Special Abilities

Chameleonic Skin: The Lictor’s skin grants it a +2d bonus to Stealth tests, and a +2 bonus to Defence when in shadow or cover.

Terror (3): This threat causes terror. Enemies are required to pass a Terror test (DN 3) to act normally.

Flesh Hooks: A Tyranid with Flesh Hooks adds +2d to any Athletics test to climb.

Feeder Tendrils: As an action, a Lictor may drain knowledge and memory from the brain of a creature it has killed. This adds 1 to Ruin.

(Ruin) Champion: This threat may take Ruin Actions.

(Ruin) Invisible Predator: As a Ruin Action when not engaged in melee, the Lictor may move up to its Speed and make a Stealth test to hide (DN is nearest foe’s Passive Awareness).

Pheromone Trail: When a Lictor is slain, the Game Master gains 2 Ruin, as there are sure to be more Tyranids arriving soon.
