Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just got some tyranid from my friend (trade for some space) and i don't what to pick next Here what i got:
1 CC carnifex
I though about buying a tyran but i don't know if is very need? A shooty carnifex could be cool too or i just save some money to get the battlebox wich seem great?
Thanks for future help.
Hi there, the collection of Tyranids you have is very strong and is very similar to a 1200pts list I am using,:yes:
The only thing different between yours and mine is that I have a Hive Tyrant on top of it, so I will go on about getting one of those.
The Hive Tyrant is one of the most powerful HQ choices in 40k, able to stand toe to toe with the chaos Daemon princes and even a Blood thirster if given the right bio-morphs.
There are two types of Tyrants, the ones with wing flying without Tyrant guard and is commonly a CC monster, while the other has tyrant guard and has a gun or two.
The one I take is with two Tyrant guard and scything talons and venom cannon to finish of that 1200pts,
So the choice is yours, of course if you like the Carnifex model more then the Tyrant, then go for it, but you will find that your warriors as Hq will not be tough or fast enough when facing those space marine elites and HQs, which I do all the time (Wolves).
So if it was me and I had your stuff and was thinking what to get next it would be the Hive Tyrant and Tyrant guard.
See my Tyranids here.
May your food be plentiful and filling.
We will gorge ourselves in Solar - we will feast on Terra.

I think that you should get a tyrant. It does wonders in cc (winged with 2X ST) and provides fast moving synapse whivh is improtant. It helps out in cc with the hormies, a powerful combination. If you can give it wings. If not then go for the walking variant with one or two gaurds and a VC.
The other option (for me anyway) would more warriors. I love 'em. Give them leaping, ST, RC, Ag-I and extended carapace and you have cc monsters. I have six filling out one HQ slot with a tyrant in the other. Again they provide good synapse support.
Anywho, whatever you get i'd suggest something with synapse, because i know how valuable it is. Happy hunting.
Well, then I buy a hive tyrant but no wing for the moment because i can't afford those 20$ wings. I think equip him with two VC? Or one and a pair of ST and three guard(because i can find three old guard for only 15$!).
Thanks for help anyway.
2 venom cannons is a waste of points IMO..Originally Posted by virus646
flying tyrant wins bigtime (either with 2 sets of scything talons or with 2 twin-linked devourers)
or else you should try the broodlord its NAAAAAASTY in close combat
(and a lot cheaper then a tyrant+wings.. BUT if you have the money go for the tyrant )
but then again.. depends on what mission you play and what army your opponent plays
good luck and stuff
well like everyone else id say hive tyrant (i havent got one yet :cry: ) but yer ive heard there great and plan on getting that as my next model
If you want cheaper wings that still look good, buy the balrog wings and pin them to the HT- they only cost $8 (and many GW retailers will order them for you with no cost for shipping).
what i was going to do for my hive tyrant when i get it is buy Witch-king On Fell Beast and then get the wings off that it is even cheaper then the balrog
The Fell Beasts wings would look very tight also. I might try those wings or the Balrogs.
