Genestealer Cults... Sigh

I totally bought the Genestealer Cults Codex.  I went for the 33 USD iPad/ePub version.  I'm not a huge fan of the interactive versions.  They're neat, but I like the option of being able to print out the pages that I want physical copies of.

I'm seriously considering running Genestealer Cults in a regular Kill Teams group that meets on Fridays at Showcase Comics in Swarthmore, PA.  We're using the Heralds of Ruin rules, so the list options I have are a little different.  The GSC have a special list that can be seen here...

I'm currently thinking about running a full blown Genestealer infestation.  The Brood Prince is 40 points base with probably another 20 points worth of gear.  That leaves ~190 points for dudes.  I'm thinking 5 Purestrain Genestealers, 2x 5-man Neophyte Squads and maybe a Scout Sentinel.  I'd have enough points left over for upgrades.  I'm not entirely sure how I want to kit everything out, but that's the initial thought...  mainly because I already have all those models.  I have the Genestealers from the Space Hulk kit...

I'll have to futz with the bases, but I'm sure I can make this work.  I'll probably put the Broodlord/Brood Prince on a 40mm base and all the others on 32mm bases.  I think that will work.  If nothing else, it'll be nice to have a reason to field these.

I have some boring Imperial Guard dudes, but I'll probably pick up the new Neophytes kit.  It's a very cool looking kit and it'll mean the entire army is around $40 total.
