Mantis - it seems you are using bio morphs on the basic profiles given in the front of the book. This is incorrect, and illegal.
When you are adding morphs such as the toxin sacs etc, you must use the profiles given in the back of the book.
And a wytch cult beats a tyranid swarm in CC hands down.
Against wyches, any gaunt hordes fight as if they were IG, just with a worse save and eventually more points per model.
Due to their invulnerable saves, rending claws and monstrous creatures aren't nearly as effective against them as against other armies, and wych weapons negate both high WS and scything talons.
Their succubi can easily kill any big bugs with the new assault rules.
I really see no way to beat a well played wych cult with tyranids, except eventually due to lucky biovore shots.
IIRC DSpitter and SFist are good to deal with Wyches at range, before they're in CC. Their Dodge only works in CC AFAIK, so if You can shoot them from way off... Splattered Wyches for the reclamation pools!
But not CC, unless You've inflicted heavy casualties with shooting.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
