    1) Carnifexes require synapse, yes; but because they are LD 10 they are less susceptable to failing an instinctive behavior test then a LD 5 gaunt; so while it's not strictly necessary to keep them within Synapse range... sometimes it does prove helpful.

    2) Enhanced Senses, Venom Cannon, Barbed Strangler, Reinforced Chitin, Extended Carapace

    3) 2x Scything Talons, Toxin Sacs, Adrenal Glands (I), Flesh Hooks (114 points, so it's Elite in a 2,000 point game).

    With a little more points, this 'Fex becomes:

    3) 2x Scything Talons, Toxin Sacs, Adrenal Glands (I), Adrenal Glands (WS), Flesh Hooks, Extended Carapace

    personally i wouldnt want bioplasma on a fex, mainly beause it wastes his attacks
    alright, scenario

    you charge, putting yourself into B2B contact with 1 model
    bioplasma, hits, wounds, kills
    now f they take away the only model that is in base to base contact, you dont get the rest of your attacks
    in a general sense, bioplasma is a defensive biomoph, because its most effective when your opponent decides to charge you, making the "1 in base to base" problem irelevant

    the elite cc fex im currently running is:
    2xScything talons, both AG biomorphs and flesh hooks
    comes to 112pts

    True but he didn't ask for it :shifty: . He asked for a good ranged one and a cheap CC fex not a medium range :ninja: .
    Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.
