Default Monstrous Creature HQ question

Hi all! I had a question about Monstrous Creature HQs such as a Tyranid Hive Tyrant. Can they or can they not be targeted by anyone because they are a Monstrous Creature, or do they retain the protection of being targeted by being an HQ?

Short answer: Yes.

Monstrous creatures are shootable.

Independent characters are not shootable.

Hive Tyrants are MC's, you can shoot them. Chapter masters, by contrast, are IC's, so you can't target them unless they are the closest enemies.

Ahh... I understand... it's the Independant Character part of it that makes them not targetable... not just the fact they're and HQ unit.

Thanks for the reply!

Not entirely true... IC can be shot at if they are the closest target.

But yes, TMC and MC's are targetable at all times
