The plural of Carnifex is 'Carnifexes'.  The contents page of the Tyranid codex plainly states this, so I don't know why I was wondering whether it was 'Carnifexen' or 'Carnifices'.  It just goes to show what an overactive imagination gets you.  In any event, I am now running a couple of them in my list and actively enjoying them.  (I have played all of 3 games with them so far, so this makes me an expert).

The Eightfold Path

I decided to start listening to audio books whilst painting.  Specifically, Horus Heresy dramas from Black Library.  This seemed like a good idea at the time; its like double dipping the hobby.

Hive Biatch

I read a really interesting article on BOLS which discussed the origin of Tyranid names.  Crone, Termagant, Harridan, Harpy, Dominatrix are all disparaging names for women apparently.  I can fully relate to this because my Crone was such a bitch to paint.
