Default Uh-oh FAQ questions

So according to the 5th edition Tyranid FAQ, it says "A model carring two of the same ranged weapon counts them as a single twin-linked weapon"

This doesnt clear things up at all. Does it count as the actual model (WYSIWYG) or does it go buy what you pay for (such as you BUY 2 TL devourers, but its technically only one because you only pay for one)

That line is for the purposes of weapons that don't already come twin-linked. For example, a Warrior doesn't get Twin-linked Devourers or Deathspitters, unless you purchase two of them, unlike the Carnifex or Hive Tyrant, whose Devourers and Deathspitters come pre-Twin-linked. In the case of a Carnifex, a singular weapon that becomes Twin-linked when purchased twice would be a Venom Cannon or Barbed Strangler.

Basically, if you buy two of something that is not already twin-linked, it becomes twin-linked. If it already is Twin-linked, as is the case with MCs above, then you simply get another pair, to make two pairs of Twin-linked weapons.

There's a really nasty anti-personnel build of carnifex with two pairs of twin-linked weapons: devourers, I think? And I think they also have Living Ammunition, so it's a sick number of dice, rerolling to hit and rerolling to wound. Anything without good armor saves (and some things WITH good armor saves) just get clobbered. Sometimes I think it's the tremors from all those dice hitting the table that makes the fall down!

The carnifex isn't as nasty as the hive tyrant with 2 pairs of devourers. 12 shots at BS4 S5, rerooling to hit and wound.

Yeah, its the Hive Tyrant you want to do that with.
I have a Hive Tyrant w/ Enhanced Senses and 2 TL Devourers (12 shots, reroll to hit and wound)
a Flyrant with just about everything CC you can give it and 2 pairs of scything talons
3 Carnifexs with just about everything CC and Crushing Claws and Scything talons
3 Carnifexs with 2 TL devourers and enhanced senses (113 points so are elite choices)
and GENEEESSSTTEEEAALLLLEERRRRSSSSSS
As you can tell I don't really care about synapse.

(Note that on smaller point games I just take off some biomorphs)
