As above. I’ve just picked up a Palanite enforcers box and got some GSC upgrade sprue and just wondering if a cult infested enforcers would be viable in necromunda?

I'm imagining the narrative behind that... Good stuff!

Cheers guys. Regarding rules how would I go about using them in game?

Don't the rules for Palanite Enforcers state they MUST be Law-aligned, and Genestealer Cult gangs are automatically not-Lawful?

 

It seems like there's an oxymoron here with a Genestealer Cult Enforcers gang :lol:

 

But, it's Your Dudes, so do whatever floats yer boat! :tu:

I’ll have a look in the books and see what’s what. Cheers guys for your input.

Rules as written, you can't have a Genestealer infected Enforger gang (as Gederas mentioned Enforcers must be Lawful-aligned whereas Genestealer-infected gangs must be Outcast-aligned), but the great thing with Necromunda is that if you talk it through with your gaming group and they're fine with it then crack on! Come up with a good narrative for your gang or even work it into the overall campaign.

 

Alternatively, you coult run them as a "counts-as" gang: both Orlock and Goliath have similar access to bolters and combat shotguns as well as decent armour. It's not quite the same, but it will let you get models on the table more easily. 

 

Don't forget to share the conversions when you start!

I suppose the other option is to just run them using the standard Enforcers rules. They’re an infiltration cult.

If you're just going for some cool kitbashing but otherwise plan on using the standard rules, you should be fine especially if your minis are wysiwyg for the enforcers.

Hope is the first step to despair.
