The Lictor looks similar to the Kraken (albeit far smaller when compared to rough scale like here) and is a special unit character from the war-gaming world of Warhammer 40K, and belonging to a race of savage alien “bugs” called the Tyranids. In the video game version of the primarily table top game, Dawn of War 2 saw the Lictor as an army leader choice. Usually, the largest bugs rule the hive and govern their actions in battle. The Tyranids are divided into 3 main hives or “fleets,” one of which is called Hive Fleet Kraken…and is where I got the joke from.

I’d post an image of a Lictor but GW (Games Workshop) who created Warhammer 40K is incredibly infamous for it’s copyright finickiness, so google Tyranid Lictor and you’ll see an image of one and I think you’ll smile.

Ya, I was a manager at a boardgame store and they are definitely in the business of making money, not great games. They are really terrible to work with (IMO) because they don’t offer any discounts/whole sale prices to vendors. They also wanted a LARGE order up front. Not a fan of them as a business, but great IPs.
