    Armor

    I have a good start on an all shooty army, but I can figure out a good solution to Tanks. I'm thinking some Zoanthropes, but is there anything that I missed that hits better than a 4+ with a good shot?

    Thanks

    Sniperfex. (carnifex with BS/VC.)

    Our only thing that can hit better than a 4+ is a tyrant with biomorph. (He can hit on a 3+) The downside is he can't use a S10 venom cannon.

    I was thinking about him, but I wasn't too sure about him... I'll give him a try ^^

    Gunfexes (Barbed strangler and venom cannon) are your best bet. Boomfexes (Barbed strangler and scything talons) are also helpful.

    I have found zoanthropes don't work too well because of the short range and the shots seem to miss a lot anyway. They normally end up just providing synapse for me.

    Hive Tyrants with toxin sacs and enhanced senses can fire a str 8 venom cannon at BS 4 which is actually quite good, especially when you consider it is 3 shots from each venom cannon. This is usually enough to stun or shake a tank for a turn which is sufficient until you can get something into combat with it. I have also found winged hive tyrants with 2 sets of scything talons to be quite good at destroying tanks.

    I'd say keep the hive tyrants, get rid of warriors and/or gaunts for 2 gunfexes.
