Working on a PnP of this and suddnely noticed that Commissar Yarrick and the Genestealers (from Chaos Attacks) both have 0 movement. Is that right?

I can understand Yarrick, being an old man at this point, can't really traverse a battlefield that well. Start him in a hive and let him form the backbone of your defense.

But what about the Genestealers? They have a very strong attack (makes sense) but no movement. What's the point?

I couldn't find any mention of the genestealers in the rules, either. Any ideas?

The Genestealers come into play with an extra orc strategy card that comes with the Chaos Attack set. When the card is played, you put one Genestealer counter into any Hive controlled by the Imperium and they attack first... (The Genestealer infestation stays put, so you get the extra counters in case you get to draw and play the card again I assume)

Oh, also, at the risk of vanity, here's my tweaked board that I photoshopped up a bit when I made my copy if it's any use to you (You can see the full size in my gallery)

Ah, I'd missed the card text, that makes sense now!

I'd already snagged a copy of your map, thanks! Looks great!

The 40K background reasons are:

As a Commissar, Yarrick is not a filed commander. He is a responsible for morale and discipline. He was a venerable leader with iron will and charisma. His personality and dedication were instrumental in holding Hades Hive. So, he would not move to other parts of the battle.

Genestealers are and alien species that often infest populated areas (hives) and build a Cult composed of purestrain Genestealers and human/genestealer hybrids (its complicated). The Genestealers have no allegiance to Imperials or Orks, and would be a menace to both. And, in this battle, would not leave the hives they infest.
