just a space marine hater
well i know it not really to much of a new idea but i really liked the tanker bug from starship troopers. so im making one for my tyranid army, but i cant quite figure the data for him. i was thinking about this: WS4, BS4, S8, T6, W3, I2, A2, Ld10, and Save 3+. Weapon is a vemon cannon and it has rending claws and it can tunnel. it will cost about 160pts to field it and it will count as a heavy choice. it will be about the middle of a leman russ and a land raider in size.
You might get better responses in the Rules development or Tyranid boards.

'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Not sure why this is about Nids but also with a space marine chapter poll?
Why ask why?
Sounds cool though.....wait is that the big fire spitting bug?
i just did a space marine because its my number 1 army and thats all i could think about. yes thats the bug in starship troopers thats sprays fire everywhere. very slow but kills infantry by the dozens.
Hmm.... I'm going to go ahead and shut down this poll. It's completely meaningless in light of the topic at hand. Polls are meant to gather data relevant to the topic, not just to be used because the option is available.
I'm also booting this to our Tyranid section for you, since you will get some better feedback there.
If I may ask you to reconsider the size of your font - taking into account various screen resolutions, the font you've chosen could easily discourage someone from wanting to read your post.
Well, there is always the possibility of making it an apocalypse thing and use the hellstorm template with a high strength and medium AP?
Much better than a venom cannon to my mind.

Using a Tanker bug as a Tyranid is fine. You could give it the rules for a Scythed Hierodule and use it in Apocalypse. You will get more fun out of it that way. That it doesn't have the precise weapons of the sythed Hierodule doesn't matter. The rending claws are rather pointless as they won't be of any use on something with a strength of eight, they just can't benefit something that strong in 5th edition rules.
