So yeah you can guess the tactics up the gut with Carnifex in front shielding the others while the Biovore takes down the tough units or the tanks kind of worried about the lack of synapse creatures though

Just in case you didnt know, the biovore should be 55 pts (Biovore+Acid mine=55)

For the most part this list isnt too bad, yet I still think you should fit a Lictor and at least one zoanthrope.

The lictor for a sneak attack, and to lock a squad in CC :D

The Zoanthrope for some killer instakilling and some extra synape. But hey thats just me,
I like Zoanthropes.

That house rule with +1A, that seems seriously unbalanced.

Anyways, I'd split the spinegaunts into 4 units of 10 instead, use the extra points to get the warriors a venom cannon and I'd switch the biovore for a zoanthrope with Synapse.
If you get the zoanthrope, you should also give it an additional power, I recommend either warp blast or psychic scream.

I think the carnifex needs some work, it would be a lot more effective if you made it purely for shooting or purely for CC, personally I prefer the gunfex: enhanced senses, barbed strangler and venom cannon.

--Good, just add enhanced senses like schmallz suggested. (Don't list point cost for individual biomorphs)

--I would drop most, if not all, of the biomorphs on your spinegaunts as they work best in numbers and are meant more for tying up units. I can get 88 basic spinegaunts for your 40; using 40 normal spinegaunts instead would save you 240pts. Use some of the extra points to get another squad of warriors with ST, RC, EC, AG (WS/I), and leaping or a unit of genestealers with EC.

--This works, but most people prefer the VC/BS combo as it doesn't mix the fexs roles and provides heavy anti tank support. Another option (the one that I prefer especially if you take my advice below) would be to use two twin linked devourers, 8 shots with re-rolls to hit and to wound can dish out some major damage.

--The biovore i would personal drop, it got reduced in effectiveness in 4th edition. I would replace it with a zanthrope or two (extra points form dropped spinegaunt biomorphs) this would provide you with extra synapse and a high AP weapon that can drop heavy tanks.

Just some suggestions

Yeah for games workshop, no one really used the biovore, so they decided to make it weaker! The Biovore is now just a shelf warmer(for the most part), the new wones look much better i might just by one to display it.

Yeah that is what happened to my biovore, it become more of a display model. Small blast markers in general are not that useful any more as you have to center it on a model. If your opponent spreads his troops out the full two inches only one model can be hit. This also hurt the deathspitter as that high strength is good but not if you only get one shoot and hit only one model.

Now if biovores used the large blast marker then that would give me a reason to use them.
