Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey there guys, I'm making a nid army for my little brother because he's new to the game but I'm not too familiar with his chosen army Tyranids... Does Extended Carapice stack, or in other words can you take it multiple times? It says in the codex on the other biomorphs "Genestealers may not have more than one of these biomorphs" but the little indicator for that isn't next to Extended Carapace. Does that mean that it does stack? Thanks in advance.
It says under Biomorphs that you can only ever get one of each. Otherwise we'd be seeing S10 2+ save gaunts for 23pts each.

The asterisk is talking about different head choices for the genestealer so you can't take a stealer that would need two heads.
The idea is that a stealer can only have one of four possible mouths (standard, acidic, information gathering, or spikey). When you model them it makes sense, but it is lame that flashhooks are one of the listed head choices as no other nid uses their mouth to get flesh hooks. However if I could get flesh hooks and feeder tendrils I might be satisfied with stealers again...
Only once. When you see that star and a note saying only one, that means you can only chose 1 from all of the starred items.
