Righty then, this question is a discussion at my first game with the new codex.
Could a Tervigon spawned unit assault 30"?
Runs like this,
1. Tervigon moves forward 6", Spawns 6" forward.
2. Spawned Gaunts move 6" forward, Fleet/run 6" (avg 3.5" I know, but just for hypothesis say it was 6").
3. Gaunts then Assault 6"
So..... 6" + 6" + 6" + 6" + 6" = 30" or for the sake of the fleet roll, 6" + 6" + 6" + 3.5" + 6" = 27.5"
Thats an average of 10 gaunts with a first turn charge, not devastating but will stuff up a lot of fire corridors darn quick!
"A tervigon can spawn termagants in the tyranid movement phase before it has moved."
Also note that termagants don't have fleet.
Sorry dude, but i think GW saw that one coming.
As allready set
The Tervigon Spawns before movement and no fleet.
So it's about 18 inch max.
Right you all are then.
Sometimes I hate playing since Rouge Trader.. I get mixed up with the rules for previous editions...
Sigh... Genestealers with 2 wounds...... Those were the days.....
For 14 points that'd be pretty damn powerful...

'Thou shalt not refer to the Adeptus Soritas as "Bolter Bitches" nor shalt thou go anywhere near our sisters during the time of the "Red Rage," lest thou wishes to be the first human to enter orbit without the aid of a shuttle.'
The 18" move is still pretty effectve in terms of assault range. More importantly, the capacity to do it while stuck in combat, and the capacity to do it OVER intervening enemy units can be a real boon in a lot of situations.
But yeah, the 24"'er was over the top. Before the dex came out and the little details were there, we did a lot of playtesting with various builds, and found that one crazy over the top. The limitation was an important one.
