Special Rules

  • Biomorphs: At the GM’s discretion, a Purestrain Genstealer may have Adrenal Glands (gaining the Furious Assault Talent) and/or Toxin Sacs (gaining the Toxic [1d10] Trait).
  • Brood Telepathy: Purestrain Genestealers have a constant telepathic link with each other which can function clearly and without restriction (such as from intervening objects or other forms of shielding) up to one kilometre. This allows them to communicate with each other and pass information to nearby Genestealers quickly and quietly.
  • Genestealer’s Kiss: A Genestealer possesses an ovipositor within its maw that implants the alien’s genetic code into its victims. This seeds the host’s body with a parasite that will grow into a monstrous hybrid creature, mixing the genes of the Genestealer and the host. Over a number of generations, these hybrid will give birth to more hybrids until eventually a new Genestealer is born. A host can resist such an implantation, but only if they pass a Challenging (+0) Toughness Test as soon as it occurs. Once infected, the host become beholden to the Genestealer which infected it and loves the hybrid offspring it carries as if it was its own progeny. Special Deathwatch treatments and a Space Marine’s own physiology ensure that Deathwatch Space Marines are immune to this effect.
