Welcome to Librarium Online!
Was thinking up a list that involves 3 heavy fexes geared up as
2x scything, regenerate, reinforced chitin, Mace tail - 151 pts. 3 of these guys, and outflanking stealers.
Basically the fexes run behind cover towards enemy lines, with regenerate to heal up wounds they take along the way there, and stealers come in from behind, sides. So if the enemy tries to run they run into stealers, run from stealers they run into fexes. and basically just surround the enemy. Add in broodlord and oldschool infiltrate to tie up heavy weaps on turn 1/2 so they have touble wounding the fexes. What do u guys think? Possibly in games of 1000pt or 1500pt.
I know not what weapons World War 3 will be fought with. All I know is that World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.
You kinda need an HQ... and also Regenerate is not too useful, it's a 1/6th chance to regain a wound, so on average you MIGHT get one wound back in the life of the carnifex.

1) Your troop count is going to be really low. Stealers are just too expensive. In a 1000 pts I think you'll only be able to throw in around 30 stealers in a list (assuming a ~100 pts for the broodlord and near naked stealers). At least 5 of those have to go to the broodlord's retinue. Leaving you with two squads of 12 or so as scoring units. It's possible to make this work, but very difficult.
2) Regenerate isn't that good. In the first 5 turns you'll make at most 15 regen rolls of which you'll only regen between 2-3 wounds between all fexes (statistically speaking). For those 90 pts speant on the fexes you could get 3-5 more stealers.
This list could be fun but I don't think it'll be competive.

If you cheapen up your Fexes, I think it could be doable. I would play mine with glands for WS, miasma, 2x scyths, and maybe tusked/chiten coming in between 113 and 138.
Then you play 3 broods of stealers in 1000 with a brood lord plus retinue
List would looks like this at 1000
Brood Lord--Fleshhooks, Feeder Tendrils, Toxin Sacs, 86 plus 6 stealers--182
Stealers--3x8 with scuttlers--456
Fexes--2 with tusks, all with WS, Miasma, and scyths--359
When you move up to 1500 I would add 2 lictors, and either 2 more stealer squads, or 1 stealer squad and another fex with the rest of the points going into fex upgrades (probably chiten).
Lictors will help with tendrils and phermone trail as you are going to make a lot of reserve rolls. Plus it will allow you to get to the middle of the table quickly. Table quarter games could be your downfall, but other games it could work, though the list really is just walk and scratch and doesn't seem like it would to tactically enjoyable to play as every game would be the same.
