Details Discovered for the Genecults!
Additional details, Warlord Traits, Broodmind, and more are here. Lots of details. This is looking like a very fun codex so far. Definitely making me consider what it would take to start a new army. After all I have some of the vehicles……..

Patriarch and 20 genestealers
roll on a chart and get
2- harden carapace (4+ save)
3- Toxin Glands
4- Adrenal (they said rage not furious charge)
5- Feeder tendrils (preferred enemy)
6- users choice
2 units of neophytes, leman russ, 1-2 sentiniels
the neophytes need to bring chimera and be enbarked
they gain outflank and the sentinals have the cult ambush rule.
Also Purestrains confirmed for 5+ invuln save. Regular Genestealers +1 attack, with 5++ invulnerable dodge save, for 13ppm. Can take scything talons, not sure about any other options.
Patriarch gives everything within 12″ Fearless, can take Biomancy and Telepathy on top of the new discipline
Iconward gives everything within 12″ Furious Charge and FnP (6+) or ADDS +1 TO FnP IF THEY ALREADY HAVE IT, SEE BIOMANCY ABOVE
The relics aren’t particularly good, there’s one that gives the bearer one extra psychic power at the start of the game which is probably a must take but the rest are just like, kinda decent weapons.
(Lighter Goliath.) It’s open-topped, can carry 10 models but no stealers or patriarch.
Decurion command benefits:
if patriarch is your warlord, reroll warlord traits
all-non vehicle units have infiltrate rule, those who had it have shrouded instead in the first round, add 1 to reserve rolls, your opponent substracts 1.
each time a unit arrives from ongoing reserves, you can return d6 models that were slain.
