hehe, what does this have to do with impirial guard??
i'll tell you what the genestealer cult is:
as far as my knowledge goes this is how it works, someone can chime in anywhere that i'm wrong.
so: little troop of genestealers arrive on a passing space hulk and hole up in a cave on the outskirts of town.
strongest one starts the transformation to become a patriarch, others (which are known as purestrain genestealers) go find people. once people are found they are impregnated with a geneseed. these people as the geneseed matures have there minds manipulated psychicly into feeling maternal love (as a mother loves her baby) eventually the baby is ready and is puked up (i think?) they think the baby is theres and they love it. this baby is half genestealer half human and is known as a hybrid. they share similarity's with both races and can have a number of both genestealer and human traits they also mature very quickly. so, the person who had the baby is now fully connected to the genestealer brood mind and is called a "brood brother" these people although unable to impregnate anything can walk out in the open and still seem human. they can also manipulate guns and equipment just like a normal human. they are the human face to the tyranid menace. now. to the hybrid, the hybrid CAN impregnate any human but instead of another hybrid being born from the human a purestrain genestealer is born and the impregnated human just becomes another brood brother. and thus the cycle begins anew.
so, to sum it up a genestealer cult is a tyranid infiltration designed to soften a planet up and make it ripe for the plucking at the most opritune moment. they are the vanguard of the tyranid fleet, and the faster they spread, the bigger of a target the planet is for the tyranids because of the biomass involved.
i am pretty sure this is the gist of it, but people can come in and correct me if i stray.
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
