    A TMC list at this size point game especially to this degree is a bit much, I think you should drop the tyrant guard and at least one elite fex, keep the two heavy fexes as is and don't add another carnifex or zoanthrope. Instead add more genestealers, extended carapaces or not add more of them your still going to want more of a killing blow, shooting works well for most troops but you really need a close combat element to the army and 6 genestealers really doesn't seem like it'll do it.

    If your really intent on all the TMCs in this size game then drop the genestealers for rippers or spinegaunts, they are cheaper and allow you to beef up your TMCs more.

    I would give one of the Hive Tyrants wings and make him cc oriented just to tie up some heavy weapons cause that'll help in case someone with alot of heavy fire power starts picking out your carnifex with a longer range and ya you should drop one of the elite ones for larger groups of genestealers or as Pathofskulls said some ripper swarms cause they can be really annoying especially when your opponent finds out they can charge 12 inches with the leaping biomorph(im just starting tyranids so if im wrong anywhere sorry) to actually answer your main question I would take another carnifex. I would also give your hive tyrant extended carapace if all your guards die.

    i think youve got too many carnifexs maybe just add a few genestealers instead of the carnifex or zoans.

    What do you mean you think he has too many carnifexes? He's likely going for a TMC list. I would take the Zoanthropes over the fexes for the added punch of there warp blast.

    If your gonna make the flyrant close combat oriented make it last so get rid of warp blast and give it warp field and adrenal glands(+1ws) and if you have the points toxic sacs. Also im sorry i didnt realize how many points leaping were so you should probobly just get rid of that and add a couple more bases.

    Additional WS yes, but he can live without the warp field, think about it this way, if he can live out the warp field then in addition to being a troop killer he can also be a tank killer.

    Ya good point about the warp field. Think he should keep the raveners or just add a few more genestealer broods? Id go for the genestealers, since ravaners dont seem that great in a carnifex-heavy army?

    Today 168
    Yeah genestealers would be better, raveners are good in gaunt armies because they tend to draw fire from the gaunts, but here thats not necessary. Genestealers also have more kick to them then raveners do.
