mine is genestealers cos of their badass claws and with rendering claws in swarms they can take down just about everything
I like rippers...they look cute and it's a nasty surprise for many opponents to find out that they're leaping and 50% of them have rending claws
I Love a Bug of my own creation called the Dragon Tyrant. It boasts Four wings, a S of 9, rending claws and Scything talons, along with extended Carapace. This beastie kicks ass! I ripped the ***** out of my friend's Lemun Russ in like the second turn! BYE BYE!
Rending claws are inefficient on a S9 model, a second set of scythes is clearly more effective.
How can a hive tyrant be S9? Did you use the tyranid monstrosity rules? I hope those four wings are only modelled, without any additional effect compared to *only* two wings.
Monstrosities are heavy support by the way, never HQ.
are you a tyranid plaer, cud i need someone to specificly tell me what IB affects.
Please be more precise, what exactly do you want to know. I can't give you a complete summary of the rules, as these are copyrighted by GW and it could get LO into trouble if i post them here.
My bad, that's S 7. Silly me......As for the four wings, it just looks cooler, no extra benefit other than flight....
Rending claws do indeed have a place with the Tyrant...that being better armor penetration and auto 6-rolled wounds on the big boys in the game, specifically other monstrous creatures.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

You are half wrong. The only benifit of Rending Claws on a monsterous creature is the auto wound on a 6. Remember - Monsterous creatures ALWAYS ignore armor saves in close combat, and ALWAYS get 2d6 to piecrce vehicle armor.
So think about it - to get the benifit of rending claws you need to roll a 6 right? Vs a vehicle, if you roll 1 and 6 (thats 7) and have strength of 6 (non mutant tyrant) you are already adding 13 to your strength. Thats the WORST roll you can get. a 13 is good enough for just about any vehicle. Now you want to roll another d6?
Now tyrant is already doing s6 attacks on people wiht no armor save. So, unless you routinely fight things with a toughness of greater than 6, the rending claws wont help you very much.
Think abotu what you give up - instead of the claws you could take a venom cannon and shoot 3 times a turn at a range of 36" for Str8 with ap 4.
And to answer the thread, Lictors. Easily my fav.
not sure what i need to know, just make page references if i get something totaly wrong, this codex is so confusing.
