I am having trouble deciding:
1. What type of terrain my bases should be i.e. desert, urban, moon but not grass!
2. How I should incorporate casualties into the models (mainly genestealers). I was thinking of doing Eldar casualties since a lot of the conversions feature IG victims.
I would love to have help, feedback and ideas on this subject!
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
Eldar casualties are fun, but there are disadvantages. Dead IG are pretty easy to make when you combine skeleton, zombie, and cadian bits... wheras, those tend to be too big for Eldar models. (It's still possible, I've done it... it just requires a bit more trimming).
As for terrain, ask yourself: "What sorts of terrain do I like fighting in?" For me, personally (and my army's fluff), I chose Urban because it's a largely unexpected basing (and camo scheme) for Tyranids. You may also consider what colors you paint your Tyranids and ask yourself: "Ok, they look like this... what sort of terrain would they be camouflaged in?"
A third question to ask yourself, is what terrain do I have. It looks cool if your armies basing matches the terrain you have at home.
However, that being said, one of my favourite ways to base 'Nids is with "Tyranid Terrain". Kind of biological soupy goopy stuff. Basically like the inside of a Hive ship. Unfortunatly my Hive Ship terrain board died, so, it no longer matches.

I had the torso, head and arms of a SM, and the body with guts hanging out and a rope around it's neck that you get with the zombie boxed set. I chopped off the bottom of the zombie body, and attatched it to the space marine, added some suitable claw scars, and he presto! you have a mutilated space marine!
