5 Acolyte Hybrids, der alternativt kan samles som Hybrid Metamorphs
Basking in the sheer alien glory of the patron that contaminated them, Acolyte Hybrids croon and hiss in the gloom. When the time comes to throw off the torn robes they use to conceal their foulness, the Acolyte Hybrids crawl up to the surface and into the sunlight, their grotesque faces twisted in subhuman glee. They show a weird mixture of the species from which they hail – the velocity of a Purestrain Genestealer twinned with human cunning is a powerful combination. These hybrids fire off volleys of pistol fire, before descending on the enemy in a flurry of claws, close combat weapons and screamed praise to their masters.
Hybrid Metamorphs scuttle ahead with preternatural speed, weapon limbs thrashing and biomorphs pulsing with toxins. Spontaneously spawned in a cult’s latter cycles, they are thought to be created when a Tyranid hive fleet nears a prey planet that is host to a Genestealer Cult. When the day of the rebellion arrives, it is the Hybrid Metamorphs that take satisfaction of place upon the front line. In a storm of iron-hard claws, sinewy tentacles and slashing talons they crush and hack their way through everything in their path, an inspiration to the broodkin that worship them as sainted heroes of the cult.
