First of all, you should read the posting rules, army lists go in the army list section.
Other than that, its common practice to structure army lists in an easy to read format, like this

Tyrant Xpts
upgrade upgrade

X Genestealers Xpts
upgrade upgrade

Ravener Xpts

Its just so much easier that way :)
Now then, lets look at your list:

Your second unit of warriors, they have to have 2 weapon symbiotes, personally I would give them rending claws in addition to their scything talons, and if you have the points, throw in leaping.

Judging from the point costs of your carnifexes, they have venom cannons and barbed stranglers, you really should write that.

Your genestealers, both retinue and troop choice, are quite expensive. I've found that genestealers really dont need scything talons in fact they're usually overkill and make the stealers way too expensive.

Since you have 4 synape units in the HQ/Elite sections, I think its overkill to give the zoanthropes synapse, either drop the power or change it to psychic scream.

Since you have a vacant troop slot, you might want to consider splitting the hormagaunts up into 3 units, it will give you an additional scoring unit and force the enmy to split his fire, not to mention the fact that more units means better odds on getting good fleet of claw rolls.

The list looks pretty solid, the carnifexes and zoanthropes take down any armour, especially dreads, and then the gaunts, lead by the Tyrant, swarm the enemy with the genestealers mopping up any resistance. Meanwhile, the Broodlord and raveners keep the enemy busy by drawing fire and engaging him in CC.

I would also consider trying a winged hive with a 2x twin linked devourer set up. This provides the benefit of a ranged attack with an effective threat radius of 30� and can be utilized on the charge. On top of that it provides 12, strength 5 shots with re-rolls to hit and to wound; that is statistically more lethal than a full fire warrior squad. This all comes at the cost of two close combat attacks, sounds worth it to me.

Just my thoughts
Ok so the new list is
