    Why take Warp Field on your HT for 25 points when you can increase its armor save to 2+ for 10 points less?

    Is it simply because of the extremely rare instance when the psy power keeps you from having your second HT count as a separate species for a brood mutation qualifications?

    Seems thin.

    You see, heres the funny thing about that......Warp field was meant more for the Zoanthrope on which you don&#39;t spend any points.......It was only given to the Tyrant as an option, thats in the case that you do not make it your own species.....

    The only thing simple about Tyranids is the fact that they have one "brain" among millions of bodies......everything rules wise is very confusing, thats why I chose them as an army&#33;&#33;

    i always make mine from the back as you can have more pshycic powers, biomorphs etc. and i take extended carapace from the back as its cheaper.

    Yeah I use the back of the book too, but for some reason it doesn&#39;t work on the Army builder I have. It won&#39;t give me the option for extended carapace on the Tyrant.

    The extended carapace only applies to biomorphs, and 4 a HT the stats are lower then usual. So you can only build up your HT to what it would normally be for 10 points more. If u got tyrant guard id use them instead

    My HT can be found here. I like him for 169 pts. The 2+ armor save is a must.
