    I need help with 1500 points army for tournament in one week!

    Ok girls and guys, this is gonna be quiet complex. I want to make a 1500 points nids army.

    Priorities
    1. Painted
    2. effective
    3. easy to be fully painted
    4. fun to play

    Miniatures (almost) painted
    Hive Tyrant
    2 tyrant guards
    9 Warriors
    3 Zoans
    40 Termagants
    8 Stealers
    4 Carnifexes

    Further miniatures available
    60 Hormagants
    24 Devilgaunts
    20 Stealers
    1 Tervigon
    12 spore mines
    1 Lictor
    3 Raveners

    Miniatures I still can build
    landing spores(?) as much as you need

    Miniatures I would love to use
    Devilgaunts
    Tervigon (I scratch built one for this tournament ...)

    I have some ideas already but hope for some of yours first! Thank you, help is much appreciated!

    I'll assume they are magnetised and all configurations are available. I'll also give you a DS list that will require Spores, and a normal walk-all-the-way list:
    HQ
    Alpha Warrior with a Pair of Boneswords and Toxin Sacs

    TROOPS
    10 Termagaunts
    Tervigon with Adrenal Glands, Toxin Sacs and Catalyst
    5 Warriors with Deathspitters and Rending Claws on a Landing Spore with Thorn Blast

    ELITES
    3 Zoanthropes
    Lictor

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    Carnifex with two sets of Scything Talons on a Landing Spore with Thorn Blast
    Carnifex with two sets of Scything Talons on a Landing Spore with Thorn Blast
    Carnifex with two sets of Scything Talons on a Landing Spore with Thorn Blast
    That's the DS list. You've got very good anti-horde, and since the Carnifexes will they give the opponent less time to react. The main issue here is the abundance of kill points because of Landing Spores, which there's no mini for so you can use whatever you think you can pass as one.
    Note that I think Trygons are superior to Carnifexes in pretty much any situation, so I'd change them out if you get your hands on them.
    HQ
    Tyrant (Mental Scream/Life Drain) with Bone Sword, Lash whip, Heavy Barbed Strangler

    TROOPS
    8 Genestealers with Rending Claws and Toxin Sacs
    8 Genestealers with Rending Claws and Toxin Sacs
    8 Genestealers with Rending Claws and Toxin Sacs
    17 Termagaunts
    Tervigon with Catalyst, Toxin Sacs and Adrenal Glands

    ELITES
    2 Zoanthropes
    1 Doom of Malan'Tai

    FAST ATTACK
    12 Gargoyles
    12 Gargoyles

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    Tyrannofex with Capsule Cannon, Toxic Thorax Swarm
    I assume devilgaunts means Gargoyles. This army is easier to play IMHO. The Tyrannofex (pretty much just a Carnifex) shoots transports open, and the Tyrant cleans up. Gargoyles provide cover and tie units up, Zoanthropes detroyes anything that comes too close, the Doom helps out against any type of infantry or even MC that could pose a problem. Meanwhile, the genestealers can outflank to tear up some.



    With both lists, you can create Termas with the Tervigon in objective missions, but don't bother to in Annihilation. I've had a Tervigon create 40 Termagaunst all by himself twice, so he should help in that regard. Both lists have anti-tank, anti-horde, and are as balanced and powerful as I could manage with what you had. Of course, tweak anything to your heart's content! Specially consider whatever you know about your meta.

    Venom Cannon, Devourers

    Tervigon

    20 Termagants

    18 Termagants+Devourers, Spore

    8 Stealers

    3x1 Zoanthrope

    3x1 Carnifex
