Default Tyranids Beasts

For deployment purposes how are they treated, IE Leaping Warriors are classed as Beasts on page 87, but do they get deployed as a troop choice ?, as for escalation missions.

Nope, warriors are elites and sometime HQ only.

It's an expression relating to sticking your head up your arse.

I think Fat-Tree is correct, they deploy as normal units from their respective deployment slot as far as I know.

Unless there's been errata that I'm not aware of, or missed something in the main rulebook (which is likely), Tyranid Warriors with the Leaping biomorph do NOT count as beasts. They get the 12" charge that Beasts do, but they do not get the Fleet movement that Beasts do. Since the biomorph doesn't change them to Beasts, I would suspect that they still count as infantry for purposes of Escalation.
