    Feeder Tendrils and Bio-plasma

    In 4th Ed,:
    Would feeder tendrils (preferred enemy) improve the chances for bio-plasma to hit?

    In 5th Ed.:
    Would feeder tendrils allow a model to reroll the bio-plasma to hit roll?

    My take: 4th ed preferred enemy will not help the bio-plasma to hit because the bio-plasma rule (pg 32, Tyranid codex) specifies the roll needed and the codex will override the BGB. In 5th ed, there's no contradiction in rules so you can use preferred enemy to get the reroll.

    Feeder tendrils confer the bonus to models within 2" of it. I'm planning on running some feeder tendril genestealers along side a carni with bio-plasma.

    I think I found a snag in your idea. Look again at pg32 of the Tyranid Codex. It states that bio-plasma hits on 4+ "regardless of WS or target type".

    Because Preferred Enemy is based on "target types" (even though it counts all types for the Feeder Tendrils), Preferred Enemy can not affect the bio-plasma to-hit roll.

    Then again, we'll just have to wait and see exactly how the new version of Preferred Enemy is written.
