I dont have any in game experience with tyranids but unless your facing an army with a decent amount of multi-wound characters with toughness above 3 then the implant attacks arent really needed. For the other stuff, I really couldnt say much(lacks of XP). Hope I helped a bit. :D

You need to decide what you want your Tyrant to do. Mixing cc and shooty makes him less effective in both areas. He isn't quite as kick ass of a tyrant in game, as he is on paper.

If you want a shooty Tyrant, give him a VC/BS or a 2x TL Devourer combo.

If you want a cc Tyrant, give him 2x Scything Talons.

But, statistically, a Tyrant with 2x TL Devourers, shooting at a unit then charging it, will cause the most wounds out of any combonation.

I agree with $Black Katalyst^^

Also you might want to remove some of the biomorphs that are no really need. Like the adrenal glands (WS) and toxic miasma for example. I would pick one due to them having similar effects and be on a model with an already high weapon skill.

Try and keep the point cost down, a 271pts for a model with 4 attacks seems a little steep to me. Considering you can get a tyrant with a similar effect for much less.

Oh Captian, My Captian, this Tyrant would deffinantly kick alot of booty, but you can't have Bio-Plasma and Acid Maw. Cut one of those(tough choice, but easy on a carni, Bio plasma all the way) and if you have to cut something else cut Toxic Miasma, cause it bassicaly gives you an additional WS and (the number) is fine with just the adrenal gland

I agree with pretty much everyone else, concentrate on one area of expertise. My shooty tyrant has TL devourers and a venom cannon, and he shoots about 4 or 5 turns of the game, and is only around 170 points. Your tyrant has a good gun, but you'll get to use it twice, and then thats 40 points wasted. Also, my flying tyrant has 2 scything talons and no warp blast, as it just reduces his usefulness, only shooting twice, and wasting enough points for 4 gaunts. He's only 200 points now. Yes, your guy is gonna do a bit of damage, but not enough to gain his points back. And you'll be wanting that extra 80 points to have a few more warriors, or whatever, which would help more.

Fast assault cc.
Tyrant
-Toxin Sacs
-Winged
-Scything Talons
-Scything Talons
-Warp Feild
178pts

Fire support/cc.
Tyrant
-Enhanced Senses
-Toxin Sacs
-Winged
-TL Devourers
-TL Devourers
-Warp Feild
196pts

Fast attack heavy fire support.
Tyrant
-Enhaced Senses
-Toxin Sacs
-Winged
-Venom Cannon
-Barbed Strangler
-Warp Feild
232pts

Walking heavy fire support.
Tyrant
-Enhaced Senses
-Extended Carapace
-Toxin Sacs
-Venom Cannon

These setups are the most used/cost effective Tyrants.

If you leave out the Toxin Sacs on the shooty Tyrants, you can conserve a lot more points if need be.

Hope it helps.

brother-captain don't double post. For your tyrant it's not good to mix shooty and cc. Why? Because when your in CC your wasting all those points you spent on it for shooting your wasting your points that you spent for CC. Katalyst pretty much summed up whats good to give the Hive Tyrant.

opps your right, but acid maw on a tyrant wouldn't be so bad, the streanght isn't very high but the re-roll to wounds would deffiantly help, it is a matter of opinion, like super chargers and turbo chargers, both kick ass, but in different ways. If you keep toxin sacs, get Bio, if you drop them, pick up the Acidic Maw, but of coarse bio is cheaper.
