    Looks pretty good, I love the Blastfexes.

    This should do pretty darn well, and be a blast to play with the randomness of the scatter die.

    I think that it would help a lot if you would beef up the Tyrants and Fexes defenses by removing the Warriors. If they stick around longer they can put out more damage, and with EC and such they can get around Missile Launchers and Battle cannons, but that is a personal choice.

    Any list with any sort of tank in it would eat this list alive. You have absolutley nothng to deal with vehicles unless someone is dumb enough to park one next to your monstrous creatures.

    Deathspitters are a waste on fexes as they will almost always miss and are max Strength 6. Go with sniper Fexes (venom cannon, barbed strangler.) Give your tyrants Warp Field and make one winged. Get rid of one carnifex and put in some zoanthropes with synapse and warp blast. Spinefists on anything but gaunts is also terrible. Get rid of the spinefists on the warriors and give the ST or devourers. You will probably have to redo the list but it will help.

    Your list is built around the hopes your opponent will play only infantry, and that just isnt going to ever be the case. You need stuff to deal with vehicles and other monstrous creatures meaning you will need High str shots or massed shots.

    My play experience is limited but there are a couple things bout your list. One is the spinefists on the warriors. According to codex unless its a monstrous creature a tyranid can only fire one ranged weapon symbiote per turn. I think you know this and you took the spinefists as the cheapest alternative. With what you spent on the warriors you could take a pair of zoanthropes with synapse and warp blast to spread out your synapse and still give you blast templates to play with. Or even some biovores with bio-acid mines either of which can ap power armor. You don't have anything to take out armor at range but with seven monstrous creatures I'm sure you can get a couple into cc with enemy tanks. All in all it seems like a pretty decent list unlike most zilla lists you didnt neglect your troops. Six units of gaunts should do very well for objectives and the like. I give it a thumbs up but like I said I'm not the most experienced player.
