    Tyranid 1500 casual army

    Before I begin, let me just say that I only have 4 of my genestealers, 10 termagaunts and my spore mines at the moment, and this is just a plan. I am asking for suggestions to improve this "plan". Also I have divided up my army into 3 500 point sections or "waves" and each wave is an expansion of my army. Without further ado my army list:

    Wave Alpha

    Warrior Squad Alpha
    3 Warriors
    + Scything Talons x4
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Barbed Strangler x1

    + Leaping x1( on the warrior without a gun)
    Total = 100 pts

    Troops

    Genestealer Squad Alpha

    Wave Alpha

    HQ

    Warrior Squad Alpha
    3 Warriors
    + Scything Talons x4
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Barbed Strangler x1
    + Extended Carapace x3
    + Leaping x1( on the warrior without a gun)
    Total = 100 pts
    Illegal. Only one venom cannon or barbed strangler allowed per brood. All warriors have to take same biomorphs.

    Troops

    Genestealer Squad Alpha
    10 Genestealers
    + Rending Claws x20
    Total = 160
    8 Genestealers with extended carapace will live longer than 10 Genestealers without against small arms fire (which they see a lot of!!), and costs the same points.

    Termagaunt Squad Alpha
    10 Termagaunts
    + Fleshborer x10
    + Without Number x10
    Total = 90
    Without Number is a waste of points. The gaunts that respawn are generally useless and just offer more victory points to your opponent.

    Termagaunt Squad Omega
    8 Termagaunts
    + Fleshborer x8
    + Without Number x8
    Total = 72
    Same as above.

    Hormagaunt Squad Alpha
    8 Hormagaunts
    + Scything Talons x 8
    Total = 80
    Good.

    Wave Alpha Total = 502 pts

    Wave Beta

    HQ

    Alpha Hive Leader
    1 Hive Tyrant
    + Warp Blast x1
    + Lash Whip & Bonesword x1
    + Scything Talons x1
    + Toxin Sacs x1
    + Extended Carapace x1
    Total = 155
    If he is CC, give him wings, he will need them. This will also mean replacing extended carapace for warp field meaning no warp blast. I would recommend 2 sets of scything talons for a CC tyrant instead of the LW+BS

    Troops

    Genestealer Squad Omega
    10 Genestealers
    + Rending Claws x20
    Total = 160
    Needs extended carapace.

    Elites

    Warrior Squad Beta
    3 Warriors
    + Scything Talons x4
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Barbed Strangler x1
    + Flesh Hooks x1( on the warrior without a gun)
    Total = 85 pts
    Illegal. As said above, all warriors in a brood need to have same biomorphs.

    Warrior Squad Gamma
    3 Warriors
    + Scything Talons x4
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Barbed Strangler x1
    + Extended Carapace x3
    + Leaping x1( on the warrior without a gun)
    Total = 100 pts
    Illegal. Same as above.

    Wave Beta Total = 500 pts

    Wave Gamma

    Elites

    Warrior Squad Omega
    3 Warriors
    + Scything talons x4
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Barbed Strangler x1
    + Extended Carapace x3
    + Leaping x1( on the warrior without a gun)
    Total = 100 pts
    Illegal still.

    Heavy Support

    Carnifex Alpha
    1 Carnifex
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Scything Talons x1
    + Toxin Sacs x1
    + Tail Weapon - Mace x1
    Total = 139
    It is generally accepted that upgrading a carnifex with CC and ranged weapons/biomorphs is wasting points. Consider making this guy all shooting or all CC (Personally, I don't think a CC carnifex is effective at all.)

    Carnifex Beta
    1 Carnifex
    + Venom Cannon x1
    + Scything Talons x1
    + Toxin Sacs x1
    Total = 134
    Same as above.

    Zoanthrope Alpha
    1 Zoanthrope
    + Synapse Creature
    + Warp Blast
    Total = 65
    Good. You may want more, considering Zoanthropes have an unreliable Ballistic Skill.

    Fast Attack

    Spore Mine Cluster Alpha
    2 Frag Mines
    Total 16

    Spore Mine Cluster Beta
    2 Toxin Mines
    Total = 20

    Spore Mine Cluster Omega
    2 Bio-Acid Mines
    Total = 24
    I recommend using all spore mine cluster points elsewhere. They are unreliable and ineffective, usually never killing their points.

    Wave Gamma Total = 498 pts

    Total Army Cost = 1500 pts

    Good luck with your list!
