Skills Stats

They possess their own unique physiology to adapt to their enemies attacks and evolve with what they eat, they gene-splice and use bioengeneering to build their forces from the bio-matter of planets and other life that they assimilate into their ever expanding organic ecosystem. They operate as a massive singular mind which makes it ease to mobilize one's forces.

Strengths/Pros

They have their own unique combat doctrine which goes as followed; 1. They perform reconnaissance on a planet, looking to see how strong is the planet before the invasion. 2. Infestation, if the planet is ripe for the taking, they start to change the planet's biosphere of life to it's purpose. 3. They then begin their invasion of the planet with their swarm. 4. They begin to subjugate the planet with their bio structures as they finish off any resistance. 5. They then finally start to absorb the planet's biomass.

Weaknesses/Flaws

They lack the basics of armor and advanced technology, this leads to regular tyranids if alone to be easily effected by bullets. Or being killed off if using advanced chemical weapons (Developed by the Deathwatch), that melts targets down with their organic components collapsing. Lesser Tyranid organisms are dependent on the strategic guidance of the Hive Mind and Synapse creatures; without them, their order falls apart and they revert to savage, animalistic behavior, and may even fight amongst themselves.
