Genestealers are just one big, happy family

Genestealers are a specialist breed of Tyranids that act as a vanguard for their invasion. They will frequently hide out in derelict Space Hulks and seek out populated worlds. They are capable of infecting other species and making them into willing accomplices, creating Genestealer hybrids and building cults around a Patriarch genestealer.

A large enough cult will draw the attention of a Tyranid hive fleet; when the invasion is at hand, the cult will emerge out of hiding to sabotage the planet's defenses, and welcome the arrival of the "star gods"; only to be consumed by the encroaching Tyranids menace.
