Psychic Beacon

Detachment ability

Genestealer Patriarchs emit a strong psychic signal, which guides the parent Hive Fleet to the planet.


When you field an army that includes detachments that have the Psychic Beacon ability:

  • You can deploy any Mycetic Swarms that you have in the first turn, rather than roll for their arrival as Reserves.

    [TODO: Is this the right interpretation? Seems like it might be overpowered — include a single small Genestealer Cult detachment, and all Mycetic Swarms in a Tyranid army get to deploy on turn 1, no roll for Reserves required…​]
