Warhammer 40000 : Hive Fleet Adaptations from Blood of Baal !
Hello everyone !!!
Blood of Baal is coming (review this week end) and as usual GW is teasing us with some rules from the new book. Tbh the PA series has not been the great fluff revelation i hoped for. Let's stay optimist for the future and check for new Nids rules (and they really need them right now)
Blood of Baal lets you create your own Hive Fleet and you get to choose its Hive Fleet Adaptations!
The new book includes a list of cool rules and you get to select two of these abilities – if you’ve ever dreamed of being a Norn-Queen, your day has come. Try Hypermetabolic Acceleration and Senses of the Outer Dark for a Hive Fleet that’s all about munching in melee – they’ll help you get where you’re going faster and potentially mitigate the effects of Overwatch when you get there.
For example you could make :
Each fleet from the codex tyranids get one extra Psychic power to choose from.
Off course new Stratagems are added.
new Bio-artefacts that can be taken by your Characters instead of those in Codex: Tyranids
A Tyranid Warlord can usually select a Warlord Trait, but with Blood of Baal, your leader-beasts will have another option. Rather than determining a Trait, you can select an Infantry unit or a Monster in your army and give it an Adaptive Physiology instead. These represent a range of gene-spliced abilities that the Tyranids use in order to secure victory.
The Idea is quite cool
