Termagant with Strangleweb

The Strangleweb is a Tyranid Biomorph of a living spider-like creature that fires a sticky mesh of mucous-like strands which ensnare a target and then quickly shrink and harden to immobilise it. As the target struggles the web only constricts tighter until eventually they are crushed by the pressure.[1] Sometimes the strands are covered in a debilitating poison to aid in the constriction process.[2]

Often Termagants are armed with Stranglewebs in order to capture live specimens to return to a Tyranid Hive Ship for dissection and gene-splicing.[2]
