Hey Guys I would like some advice on this list I wanted to play for an upcoming tournament

The list is

Hive Tyrant with wings and two twin linked brain leech devourers
Hive Tyrant with wings and two twin linked brain leech devourers

Two Hive Guard
Two Venomthropes

30 termagants (10 have devourers)
Tervigon
3 warriors with barbed strangler

25x Gargoyles

Exocrine
Mawloc
Tyrannofex Acid Spay

Comes to 1750. I have play tested this list a bit and it has done pretty well. My biggest fear is multiple armor 13 targets (Knights or Necron transport spam) Wave Serpent spam and Astra Militarium parking lot, other than that this list can handle most things. The only thing in my list I do not like in it is the Mawloc but I do not know what I would put in his place. Maybe biovores and than make them, the warriors and exocrine living artillery? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your response I appreciate the advice.


I think I will take biovores in that fourth slot and just add living artillery that seems like the best idea in which case I drop the mawloc. The only problem is that they can not deal with armor 13 which is the biggest problem in this list. Tyrnaids as a whole struggle with this so its hard to find a solution. The problem with carnifexs is getting them into combat. I tried running two but even with cover and feel no pain they usually die turn two. People understand how good they are and do not want them to reach their lines. In addition carnifexs will have a hard time crossing the board and against wave serpents or knights have a hard time getting into combat. A unit with four wounds and only a three up save is not that hard to take down and if a good player sees them coming will easily be able to out move them. I honestly think that in this edition monstrous creatures should not be used in combat to kill vehicles as they just have to hard a time getting there and doing damage. With regards to the synapse point the warriors work well enough to guard the backfield units and the tervigon usually escorts the gargolyes. I think any more synapse would not be needed as the four I already have had usually provided enough. It is something to think about I am just not sure what I would drop and then what would I add for more synapse, warriors? I probably should add carnefexs but then I would not be able to take biovores. What would you suggest I drop? Thanks for the advice I really appreciate it.
