    Ok you have a lot of problems here.

    1 why are there spinefists on your tyrant? get tallons instead

    2 your genestealers are rubbish. 1 blast template and they are very dead. also they lack numbers.Id make them into 1 squad of ten, get extended carapace and a broodlord to go with them.

    3 why do you have 3 carnifexes in a swarm list? It looks like youve made a mismatch between nidzilla and swarm. Drop one of the gun fexs.

    4 WHERES THE SYNAPSE! youve hardly got any! your warriors will be going forward, as will the flyrant, therefore most of your army will be stranded out of synapse, menaing you will waste about 100 gaunts, just giving away kill points

    5 the other armys will slaughter you. The godzilla list can simply beat you to a pulp, the chaos will outshoot and outcombat you, the tau will gun you down before you can get in range, however your fexsmight carry the day. Tanks will also rip you to peices. I surgest you completly change this list. But above all GET SOME SYNAPSE

    Drop the berserker beetle for 3 zoanthropes with just synapse or synapse+psychic scream. Try to get the stealers scuttlers so they can outflank. Otherwise they'll be shot to pieces.

    Ok, you have (as previously posted) a lot wrong here.

    You are making a swarm list so the more numbers the better.

    Take two squads of stealers with nothing on them. Unless you have points to spare at the end.

    Take out all of the quants and just a A LOT OF F'ING spine gaunts. Many magical things happen in numbers

    Keep both the sniperfex's and drop the beetle. Replace him with 3 zoanthropes with synapse and warpblast.

    Flyrant should just have scythingtalons. Spine fists are pointless.

    Give you warriors scything talons, rending claws, wings, and a few close combat upgrades.

    If you have extra points with that get some more warriors for synapse, but make them walk.

    and if you have any more points get a ravener.

    you have a point wasted semi-swarm list.

    I just made a stripped swarm list

    Remember that when swarming it is all about number. the more gaunts and rippers you have to be sacrificed the better, ifyou have 80 spine gaunts out there your opponent won't know what to do with them all. You will destroy all in your path once theyget to close combat. Just use the flyrant and close combat warriors to fly up and quickly destroy the annoying things and the rest follows tehm nice and easy.

    Good luck with your tury!!!

    Genestealers are a little too vulnerable. maybe drop some spinegaunts to get them scuttlers or EC.

    It's your call on the EC. It's an expensive upgrade and if you think you can play it well just keep them behind gaunts. Just remember that when you use a unit to provide mobile cover to another unit, the second unit will essentially fleet at 2D6" take the lowest.

    Scuttling stealers can be effective. Whenever I run my stealers I use scuttlers and flesh hooks. I've only had one player who has managed to deploy in such a way that when they came on they were shot to pieces.

    I personally think your synapse is low. Take 2 more thropes. I'm not a fan of warp blast. It's expensive, short range and only mediocre BS for the focused shot. Although some people use the unfocused blast as MEQ killers.

    if you want to go swarm list, may i surgest you get a broodlord? he acompanies the stealers and then you dont have to worry about being shot as they can outflank straight into combat. Also id buy a unit of hormagaunts or fleshgaunts, also get some more zoans. 1 is just pointless and a free kill point. as a general rule, i think zoans can be one of the mmost resiliant units in the nid list, because any weapons that ignore there saves, will be fired at the Mcs.
