    A few things!

    [HQ]
    I also think that the bone sword and the lash whip on the tyrant is useless unless you want him to go character killers. But your broodlord should to the job, just need to give him implant attack rather than the acid maws if you think you will face many characters. So give the tyrant scything talons to replace the bone swords and the lash whip. It will give you a good synapse support creature.

    [The warriors brood]
    If I understand correctly, you put Venom Cannon and Barbed strangler in a same brood of warriors. You can't do that, it's one Venom Cannon or one Barbed Strangler, not the two. So you gonna need to choose the one you realy need. Personnaly, I think the Venom Cannon should be better on your warrior, since you gonna need strengh to kills those marines...

    [Troops]
    drop the termagaunts without numbers, it will just give more victory points and they will probably not be able to come back in the game once you will be on the other side of the bord because they won't cover the distance. It will give you about 48 extra points.

    I would buy a tyrant guard for 45 points so it will help to keep him alive.

    In addition, because you will see many good save guys, I suggest to turn one of the homargaunts brood into a 8x Genstealers with extended carapace (same point cost 160 pts). Mainly because the rending ability will be your best friends againt those necrons and marines.

    [Heavy support]
    Well, not too much to say here. The zoanthrope is good conventionnal one. The fex seems good too. For spinebanks, I never used it but it's 10 pts for the whole fexs so if you want to go with it, it's up to you. And it give frag grenades so, enjoy

    - AciDRaiN
    Tyranid 2500 pts
    Space marine 750 pts

    You have:

    "
    3 Warriors @ 114
    A) Enhanced Sences, Venom Cannon, Scything talons, Extended Carapace, Leaping
    Enhanced Senses, Devouer, toxin sacs, AG (I), Rending Claws, Extended carapase, Leaping
    C) AG(I),Bio plasma, Scything talons, Rending claws extended carapase, leaping
    "

    This still doesn't work.

    All the warriors in the same brood must have the same biomorphs.

    They can have different weapons.

    Only ONE of them can have a heavy weapon.

    So you cannot give Bioplasma to just one of them. It's all or nothing. And so on.

    The weapons are OK now, but the Biomorphs are not.

    advice given

    Hive Fleet Colossus


    Hive Tyrant @ 162
    winged
    toxin sacs
    toxic miasma
    warp field
    adreanal glads (WS)

    Your Hive Tyrant needs Weapons. Since it looks like your making a a fast CC monster, give it two sets of Scything Talons. Otherwise okay

    Hive Tyrant @ 155
    Extended carapace
    enhanced senses
    lash whip and bone sword
    venom cannon

    Unless your going cheap take out the lash whip/bone sword. It has never worked in what i have seen and there are better things for your poins.

    Warrior Brood @ 122
    A)Deathspitter, Rending claws, toxin sacs, enhanced senses, extended carapace
    Venom Cannon ,scything talons, toxin sacs, enhanced senses, extended carapace
    C)Deathspitter, Rending claws, toxin sacs, enhanced senses, extended carapace

    I would take all Rending on the Warriors. If you face Marines or the like, you will need the Rending more than the one extra attack

    16 Horamgaunts @ 160

    16 Hormagaunts @ 160

    16 Spinegaunts @ 80

    16 Termagaunts @ 96
    Fleshborers

    Its just personal preference but since the smaller gaunts are generally gonna die quickly, might as well only give it spinefists and save points, like for scuttling on your stealers

    8 Genestealers @ 180
    Extended Carapace

    See above

    Zoanthrope @ 65
    Synapse Creatue
    Warp Blast

    Carnifex @ 193
    Crushing Claws
    Scything Talons
    Adreenal Glad (WS)
    Reenforced Chitin
    Extended Carapace
    Tusked

    Honestly it has been statistically worked out that Crushing claws will give you no real benefit on the average. Better to take an extra set of Scything Talons if are making a CC fex. HOWEVER, I have seen through personal experience that a Carnifex without a gun rarely does anything but get shot at, if that.

    Carnifex @ 143
    Enhanced Senses
    Venom Cannon
    Twin-Linked Deathspitters

    I believe you mean one TL deathspitter and not two since you have the Venom Cannon. Also with Carnifexes, 9 times out of 10, if you can afford the points take the extra Wound(reinforced Chitin). A 5 wound beast is nothing to sneeze at

    your first hive tyrant doesnt add up right. i found it at 172. So a cc tyrant with duel talons will add up even more. a good nid force should always have more models, so rethink your HQ list


    i never really like hormaguants for 10pts. i can have 2spinegaunts but i do change between rippers but thats just me!!:tongue:

    Honestly this list looks rather well. I would worry about the small group of Warriors but with Zoenthrope backup Im not sure it will be too much of a problem. My main worry is the Carnifex. Im thinking you didnt have enough other models like gaunts or stuff and needed to fill in the points to make 1500. If this is not the case then slim down the Fex. My personal suggestion(and one that comes based on some experience): You dont need Bonded Exo. T6 works well enough for me, especially against Marines. Also, I would go with a pure shooty fex. With all the other models you have, they should be getting into CC sooner than the Fex. Let them handle the small crunchy bits and focus your fex on the Larger metal bits. Give it Barbed Strangler and Venom Cannon. Take out the Talons, Tusked, Ad(I), Ad(WS), Toxic Miasma, Toxin Sacs and Bonded. That will trim your Fex down alot and suit him better for the role. However ignore this if you have no other models and are just filling points.
