Introducing the awe-inspiring Deathleaper, a creature of unparalleled poise, elegance, and tentacled appendages. This magnificent specimen represents an enhanced version of the beloved Lictor bioform, tailor-made for the new edition.
Deathleaper serves as the Hive Fleet’s foremost instrument of terror, striking fear into the hearts of all who dare to traverse the shadows. Its legend of unfathomable dread spans the entire galaxy.
The newly crafted miniature of Deathleaper stands out as the epitome of Tyranid aesthetics, emerging from the spawning pools as an embodiment of style. Its regal biological tailcoat, while prompting curious speculation regarding its purpose, adds an undeniable flair to its formidable presence.
Although any grievances one might have about this unique design choice are best kept to oneself, given the potential consequences.
The original incarnation of Deathleaper surfaced during the Fall of Medusa V campaign in 2006, a time of great turmoil. Reports of a malevolent specter terrorizing the planet led to the revelation of this new form of Lictor bioform. Following an assimilation of its genetic material by a tendril of Hive Fleet Leviathan, subsequent Deathleapers began to manifest wherever the Hive Mind sought to sow unadulterated terror.
Enthusiasts of Warhammer 40,000: Leviathan will undoubtedly appreciate the visually striking synergy between Deathleaper and Von Ryan’s Leapers, making them an ideal pairing. However, this is merely the beginning of the influx of vanguard organisms ready to join the formidable ranks of the Hive Mind in the impending Tyrannic War.
