It's been a while since I've posted one of these! (October last year to be exact). With the release of the Genestealer Cults codex, I picked up a number of new units to add to my force. These were mostly some of the new buffing characters that are available to the army.
This weekend, I finally got round to assembling the new units, ready for painting. First up, we have two of the new Clamavus models (Clamavuses, Clamavi?!?). These units provide some great buffs for the army, giving you +1 to charge and advance rolls in range, as well as a leadership bonus. Two of these should be a big boost to charging units, especially with the Cult of the Four-Armed Emperor Cult Creed.
Next up, we have a Sanctus. I wasn't aware that the kit came with the sniper rifle variant, as only the knife variant has been pictured so far, so I was happy to have the rifle, as I think this is the better option.
I also got an Abominant to give me another powerful combat character, as well as one that will buff nearby units of Aberrants.
The Nexos is a character that gives you the option of regaining command points when you or your opponent uses stratagems, so is a great boost for the army. I kept him separate from the base for ease of painting.
I also have a Jackal Alphus, who gives me another strong sniper character, as well as providing some other great buffs for the army.
Finally, I have a unit of Jackals, giving me some strong mobility in the army, as well as another source of Demolition charges for taking on heavy armour.
I hope to get these painted up on the next few weeks, as I think my army could really use the boosts that they provide.
