For 185 points, mutate the tyrant to Enhanced Senses, Toxin Sacs, and Extended Carapace. Give it two venom cannons. The result? 6 ST 8 AP 4 hits at 36'' range. Not too shabby, I think. Granted, it kind of blunts the close combat damage it could do, but in a list with a second tyrant with wings and all the cc trappings, it could give some much needed fire support, the equivalent of 2 or 3 VC carnifexes. This assumes the 4th edition rules where tmc can fire 2 weapons per turn. It would pretty much guarantee at least one glancing hit on a land raider per turn, and against more common types of armor, like 12, you'd get something like 3 glancing hits, which gives a 50 percent chance of blowing the vehicle up.

I would rather use a carnifex with 2 VC, the Tyrant is simply to good in cc to be wasted in such a way
I like the idea, but I agree with Dreachon, HT are too awesome in cc to loose but if you had two HT.... maybe... Id still prefer those weapons on a fex or put devourers on a fex...

hmmm i reckon the new rules for dual weilding VC will probably make the hivetyrant and carnifex even more expensive, we are assuming the Venomcannon will stay the same price when takin 2..and well we cant be sure now can we?
my advice... wait till the new codex is out, look at the points it will cost and what other new uprgades you will be able to take and then consider making a conversion. but i gotta agreee with Dreachon and slicer it would make more sense to stick two venomcannons on a carnifex for regular battles...
the amount of times my slow carni has walked up the board and failed to hit anything and not make it into CC...now with 2 VC's he may become a very nasty anti tank unit
also as some of the vets have allready pointed out just think of a seeding swarm carni with 2 devourers
im gunna leave my 2 winged hivetyrants as they are as warpblast is still awsome
unless the new rules offer something better and more point efficiant
