Undermine the Imperium and strike from the shadows. Able to ally with the Tyranids, or even include corrupted Astra Militarum Detachments, the Genestealer Cults are a rewarding army.
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.
Hoisting the sacred banner of his cult above the frenzied anarchy of their insurgency, the Acolyte Iconward is a focus both religious and military. Some Iconwards have spent centuries preparing for their incursion, and releasing this anticipation brings an infectious rush that inspires brood brothers to war. The sight of his standard sends the broodkin surging forward in a wave of indiscriminate violence – violence that the Iconward himself can match, his infection near-undiluted. The Acolyte’s icon must not be allowed to fall, as it represents the dawn of a glorious new order.
This multi-part 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.
This kit lets you build one unit of Brood Brothers – Astra Militarum troops who have been infiltrated by the Genestealer Cults. 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. The set includes a host of special and heavy weapons, plus a huge number of heads and accessories for customising your Brood Brothers units.
This kit is supplied in 168 plastic components, and contains 10x 25mm round bases and 1x 60mm round base.
The Patriarch and his Broodcoven dominate the minds and hearts of the cultists in their thrall. Masters of psychic and physical power, they muster and command the actions of the cult’s many generations to ensure their targets are torn down in short order. Every word spoken by the Magus or Primus is obeyed to the letter by their faithful congregation, for they speak on behalf of the Star Saviour himself. This cocktail of psychic power, inspirational presence and dark charisma is a potent stimulant to the cultists around them. Perhaps realising they would soon be doomed should their masters leave them, the lesser warriors of the cult will fight tooth and claw to defend them – and on the day of battle, the best form of defence is attack...
This box contains all the parts necessary to assemble the Broodcoven, a formation found in Codex: Genestealer Cults. You’ll receive a Patriarch, a Primus armed with needle pistol, bonesword and toxin injector, and a Magus, armed with autopistol and force stave and including 2 Genestealer Familiars – a charismatic and deadly combination of Genestealer Cults miniatures.
The Clamavus is an information assassin supreme, seeding audio-viruses into the planetary vox network and dismantling communications. It is their role to create an aura of fear and confusion that their kin can exploit.
The Clamavus is an Elites choice for your Genestealer Cults army. You'll find your nearby troops benefit from better Leadership as well as improved advance and charge rolls, making him great when paired with close-combat units. Meanwhile, you’ll be able to deny your enemy reinforcements and deal mortal wounds with the Clamavus’s scrambler array.
This kit lets you build one Clamavus, and includes a choice of heads – one with goggles, one without. Perfect if you're looking to put your personal stamp on the model, or want to include multiples in your army!
This kit is supplied in 11 plastic components and contains a 32mm round base.
The Genestealer Cults erupt from the shadows in a tide of mutated acolytes, turncoat soldiery and predatory xenos monsters. They employ ambush and subterfuge to outmanoeuvre their enemies, turning industrial mining equipment and repurposed civilian vehicles into potent weapons of rebellion against the hated Imperial oppressors. Propaganda, mind control and assassination are all weapons in their arsenal. Irredeemably corrupted by Tyranid gene-taint, the cults fight with the coordination of swarming insects and the zealotry of true believers, convinced that they are freedom fighters whose heroic efforts will earn them divine rewards. In truth, they are agents of destabilisation and anarchy – living weapons seeded behind enemy lines to spread, multiply and undermine Humanity’s fight against the encroaching Tyranid hive fleets. As the Genestealer Cults raise their wyrm-form icons above the blazing skylines of ever more Imperial planets, it becomes apparent that this ghastly plan is working all too well…
This glorious book contains pages of background and rules for the Genestealer Cults – the insurgent vanguard of the Tyranid Hive fleets. Learn all about the lifecycle of a cult, and how they worm their way into Imperial society, sowing discontent and leading rebelious uprisings in order to soften the planet's defences for the arrival of the Great Devourer.
Inside this 112-page hardback book, you'll find:
- In-depth background and lore on the Genestealer Cults, how they take over planets and prepare them for the Great Devourer, plus their infestation of Chalnath.
- Rousing artwork that will inspire your cults to acts of exemplary sedition
- All the rules you need to play your Genestealer Cults army, including 22 datasheets covering every unit from the Reductus Saboteur to the lowly Acoylte and venerated Patriarch

- An 'Eavy Metal miniatures showcase full of lovingly painted Genestealer Cults miniatures.
Plus, ensure your traps go off without a hitch with a token sheet for use in games of Warhammer 40,000 that comes with 21 ambush tokens and a 9" range ruler
The Genestealer Cults erupt from the shadows in a tide of xenos-worshipping acolytes, employing ambush and subterfuge to outmanoeuvre their enemies. Utterly immersed in Tyranid gene-taint, the cult's Neophyte Hybrids and more mutated Acolyte Hybrids rise up against their oppressors, armed with a variety of repurposed industrial equipment – from powerful mining lasers to heavy machinery like the Goliath Rockgrinder. Guided by the insidious psychic presence of a Magus, the misshapen Aberrants lope from the shadows to reinforce their kin, swinging crushing mauls to deadly effect.

