Competitive - The basic idea is that the army runs foward in a pincer type movement, shooting and assaulting the enemy when the chance appears. The Deep striking units will deepsrike behind or into the enemy, herding them into the centre of the table. From there the bulk of the army that is in the pincer movement closes in on the remainder of the army in the center and fineshes them off.

Freindly - Just run twards the enemy and play around. Have Fun is the main tactic here!

Thanks for any tips or changes!

personally i would grab a tervigon and ditch your termaguants for more stealers. you gaunts will always be cannon fodder and blanket screens, so spawning them for other asualting units makes sense to me anyway.
you also lack firepower. alot of it, i would suggest another hive guard squad .
thanks

Two Zoanthropes, Two Hive Guard, One Mawloc and One Trygon in my opinion is more then enough anti tank...

The thing is that I need to drop something to have more genestealers, another Tervigon and another Hive Guard squad. So what do you think I should drop?

hmm, i don't trust the mawloc because it scatters and it can't go into tight formations if they are gun liners and the trygon can't DS ontop of enemies so the mawloc isn;'t that good against tanks is someone has a few squads of fodder between you and the tank. zoanthropes don't have good range and are instant gibbed now. Personally, i think your onyl solid anti-tank choice is the hive guard. Plus your tyrant if it had wings. But since your mawloc and trygon can't assualt on the DS turn, i don't rate them high. But they are good distractions, albiet expensive ones too. Against mech, especially guard, you may find it hard to crap open those chimeras full of melta and plasma spam before it's too late. There is also the risk of running in grey hunters with thunder hammers or thunder hammers in general that can't degrade your MCs.
hope i am being helpful and it you want me to come up with examples when i forget don't hesitate to ask!
thanks

i don't think ravenors are worth their points. have you considered spore clusters to disrupt enemy deployment and spread them out abit?

I don't quite understand how you've organised your warriors, could you please clarify that a bit?
I've never been a fan of Raveners myself, I'd probably cut them for wings for the Tyrant, because those Gargoyles will need some Synapse with them. The Gargoyles can give the Tyrant plenty of cover to keep him alive. The Zoanthropes can give your horde Synapse, and will give them a reason to try to bring those down. If you also have an Alpha Warrior (I think you do) then you should have enough coverage.

Call me crazy but I've never seen a gargoyle sized to be 50% of a hive tyrant. You don't count the air beneath the flying model as part of its size after all.

Your warriors are illegal there.
It specifically says ONE Warrior in the brood may exchange its devourer for:
So unless you have 2 squads of 3, then its illegal.
Not to mention also that your points in them are a bit low.
So definitely fix your warriors, but everything else looks good.

Trygon Prime provides Synapse. I do have an Alpa warrior. I did not notice that one had to change the whole brood for the same configuration. I will fix that now.
