Default genestealers with feeder tendrils

what's the benefit of giving stealers feeder tendrils. they already have ws 6, meaning they need to be attacking someone else with at least ws 6. not to mention at doesnt work on monstrous creatures or independent characters. so unless you're vs more stealers, whats the point?

In 4th there wasn't much of a point, you were hitting on 3+ pretty much all the time, unless as you said you were up against WS6 or higher.

5th Ed has changed what Preferred Enemy does however, it no longer makes you hit on a 3+, it now grants you a reroll to hit. So now you are hitting most things on a 3+ with a reroll to hit on any you miss, and you also give that ability to reroll to any units with models which are close enough by them.

For the points, it's probably one of the most awesome upgrades you can give your Genestealers now.

Or to your Broodlord for the ridiculously low price of 3 points, as the bonus is applied to all of the Genestealer in his unit or any other unit within 3"/in combat.

Preferred Enemy is a universal rule which is explained in the core rulebook. The core rulebook is currently in the 5th edition.
Link to the rulebook on GW's site
