Default New Tyranid Apocalypse Datasheet: Screamer Killer Brood

Screamer Killer Brood

3+ Screamer Killer Carnifex models with an added bonus shooting attack if they are within 3" of each other:

Plasma Scream: Hellstorm Template S7 AP2 Assault1, starts from one of the Carnifex models.

Kind of neat.

It's only a template, so that kinda makes it suck for range. With such a low AP it could be a very viable alternative to assaulting.

Well, the way I was envisioning it, it's just an added attack on the way into an assault... It's an assault weapon, so you can happily do both in the same turn.

You run your Screamer Killers forward to assault range the way you normally would, just keep them together, and the turn you are about to assault - BAM - extra shooting massive template attack at decent strength and AP, right before they crash into and maul your target. Or, I guess with the Hellstorm template, that's long enough that they might forgo a Run the turn before they attack to put out an additional template shot if they won't need more than a 6" move to get into assault range the following turn.

And according to the language of the Datasheet, they don't need to be proper "Screamer Killers" with 2x Scything, +WS, and Bioplasma - they just need only 2x Scything in weapon symbiotes & Bioplasma, so you could field them cheaper than 114, and you could bulk them up a bit more than the standard Elite CC Fex would be too in other bio-morphs.
