Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am looking for help building a competetive list with the models i have for my first ever tournament this weekend at my local store (leicester UK). Its a doubles tournament with 800 points each using the standard FOG chart.
I have no partner so will be paired with someone on the day therefore do not know what race i'll be allied with. Also I am fairly new to nids with only a handful of friendly 1k games under my belt.
My models are:
1 hive tyrant with scything talons and heavy venom cannon
1 tyrant guard(using broodlord model)
1 Prime with boneswords and deathspitter or rending claws and death spitter
8 warriors all with scything talons and death spitters or 2 with barbed stranglers
(any biomorph upgrade)
8 genestealers and broodlord or 8 ymargls
5 ripper bases
1 mycetic spore
2 CC carnifex's
A couple of ideas i was comtemplating was 5 warriors with toxin sacs in the myctic spore leaving the 3 remaing with the prime? Possible tunneling rippers?
Ive not used ymargls yet but i feel they could be great in the right situation, but means giving up the genestealer troop slot and the brood lord.
Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Uhm, this should go into the Army List section and maybe the Nid list builder but ill see what I can do here.
The first issue is you have NO anti-tank. You will get pretty hammered if you dont fix this. You also have NO gaunts! this is very surprising, they are the basics of any good Nid list.
Using only those models it will be nigh impossible to make a decent list but ill try for you.
Hive Tyrant, brainleech devourers
20x Hormagaunts w/ Toxin sacs
8x Genestealers w/ Broodlord
Tyrannofex, cluster spines, rupture cannon, desiccator larvae
Total: 1000 pts
This is the best list I can come up with with using SOME of your units and without having to buy to many more. Use a carnifex as a Tyrannofex.
Thanks for your help. I know i have essential units missing as i have been building my army steadilly buying my favorite models first. Unfortunately i neither have the time nor money to buy and paint extra units before the weekend.
I realise a "good" list is hard to build from what i have i was just hoping to see what would be the best to take from what i have. I genrally dislike proxying units also :/

Ha im the same dont worry.
It really comes down to what you ally brings. If he can bring loads of anti-tank your pretty set, but just play with whatever you find most fun.
