Default my tyrannic idea

this is actually the sequel of the weapon question.
I want to make a tyrant with 2 TL devourers, but what next?
what other biomorphs and/or psychic powers should I give him?

I think of giving him warp blast to deal with tanks, but I also want to give him cc 'morphs, because the devourers have quite a short range(18")

w8-ing for answers.

warp blast for tanks, I think you'll be better off with smashing it apart...but ok

and short range...go get wings so you can close more easily!

Then give it Warp Blast for killing tough beasties/tanks or Warp Field to increase its chances of passing its armour save.

The problem with taking Warp Blast is it's a shooting attack, and you can't fire your twin-linked pain gun.

Also, you can only take one psychic power with him. I always take warp field because I always take wings (EC is not an option for this load out because you cannot take EC with wings). I know a 6+ invulnerability save sounds pitiful, but its better than nothing. In my experience the twin-linked pain gun is too much of a bullet magnet for him to run around with anything less than a 2+ save.

Because Mr. Tyrant is a MC, he gets to shoot with 2 weapons per turn

This is true. However, the warp blast entry specifically states it can't fire any other ranged weapons that turn.

Pike is correct, you may choose to use Warp Blast OR fire TWO twin-linked Devourers.

OK, how does this sound?
tyrant with pain guns, warp field, wings, implant attack and bio plasma/acid maw (still can't decide between those)

another question,
I still don't have a tyrant ('cause I'm saving 4 a PS3), so I don't know what to expect. what's actually IN the box?(the standard one)
are wing included? and what biomorphs and weapon-symbiotes are inside?
(I hope you still reply after this question, because I sound like a total rookie, right?)

No, wings are not included. Games Workshop sells Dragon and Balrog wings as bits on their website, however.

Metal-wise, the kit comes with the entire Tyrant and the Lash Whip and Bonesword. It also includes the plastic, Tyranid MC weapon sprue, which includes a pair of Devourers, a pair of Deathspitters, a Venom Cannon, a Barbed Strangler, two pairs of Talons - more or less one of every weapon symbiote. It's the same sprue that comes with Carnifex.
