Genestealers (Corporaptor hominii in High Gothic) are Tyranid vanguard creatures, lethal melee fighters capable of stealth. They are deployed in preparation of a Tyranid invasion and can function independently, without the Hive Mind. Genestealers reproduce by contaminating host creatures with their genetic code.
The Genestealer Brood is a high-damage melee unit with power melee attacks. It infiltrates after staying still for 4 seconds. The brood can be upgraded with Rending Claws, giving heavy melee damage and making the Genestealers effective against all targets.
