Tervigon artwork

The Tervigon is a massive Tyranid which serves as a living incubator capable of spawning Termagants.


A massive Synapse Creature[2], Tervigons can carry dozens of Termagants in a dormant slumber kept beneath its lumpen carapace. When traveling through space, Tervigons do not go dormant like other Tyranid creatures but instead roam the Bio-ships acting as guards capable of yielding Termagants to delay any intruders whilst using their potent synaptic link to awaken other Tyranid creatures. If a Tervigon is killed its nearby young are inevitably also killed in a released symbiotic backlash.[1]

Tervigons typically remain behind the main Tyranid swarm, bolstering its numbers by continually spawning dormant broods at will. Howevere there are times when the Hive Mind decides to unleash the creatures full might. In these cases, their colossal forelimbs are capable of scything through heavy infantry and light vehicles, while some bear massive claws that can rip through tanks and reinforced armor. Tervigons have even been known to smash great breaches in fortress walls, pressing their birthing sacs into the gap to unleash scores of lesser organisms directly into the enemy ranks.[2]
