I don't really see the heavy VC on the carnifex as it becomes so expensieve for a sinlge str 9 blast that might just scatter of a tank.
For taking busting there are now much easier and cheaper ways of doing that.
The blast has a huge chance of scattering of a tank I think and so isn't that good. Also it's AP won't bother MEQ's much and isn't that useful for it's price against other models. A big barbed strangler (I forgot the new name) will work better overall if you want a big long ranged gun on a Carnifex, it's more likely to hit more models. Use bioplasma to sick up nastier death at close range with a melee-fex.
