I hgave found that with a tyrant their is only one difference between the extended carapace and the warp field ability is a measly 6+ invulnerable save. Is it worth paying an extra ten points for this?
If your Tyrant have wings you cannot put extended carapace on it, so you have to go for warp field. If you have a walking Tyrant i will go with extended carapace.

Unless you have 10 points left over and absolutely nowhere else to spend it
Gonna have to agree with Mente here. Only time those extra 10 points are worth it, is when it's your only option. Otherwise there's almost no reason to buy WF instead of just EC. Use the extra 10 points elsewhere, like a Carnifex, something else for the HT, or something else for any model that can buy something for equal or less than 10 points.
i think that wap field is worth it on a winged Tyrant. They can't have extended carapace normally so the warp field improves their save. But what I think is worth getting here is the improved armour save of warp field for the winged Hive Tyrant because it draws lots of firepower. The Hive tyrant needs the improved save as even lots of little hits that it will certainly recieve can cause it lose saves and die by a death of a thousand cuts. I don't think that warp field is worth it for walking Tyrants as the extended carapace is cheaper and the invunerable save is more or less useless.
Agreed. I use warp field when I have wings. When my tyrant is a walker I use EC and some guard.
I would say it isn't worth it either, but WF saved my ass in a tournament twice with double 6's that woulda killed my Tyrant haha...both opponents we not very happy...wish I could roll like that in fantasy.
