it is very small compared to most peoples Nid lists, but it got a lot of punch. i'll post my srats later with this army, as well as cool names when i can come up with them.suggestions are always welomed with me.
Alright your HT probally don't need bone swords unless you want them to look cool otherwise not that great. You should also deffinatly get a flying HT as these guys are really nasty and probally the best config is the devil tyrant (2 TL dev, TS, & ES) these guys can pump out 12 str 5 shots that reroll to hit and miss at a nice 18" range and with wings will be highly mobile firing base. The second HT probally should have guns on it and the most popular are VC and BS or VC and TL dev.
If your warriors are going to be ranged don't put on AG(WS&I) as those are for CC thus wasted on them as they probally won't go into CC unless they have to. You probally don't need 3 lictors and IMO at most will only need 2 though that is up to you.
Raveners should ALWAYS have rending claws as the +1 attack isn't that great against almost any army as rending is superior plus it is only 2 more points. Also never have all your raveners in one sqaud as they are to fragile thus have them fill up your entier FA slot with min numbers in each slot so they have an easier time surviving.
The feeder tedrils are worthless on genestealers as they can already hit almost all oppenents on 3+ anyways and the ones they can't you can't really even use it against (MC). Also TS are probally too expensive and genestealers relly on rending not wounds really. So you should probally give them EC as they need that 4+ save and if you have the points scuttlers.
Termagaunts with WoN is pointless as they returning brood probally won't even make back into combat and is way to expensive. If you take WoN on them you could get 8 more termagaunts which is a whole lot better IMO. The hormagaunts are kinda expensive and I usually at most only put two biomorphs on them and that is AG(WS&I) though others like AG(I) and TS more its more of preference still at 14pts a model they almost cost as much as a SM so keep it a little lower.
You should deffinatly put on leaping on these guys as they become a whole lot more of a nusiance or actual danger to some oppenents.
Unfortunate nowadays CC fexs are completly worthless espically if they are as expensive as yours is though it is a common mistake. You should instead go for the much better and cheaper (most of the time) gunfex (VC, BS, & ES) as really nowadays range is the only effective way to use these guys now. Also another good fex is the dakka fex (2 TL dev & ES) and if you really want a CC fex then go for a cheaper one in the neighborhood of 119pts which is I think (2 ST, AG(WS&I), and toxic maisma) a lot cheaper and still quite effective though you could throw on probally reinforced chitin though if you want him in elite then take off the AG(I).
Well I see now that you were going for a physic choir or I pressume thou the lack of synapse on these guys worries me since they can be fairly easily insta killed by lascannons so you probally should keep your warriors nearby them so they can't be instakilled.
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

just to let you know, trygon DS from the ground anywhere on the field W/O scatter dice and can assault on that same turn. it also allows one guant squad to DS With him as well as allowing them to asault as well. just a little reason why i made the homries so expensive.
Trygon is either enormous or gigantic creature as well.
thanks for the tips on all the other guys though!
like i said, im new so i will probably redefine this army more and more and later post them.
