Welcome to Librarium Online!
Carnifexes under 115 points can be taken as elites. According to the entry, I think that they have to be 114 or less, since it says total cost of less than 115 and not less than or equal to. I've whipped up some variations. I believe the stat line for the Fex in 4rth is the same as the stat line for the BioMorph table Fex entry in the back of the 3rd ed book, but I'm not positive since I don't have both Codexes with me.
Long range Fex (most bang at long range)
Spore Cyst Edit: I goofed here. The Spore Cyst upgrade only puts spore mines in base contact with the creature and they drift the next turn. They are not shot out...good if you don't want to be assaulted by anyone with an armor of 4-6 though.
Short range Fex (most number of shots)
HtH Fex 1 (4 attacks, 6 on the charge, speed of a powerfist)
HtH fex 2 (4 attacks (5 attacks if in base with 4 or more enemies), 6 on the charge, speed of a powerfist)
Toxic Miasma (enemies at -1 WS)
And just for a laugh, here is the most expensive Carnifex possible:
Adrenal Gland x2 (for I and WS)
Total of 337 points for one model. Though, if you change out the 2 VCs with Crushing Claws and a pair of ST (making him 300 even) and you stand a good chance of killing a C'Tan in one on one combat.

Nice info, gonna be interesting to get the most out of a 114pts fex.

If it lives it will be consumed
Lol I should use a bunch of those super fexes with some maxed out tyrants, just for laffs.

Use the new codex and try out the new stuff en do post a battlereport on how it went.
And let us know how the units performed in your opinion
I like this, I can't get my fex's as elite, this could be nice I'm looking forward to get new dex myself, I'm so much gonna buy it soon, and starts converting my 3rd edition army into 4th edition and kick some serious ass
Lordy, that's really legal? There isn't a limit to the number of biomorphs or a point limit or anything? I feel sorry for anyone who spends that many points on a land raider when we can have these monstrosities. . . .Originally Posted by Gojiratoho
