I've read lots of conflicting opinions on the tyrannofex. I am considering converting a third carnifex into one, and am wondering if people think they are worth it for their cost.
Yes, theyre a fantastic unit.....
In the right list. Tyrannofexs form our hardest hitting and longest ranged anti tank unit and are mentally surviveable. However they're obviously expensive and a bit slow, so they do have a particular role.
If youve got nothing to threaten long range tanks, then theres no reason why not. But investigate a bit. For example Ive taken to running harpies with adrenal glands at the moment. They're pretty reliable with TL and can damage infantry surprisingly well. If all else fails, theyre quick so a suicidal charge is always a possibility.
In summary, yes theyre worth it, but youve got options.
Your friendly neighbourhood gargantuan creature
Probably works in friendly games, but deffinetly fails in competative since most armies have lots of anty tank weapons who work even better against T6 monsters.
I've seen a couple of conversions that I sort of like the looks of, but with a name like Tyrannofex, I kind of expect something that will dwarf a Trygon Prime, and I don't think that Carnifex conversions cut it.
When you get down to it, I'm not very experienced at doing conversions. Converting a carnifex to a tervigon isn't too bad. I have some ideas from looking to see what others have done for a Tyrannofex. Most of the tyrannofexes I see are caranifex conversions anyways.
Also...I have a third carnifex, while I don't have extra Tyrgons(or anything bigger...which I think the only things bigger are the gargantuan apoc creatures).
I just finished mine, but its at my friends house drying (I DARE NOT TOUCH IT) I spent yonks on it. When I get it back ill put up some pics
