This is the first piece of fluff I have written regarding my new army.
I have tried to keep it in the same style of report used within the Tyranid
or Inquisitor codices, I am happy to answer any questions anyone may have.
I will be posting pictures of these creatures soon (maybe even tomorrow).
Please leave any C & C. And of course enjoy!!

Grand Inquisitor Lord Tackoen,
I have given the order to evacuate Out-post ZX-81.
This is the first and only Tyranid attack of which I have heard in this area of the galaxy. This system has always been so remote that there has always been little interest. This particular swarm seems to be indigenous to this world since long before the colony was founded. They have been awakened and now infest this world like none I have seen before. Their methods of reproduction are totally different compared to other Tyranids, from what I can ascertain, needing human hosts to reproduce by planting a parasite within or on the body. Shortly after impregnation , these parasite violently and quickly grows into whatever it was meant to be, depending of the original design of the parasite, some become weapons others turn their hosts into walking bombs.
At 08:14 hours on 9561909.M41, a surveying and exploration detachment under the command of Colonel Tia reported that they had discovered "an unknown vessel" of conch like design, miles inside grid section X7429-E42. Despite protocols set in place, they chose to investigate before contacting me or any of their superiors.
After interrogation of the survivors, I learned that the exploration team apparently came across "eggs", and when disturbed, these eggs hatched and out sprang forth the embryo-carrier, which clung to the face or other parts of the victims and could not be removed without killing the parasite attached, or the victim. Usually both. After a few minutes, the unknown parasites would being to mutate the victims bodies, but not killing their hosts. Their newly formed symbiotes scurried off into parts unknown, with such speed and ferocity, the sheer shock of what had just transpired and everything happening so fast made it impossible for the technicians or there escorts to react in time or to capture a specimen.
After this, slowly the population in the colony began to dwindle one by one, apparently carried back to the derelict ship in secret.
Within 2 weeks the outpost has been infested, 73% of the populations are missing or dead, presumed mutated or eaten. I have escaped to an orbital platform with a small contingent of Planetary Militia, lead by Lieutenant Hicks, and any civilians that I have been able to save. Most of these civilians have never seen nor heard of Tyranids and they did not seem to understand my explanations. They have dubbed these creatures "Humanids".
When fully mutated, these Humanids resemble zombie like creatures. Their heads possess signs of damage, their rows of teeth are dirty and broken and some even seem to be missing eyes and other body parts yet it seems to have no effect on the damage they can cause or take, many of the larger species possess a second set of arms that they use as a secondary weapon or to simply hold their squirming prey still while they rip them to shreds.
The most shocking sight is the Humanids procession of Tyranid bio weapons, two different types of these weapons have been seen in recent actions, the spinefists and devourers bio weapons. In the case of the Humanids it seems these weapons have
made more effective by the use of some kind of toxin sacs located on the rear of the Humanid head.
Reports of giant Humanids have started to filter though, these giant Humanids have been referred to as a “Manfex”, these massive creatures are believed to carry two sets of Tyranid bio weapons and seem too used as a shock/assault variant of the Humanid. Other types of Humanids reported seem to have the same abilities and effects as the Tyranids known as spore mines. Though these Humanids seem be able to target with more precision than the more beastly Tyranids counter parts.
Parasites lock themselves to victims faces and pump them fully of bio acids and toxins which cause the Humanid to explode and scattering a lethal shower.
Research into the unknown ship has bore many similarities to the Hive Fleet ships last seen in the yeas of the Zorastra-Attila wars
I don’t know what this may mean in regards to this matter but further investigation is surely warranted.
I know now that I and my companions will never leave this orbital platform alive. I have ordered all hangar doors closed and all escape pods jettisoned empty, all ships apart from own small scouting craft have been disabled beyond repair.
Just as on the surface, one by one people are disappearing, there have been signs of the enemy, bio acid scolding to bulkheads and claw like markings near air vents. They hide in the shadows and strike from behind, I have never witnessed such beast acting like this. Chaos mutated beings are stupid and often carry man or alien technology but these creatures can only have come from one source and I truly believe it has nothing to do with Chaos.
But I am at a loss on how or why we have never heard or seen such beings before.
It is my hope that this message reaches you in time to act and destroy this new alien threat before it is allowed to leave the system and spread out into the galaxy as other hive fleets have. I do not expect there to be any way to deal with this threat other than total orbital bombardment. If these Humanids are allowed to gestate further I suspect they will soon become a fully fledged hive fleet and we will have yet another on our hands to deal with.
Thus concludes my report. If anything may be done, I beseech you to make haste and annihilate this threat before it is too late. I am pleased to have been able to serve mankind on this world, there are not many Inquisitors who specialize in Tyranid studies and I wonder if perhaps this may be why I was sent to this world? Though... it is too late for me, I know that now. We have but 17 of us left alive, and now Private Helo is acting strangely. I think that he maybe-----
