A Malanthrope is an odd creature created by the hive mind to collect specific DNA strands and is found lurking around war torn battlefields.

Not necessarily good or even decentbut 30″ move, can shoot in combat, can drop gargs, leave and charge anything else.

Azrael affects models, but that’s fine because models take saves individually. It is only 90 points unless I’m missing something and being a character AND affecting all unit types, not just Infantry… I think it’s already quite strong even if it only affects models.

The Malanthrope’s tendrils carry a venomous poison that is injected through the skin and causes excruciating pain. Does this mean all models have to be within 3″ to get the bonus, or that at least one model in the unit has to be within 3″?

If it functions they way they intended, it’s probably pts not 90 and works on units, rather than models. malanthorpe

Stonecrusher Carnifex is also way cheaper than the regular one for some reason? This penalty is not commutative with the same penalty from venomthropes.

Shrouded and Stealth were “if one model in the unit has it, all models in the unit have it”. Also not the way it works in 8th, see FAQ: Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet.

I think a lot of people are gonna go nuts over the Rule “omg it can move 30 inches and charge and it’s got thirty wounds and it can move over everything and and and and and! If you split your attacks between them, you make ten attacks divided as you choose between them.


But affecting whole squads of infantry while being untargetable is absurdly good. If it would affect units, it wouldn’t it be broken? It selectively collects and processes genetic material from fallen enemies before itself being reabsorbed into the biomass.

I have a Stone Crusher Carnifex with one bio-flail and one wrecker claw. You can’t shoot at models individually, only at units, so it makes no sense for the Malanthrope’s Shrouding Spores to affect models. Rulex opponent must subtract 1 from hit rolls for ranged weapons that target Hive Fleet Infantry units within 3″ of any friendly Hive Fleet Venomthropes”.
