I'm contemplating a Tyrannofex with a Fleshborer Hive. 20 boltpistol shots, with a better range than a termagant, and now not so bad in combat so you pile it forwards, maybe with a Hive Guard escort...
My other thought is an Exocrine with the same escort as my firepower. That one has more versatility, but not as much durability. But it does have the option of first turn piling forwards to get in range, throwing templates until it becomes too dangerous and then planting itself for multiple shots. The Guard don't care if they move or not, and all are adequate at defending themselves if needed. Slap a unit of zoanthropes with them for synapse control (who can hide behind the big guy) and that's quite scarey.
