I recently traded a chunk of my Eldar army for nids, along with the stuff I already had around for them. I'm not overly sure what of it would be too usable though. I've read through the stickys on here, and got a few ideas, but I'm still a bit unsure on what should be used and what should go. I love the potential swarm aspect of the Tyranids, so I collected as many gaunts as I could get my hands on, and would like to attempt to use as many as I can stuff into the list.
Anyway, the stuff I have is.
6x Tyranid Warriors- EC, Scything Talons, Deathspitters
6x Tyranid Warriors- EC, Rending Claws, Scything talons.
2x Ripper Swarms
6x Genestealers with Scything Talons.
3x Raveners- Scything talons and Rending claws.
2x Carnifex- Venom Cannon, TL Deathspitters, Spine Banks, EC, ES.
1x Carnifex- 2x TL Deathspitters, ES, Spine Banks. (Wanted to drop the spine banks, but it was built that way when I got it, and I've had no luck removing the plate)
I know I'm lacking Synapse at the moment, with only the Warriors for it, and will buy at least one Tyrant when I can. Beyond that though, any suggestions on where to go with it?

For the spine banks: have you tried sanding off the detail or using green stuff to cover it up? Those might be simple solutions.
As the list stands now, I would likely remove the EC (or not have it count in friendly games). With them standing behind the gaunts, there is no reason for them to not have a 4+ cover save.
The tyrant would be a good choice, as would a few 'thropes if you had the money. If you decide to not go with the ,thropes, I would advise in investing in more warriors down the line. Killing 2 sets of 3 warriors is an easy way to quickly bring down a synapsed army.
If you are planning on using the raveners, I would advise grafting on a few devoureres if you can spare them. 6 more shots before coming into combat (with a reroll wounds to make up for the weak strength) is too good of a deal to pass up for the point cost.
Other than that, it looks like you should have fun with the units. Spread them around and see what works for you.
