Default Tyranid basing ideas, any suggestions?

Hey guys, I have all of my tyranids already built and on their bases but I have no good ideas for what to put on the bases. My army is themed as if they were on a desert, I picked up alot of helmets, shoulder pads, bodies, guns, arms and backpacks (space marine bits, from a friend) and I don't know what to do with them! Do you guys have any ideas or suggestions on what I can do? I really want to make my trygon look menacing as he is my prized possession.

nids r 4 cool kidz

have a look at my Killa Kans: on one of their bases is a dead Space Marine buried under masonry, being stepped on by a Kan, no reason you couldn't have a 'fex impailing a dead marine's chest. With a bit of cutting and repositioning a dead SM is easy to do

I would stick a load of bits on the base, then when you come to paint them make them look bloody and perhaps greenstuff some guts and gore onto the bodies, and make the bodies look cracked open :D.
