Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello all, first thanks for reading this, any help or recommendation is highly appricated. My Overall Tatic is to Outflank the genestealers and brood lord the other genestealers fleet towards cover., March the Warriors with the Gaunts towards the enemy firing away, while the 2 Fexes provide distraction and disatrous results for the enemys vehicles. Beyond that I cant say I would do anything different, Im not very good at tatics and this will be my second Tyranid battle. Without wasting any more of your time .
HQ = 217
6- Genestealers, Extended carapace and scything talons
6 Warriors, 4 spitters and 2 Barbed stranglers - 136
Genestalers = 200
10 genestalers extended carapace
Termagaunt = 144
Carnifex = 152

Post any recommendations or any thoughts about this. Im willing to change most things from the list. Any help is grealy appricated

I would change your 2 carnifexes to gunfexes (barbed strangler, venom cannon and enhanced senses) to give you some ranged anti tank firepower.
Give the Broodlord extended carapace and toxin sacs, so he can survive longer and dish out more damage in close combat.
Warriors need to have 2 weapons each so give them each a set of scything talons. You are also only allowed 1 barbed strangler or venom cannon per brood, so either drop a barbed strangler or split your warriors into 2 separate units.
Make sure you give your genestealers feeder tendrils. It's very cheap and allows you to reroll failed to hit rolls.
I'm personally not a fan of the Scything Talons on the Genestealers, makes them far too expensive in my book. Granted, I normally give them scuttlers but still.
If you're planning to do feeder tendrils, you certainly don't need the Scytals. I would drop them anyway.
Hold up, I have to disagree with replacing Scything Talons with Feeder Tendrils. I mean, sure, drop the Talons but don't give the brood Feeder Tendrils. If you're keeping the Brood Lord within the unit, just give him the Feeder Tendrils for the same effect, just at half the price. Oh wait, you already have . I agree with dropping the Talons for Flesh Hooks though as it frees up 18 pts.
I personally don't see the point of gunfexes. With that 18 pts you just freed up, you can take a Winged Tyrant with two scything talons and toxin sacs over the 127 carnifex and he'll be better at Anti Tank then the gunfex. Right now though I'm trying to make sense of your list ^^
