This was posted on and contains a helpful roundup of the information we have on the codex. Re-posting here for your convenience.

<Hive Fleet> units automatically pass Morale tests if they are within 12' of any friendly <Hive Fleet> units with this ability.
Shadow in the Warp
Enemy PSYKERS must subtract 1 from any Psychic tests they make if they are within 18' of any units with this ability. TYRANID PSKYERS are not affected.
Instinctive Behaviour
Unless a <Hive Fleet> unit with this ability is within 24' of any friendly <Hive Fleet> Synapse unit, you must subtract 1 from any hit rolls made for it when shooting any target other than the nearest visible enemy unit, and you must subtract 2 its charge roll against any unit other than the nearest enemy unit.

Hive Fleet Adaptations (apply to all units)

  • Behemoth: You can re-roll failed charge rolls for units with this adaptation

  • Kraken: When a unit with this adaptation Advances, roll three dice instead of one and pick the highest to add to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit for that Movement phase. In addition, such units can Fall Back and charge in the same turn.

  • Gorgon: You can re-roll wound rolls of 1 in the Fight phase for units with this adaptation.

  • Jormungandr: A unit with this adaptation (other than units that can fly) always has the benefit of cover for the purpose of shooting attacks. If the unit advances or charges, however, it loses the benefits of this adaptation until the start of your movement phase.

  • Hydra: You can re-roll hit rolls in the Fight phase for units with this adaptation that target units containing fewer models than their own.

  • Kronos: You can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for units with this adaptation in your Shooting phase if they did not move in the preceding Movement phase.

  • Leviathan: Roll a D6 each time a unit with the adaptation loses a wound whilst it is within 6' of a friendly Synapse unit from the same hive fleet. On a 6, the damage is ignored and the unit does not lose a wound. Ignore this adaptation on a unit that is currently affected by the Catalyst psychic power.

Psychic Powers
Catalyst, Onslaught, The Horror are unchanged.
Psychic Scream:

  • WC5

  • Targets nearest enemy within 18' and does D3 mortal wounds. If the target is a psyker, also roll 2d6. If the value is higher than the enemy psyker's leadership, the enemy psyker loses 1 spell at random.


  • WC5

  • Target enemy unit within 12' of the psyker fights last.


  • Target unit within 36' of the psyker essentially gains synapse.
