’s still a brilliant idea so I am nicking it.
The main plan is to have the army lead by a Tyranid Prime and have several warrior squads backing him up, but convert the existing models to look more Genestealer like. So more of a stooping pose, smaller less armoured looking heads, and the three clawed arms.
The Prime would represent the original Patriarch, and the Warriors are the Purestrain children of the 4th generation of the Genestealer cult.
Then use Cadian Guardsmen models as Cultists and 3rd and 4th generation Genestealer Hybrids. Rules wise they would count-as Termagants, as if you look at the stat lines they are almost identical, one extra point of initiative (Tyranid genetics have made them quicker and more agile) and have one less point of leadership (utterly dependent on the brood mind for guidance).
For weaponry Devourers would be armed with rotary stubbers looted from the PDF armoury, Fleshborers would be Shotguns and Spike Rifles could be Autoguns.
Homogaunts can be represented on the tabletop by 1st and 2nd generation Genestealer Hybrids converted out of Catachan Guardsmen. Model the legs to be running, add extra arms from Genestealer models and make the human head more alien by filing down the forehead and adding some simple greenstuff ridges on their heads.
This won’t be a fantastically competitive army, but it will be a fun one if I ever get round to them.
