A/ deathwatch overkill
B/ tooth and claw
I shared the other half with a spacemarine enthoisiast. So that worked out nicely.

Yeah it's not an easy one; GSC have the dubious distinction of being one of the only factions in either major GW system that doesn't have a start collecting box.
If you can track one down, the Genestealer Cults Insurrection Battleforce set has a good spread of units and was decent value ($170 for $245 worth of kits). Sadly it's out of production but a local store may still have one kicking around.
If you don't mind proxying in some of your Guard models as Neophytes, you could always do that and spend your money on the interesting GSC specific stuff like a Broodcoven, some Aberrants, Atalan Jackals etc.

Acolyte Hybrids are pretty obnoxiously priced because you really want them in big blobs, but you only get 5 in a box for the same price as 10 Neophytes

But with both sets you can easily get 15 accolyte so you will save an entire box.
Not sure if I understood this correctly; are you suggesting using a box of Neophytes and a box of Acolytes to kitbash together 15 Acolytes?

You could probably do it, but it'd be a really odd, less than ideal unit; to build 15 complete, legal models you'd need to give the leader the Bonesword/Lash Whip combo, use all 4 special weapons and give the rest a split of Autopistols and Hand Flamers.

And this will save you 50% of money

To answer the original post I was going to say spend it all on acolytes anyway... personally at least im running 70+ at 2k

You can’t get the Deathwatch box GSC sprues on eBay now but I got a few batches of those for like $60 each and now I’ve got a massive cult. They’re easy to convert too.
I'm a full blooded imperium player with a large guard army. I'm looking to slip a little and try GSC. If you had $200 what would you get to start up a GSC army with the idea of going full gsc eventually?
Since you’ve got all the neophytes you need with an IG army and you must have a bunch of armor you really only need some genestealers and acolytes. How about the kill team squad with the gunslinger cultist? Keep looking on eBay for the GSC sprues from the DW game, that’s the cheapest way to bulk out your cult.
You could skip acolytes entirely and just get a patriarch with a big blob of purestrain genestealers...
