I'm several years behind the curve but finally got around to working on a flying tyrant. I'm thinking that I'll likely go with a dakka flyrant, I've seen the FW devourer arms but are there any other good options for converting that build?

Devourers from the gaunts are way too small IMO and I'd want to somehow double up on the carnifex ones if I used those for a base but not sure how I'd approach it without them looking odd. Buying the FW ones is likely the easiest option but I'm not sure how they scale.

Doubling up the gaunt deoureres is a pretty simple kitbaash, loads of guides here and on google. You can even tripple them if you like. Alternatively the popular option is the Fleshborer Hives from the Tyrannofex kit. They're a bit oversized but it's our most effective weapon so kind of fits. Definitely worth magnetising a Flyrant for transport purposes.

The fleshborer hives are the direction I took for my Flyrants. They look pretty natural on them, not to mention intimidating.

I drilled holes in the top of the tyrant for his wings and then magnetized guns and CC weapons for a variety of options.

See the last 4 pictures on this slideshow.
