Welcome to Librarium Online!
I find it useless. Anyone have a use for it?
Yep, it's one of those useless upgrades that Carnifexes have and only a very small and selective bunch of people use.

It was a poor upgrade in 4th ed. as monstrous creatures counted as 10 models anyways.
In 5th ed. out numbering doesnt matter.
As of Tyranid 5th Ed. codex I have the Gaunts I wanted. I did, however, loose the sniperfexs I relied upon and they were more important then the gaunts.
It is useless. It was used in 4th ed, but now that the combat resolution rules have changed, it does nothing.
