Well, there's the poll. If anyone sees it, please vote. Im planning on getting some, but I'd like to be forewarned of any major "suck-factor."

Thanks.

Zoas rock! They're great distraction and give you a lot of fire support if you can get them into range. There is a good reason (besides of fluff) that they're limited.

you can give them the pschic scream which lowers oppenents leadership and its cummulative...so if you have 3 zoas and a tyrant near an enemy unit that minus 4 to all leadership tests....plus the nids have very few heavy weapons so they seem cool to me

Things I really like about zoanthropes are that they can be in 3 places at the same time and the warp blast is increadibly effective - especially against chaos, SM and necrons with their 3+ saves.

The only thing I don't like is that a Lascannon can cause instant death to them.
The Tyranids are the most rapidly evolving race in the galaxy.  They are super-predators destined to hunt all others to extinction.
