Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok, we have seen pictures of it but does anybody have any idea on what it is going to do for the nids. HQ, elite, heavy. Whats the story on it, is it going to be a replacment for the old1eye? so many quseiotns so little time....
The Broodlord will be an alternate HQ. It's supposed to basically be an uber-Genestealer, sorta like the Patriarch from Genestealer Cults. IIRC, rumours say that it has Infiltration and can be accompanied by a retinue of Genestealers, which in turn will get Infiltration. I'm not sure if it has fleet of foot, though. . .Originally Posted by boxman101
I don't think that there will be any replacements for Old One Eye and The Red Terror, which is rather disappointing. Old One Eye's abilities will be available in some similar form to Carnifexes, but it looks like The Red Terror being scrapped entirely.
Could you direct me to a pic of this douvle?
Try checking out the rumors forum for any pics. I know I've seen at least one on this site.
And yeah, it's pretty much a new version of the genestealer patricarch. The only way it will get Fleet is if genestealers in general get it, and I don't think that was guaranteed yet (I know it's been thrown around as a rumor). Think of a mini hive tyrant with higher initiative.
Oh yeah and it's broodlord, btw.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
Genestealers have Fleet of Claw.
The Brood Lord does not. A unit of Genestealers joined by a Brood Lord LOSES Fleet of Claw, but gains Infiltrate as a replacement ability.
