tyranids are the hardest army to playa nd win with in 1000point games or larger. so if youl iek havinh your a$$ handed to you 90% of the time play them. or you knwo if you just want to field the best lookign army in the game.
Because a horde of gaunts is a cool sight on the battlefield?
Because you outnumber your opponent at least 2:1?
Because you cann afford losing all those gaunts?
Because there are lots of mean hard hitters in a tyranid army?
Because the models look great and offer lots of conversion opportunities?
Because they have cool fluff?
PS: Tyranids are definitely not the hardest army to play. They have the best win-lose rate of all armies in the game.
