Noting the Tyranid lack of a flamer-template weapon, this is an attempt to fill that void without being overpowering or irritating.
Besides, what's a Godzilla list without flaming death breath?
Bio-Spew: Some Tyranid creatures have evolved a more advanced delivery mechanism for their Bio-Plasma attacks, allowing them to spray a cone of plasma that mimics a flamethrower.
Creatures with Bio-Spew may make a single attack in the shooting phase using a Flamer Template. This attack is resolved as a flamer attack, and has a Strength equal to the Creature -1 (to a maximum of S6, and an AP value of 5). A Tyranid with Bio-Spew may not take Bio-Plasma as well. A Tyranid Creature using the Bio-Spew biomorph counts as having fired one weapon in the shooting phase.
Creatures which can take Bio-Spew:
Hive Tyrant - A Hive Tyrant armed with Bio-Spew may not take Acid Maw as well
Tyranid Warrior - Only one Tyranid Warrior per brood may take bio-spew, a Tyranid Warrior Brood with bio-spew may not also take a Venom Cannon or Barbed Strangler
Edit - Suggestion Taken.

Sounds awesome. Alwayse wanted a way to have a carni with a flamer:w00t: . I think though that for the warrior brood though you should have it only 1 out of every 3 can take the biospew. I also beleive that one out of every 5 gaunts, not hormagaunts, but gaunts should be able to take this biomorph. At a max strength of 3 I don't think that would be very over powered.
We do have one flamer weapon though, the strangle-gaunt. Just incase you didn't know.

The only thing I would change is not allowing it to be used along with other weapons. I say it'd count as ranged weapon in it's own rights, so if you're a TMC you could use the Bio-Spew and one other ranged biomorph. That way people would be a bit more willing to take Hybrid TMCs, and it'd still remain balanced.
Good idea.Originally Posted by Caluin
It's updated now... and it certainly makes the idea of a hybrid CC/Short Ranged Carnifex sound more appealing to me.
