Default Genestealer cults

Does anyone now when genestealer cults first started to appear. More specifically, were they around in M36?

First genestealers came around before the first hive Fleet Behemoth....and that one was around 745.M41

so just before that I guess

Bah.

That's quite annoying, I've got to rethink my fluff then.

When did the catachan devil evolve? If that was there by M36 then 'nids must have been and I don't need to rethink quite as much.

Not necessarily...

Genestealers have been around for a while. Ymargl (sp?) Genestealers where originally just thought to be indigenous moon critters, until Magos Biologos discovered their affiliation with Behemoth (leading to their destruction). Genestealers have been around on moons and Space Hulks since before the Tyranid Hive Fleets entered the galaxy. So it's entirely plausible that genestealer cults existed before Hive Fleet Behemoth.

Same thing with the Catachan Devil, been around for practically ever and it wasn't until the introduction of the Hive Fleets that it's connection with Tyranids have been discovered.

He's right, and if you read the minor hive fleets section in the codex, you'll see that the nids were in the galexy for a long time.

Oh, and I think that it's spelled "Ymgarl".

thanks notanoob, I'd forgotten that section.

That's good, if there were niddy like lifeforms then it makes sense that some had some form of synapse and my fluff does not need rehtinking. Thanks.
