Special Abilities

Instinctive Behaviour (Lurk): At the start of the creature’s turn, it must pass a Resolve test (DN 3) or act according to that instinct; if the Resolve test is passed, the creature may act freely. If the creature is part of a mob, then the whole mob makes a single Resolve test. Tyranids with the Lurk instinct are driven by their survival instincts to seek out cover, hiding themselves away and attacking only when threatened. A Tyranid with the Lurk instinct becomes pinned.

Blinding Venom: A creature which becomes Poisoned from a Gargoyle’s Blinding Venom is also blinded.

(Mob) Hail of Living Ammunition: Add +1d to ranged attacks.
