It's definately heavy on Monstrous Creatures, but not a Godzilla.

One fatal flaw I can see is lack of Synapse - if the Tyrants have no Extended Carapace, you should be able to tear them to bits with Ion Cannons (and perhaps Sniper Drones... Vespid if you're desperate). The Warriors are even more killable - a well-placed volley from a few missile pods will silence them.

After that, the Guants are effectively useless, trying to pass tests with Ld5 to do anything. The 'Fexes will take some work, since they have 2+ saves that Ion Cannon and the like will be wasted on... the CC fex is so slow that it won't matter greatly, though. Perhaps your best bet is to skim around the edges, staying away from the gunfexes' short ranges and picking off the Gaunts.

That seems pretty slow. Mount all your troops in 'fishes and bring a pair of HHs (one with ion cannon) and you'll be fine. Kill of his synapse and gaunts quickly but don't worry to much about his carnfexes (carnefexi?).
