With an 18 models army you may have some troubles playing maelstrom/objectives... but OTOH this list seems legit and could be a pain.

I think it’s brilliant, I am a Tyranid player myself and love the idea. However, the only issue I see and I don’t see much of in 8th edition is your synapse at least running one Tyranid Prime behind all the fexes would suffice.

At 2000 points lots of factions have the tools to deal with carnifexes only being T7 8W but it would be funny to see 18 carnifexes marching up the board and to be honest if you swapped old one eye for swarmy for his double move ability to catapult a carnifex unit may be more beneficial?

Thanks for the input. The plan is just to charge through the opponents line and take out any vehicles. Something I realized is the carnifexes wont be able to go on to the second floor of buildings to get at infantry.

Yeah a source of synapse would help the army a lot, I also like the idea of the swarmlord leading an army of carnifex. Ill try dropping old one eye and something else for the swarmlord, thanks for the input!

I believe in the codex lore section there is a part where either the swarm lord or a regular hive tyrant commands a large quantity of carnifex at something big and they simply wreck its face

Looks like a great idea for a list, very interesting indeed. The only issue I'd have with it is that it's very CP-light, you only have 4, and you also have no ranged weapons at all except perhaps Spore Cysts (can't remember if they're a weapon or ability).

I would suggest some hive guard for some shooting capability. Maybe drop two fexes ?

I would suggest a few dakka fexs etc or some variety. Just say you make all them fexs, is awesome, then what? You play it a couple of times and do well or get smashed... What then? If you make a few varieties of fexs in each group can use them in your army latter. I love symmetry as well but maybe change stuff up a bit.

Hive Tyrants are very similar to fexes right?

I mean they still work with your theme.
