Hello all!

I'm one of those most wretched of 40K players, a Genestealer Cultist. For years my Genies tore through the ranks of the enemy, but then came 3rd Edition, and university, and a wife, and I drifted away.

But I've been given a vaguely-modern-rules-legal Cult list (from Citadel Journal) and I'm thinking of dusting off the old Cult, so I'm easing myself in by joining some online communities, none of which were around when I was playing. :wink:

So hello to you all, and please be gentle; the Patriarch's getting on a bit.

My main tactic, I think, is to exploit the fact that hardly anyone's played against them, and play on the unexpected!

Cults were deadly in RT and 2nd Ed (Rhino Rush with Genestealers anyone?), but I haven't used the army since then, so I don't know how well they work nowadays. The 3rd/4th Ed statline for a Genie looks a bit anaemic in comparison to the days of yore... :wink:

Thanks for the welcome!

Hiya kelvingreen! I used to play the Cult pretty frequently in smaller 2nd Edition games. They were actually pretty good...sort of like Imperial Guard with some especially nasty melee options. Anyway, I hope to hear more about your 'Stealer experiences. May the heads of your Magusi grow round with wisdom! 8)

Thanks one, thanks all!

I hope to keep the forums posted on my progress as I revamp my Cult, if such a thing will prove of interest. There don't seem to be many Cultists around though!

Thanks!

Falkland Islands? Really? What kind of gaming scene is there down there?
Well believe it or not there is a gaming scene down here(I have yet to get my troops on a board though) and theres even a GW shop here, I do understand its the most southernly in the world!But he only gets a delivery in every six months and he cant get hold of spraypaint at the mo so it dose have a few draw backs being down here!

I've heard that the sprays, particularly the black primer, are rare everywhere, not just at the edge of the world! :wink:

lol, i forget, but isnt NEW ZEALAND lower than Falkland Islands becuase we sure have a GW here, so we can claim we have the most southern, i hope.

Anyway welcome to HO, hope you enjoy it here, id say the most friendly and helpful forum for 40k around.

Alas, a quick glance at my map suggests that the Falklands are more southern than New Zealand. The Falklands are about level with with the Auckland and Campbell Islands at your end of the world, so unless there's a GW shop down there...

The other question is if the Falklands shop is an official GW... :wink:

And thanks for the welcome! I've only been here a few days, and I've already asked a bunch of stupid questions, but everyone's been very helpful and friendly. Plus, I like the colour scheme a lot!

Hey hey man welcome, there is actually a GW shop in Wellington - just thought I'd through that into the debate.

Cultist armies have always intrigued me, when you manage to dig them up would you mind taking some pics of the old relics would love to see them

Yes, I think I'll get some pics of my old 1st/2nd Ed army before I start converting and repainting them for my new force.

I suspect there's going to be a lot of converting and scratch-building going on, so assuming I don't make a pig's ear of it, I'll post WIPs now and then.

And thanks for the welcome!

Thats a good point Im not sure if the shop is an official GW one?Viscount Vash keep nagging me to do and interview with the shop owner(Which i plan on doing when I can get in to Stanley)and I will find out then,But I might have to change my statement to the most southernly suppler of GW :!:
