No, although I'm not sure what good it would do, as the Heavy Venom Cannon is generally for anti-tank. I'd rather fix the fact that Chaos Space Marines can make a better horde than we can.

Re: Tyranid Battleforce is it worth it?

Re: Dark Potential Scenario Creation Contest

not an actual entry, but would you be willing to place a chart in the back of the rules for alternate conditions of fighting, similar to warzone traits in 40k for some fluffy stories?

Re: Ideas for animals

i like the special rules you have for them (both 1 and 2) but i personally disagree with the bodies of the creatures as i think they should be more extraterritorial creatures than Earth-Based animals. something like the Dune worm would be cool, or center the creature around a theme rather than the s...

Re: Lichtors & Deathleeper

deathleaper is better than lictors in regards to poping tanks because it has rending on 5 or 6. so it has a somwhat decent chance of getting pens on most vehicles. also, with the ability to pop up everywhere, their use as character hunters is far more important with new wound allocation rules. are t...
