I hope they do something about how challenges work for Tryanids. Seriously they are giant alien bug monsters how the hell does  a Tervigon challenge a chapter master to a duel?
Should the miserable Grot crews survive for long they will soon become deafened and have to resort to a rudimentary system of sign language. This is rarely successful as there are only so many signs a Grot can carry around with him.

I just wish they would can the whole challenge thing.  It just doesn't fit with the 40k aesthetic IMHO.  I mean you have swarms eating all the life on a planet, the "good guys" issuing Terminatus orders left and right and dropping virus bombs from space, but yet... on the battlefield, the combatants have honor enough to stand aside while their commanders fight it out mano-a-mano?  Just always strikes me as silly.

You could just have no tyranid units be characters.  Or maybe only the broodlord (who seems like he is meant to be a challenge monkey, and they're part human).  I think that would make perfect sense.

Doubt this is what the rules say, though.

More like the chapter master is all "Let me show you how this is done, boys!" Or the squad is like "You got this one chief, show us how it's done."

You can literally forge the narrative any way you want.

Indeed, and the bigger tyranids may be biologically programed to hunt down enemy leaders to distrupt enemy communication.. so there you go  ;)