Each six-sided, round-cornered dice is a dark purple colour. The 20 dice in this set each measure 16mm x 16mm and feature the Genestealer Cults icon on the 6 face and traditional pips on the other faces all in a white colour. The dice are supplied in a blister pack with a backing card featuring Genestealer Cults artwork.
Genestealer Cults Upgrade Sprue allows you to turn your huge range of Cadian and other Astra Militarum miniatures and make them part of an insidious Genestealer Cult with this upgrade frame. Build unique squads of sinister models and customise vehicles with the included icons and parts:
There is no engine of the oppressors that a Reductus Saboteur cannot lay low, and there are few materials they cannot fashion into an explosive given a little time to tinker. Flitting through the shadows, they lace the battlefield with booby traps and deploy powerful explosives that make short work of enemy armour.
If you're looking to give your Genestealer Cults an edge against an enemy that’s heavy on tanks, or you just like to blow stuff up, you need a Reductus Saboteur in your army. With a bomb for every occasion, a savvy general will find all sorts of tricks up their too-many sleeves.
This 11-piece plastic kit builds one Reductus Saboteur, who can be assembled with scarred head or one with a pair of goggles, and one separate pile of explosives. It’s supplied with 1x 32mm round base and 1x 25mm round base.
This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
Genestealer Neophyte Hybrids plastic box set contains all the components necessary to assemble 10 models armed with autoguns, autopistols and blasting charges. Any model can replace their autogun with a shotgun – 10 are included – and 2 models can take special weapons chosen from a seismic cannon, heavy stubber or mining laser.
One model can be upgraded to a Neophyte Leader, armed with either a web pistol, autopistol or bolt pistol and a chainsword, power pick or close combat weapon. One model can take a Cult icon.
Supplied with 10 Citadel 25mm Round bases and 2 Citadel 32mm Round bases.
Infinitely adaptable, hard-wearing and rugged, the Goliath Truck is a mainstay of the Genestealer Cults. Fast and manoeuvrable, it bounces around the battlefield laying down walls of gunfire, heavy stubbers and autocannons ablaze. Once dedicated to the shadows, the crew manning the Goliath – proudly emblazoned with insignia of the Cult – now do everything in their power to get as close to the enemy, screaming rapidly across even the most hostile terrain to slam open their cargo compartment and disgorge broods of up to 10 scuttling Hybrids.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Goliath Truck, transport and offensive vehicle of the Genestealer Cults. It comes armed with a heavy stubber and twin-linked autocannon, and features a ton of customisation opportunities – the 4 crewmen have their own options and the wheels can be attached with high ground clearance.
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.
This kit lets you build one Jackal Alphus – a fantastic model that’ll be a rewarding one-off to paint or the perfect accompaniment to the rest of your Genestealer Cults army.
This kit is supplied in 13 components and contains 1x 60mm oval base.
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.
Deep beneath the surface of humanity's Throneworld, the agents of the inquisition have made a horrifying discovery – a Genestealer Cult has taken root amidst the shadows, spreading its malignant tendrils across Holy Terra. Such a threat to the Imperium's heart cannot be permitted, and so Blade Champion Aristothes Carvellan leads an elite force to purge the xenos threat. So begins a nightmare subterranean war against the beast known as the Begetor and its mutated brood.
Whether you're a long term defender of the Imperium, or a fledgling Cult acolyte, this box contains two exclusive miniatures, plus a force for both the Adeptus Custodes and Genestealer Cults, meaning you'll be able to kick off your own recreation of the Unthinkable War on Terra, or fold these reinforcements into an existing army.
Inside, you’ll find 25 plastic Citadel miniatures, including:
- 1x Blade Champion
- 3x Allarus Custodians, with the option to build one miniature as a Shield-Captain, and one as a Vexilus Praetor
- 5x Witchseekers, able to be built as Vigitalors or Prosecutors
- 1x Reductus Saboteur with explosive device
- 1x Genestealer Patriarch
- 1x Magus
- 1x Primus
- 2x Familiars
- 10x Neophyte Hybrids
A 32-page Shadow Throne campaign book covering the narrative of the Unthinkable War, which sees the Adeptus Custodes and Sisters of Silence in conflict with a covert uprising of Genestealer Cults beneath the Imperial Palace itself. This book contains Datasheets for everything in the box, as well as rules for the Deadly Ambush Theatre of War, a two-mission campaign, and Crusade rules giving each faction a Battle Trait table and both an Artificer and Antiquity Relic. All together, this makes Shadow Throne a brilliant choice for new and existing players alike.
The above units are supplied with 1x 50mm Citadel round base, 3x 40mm round bases, 10x 32mm round bases, and 13x 25mm round bases.
These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
