The latest offering in the Warhammer 40,000 universe is the impressive Leviathan boxed set. Inside the set, players will find a veritable army of Tyranids, ranging from towering beasts to swarming minions. Among the new additions to this formidable force is the deadly Von Ryan’s Leaper.
Named after an unfortunate individual, this latest creation from the Tyranids is a masterful hunter and one of the deadliest in the galaxy.
Von Ryan’s Leapers combine genetic traits from Hormagaunts and Lictors to create a fearsome melee fighter. With their balancing tails and small size, they are incredibly fast and efficient ambush predators.
As vanguard organisms, Von Ryan’s Leapers are often deployed on the target planet before the main hive fleet force arrives. These stealthy creatures lie in wait, avoiding detection until they can strike with devastating effect.
Whether jumping out from behind cover or stalking their prey through the shadows, these ambush-hunters are a formidable addition to any Tyranid force.
