Default 1500 nids

This is what I've been running as an all comers/balanced list that has performed quite well in the last few games, I don't however play every codex out there as my gaming circle is quite small, but I would like to take it to a tourney one day so feedback would be nice, I usually play chaos and vanilla marines with GK allies, comments always welcome

Your LW/BS & Hive Commander Tyrant stands out to me. Hive Commander I can see being very helpful but I don't think you'll get the desired effect unless you boost the numbers of the outflanking squad and it would be a good idea to also give them a screening unit. Perhaps some infiltrated lictors/genestealers? (Not sure what models you have)

I just see it being a problem because I'm assuming you're going to try to outflank one of the squads of Gaunts but I just feel like 18 isn't quite enough by themselves... it's also really important they are supported in synapse because it's likely they could instinctively come onto the board and wipe themselves out with a failed IB test.

Everything else looks decent. I don't know about Shrikes but I don't like that they are a rather weak model. (Even with 3 wounds)
