Carnifexes can only be taken as elite choices in lists of 1500 pts or more.
WOW! awesome nidsila list! the only thing i think would be a problem would be holding objectives and taking them becuase the rippers might struggle other than that awesome!
wouldnt you want wings on the cc tyrant instead?
i dont know if there was some errata but according to the codex ripper swarms cannot take or hold objectives or table quarters so maybe some spinegaunts to hold those
Get rid of the 2 Lictors and get 2 squads of 10x Spinegaunts with Without Numbers. These squads will be almost guaranteed to be there at the end of the game and can hold objectives.
Kosmon has this right, you'll need the Gaunts for scoring purposes. Ripper Swarms are mindless so do not count as scoring.
A few things:
-Why does it say 1337 down the bottom? I've added this upto 908, assuming your points are correct.
-Are you taking multiple bio-morphs on your guys? ie, '3 enhanced senses' on one of the fexes? You can't have more than 1 biomorph.
-As already mentioned, 0 scoring units in an army is a bad idea - unless you are content with gunning for draws, get some troops that aren't rippers. Even without the mindless rule, the BGB states swarms can't score anyway.
But really, it's looks pretty tough at 1k.

Good to see a fellow Nidzilla player around here!
Your list looks alright, but you definately need to swap the Rippers and Lictors for bunches of Spinegaunts so you can hold objectives. Otherwise you have no scoring units, and in two out of three game types you won't be able to win.
Your Carnifexes seem odd, you can only put one of each Biomorph on them at a time, so you can't have two or three Enhanced Senses.
The Sniperfex will do a lot better (and be cheaper) if you outfit him with a Barbed Strangler. The twin linked Venom Cannon won't really do much, the Barbed Strangler will let him lay down much more fire.
I would switch your Tyrants up a bit, putting two Scything Talons on the Winged one and the Devourers on the walking one. A Tyrant in CC pretty much needs Winged to be effective, but they are amazing when they are kitted like that. Lash Whip and Bone Sword really suck, so use another pair of Talons.
All in all it's a good start, you just need to tweak it!
