Default Munchkin: Warhammer 40000 - Tyranid and Miasman Grenade

Hello.
Tyranid can use one-shot item to get its bonus as permanent. Miasman Grenade has +5 bonus, but munchkin can't have a helper in current combat.
Question: if Tyranid uses this Grenade as permanent bonus, he also permanently can't have helpers till this card will be lost?

I'm curious to see what the ruling on this one will be...it could go either way, depending on the exact text of the card (which SJG frowns on posting here...Andrew's got every card in a binder, he'll be able to find it).

On one hand, if the card says "the bonus", then I'm expecting a "No, you only get the numerical bonus".

On the other, if the card says "the effects", then I'm expecting "Correct, you can no longer have helpers"

The Tyranid gets the combat bonus and no other effects.

Can Tyranid use Doppelganger to get permanent bonus, equal his own combat bonus?

As the rule is worded, yes. A good reason to be wary when mixing sets.

Thank you!
Another question: do I understand correctly, that Tyranid can have a helper with Doppelganger (like in case with Miasman Grenade)?

I am going to say "GOOD GOD NO" to that one. That's not an extra ability of Dopp, it's a restriction on its use.
