unapreciated tyranid units
RIPPERS EAT FACE!!! If there are any tyranid players out there I must advise that if you have a ripper squad field them. I played my friend who played space marines and my ripper squad of only 3 bases ended up cutting through 2.5, 5-man tactical squads and the better part of a 10-man assault squad with a Chaplin. those little buggers earned back their points 6 times over that game. do not underestimate these critters or they will eat your face!
On another note, a ranged carnifex is not all that great, they naturally shoot like and ork and with enhansed sences their aim can be improved to that of a guardsman. that is why I say that if you need to kill a lot of units really fast, I would go with a hive tyrant with enhanced senses, poison sacs, twin-linked death spitters, and a barbed strangler, it's cheaper point wise, the weapons are still just as leathal (tyranid weaponms have a strength limit after all) and it will be as accurate as a space marine, and it still has 4 wounds, and it can never be a victim of instant death which is something the sniperfex cannot boast.
