    You could remove the Tyrannofex. There are only 3 HS choices possible so that solves the problem. And I don't now if you have played with 2 Tyrannofex. For me it has never done a thing. A trygon is much better.

    Your list appears to be a paradox. It's a foot list, yet it doesn't have enough firepower, is not very resilient, and does not present enough threats to saturate the enemy. It's a reserves list, yet it's only got 4 threats at most. 2 of those threats, the flyrants are way too easy to drop unless they land far away in cover. Half + half = fail. You need to either focus mainly on a foot list with a few reserves or a reserves list with a few foot elements.

    Fire power - 2 squads of 2 hive guards + 1 t-fex isn't really a lot of firepower at all. I would fill up that last elite slot with another unit of hive guards or, in the case of a primarily reserve army, zoans in a spore.

    Resiliency - one reason why a walkrant+guard list is so durable is because the tyrant would get cover from the gant screen and the tervigons cover from the tyrant. Here it would be hard to get cover for the tervigons, even if you hide both tervies behind the t-fex. And we all know how fragile flyrants are.

    Target saturation (or what I refer as "Maximum overload") - one of the reasons why nids are so dangerous is because they can apply a lot of pressure on the enemy by posing a lot of threats all at once. Here it isn't the case. Trygon and carnie will probably start off in reserve so that's 2 less threats the enemy has to worry about until turns 2-3. If the flyrants start off on the board, they will be toast if the opposing general has any experience with tyranids at all. If they start off the board, then that's another 2 less threats for the opponent to worry about. Experienced players will ignore the t-fex and go after the tervigons and hive guards, and it isn't very hard to get rid of 4 hive guards and thusly, your main source of AT. The target saturation in this army just isn't very high as it is quite easy to pick out who needs to be killed first.

    Hmm I see you speak the truth J2, this was just a list I put together to be fun but even so it needs to be semi-competitive, so ill take those pointers into mind when I change it around a bit.
