I'm a bit curious to know how this list fares and what basic strategy you use.

I've always preferred a swarm list myself, with three or four large blocks of gaunts supported by specialists like zoanthropes and lictors with maybe one tyrant or trygon.

I do like this list, though I've never seen a nidzilla list in action under this codex. Let me know how it goes ya? :good:

First, your tervigons are definitely off on points. Psychic powers alone brings it to 190, toxin and adrenal taking it to 210 and I never use talons so I'm not sure on the points, but I'm guessing at least 5 (codex not on hand)... and your Hive tyrant with those upgrades is 25 points less. Still balances out to 1850 on the dot with those two adjustments. Anyway, I would lose at least 2 hive guard (depending on your meta). At 1750 I have been running 4 in tournaments and have found it redundant. I've also been using 2 flyrants at 1750 in tournaments though. So perhaps the extra hive guard make up for it... I think you might be better off with 2 units of 2 or maybe even 1 unit of 2 depending on your meta. I would take that extra 100 to 200 points for hormagaunts, maybe a tervigon HQ (as the tyrant will probably die and a tervigon as a warlord is pretty rad.

This is the basic advice I can give without knowing what you think you might be facing at this tournament. In my meta is is flier heavy and I have found 2 hive tyrants with wings to be crucial.
