    As you see, I'm 91 pts short of my goal, and I was wondering whether to throw in another zoan, a few Raveners, or beef up some of the existing models. Any help would be great.

    Just IMHO:

    Drop the feeder tendrils on the Broodlord's retinue. You gain no benefit from them since the BL has it.

    Drop EC off of the other Stealers. Scuttlers are more valuable there.

    I would probably get the third Zoanthrope as well. You are in good shape for Synapse but the extra Warp Blast might help. You really don't have much ranged Anti-Tank otherwise.

    I'd give both 12xgaunts WON. I'd also get another zoan. I like WinnipegDragon's idea of scuttling genes, but then again, I also think you need EC on them.

    You can get it into cover quickly and easily stay out of assault range.

    You can also consider giving hormogaunts some stuff. I know they are expensive already but for example, flesh hooks would be golden. Consider you'll need to charge as fast as you can ignoring cover as much as possible and that would help a lot. Also toxin sacs would make you be able to do some damage to the vehicles as well. But flesh hooks mainly would be golden imo.
