you need tyranid shrikes in there to accompany your gargoyles, give them lash whips and boneswords. deploy behind gargoyle brood, the gargoyles move up and form a gunline with shrikes hiding out behind them, and when they get close enough, shrikes go over the top of the gargoyles and into close combat.

replace stinger salvo with cluster spines on T-fex so it not dependent on BS3 4+ to hit, keep rupture cannon of course, but maximize stuff that is not reliant on his ballistic skill
