Spine Banks

Spine Banks are a Tyranid biomorph made of rows of spines embedded in cavities in the carapace of a Tyranid creature which are fired by muscle contraction at close ranges. This showers an area with spines covered with poison which easily incapacitate and distract nearby enemies.[2] Spine Banks often form the Frag Spines studded along some Carnifexes.[1]
