Keeping GSC Competitive

When perusing the internet for Genestealer Cult faction rankings a Cult player is going to come across some demoralizing results. In the majority of faction rankings, win percentages, or any other stat that measures how successful a faction is in Warhammer 40k the Cult are usually ranked dead last. There are a variety of reasons […]

Do the Biker Gangs of the GSC Have a Place in the 41st Millennium?

As a (self proclaimed) competitive 40k player one skill that I always need to keep fresh is the ability to open a codex and find the data sheets inside that provide instant value when added to an army list. This can be in the form of an aggressively pointed unit, a unit in the codex […]

The Best of the Worst GSC

GSC is in a tough spot right now. While over the last few weeks I’ve written articles talking up some of the pros to playing GSC in 9th Edition the fact is that our poor faction is (statistically) one of the worst in the game right now. I do not say this to discourage anyone […]

Playing with your Patriarch

In last week’s article about picking secondaries while playing Genestealer Cults I mentioned all GSC lists are going to include a certain model. The Patriarch is the leader of the Cults both in the lore and, since they are required to be your Warlord, on the tabletop. Taking a quick glance over the datasheet for […]
