My 2,000pt Genestealer Cult

Postby Morendie » Fri Apr 07, 2017 9:41 pm

So this is the new army I have been working on, and I personally LOVE there rules and stuff they have. Between poofing off the board and coming back potentially 3" from the enemy (Really I like all of them except 1 and 2 roll. But 6 is ideal for my assaulters) and using Astra militarum stuff. Especially the tank.. :D

SO here is my idea list (not 100% done but it will be pretty soon.)

6 squads of 12 Neophyte Hybrids (Each with a heavy weapons Team, Las Cannons), with 2 Flamers 420pts
2 Armored Sentinals with Auto Cannons and Hunter Killer Missles. - 110pts
3 Lemon Russ Tanks (Squadron of 3) with Battle Cannons - 450pts
2 Chimeras with Heavy Flamers-130pts
2 Squads of 20 Purestrain Gene Stealers with Scything Talons- 620pts
Primus with Swift Dagger of Sacrifice (Instant death Dagger)- 90pts
Magus with Pysker Mastery Level 2 with 1 Familiar- 70pts
Patriach with pysker Mastery level 2 with 1 Familiar-120pts

Total: 2010pts
So my idea on how I would play is to launch my gene stealers, with my Patriach attached to one, hit them as soon as possible, potentially getting 6s and hitting them right off the bat. 2 squads of 20 is mean early game. If I remember right they would have 4 attacks each. Then while I have Neophytes poofing all over the place causing trouble I would have a heavy advancing force of tanks, chimeras with Neophytes in them, and sentinals squeezing in the pain.

Thoughts?

You are the reason I am aiming to stock up on them. xD and the reason I want Dreads in my army. Walkers you would have a hard time dealing with in Close Combat. I just need an effective strategy to wipe out your transports and tank killers. You got serious ridicules rolls last game! you one shotted everything you shot at!
