Dakkafex: Often regarded as the best price/value unit in a tyranid army. I can not say that he is not- It's hard to kill - shoots a lot and costs a mere 113 points. The horror for armies without a lot of antitank capabilities. I normaly field two of those- mainly as a shield for my stealers but also to because they only get effective at short range due to their devourers.
Later on I added a third to my army since I am experimenting with harder setups. So far he works fine- even better if put in the heavy support slots so he can use additional spinebanks granting him 10 strength 6 shots at 12" range.
To better distinguish my models I started to vary the colors slightly making them lighter or darker and also used different highlighting colors.
The last one can be seen just after dippin it in woostain. The others show the final results.
