    A friend of mine used this model against another friend of mine, and I must say: IT IS SO POWERFULL.
    It just went straight into cc when it arrived in the game, killed all the units that could fight back in that round, jumbed out of the cc in the next round so he could get another charge in the unit. There was nothing the other guy could do.

    ..? callidus is quite relatively weak aginst tyranids
    main reason: genestealers. these guys beat callidus in combat EASILY as they are much faster than them and also due to rendering claws. sure, callidus has invulnerable save, but against 20+ rendering claws? nope...
    and hive tyrants and carnies should have no problem insta-killing them with venom cannon etc... and they got enough wounds to resist the callidus
    u can also tie her up with rippers

    Besides, most tyranids have Ld10, so the callidus' flamer type weapon which uses the victim's Ld value instead of toughness is kinda useless - it wounds 6+.

    Even if he gets into close combat with a Tyrant he still needs a 4+ to hit and than another 6 to wound. His toughness is 4, so he is just as hard as a chaplain, give your tyrant implant attack and he will be dead if he gets wounded once.

    Every time someone says "Rendering Claws" I get this image of tyrants on the battlefield, making models for Pixar or Disney.

    I don't know why that happens but some of what the Calldius does it very bad like the re deployment which can screw up your entire plan, but other than that it is weak against nids better used against SM and the stuff that has Invunerables.

    rendering claws
    They are not rendering claws!! Render is what you do when you create a picture. It is rend! Rend! Rending is when you rip something open.
