Just got hold of the army box
Must Genestealers in the same brood all have the same biomorph?
I'm guessing the biomorphs "feeder tendrils", "Flesh hooks", "Implant attack" and "Acid Maw" are allways mutually exclusive on any model. Am I Right?
I'll just start with my box of fun :shifty:
i am pretty sure that you must give the whole squad the biomorphs, not just individual models, but I am no pro at interpeting the codex.:hmm:
One Shot, One Kill
The whole brood must have the same weapon.
I don't know what you mean with your second question though, could you rephrase it for me?
Question 1.Originally Posted by Ly`Cron
Yes all models in the same brood must have the same biomorphs. This is not always true of bio-weapons. Tyranid warriors may vary the bioweapons they are given. If you have a brood of three Tyranid warriors you could have one with scything talons and rending claws another with lashwhips and a deathspitter and a third with rending claws and a venom cannon. However if one of them is given toxin sacs and enhanced senses they must all have toxin sacs and enhanced senses because they are biomorphs not bioweapons.
Note that Tyranid warriors are the exception to the rule.
Gaunts for example must all be given the same bio-weapons. So if you have a Gaunt and you give it a devourer and toxin sacs all the other Gaunts in that brood must also be given a devourer and toxin sacs.
Tyrant guard must all have the same weapons and biomorphs however the Hive tyrant that leads them does not have to have the same weapons as them. In addition the Broodlord may have different biomorphs and bio-weapons from his brood but his brood must all have identical biomorphs and bio-weapons to one another.
These biomorphs are usually but not always mutually exclusive on a model. If you look at the Broodlord it can have acid maw or implant attack but not both. On the other hand the Hive tyrant may have both acid maw and an implant attack. The restrictions for taking these biomorphs vary from model to model. If you look in each one's army list entry it will tell you. The only real exception to all of this is the Carnifex which can have as many biomorphs on it's head as it wants. Of course you will have to figure out how to model them. The Carnifex may have restrictions in taking other biomorphs such as the ones on it's carapace.
Well I hope this answers your questions.:yes:
This one has already been answered by others, but furthermore: the answer is always in the wording of the entry. For example, with Warriors is says that the brood may choose biomorphs and that each Warrior may choose weapons. Note the difference: brood and Warrior. In the case of the first it is refering to the entire unit, meaning that all models in the unit must have the same options. In the second case it refers to individual models, meaning that each may be armed uniquely.Originally Posted by Ly`Cron
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.

Thank you all for the great and clear answers.
