Finally having a go at this game. The Protoid 6-6 counter and the Hive Mind counter both go in the box lid with the rest of the Hive swarm counters to be randomly drawn but they are noticeably bigger. Not a problem for the Hive Mind as it says it is revealed as soon as it is placed on the map, however with the Protoid it says 'When first revealed the Protoid is a 6-6 counter' It's obvious when it is stacked on the map what counter this is so should it be revealed as soon as it is placed on the map like the Hive Mind counter?
No. It's not revealed until it lands on the Craftworld. Yes, it is slightly bigger (but, I don't think it's supposed to be). In any case, remember space combat casualties are taken from the top of the Tyranid Hive Swarm stack. So, put the Protoid at the bottom of the stack and hope for the best.
