I recently just got back into tyranids, haven't played since 6th edition with the previous codex. I would like to play a swarm army. So I came up with a list I thought would be an okay, it's not competitive at all and that's the point but would like a list that won't get blown away instantly, that has a chance.

HQ
Tyranid Prime
-Lash Whip & Bonesword
-Deathspitter

ELITE
Hive Guard x3
-Impaler Cannon x2
-Shock Cannon

Zoanthrope x1

Lictor x1

TROOP
Tyranid Warrior x3
-Barbed Strangler
-Deathspitter x2

Termaguant x20

Termaguant x20

Hormagaunt x20

Hormagaunt x20

FAST
Gargoyles x18

998/1000

My main army is Khorne Daemonkin so I figured I could use a zoanthrope so I wouldn't forget about the psychic phase. I think the lictor(s) are a really cool unit and Ill eventually get a Deathleaper, but I feel as tho the gargoyles are just wasting points in a way, due to them being 18, if I drop them I could add 1 more lictor and Zoanthrope. I tried throwing a Hive tyrant by Becomes costly if I make him fly or walk with tyrant guard. In 1000 you don't see many vehicles so I didn't bring a lot of anti tank, but the Zoantrhope(s) and Hive guard can deal with them as long as there isn't too many. But enough rambling, tell me what you think of the list, and keep in mind that I might just switch the gargoyles for another Zoanthrope and Lictor.

I'd change the prime a bit. Maybe take the reaper of obliterax (?) instead of a standard lash/sword, then take scything talons instead of the deathspitter. Focus on combat where the reaper and extra attack from the talons will accentuate his strengths

I'd also consider giving him adrenal glands and merge the hormagaunts into one big blob of 30 to escort him. Adrenal glands should help him keep up and 30 ablative wounds give him a decent chance of reaching combat

Otherwise I'd look for a bit more anti armour somewhere. If you could make space for a dakkafex you could use the gargs as a screen to give it cover
