From what I thought, Tyranids were a Horde Army but this doesnt seem much like one...I think it needs some tuning to counter my friends that play Tau, CSM, and SM but it looks like a good list to me. Please help me tweak this!

Nice list, very nice list. The ONLY thing I can see that can be improved upon is maybe finding some points for a brood of zornthrope in a pod, besides from that I love that list
Thanks! As far as the Zornthropes go...I put them in my 1500 pt army im making atm but the only way I could fit them in the 1250 pt is to take the Hive Gaurds away and repace them with 2 zorns and a spore and that puts me at 1250 on the DOT!
Is it worth it?
Not worth it. You have 3MC which can pop ARM 14 if need be. Those 10pts will be very well spend with Adrenal glands on that Hive Tyrant or Trygon Prime.
I don't see very much wrong with your list at all to be totally honest, and for a first list that looks just crazy awesome well done!
I have 1 question, is your flyrant useing 1x scything talons, w/bonesword laship since those are his base, or 2x scything talons, if the second is the case go with the bonesword if not, he looks great anyway was just wondering if he had it or not,
as for maybe a change, 2 MC's not counting your hq is huge in a lowish end game, and if you wanted you could take off 2 stealers, the prime off your trygon,
and add a broodlord to your stealersquad. I'd say hes definately worth it,
6T,A,W,S deep striking is already hard to handle, and you could also give your warriors dual boneswords to make them nasty IC and everything else big/small killers when they hit CC, boneswords are optional since they do cost, you could always go rending talons with 15 points to spare
which would put you at 1250 total
Just a few idea's that I like and seem to work for me, other than that it looks awesome

After looking at what the Trygon Prime does....I just can NOT bring myself to take the normal one...I mean not only does he get Bio-electric pulse which is a 12" assualt 6 but he gets the Containment Spines which is a 18" Assault 12 which just sounds amazing!
As far as the 2x Scything Talons or the Bonesword with whip...I have the 2x Talons to make sure he doesnt miss but after reading Bonesword I just may just take that. As I dont have the units to test this, rerolling ALL misses just sounded good ><
I was thinking about getting rid of 1 of the Hive Gaurd which would give me 60 points (50 from the hive Gaurd and 10 I had left over) allowing me to add the broodlord. giving me 10 genestealers and 1 broodlord. If I just turn one of the genestealers into a broodlord then that would leave me with 14 points with nothing to really get.
So...Take out a Hive Gaurd for a Broodlord?
My advice; Drop the genestelaler squad to 8 with a broodlord, with that you should be able to keep that hive guard
Well I tried to work it out and the with getting rid of 2x Genestealers in 2 points short....I cant seem to work the points. im kind of mad I cant find the points for 2x Zoanthrope with spore...They are SO amazing...ugh...Can anyone help me tweak this a bit more...><
I'll try working with the numbers as I like the list, and doing something very close to it^^
beside that, great work! sound like a great list
Do you think that I may not have enough Troops>? I mean all I really have for a "shield" is my Hormagaunts...with them gone it might be hard to get/hold objectives...
What do you all think?
