I just got into Warhammer 40k and started my first army, the Genestealer Cult. With Warhammer 40k being an expensive hobby, I want to minimize my spending on models. So, I went ahead and created a 2,000 point army list with BattleScribe to use as a guideline on which models to buy. I'm looking to get a critique on my list. I'm not looking to create a be-all and end-all list, but a decent one.

The general idea behind my army is to flood the board with my troops and use them to capture objectives. While I have the Abominant, Aberrants and Atalan Jackels ambush the opponent's backline. Then the Leman Russ to combat heavy support units. I took the two Cult Scout Sentinels to really fill out 2,000 points, but also potently do something with their Scout Vehicle ability.
