I think cultists should be in Word Bearers because it matches their fluff (Forcing citizens into indoctration (Is that how you speell it ) and it would mean people would be more likely to use the additional troop slots + Alpha legion could just get traiter guard or scouts e.t.c.
thats just my two cents
Fear The Wrath Of The ANZAC Clan!
All Bow For The Anime Clan!
When did I realise I was God?
Well one day I was praying and I realised...
I was talking to myself!
Primarch Of The Iron Clan
It's the Alpha Legion who start and fund cults, whereas the Wordbearers usually subjugate a world, and use the population to build huge dark cathedrals, and to pray constantly to Chaos Undivided. Also, I feel the Wordbearers (possibly) see themselves as the only only ones worthy of spreading the Word, so cultist units don't realy fit.
If you want a mortal army led by word bearers, play lost and the damned.
However, it's the alpha legion who start and sponsor cults within the Imperium itself. That's what their cultist rules are supposed to reflect. If the word bearers have cults, they're probably raised in the eye of terror, on word bearer worlds, and are better represented by the lost and the damned.
I read that Alpha legion cultists and word bearers cultists are constantlley fighting so it gets the sm involved and i think for 40k word bearers should have cultists to.
The difference between Alpha Legions Cultists and Word Bearers is that AL cultist is considering as a fighting force that get involved in the whole doctrine of the entire Alpha Legion, so that way AL players can use them in the table. Word Bearers from the other hand are mindless mutants and fanatics that are used by Word Bearers like workers or expendable war material. Maybe in the Next World when GW make list and rules according to the fluff we will have the option to use then as Kamikaze in the game (Something like Fanatic Goblins from the Fantasy). For the moment Word Bearers cultist exist only in the fluff not in the game boards.
