Genestealer Cult - Unit Tactics

Now that I've played a few games, and been to a couple of tournaments with my Cult, I wanted to stop obsessing about lists, and set out a few thoughts on the units I've used, and how I use them.

Bear in mind, I run a pure GSC army, using the Insurrection Detachment with a Brood Cycle and 2 SubTs. So, loads of units and loads of bodies. My thoughts need to be viewed in that context. If you run a different style of GSC army, "your mileage may vary".

Genestealer Cult List Review

So my first list option is to “tweak” the list I took to the LVO, simply to take out the stuff that didn’t work, building on the stuff that did.

That list would look something like this

Genestealer Cult at the LVO

Just back from taking my Cult to the LVO, and I thought I would put my experience  on “paper”, really as a precursor to some thoughts on how I might change my list.

The list I took to the LVO was a Cult Insurrection Detachment, with  Brood Cycle as core and 2 Subterranean Uprisings.

Genestealer Cult List Analysis.

So, after 7 games with the Cult, what are my thoughts?

First, I really enjoy playing the army, it’s dynamic, tactical, and surprising. I’m sure as I play more games I’ll discover quirks and tricks that will just add to the tactical depth of the army. It’s exactly the sort of list I enjoy. However, it has some limitations in match ups, the complexity and high model count make it slow to play and. finally (and most importantly), I’ve not yet nailed the list.

Genestealer Cult's First Tournament

Last weekend was the GSC’s first tournament. I had a blast and went 3-2, which I was pleased with, particularly when you read about how I lost my first game…..!

The list I took was

The Cult's First Battle

So, for the first time in a long time I was at the non-club last night (which now seems to be a proper club with presidents treasurers and everything….none of which I have anything to do with I'm happy to say!), and played my first game with the Cult. A learning experience. But first, hobby update….

I have 20 Neophytes, 5 metamorphs and 5 Genestealers to finish (they are all “base coated and washed”) and then I’m done. God it’s been a slog, but nearly there. But onto my game.
