Misshapen, lumpen and inhumanly strong, the Aberrants are the repugnant offshoots of the brood cycle. Though dim-witted, their instinctive need to defend their broodkin makes them valuable assets to the cult. With heavy industrial tools raised, they cause impressive carnage with only their brute force and single-minded determination.
Aberrants form terrifying packs of warriors that excel in delivering huge amounts of damage in close combat. Their heavy melee weapons are used to bludgeon their enemies into submission, and if those don't do the job, their rending claws add a lethal coup de grace. Combined with their ability to shrug off much of the damage dealt to them, this unit can dominate their enemies with ease.
This plastic box set contains 41 components, enough to build 5 Aberrants with a choice of power picks or power hammers. Also included are options to build a Hypermorph armed with a power hammer or heavy improvised weapon, and 11 different heads. This set has been designed to offer a high degree of interchangeability between parts. Supplied with 5x 32mm round bases.
A champion amongst the mutant aberrants of the cult, the Abominant is a misshapen wrecking ball of muscle and chitin that wields a heavy bludgeoning instrument as if it weighs no more than a switch of willow. Only when the roaring, demented brute crushes all before it in a spasmodic frenzy, crying out in a mixture of anger, pain and self-loathing, does the true horror of its existence become clear. It is guided by a Mindwyrm Familiar, a diminutive bio-psychic construct that is given life in the decaying slurry found in a Patriarch's lair.
The Abominant is a devastating close combat specialist, able to deliver huge amounts of damage with his power sledgehammer and rending claw. It gives Genestealer Cults players a melee-focussed HQ choice whose Mindwyrm Familiar helps to protect it and other nearby friendly units from psychic attacks.
This pack contains a single multipart plastic miniature featuring an Abominant guided by a Mindwyrm Familiar. It comes as 11 components and is supplied with a 40mm round base.
Achilles Ridgerunners range into deadly frontier environments, their pilots scanning for promising resource deposits and communicating their location back to base. Though well equipped to engage enemy scouts and outriders, the Achilles Ridgerunner's true qualities lie in its ability to rove ahead of the cult's main forces, scouting out potential ambush sites and routes of ingress into the foe's territory.
Achilles Ridgerunners are fast-moving buggies capable of carrying a significant amount of ordnance. They can also operate as a vital support vehicle for units of Atalan Jackals, giving that unit even more manoeuvrability. Equipped with two heavy stubbers, it can also take either a heavy mining laser, a heavy mortar or a missile launcher, providing any Genestealer Cults player with useful toolbox for dealing with any enemy.
This pack contains a single plastic Achilles Ridgerunner armed with two heavy stubbers, and a choice of either a heavy mining laser, a heavy mortar, or a missile launcher. It comes with a host of other options and optional wargear, and a single 120mm oval base.
Acolyte Iconward Genestealer Cult plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble one Acolyte Iconward, armed with an autopistol, blasting charges and rending claws, clutching his cult’s sacred banner. Supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
Atalan Jackals are fourth generation Neophytes who form the outriders of their gene-sect. They roam the corners of the host planet in search of new regions for their cult to infest. Atalan Jackals provide fast-moving firepower and rapid assault support for your Genestealer Cults army. Capable of traversing the battlefield with incredible speed, they're great for exploiting weak points in your opponent's line or snatching key objectives. This set builds one squad of 5 Atalan Jackals – four on dirtcycles, accompanied by an Atalan Wolfquad. You'll be able to customise your squads with a host of melee weapons, blasting charges and ranged weapons, letting you kit the unit out for a range of battlefield roles. Likewise, the Wolfquad features options for a mining laser, Atalan incinerator or heavy stubber, offering you even more flexibility. All arms in the kit are interchangeable with one another, and you'll have a huge choice heads and accessories to individualise your models. This kit is supplied in 89 plastic components and contains 4x 60mm oval bases and 1x 60mm round base.
A master of gene-manipulation and bio-alchemy, the Biophagus is responsible for industrialising the process of indoctrination and infection. They concoct devious new contaminants that infect their victims with xenos genetics, morphing their body and mind, and rendering them susceptible to the sinister influence of the cult. A Patriarch may grant the Biophagus a Familiar, a scuttling assistant that sneaks into safeguarded facilities to disperse chemical agents into watersumps or air filtration bellows.
As well as providing considerable buffs to a nearby Genestealer Cults Aberrant unit, the Biophagus is a formidable melee fighter in its own right, making great use of his lethal injector goad. His Alchemicus Familiar can also assist him as he seeks to improve the fighting prowess of his mutated brethren, helping to make the hulking Aberrants in your army even more dangerous.
The Biophagus is a multipart plastic miniature armed with a holstered autopistol and an injector goad, and is accompanied by an Alchemicus Familiar. The set contains 10 parts and is supplied with two 25mm round bases.
It is common for the Neophyte Hybrids of a gene-sect’s later brood cycles to infiltrate their world’s garrison force, or even those Astra Militarum regiments founded from amongst its populace. There, they work alongside the infected humans who sired the cult’s hybrids – yet appear normal – to ensure the cult spreads ever further.
Brood Brothers are core Troops available to a Genestealer Cults army, letting you bring the might of the Astra Militarum to bear in your battles. Optional heavy and special weapons let you customise them to tackle any foe, while their numbers make them great for holding key objectives.

Inside, you'll find everything you need to build a squad of Astra Militarum infantry, a heavy weapons team, plus a Genestealer Cults upgrade sprue.

