    2500 Point list. Mainly against Orks and BT's

    == HQ ==
    Swarmlord Brood (340 pts.)
    Swarmlord (1) = 280 pts.
    Tyrant Guard (1) - Scything Talons = 60 pts.
    Hive Tyrant (1) - Scything Talons, Scything Talons, Wings, Psychic Scream, Leech Essence, Old Adversary = 255 pts.


    == Elites ==
    Hive Guard Brood (3) = 150 pts.
    Zoanthrope (1) = 60 pts.
    Zoanthrope (1) = 60 pts.


    == Troops ==
    Broodlord Brood (201 pts.)
    Broodlord (1) - Implant Attack = 75 pts.
    Genestealer (9) = 126 pts.
    Hormagaunt Brood (2 - Toxin Sacs = 224 pts.
    Genestealer Brood (10) = 140 pts.
    Hormagaunt Brood (2 - Toxin Sacs = 224 pts.
    Tervigon (1) - Stinger Salvo = 160 pts.
    Termagant Brood (29) - Devourer = 290 pts.


    == Fast Attack ==
    Gargoyle Brood (25) = 150 pts.


    == Heavy Support ==
    Trygon Prime (1) - Containment Spines, Trygon Prime Upgrade, Synapse Creature, Shadow In The Warp = 240 pts.


    == Total ==
    2494 pts.

    From what I can tell, this should cover my bases of enough anti-tank to take out a LR and a predator, or an ork trukk (That's all the tanks the guy I usually play has)

    The rest is just personal preference or what has worked well in the past for me. Is this list any good?

    The list is just fine. I like the non-Tervigon orientation. Just a few things.
    - The Winged Tyrant should always be equipped with at least one set of twin linked Devourers with Brainleech Worms, preferably two. His psychic powers should also be Paroxysm and Leech Essence.
    - At this points level you should really try fit in two Tyrant Guard for your Swarmy.
    - You should reduce your Gargoyle numbers to 20, and equip them with AG/TS.
    - One Trygon is dead. It's either two or none. To replace it, I'd recommend either a Tyrannofex (Acid Spray or Rupture Cannon) or a Carnifex in a Spore with 2x TL Devs.
    - I don't want to be cliche, but your Tervigon load out is really a missed opportunity. Even if you don't give her AG and/or TS, she has to have Catalyst. Feel No Pain on any unit for 15 points is too good an opportunity to dismiss. It is this that will make your devilgaunts really powerful.
    - I don't know about the Broodlord. Perhaps just making him a normal Genestealer and using his points to give both broods Toxin Sacs would work better (trust me, it really does).
    - Really, those Devilgants are using up a lot of your points. However I know from experience that 30 of them just pound everything.

    All of these are just suggestions. But please do consider. Especially the points about the Genestealers and the Tervigon.

    But thanks for the awesome advice Vrrmik (I spelt it without looking ;) ) Further criticism on these lists would be greatly appreciated...

    Looks just fine. Only a few things I would change.

    In your 2500 list, the Zoeys should be combined into one spore and the Hive Guard split into 2x2, for more coverage of anti-tank/armour. I'd also consider splitting your Hormagaunt brood into 2x15. 30 is difficult to manoeuvre and is a huge target for anything anti-infantry. Having two smaller squads gives the opponent more targets to choose from however it means he'll have to distribute his shots instead of clumping them.

    Other than that, it looks good!

    EDIT: I see you are having some emoticon troubles with your list posting

    This can be fixed. When writing your post, click on 'Go Advanced' and then under the post and spaces for writing in tags for the post there should be a heading named Miscellaneous Options, or the like. There is a box there which says 'Disable Emoticons' which is really handy for writing up army lists. Hope that helps a lot!
