Welcome to Librarium Online!
Do they have to block line of sight of is it just attacking the Tyrant and you allocate the wounds to the Tyrant Guard. In other words how do they actually protect the Hive Tyrant. If there is specific written rules where can I find it? So it explains how the Tyrant Guard protect the Hive Tyrant?
Tyrant Guard protect a Tyranid Monstrous Creature in the same way that a normal squad protects a normal independant character.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.
--Duiker, "Deadhouse Gates"
Under the rules for TMCs it states that TMCs can always be picked out as a separate target for enemy shooting unless the unit consists of Guards. This means you can't specificaly target the Tyrant for shooting while it is acompanied by a Guard.