This kit can also be assembled as a Goliath Rockgrinder.
The Jackal Alphus is the undisputed leader of their pack. Not only are they the deadliest and fastest of their kin, they possess nerves of steel and a mind so focused that those of the Ordo Xenos who have seen them work have compared them to Imperial Assassins.
The Jackal Alphus is the perfect leader for an armoured Genestealer Cults army, spearheading columns of Atalan Jackals or Goliath Trucks on her dirtcycle. Armed with a jackal sniper rifle, this character is great for chipping away at enemy champions, while her Priority Target Sighted ability allows you to nominate enemy units for destruction, making nearby Genestealer Cults more accurate when firing on them.

To the oppressed masses of a Genestealer Cult, the Kelermorph is a figure of folk legend, a revolutionary hero battling the uncaring cruelty of authoritarian rule. To the enemy he is a figure of dread, a hated anarch who seeks to tear down the foundations of civilisation. In reality the Kelermorph is something else entirely – a bioform created for the specific purpose of exploiting mortal psychology, a cold-blooded killer in the guise of a legendary gunfighter whose actions inspire generations of sedition and revolution.
The Kelermorph is equipped with three liberator autostubs – one for each of its three arms – and a cultist knife.
This kit is supplied in 9 plastic components and contains a Citadel 32mm Round Base.
Stoic and inhumanly patient, the Locus can go from sombre stillness to a blur of motion in an eye-blink. This sudden eruption of violence is as startling as it is deadly. Like a Lictor jumping from the shadows, the Locus makes a lightning-fast decapitating strike, their twin sabres flashing through the fog of battle to take the head of their foe. If you want to keep your Genestealer Cults leaders safe, you want a Locus. This unit is the ultimate bodyguard, capable of intercepting wounds and striking down enemies before they've even had the chance to get at your Patriarch, Magus, Primus, or champion of choice! This kit lets you build a Locus with a choice of four different heads – one with a hood down, one with a hood up, and two unhooded. These are great for personalising your models, while the spares are compatible with a host of other Genestealer Cults models. This kit is supplied in 11 plastic components and contains a 32mm round base.
Maguses are psychically gifted and possessed of a supernatural charisma. Their control of the hybrids around them is total. As a prophet of their Patriarch, the word of a Magus is law, and their telepathic abilities are more than powerful enough to enforce it. A Magus is a vital psychic unit for your Genestealer Cults army. With one on your side, you'll have access to a huge host of powerful abilities, allowing you to seize control of enemy units or drive your own to greater heights of carnage. Defensively, you’ll be able to shut down enemy psykers by providing nearby units with the ability to deny their powers. This set builds one Magus, and features options allowing you to build yours with a knife in one hand, or a skull. If you've already got a Magus and need another, or want to grab one outside of the Broodcoven set, this is the perfect option for you. This kit is supplied in 11 plastic components, and contains a 32mm round base.
Nexoses act as each Genestealer Cult’s central nervous system. They are granted psychometric powers that allow them to absorb the memories and consciousness of indoctrinated organisms, processing that sensory data into a steady stream of strategic instructions and deployment orders. The Nexos is a tactical lynchpin for the Genestealer Cults army – a strategic unit who rewards careful planning. WIth him, you’ll be able to re-deploy your Ambush markers, letting you get the jump on the foe, while there’s a chance he'll grant you additional Command Points, giving you even more tactical options! This kit is supplied 10 plastic components, and contains a 40mm round base.
Sanctuses are the favoured blades of their Patriarch, assassins whose task it is to eliminate any who oppose the cultists’ ascension to glory. Like creeping shadows they slip into the most heavily guarded facilities, seeking out their targets and eliminating them with merciless precision. The Sanctus is a specialist assassin in your Genestealer Cults army, capable of appearing from nowhere and slaying your enemy’s favourite characters. Incredibly difficult to pin down or hit, he’s a fantastic disruption unit. You’ll be able to arm your Sanctus with your choice of silencer sniper rifle or Sanctus bio-dagger – the former is superb for killing psykers, while the latter makes the Sanctus into a brutal close-combat fighter. This kit is supplied in 10 plastic components, and contains a 32mm round base.
It is common for a Genestealer Cult to thrive on industrial worlds. When the cult rises up to overthrow its oppressors, they employ all manner of improvised industrial equipment from their arsenal. Among the largest and most impressive of these is the Tectonic Fragdrill, a huge piece of mining gear often found in a Sector Mechanicus that can cause targeted earthquakes.
The Tectonic Fragdrill is a massive scenery piece particular to the Genestealer Cults. You can use the gigantic drill in a variety of ways in your games. It allows units to be removed from the table and redeployed closer to the enemy, and its immense power can also be harnessed to cause tremors that slow down nearby units, or a mighty quake that can split the earth in a straight line across the battlefield, causing mortal wounds to units in its path.
The Tectonic Fragdrill is designed to fit in with the range of Sector Mechanicus scenery, and boasts many of the same design features and components. The rails included with it are also compatible with the Galvanic Servohauler kit.
This plastic kit consists of 63 components, including walkways, legs, a floor, chimneys and the drill itself.
The datasheet for the Tectonic Fragdrill can be found in Codex: Genestealer Cults, as well as in the included construction guide.
The Genestealer Cults are insidious, secretive organisations that take root in the underground of Imperial worlds. At the culmination of a plan often many generations in the making, the cultists and those under their sway will rise up as one to overthrow the surface dwellers and welcome the coming of their Tyranid 'saviours'.
