Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm stuck on what to get next for balnced Tyranid Army and I was wondering if anyone could help me prioritise which units to get next. I have:
1 Hive Tyrant
Note that this isn't my army list and is just the units I have. Help would be appreciated!
I would sell the biovore if possible, most people don't find much use in them, get another box of gaunts and another box of genestealers to run in your troop section. Then perhaps some Raveners or gargoyles whichever you like best and then another fex. IMO.

Protectorate of Menoth: Grand Exemplar Kreoss
I can't tell details about the rest of your swarm. Such as is the Hive tyrant winged. A winged Hive tyrant with warpfield two pairs of scything talons, toxin sacs, adrenal glands and an implant attack is a serious ass-whooper.
You should expand that Zoanthrope brood. Use three and give them all warpblast. As a second power synapse creature is usually good. Psychic scream also kicks ass.
I'd say go with more Gaunts with some more Synapse support to keep them in line. If you're going for a more traditional Swarm with lots of Gaunts and plenty of bigger critters to support, then IMO this will be your best bet. Definitely get more Zoans, since one by itself isn't very useful and they also provide Synapse.
If you plan to run Raveners in your army, it's best to include three in separate squads so they can support your Gaunts in three different places. As for Biovores, I've never used them so I can't tell you whether to drop it or not.
Good start so far, just beef up the numbers of some of the units that you already have and you'll do fine. IMO if you're going to bother with some of the more risky Tyranid choices, (Raveners, Lictors, etc.) you're best off taking at least three so they have a better chance at doing something good.
Lone Wolves (Space Wolves) - 2092 pts
Hive Fleet Basilisk (Tyranids) - 1767 pts
Chaos Fleet - 900 pts
One, preferably two, more battleforces.
One or two more zoanthropes.
Remember that the broodlord HAS to take a retinue, so if you use him, you cannot use your genestealers in your troops since the broodlord has to take a minimum of five.
Fielding a single ravener won't help you much. It's generally better to field three groups of one for a pretty decent effect (and, of course, the occaisional wasting of an entire squad's firepower at a non-character two-would model).
Oh, and if (when) you get another battleforce, equip some of the gaunts (or all of them) with spinefists to make spinegaunts.

Thanks everyone for helping. I'm thinking of getting a zoanthrope, more gaunts,and a few raveners. Should I get biovores?
