Hi there,

i am sure this was asked before but i can´t find the answer in our big pool of biomass (knowledge in this case).
If there is a topic concerning this, that i didn´t find, please link me there.


In my recent games it happend more often that i lost my synapsecreatures and therefore had to test alot for IB.

The rules for the guys that lurk (eg. the shooty nids) are pretty clear for me.

But for the others who "feed" if thats the right english word i am not so sure.
In actual edition it says that the gain the "berserk rule" again not sure if its correctly named in english.
This rule just says that they get +2 A bouns when they charge (instead of 1),
nothing like have to move or charge closest enemy like in the last edition.

So if i am reading that correctly, it would be a bonus for eg. hormagaunts to not be in synapse reach, because i can move them where ever i want them and get more attacks on a charge.

Am i understanding this correctly??

Thanks for your help

Harald

You are completely correct Harald. :) There is no real downside to creatures with instructive behaviour: feed failing their leadership test for instructive behaviour. So you can charge who you want, or not at all. And move as you like, or not at all.

I wouldn't say there's no real downside to being out of synapse. If the unit loses 25%+ in Shooting it has to make a Morale check at a very poor Ld. If it loses CC it's even worse. But as far as the penalties outside of that, you're correct in saying they're not as steep as they used to be.

Thanks guys!
The morale check thing needs to be concerned of course.
I just wanted do be sure about the other thing.
