    Hive Tyrant or Carnifex

    Ive been playing quite a few games recently, (im still kind of a noob though), and Ive been finding it hard to pick between another Hive Tyrant, (Dakka Tyrant in specific), and a Sniper Fex. They actually cost pretty close to the same. Give me some of your ideas.

    Well, for you're situation, I think it would be best if you gave us maybe a copy of the list yo ussually run or what you already have, as both serve relatively different purposes, (the tyrant being mainly anti infantry and light tank while the carni is obviously ong range tank destruction as well as anti infantry)

    If I had to have my pick, I think that I would pick the tyrant as it is more destructive and all around more of a flexible thread, assuming that you already have a sniper fex or two in your army to handle the heavier tanks. If not, and the list already has anti personel in abundance, I would definately go with teh sniper fex.

    Both are rather flexible units that can serve more than one purpose, but it depends what will work the best in you're army IMO.

    Yea, I can't give an opinion until I know at least what kind of Hive Tyrant and Carnifex you already use.

    So tell us!!!

    Then I would get a second Carnifex, either another Sniperfex or one with a Venom Cannon, TL-Devourer and Spinebanks. A second Hive Tyrant can wait.

    You don't have enough heavy ranged support which is generally provided by a Venom Cannon, Barbed Strangler or Devourer on a Carnifex. I personally don't like the barbed strangler, but it's up to you. So my vote is for another Carnifex.

    I would have to agree with Zen based on what you have told us. Two devil tyrants is a little excessive when you only have one serious anti tank and long range unit. I would throw in another sniperfex to the list.

    BTW, how many points are you playing?

    Id have to agree with Zen, go with the heavy ranged support to help cover the rest of your army.

    My other choice would be MORE GAUNTS!

    But we do agree that a second Carnifex should be next..

    And off topic, but if the rumors are true about all blast weapons using scatter instead of rolling to hit and having no "partial hits", then I will start using the Strangler much more often.
