Welcome to Librarium Online!
Overtime I have been planning on making a bigger and more versatile army list that goes by my budget. I can't afford the heirophant or most other giant tyranid creatures, so thats why my army is going to be as versatile and as affordable as possible. This is it so far as to what I'm thinking. Note I am doing this by memory so it may change with any error I have placed on it.My Army ListHQ
Hive Tyrant: BS, venom cannon, Toxin Sacs, Toxic miasma, extended carapace,shadow in the warp, 2 tyrant guard.
1 Broodlord with extended carapace and toxin sacs and 7 Genestealers retinue with extended carapace
Tyranid warriors: 3 broods of 4 tyranid warriors. One brood with one tyranid warrior with a venom cannon, scything talons, enhanced senses, toxin sacs, extended carapace and three tyranid warriors with deathspitters, scything talons, enhanced senses, toxin sacs, and extended carapace. One brood with one warrior having a barbed strangler, scything talons, enhanced senses, extended carapace, toxin sacs and three warriors having a devourer, scything talons, enhanced senses, extended carapace, and toxin sacs. One brood with 4 warriors With scything talons, rending claws, adrenal glands(ws), toxin sacs, extended carapace, bio-plasma and leaping.
2 Broods of 12 Genestealers: with extended carapace.
24 termaguants: flesh borer.
7 ripper swarms with leaping
3 ravenors with scything talons rending claws and devourer
3 Zoanthropes with warp blast, and synapse or psychic scream depending on army against
3 Biovores: Bio-acid and toxin

or Heavy Support Ranged Carnifex: VC+BS, enhanced senses, Reienforced Chitin, bonded exoskeleton, extended carapace, regeneration. Depending on army up against.
This would be my army for Apocalypse, any comments that will be helpful in making this army more efficient are welcome, especially in its strategic chance in an event such as apocalypse and any army playing.
My strategy would be that the hive tyrant would be a footslogging ranged weapon so that he can take out squads of troops and especially tanks like predators, while his psychic power Shadow in the Warp will cause inconvenience to any enemy psyker. The broodlord squad would infiltrate if allowed and probably go for the command squad, and any other dangerous shooting squads/armor while at the same time providing synapses coverage. They tyranid warriors while fan out and provide synapse coverage as well while either shooting troops armor or going into close combat as I have designated them as their purpose. The two genestealer squads will take out any tough things such as tanks and heavily armored troops while the guant squads will swarm and overwhelm the troops squads as well as the ripper swarms keeping busy anything dangerous. The ravenors will individually assist in close combat especially with the guants. The zoanthropes are in charge of blasting any armor my Hive tyrant, tyranid warriors, biovores, and carnifex are having trouble with such as a monolith for example while at the same time either providing synapse coverage or causing fear to enemy squads with their psychic scream as it will matter what army I will go up against. The biovores will be my long range artillery taking out tanks with their bio-acid spore mine and open topped vehicles with their toxin spore mines. And finally the carnifex will either go into closecombat it it has the crushing claws and scything talons or will shoot at heavy armour with it barbed strangler and venom cannon. I made both carnifexes as tough and hard to kill as possible since the weaponry of other races with this much points are going to be extremely dangerous to my big ones. Any helpful comment to make my strategy and army better are welcome.
