Okay, I have just recently returned to the Warhammer world and am slightly confused in what to buy for my tyranid army. So far I have purchased the Codex and a squad of Gargoyles, but I am looking to make a 1000 points army list! Can someone help me with this?
I don't like the idea of a swarm, maybe more of the bigger models in this army, thanks for any help.
Before buying models, create a list first. Then we can help critique it. If you like monstrous, consider 1 tyrant, 1-2 carnifexes (to be converted to tervigons), termagants, hive guards and 1-2 trygons. Those are some of the better nid units.
Record: Win - Loss - Draw: Hive Fleet Pandora (New) 32-6-6 Space Wolf 7th Co. 52-11-6
Blood Angels 12-4-2 Daemonhunters 20-8-3
Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2
Lets see here then:
HQ Total: 190 Points
Hive Guard Brood (3x Models)
Tyranid Warrior Brood (3x Models)
Termagant Brood (12x Models)
Tervigon, for Termagating
Troops Total: 235 Points
Garygoyle Brood (10x Models)
Fast Attack Total: 60 Points
This leaves me with 65 points to spend on upgrades for something, what to get? Is this competitive at 1000 points?

Also if you are not sold on the Hive Tyrant I've found that the Tyranid Prime works very well in 1k battles. Sticking him with the warrior sqaud (upping their BS) is really nice.
Also because you have the VC and the Prime, you can play with the wound allocation a bit. Prime has a very in-expensive Regeneration which I also take for him.
That would free up around 80-90 points, you could add another squad or add models to your existing squads.
[e] Also, you should seriously consider adding at least one of the Tervigon's psychic powers to your list.
