Welcome to Librarium Online!
First of, hello all! After years of being awol from the warhammer 40k game, I've finally decided to get back into it and settled on the tyranids for my new army, so any thoughts/comments would be nice It's mostly intented for friendly club/mini-tournaments where primary foes will be space marines, daemons and orks, as well as the occasional imperial guard
Oh and thanks ti Alphatwitch, who's main idea I've shamelessly stolen and adapted a bit
es, ec, ts, barbed strangler and venom cannon, 187pts
2x tyrant guards, 90pts
Venom cannon, barbed strangler, es, 148 pts
warpblast, synapse creature. 130pts
Hormagaunts x 15
Adrenal glands (strike before space marines) 165pts
Gaunts x 32 ( 2 broods of 16)
Spinegaunts x 28 (2 broods of 14)
Genestealers x 8
feeder tendrils, 136 points
Lictor, 80 pts
Grand total of 1464 pts, which leaves 131 points, but am a bit undecided on what to get? Considering a lictor for support in close combat, but also either adding another carnifex of some sort, or perhaps a warrior brood (most likely) It's a very shooty army where I intend the walking tyrant to form the centre, put up a zoanthrope on each flank behind some gaunts (or should they move together?) and the move forward en masse, with the gaunts providing cover saves for the geenies and the homies. The flying tyrant will either deploy on a flank in some cover or deep strike, depending on setup and opponent and the harrass troops and light tanks and things like that. Thoughts and comments welcome

hmmz, lictor not a bad idear, neither would taking that elite carnifex thing (certain amt of pts makes it leet if i remember correctly, been a while)
I'm really a fan of lictors. They freak people out and make them set up differently than they normally would have. Plus they pop non landraider tanks pretty easily.
I'd be pretty leery of fielding only 10 hormagaunts, they are really easy to kill and you need a decent number to acutally get into combat. I'd consider going up to 15 or 20 if you can.
Note: 10 Hormagaunts with adrenal glands are acutally only 110 points
*puts on non-retard hat* indeed it is. Put in a lictor and beefed up the hormies to 15. Looking a bit at giving the carni bonded exo for added protection against massed fire
