This is probably a stupid question, I'm probably just not reading something correctly. Do Carnifexes have to test for instinctual behavior if not within synapse range? I was under the impression that since they were fearless, they never had to take tests like this.
Yes they actually still do just like lictors (however strange that is...) but if they do somehow fail the test they don't move at all (via Nid FAQ on GW site). Instead they will just lurk and shoot whatever weapon they do or don't have.
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

Lictor is right here. The GW FAQ, defines this behavior. Also the Frequently Asked Questions thread at the top of the page has a good explaination of why it works this way.

Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
Which is pretty silly if you ask me.
Imagine your lictor. He's been shuffling through the undergrowth of a world, sneaking around to get into position to kill something. The brood is on the move, the hive-mind has decreed that the world will be devoured. the lictor creeps behind a sniper. He jumps out, ready for the kill. Oops, after all that pre-planning he fails his roll and just mills around for awhile. The sniper turns, kills him and continues on his way. 8X
Well, the funny thing is, the Lictor's rule about fearless explains that it is directly driven by the implacable alien will of the hive mind, or something similar, implying that the Hive Mind is in direct contact with the Lictor at all times. I've always thought it should be in synapse wherever it is (not be a synapse creature, mind you, but always count as being within synapse).

Either that or give it brood telapathy like the other main vanguard organism (Genestealers). I know lictors dont come in broods but...

I think lictors needing synpase is something that GW rather overlooked whilst writing the codex. It certainly makes little sense fluff wise or tactically wise for a unit like the lictor which Must appear in deepstriking to need synapse to full function. That said though he does have a decent LD value, so its not too bad - but a turn lurking is not fun!
(note they don't need to have a test on thier first turn in after deepstriking - no movment phase, so no need to test)
Yeah, they had to have missed the boat. The only saving grace is the higher LD. However there's nothing more frusterating than actually finding a viable target for the lictor and then failing your leadership roll the next turn.
