Revised 2000 point Tyranid Army List
I have still been playing lots of games to test the list - this list I'm posting here will probably be my standing list as its gone through lots and lots of tweaks since I first began to seriously play Tyranids. Most of the heavy hitters are still there. I've added more elements for firepower and beefed up on genestealers. I think this list is very balanced and has four scoring units. Tyranids need synergy and coordination between units... You have to think a lot to do well and I always enjoy the challenge.

I have started to play the army with some units on the table now so I no longer consider it as always having to be a played as a fully reserved army. This army has more firepower and is better at dealing with heavily mechanized armies—there are lots of options. I had a great game versus Grey Knights earlier this evening... Came right down to the wire at the end and I was way ahead on killpoints believe it or not.
