    First ever Tournament 1500 points: need advice

    Hello, I am prepping an army list for a tournament in October. Troops have to be at least 400 points of the total and you cannot have more than 2 of the same unit outside of the troops FOC (ie. you can have 4 squads of warriors but only 2 squad of Hivegaurd). I am willing to buy more models if I need them, however I would like to stick to what I have as much as possible. This is what I own right now

    1 Flyrant (multiple weapon options)
    1 Tyranid Prime (haven't glued arms yet so can do any weapon layout)

    6 Hiveguard
    2 Zoanthropes
    1 Spore Pod

    1 Tervigon
    18 Termagaunts
    32 Hormagaunts
    5 Warriors with rending claws, 4 with deathspitters, 1 with Barbed strangler

    20 Gargoyles

    2 Trygons

    As of right now I am planning on framing the army around 2 squads of 3 Hive Guard, either two medium squads of Hormagaunts or one big squad, my Zoanthropes (can't decide if I should have them in the pod or not) and the Trygons.

    Haven't written up a list yet but would like to hear what people have to say.
    Thanks for the feedback!

    Hive Fleet Barbarossa: 1700 points
    Lizardmen: 1500 points

    I think you should rather go like this:
    == HQ ==
    Tyranid Prime (1) - Deathspitter, Pair Of Boneswords, Toxin Sacs = 105 pts.
    -Spitter for making him shoot till he's in CC as He doesn't really need that re-roll to 1's

    == Elites ==
    Hive Guard Brood (3) = 150 pts.
    -no brainer
    Hive Guard Brood (3) = 150 pts.
    -no comment
    Zoanthrope Brood (160 pts.)
    Zoanthrope (2) = 120 pts.
    Mycetic Spore (1) = 40 pts.
    -Zoans M_U_S_T have a pod and 3 is a bit overkill

    == Troops ==
    Tervigon (1) - Cluaster Spines, AG, Toxin Sacs, Cat = 195 pts.
    Terma need both AG and TS!
    Termagant Brood (16) - Fleshborer = 80 pts.
    nothing special
    Hormagaunt Brood (16) - Toxin Sacs = 128 pts.
    2 units of 16 poisoned are mean!
    Hormagaunt Brood (16) - Toxin Sacs = 128 pts.
    2 units of 16 poisoned are mean!


    == Heavy Support ==
    Trygon (1) - Instinctive Behaviour - Feed = 200 pts.
    doesn't really need that AG- save the points
    Trygon (1) - Instinctive Behaviour - Feed = 200 pts.
    doesn't really need that AG- save the points

    == Total ==
    1496 pts.
