It's a nice boardgame. High production values on the tiles. More random than a game of 40k and much more accessible, I'd say somewhere between AoS and SpaceHulk in complexity. If that is interesting to you, I'd reccomend the entire game.

Beautiful! I was hoping to buy a wooden box with padded inside to store my game pieces in (sans miniatures), let's hope Forge World do some etched brass logos for the cult that I could embellish the box with too. Well, that's the dream.

Bye bye Dakkadakka, happy hobbying! I really enjoyed my time on here. Opinions were always my own :-)

For anyone still assembling their gribblies, I've found a mistake in my copy.

The assembly instructions for the Primus and Magus say they should be on 25mm bases. However if you assemble everything else as instructed there won't be enough and you'll have two spare 32mm bases instead.

The images on the GW site have the Primus and Magus on 32mm bases though, so I think the issue is with the assembly guide.


Other than GW's studio Magus and Primus being on 32mm has there been any official answer on this (I wouldn't care but I'm playing the models for the board game)?
In fact, my set's bases come out just right if I follow the assembly guide and put the Magus and Primus on 25mm bases.

Getting my box today (hopefully) - can't wait!

For those looking to expand their Genecult, while I was searching eBay for a Spawn of Cryptus I came across Macrocosm:

Yep, it's basically Squats Vs Genestealer Cult, including such fun things as:

Squat Broodkin! (Just add Zoats for the complete "What the hell are those" experience at your local GW!)

the "He Who Smelt It" Magus

Not-Massively-Expensive Starter Set! not a terrible price considering they're all metal

The models won't be raking in awards any time soon but they add some nice variety to the available ranges (alongside the Cthood heads from Victoria Miniatures et al).

Our store got an email stating that the primus and magus are intended to based with 32mm, not 25. In addition, with their shipment they received 10 boxes of DWOK and 20 loose 32mm bases, to hand out to people who bought the boxes. They just taped them to the outside cellophane.

Been out of the game for awhile, trying to find time to get back into it.

I've got plenty spare 25mm bases, so I just used a couple of those. The other 3rd and 4th generation Hybrids are on 25mm bases too, so it seems appropriate but then, the 3-armed 3rd generation Hybrids with lasers are on 32mm bases, so perhaps the Primus should be too ...

I think I'm gonna stick the biggish-medium minis on dice 30mm bases, depending on what they look best on. That's me main source of slottabases these days, and it'll keep the GSC in line with everything else. So if anyone needs just a couple of 32mms for their magus and primus...

Oh, and my box arrived. Yay!

It'd be nice to get some models that didn't have autoguns/autopistols. I mean the pistol ones are easy enough to convert, but the autogun minis present more of a challenge.

On a quasi-related not to DWOK, did anyone get the fiction book that GW were marketing as part of one of the pkg deals? If so, are the stories (anthology or is it a novel?) any good?

The book is an anthology of the eleven Deathwatch short stories released leading up to the game's release. The stories are about the Kill Team Cassius members. I've read the first couple and they are very very good. Can't comment on the rest though obviously.

They aren't that hard to change to lasguns. It took about 2 minutes to do a test one if you have spare Cadian arms around

So is there any news for 'normal' releases for the GSC? I love the hybrids but am not going to buy the whole box when I have no use for the marines & other figs.

Everyone assumes there are going to be a small release for them including these models, a few more and a codex. No official word yet though.

If you have the time and can bother, you can buy the box and just sell off the marines one by one to get back about 2/3rds of the total cost of the box. That's probably a lot cheaper than any other way to get that many models.

Paid £80 for the box off eBay.
Solid marine half for £50
Rules, tiles, dice etc for £15

So essentially paid £15 for the cult side I wanted.

So whole box then sell off IMO is the best way to go with it.
