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. Sometimes the strands are covered in a debilitating poison to aid in the constriction process.
