Double devourers is always good for just insane ammount of shots for anti infantry work, if you need that. Apart from that almost running them as combat with the old sything talons for bonus talons. Don't really know apart from that often other units fulfill the role of anti tank better.

Double devourers sounds good and maybe rendering claws to go with as the are slightly better AP ?. although i am tempted by all scything talons just for the looks and as you say other models do the tank buster roll better.

Carnifexes are Monstrous Creatures, they're AP2 anyway.

Double Devourer is absolutely the way to go if you're concerned about the gaming side; if not, then whatever you think looks cool.

That great thanks for the advice I think I am going to try to make twin linked devoure's and use the "crab claws" for the other arms or should I just go for single dev's on each arm?

I don't think anyone would mind you throwing in some shiny claws as long as you're honest about it's equipment. Though in ridiculously big games WYSIWYG makes life a whole bunch easier.

On another note: CLAAAAWWWS

I've ended up with the same first carnifex as yourself, and I built my second with stalons / crushing claws A: because it looks awesome, and B: worlds best can opener provided it can catch the can.

C: claaaaws

These fine gentleman are correct though, the twin - twin linked devourer with brain leech worm carnifex or "dakkafex" is absolutely wonderful, and easily more competetive than my builds.
