Hi all,

I have a 4k game coming up facing an opponent with a tank-themed SM force, with a knight allied attachment.

Unfortunately I do not have any GCs at the moment to combat the knight, but this is my thought when facing the foe with several tanks and a whole ton of marines: (please not this is all I have atm, so am limited in terms of variability)

Flyrant: T/L Devourer and Hive commander
The Swarmlord!
Tyranid Prime- deathspitter & Norn Crown
Tervigon with crushing claws.

Formation: Endless Swarm
Termie squad 1: 30 gants, 10 devourers
Termie Sqd 2: same as above
Termie Sqd 3: 30 gants: 5 Devourers, 8 Spinefists
Hormagaunt Sqd 1: 15 gaunts
Hormie Sqd 2: 15 gaunts
Hormie Sqd 3: 17 gaunts- all hormies with adrenal glands

Genestealers x15 (& Broodlord): Scything talons on all.
Rippers (3 sqds of 5): all with deep strike and spinefists
Warriors: 3 squads of 3, . 6 deathspitters, 3 barbed stranglers
1x Lictor
Zoanthrope brood (3 in brood). Considering upgrading one to neurothrope: thoughts?
1x venomthrope
Ravenor Brood: deathspitters
Gargoyles (x10)
9x spore mines (1 cluster)
Trygon prime with Ymgarl factor, prehensile pincer and regeneration

Formation: Carnifex crusher brood (x3)
1st: Stranglethorn cannon, Bio plasma, Crushing claws and regeneration
2nd: Heavy Venom cannon, scything talons, Bio plasma and regeneration
3rd: T/L Devourer with brainleech worms, scything talongs, bio plasma and regeneration

from my reckoning i should be bang on points, if not close. Where would it be worthwhile investing/ removing points in the list?

As always thoughts, opinions are welcome.

Cheers :)
