    I think you'll need more than 1 warp blast if you want to be able to destroy tanks.

    agreed. if there is a tank among the enemy there won't be much your swarm can do.

    If you want to add some anti-tank to your swarm; drop without number off of one of your troop choices and give flesh hooks to three of the others. They count as frag grenades in close combat. This will allow you to glance AV10 and ignore initiative reducers when charging units in cover.

    I see some problems with your swarm right away

    - 60 gaunts is more of a party, not a swarm.
    - Lack of anti-tank.
    - Low synapse.

    I would suggest
    - Make one tyrant a CC winged tyrant
    - Some tyranid warriors to help put Synapse over the swarm, preferably CC ones.
    - make them spinegaunts, it gives you an extra 60pts to spend. 240pts if you forgo WN entirely.
    - More Gaunts! 60 is a party, 100 is a swarm. Yes, it is insanity to have to paint so many gaunts, but the more, the merrier and more intimidating.
    Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
