Quick Questions:

1.) By upgrading a swarm from "Small" to "Medium" you double (acc. to the text in the list 10.2.1 ) all core units. So a medium swam consists (before upgrade) eighter of 4 warriors, 2 warriors and a tyrant or 2 warriors?

2.) 2x Massive Scything Talons (bc) Assault Weapons, EA(+1), TK: add two attacks with the profile to the hierodule (in addition to the attacks already granted by the War-engine DC)?
Or is it just one TK attack and the "2x" description ist fluff?

thanks :)

1) 2 Tyrants | 4 Warriors | 1 Tyrant and 2 Warriors.

2) It's armed with 2 talons, each of which grant an extra attack. So that's 2 extra attacks total.

Thanks for the quick reply, Dave.

So I found a little error on Army Forge. On The NetEA Army List for Tyanids a "Medium" Swarm ony count two Tyranid Warriors and you end up in complete random numbers when exchanging them for Hive Tyrants. I never crosschecked with the actual list on paper until an hour ago.

Additional test shows, the plain "Large" swarm ends up with three Tyranid Warriors :)

It's correct, the naming is wonky given the limitations of the app. It's "2x Two Tyranid Warriors" in a medium swam (4 total).
