    Chaos Tyranids

    Having a quick look over the tyranid codex I noticed that nearly all the HQ units are psykers. Would it be possible for chaos to corrupt the tyranids or a daemon to come possess one of them?

    Tyranid psykers are simply a conduit of the whole tyranid race as a whole, they act as one sentience, one bieng.
    I highly doubt any demon could posess the whole tyranid race in one go.
    lol but wouldnt that be an awesome army to convert!?
    Siggy.

    It's possible that a Daemon could come bursting out of a zoanthrope or hive tyrant as far as i know, but corruption I'm not so sure about. It seems like that would require active emotions, which tyranids do not have.

    i dont think its possible, thye tap into the hive minds energy, and not the warps, the hive mind is quiote possible the most powerful force in the galaxy (maybe) so i dont think a chaos dude could really use him,
    BTW have chaos and nids ever actually fought, there is no mention in the new nids codex of any such batlle.

    Chaos can affect Tyranids, but it is mostly when a ship is isolated. Chaos needs to get through the Shadow of the Warp to get to the creature. Remember than Tyranid Psychic powers do not come directly from the warp, but from tapping into the hive mind.
    There are tales of Nurgle infested Hive ships, but Chaos generally prefers thinking followers, as their suffering and emotions are what powers their patron gods.

    I personally don't like it for thematic reasons.. It would be like some of a person's brain cells becomming possessed while the rest of the brain remained normal..

    But the spank has never formally gone down as far as I'm aware so yeah, I guess there's room for chaos nids..

    I can't see it happening. The Tyranids had psykers, warp travel and such long before they came to our galaxy. I doubt they've found anything disturbingly new about Chaos in our corner of reality.

    In the book Black Tide, Fabius Bile has a base on a planet that is infested with tyranid and they don't bother him mainly because they are without synapse. But they are like his bodyguards. Sort of.
