Welcome to Librarium Online!
Does anyone here play kill team with their tyranids? If so, what units do you use? tyranids have no individual personality so it seems almost pointless to play with them. I was even thinking of buying some of the new black templars, they feel more personal and less faceless than tyranids. any comments?
2 lictors I use as a kill-team, they rock on those games.
Ye can't use Lictors on Kill Teams...they have 2 wounds and that breaks an immutable rule.
Best team Ive had so far is 10 genestealers (or 8 with extended carapace, if I'm playing against bolters), no ranged attacks but, could take out any brute squad they could throw at us...and genestealers are better fluff-wise than gaunts.
In UK white Dwarf 309 the chapter aproved stated that 2 lictors are allowed in kill team without breaking and imutable laws
GW feels free to ignore its own rules in games all the time. However, fluffwise Lictors make a lot of sense for Kill Team.
Do you handle their setup the same then?

New 40K missions here.
no you deploy them like regular kill team members
The loose their secret deployment rule both otherwise stay the same, their very good for kill-team games and give it this nasty Alien/Alien3 sphere.
Lictors still get Secret Deployment.
The only thing that changes if they do that is.
They have to Secret Deploy 18" away from the objective.
Brute Squads are allowed to deploy 4" from each other instead of 6".
Im pretty sure those are the only changes.
