    If you have heavy support warriors (aka multiple v-cannons) do they count as a new species or do they count as a warrior in a heavy support slot? (provided of course the onlly difference is the weapons)

    According to the tyranid Q&A only the actual biomorphs count in order to determine if two broods of warriors are different species, weapons do not.

    "Q. When creating your own Hive Fleet, does simply giving the broods
    different weapons constitute a new species, even if all the biomorphs and
    biomorph enhancements are exactly the same? It seems to say that any
    changes in the brood would make it a different species, but I just want to
    make sure.
    A. In the case of Warriors where the weapon can be changed within the brood, a
    species would have to have different biomorphs to be a new species (so the
    examples are wrong in that respect). However, in the case of something which
    can’t have different weapons as standard, a weapon change will create a new
    species. For example, Gaunts must have identical weapons or they count as
    different species, but Warriors can vary their weapons."
