Ciaran is back with his Genestealer Cult to face my Deathwatch in this 2k Matched Play game!
If you're looking for an army that might be difficult to master but can bring entire planets to their knees in hours, this might be the codex for you. [...] The post Codex: Genestealer Cults – A Welcome, Four-Armed Embrace appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
With one gem amongst the other situational and niche Tactics, the Genestealer Cults are going to be more reliant on the general and Specialist tactics. With the School League ruling that only 5 Tactics per force are allowed, I can’t see these seeing much use.With that said, they do provide some interesting reactions to situations, and so have their place in less restrictive Matched, Open and Narrative play.General TacticsTactic: Unnatural SensesUse when a model is declared as the target of a chargeThe model may fire Overwatch even if the model isn’t visible The model counts as obscuredCost: 1CPWe’re not starting off with a great one, being as amazingly niche as it is. The model being obscured only counts in terms of Injury rolls, Overwatch needed natural 6s to Hit in any case. In anything but the school’s league this is a nifty tactic to bring out as a surprise to the enemy. However, if you’re ever limited in the number of tactics you can bring feel free to skip this one.Tactic: Density Analysis LensesUs
