do tyranid units that are either synapse creatures or inside synapse range need to take a psychic test for warp blast? synapse allows you to automatically pass all leadership based tests, which warp blast is.
question 2, on many of the units the Attacks column have a +1 to represent scything talons, but some of the units that are equipped with talons such as the lictor and raveners dont have that +1 listed on their profile, do i need to add it in for them or is it already figured in?
ravener 1 has A3, and has the option for 2 pairs of talons. would that upgrade take it to A5? or it is assumed that one of the talon options is already figured in?
I've always thought psychic tests were separate from leadership tests.....it just USES your leadership value as a function of the test.
Psychic tests are their own mechanic so no they don't automatically pass...how would one account for the perils of the warp without a roll?
R3con is right that it's only morale tests you don't need to worry about with synapse creatures nearby, but my regular 'nid opponent claims you don't need to roll for some psychic powers anyway.
Thinking about it, next time I'll ask him to show me where it says that...
Yes, tyranids within synapse or are synapse creates still must pass the psychic test inorder to use psychic shooting attacks. (or any other psychic power that require a psychic roll.)
Only those that specifically mention that the attacks are included in the profile, are included. For your ravener example, each pair of scything talons would increase +1A, to the base profile.
Fearless models pass morale and pinning tests (and according to the tyranid FAQ instinctive behaviour as well).
If it isn't one of the above, fearless models still have to test.
A fun fact most people don't realize is that a creature with synapse is a psycher....meaning that things like the psycic-xbow work on them......
It came up a little while back in the witch hunters forum - with synapse creatures having immunity to the 'Hammer of the Witches' power.
