| Hive brute
Source: Nidal, Land of Shadows, pg(s). 56
Hive brutes are hive creatures transformed from beasts that originally rejected being incubation vessels for hive larvae.
A hive brute is a hulking, four-legged beast covered in thick chitin. Steaming acid drips from its snapping maw.
Hive brutes are less intelligent but stronger than their kin. Within the hive, they assist both workers and warriors in their tasks, serving as beasts of burden and war beasts.
