Default 1500 Point List

I will be going to a small friendly tournament in a few weeks and am working on a list. I've put together what I think is fairly good, but I would like people's advice on it. I believe there will be a wide variety between infantry heavy and mech heavy lists, so I've tried to stay somewhat in the middle with them. Also, no unique/named characters are allowed.

Anyway, here's my list.

== HQ ==
Tyranid Prime (1) - Deathspitter, Pair Of Boneswords, AG, Toxin Sacs = 115 pts.

== Elites ==
Hive Guard Brood (3) = 150 pts.
Zoanthrope Brood (230 pts.)
Zoanthrope (3) = 180 pts.
Mycetic Spore (1) - Cluster Spines = 50 pts.

== Troops ==
Tervigon (1) - Cluster Spines, AG, Toxin Sacs, Cat, Onslaught = 210 pts.
Termagant Brood (17) - Devourer = 170 pts.
Termagant Brood (17) - Devourer = 170 pts.

== Fast Attack ==
Harpy (1) - Cluster Spines, Twin-Linked Heavy Venom Cannon, Regeneration = 185 pts.

== Heavy Support ==
Trygon Prime (1) - Regeneration = 265 pts.

== Total ==
1495 pts.

Now I've never used a harpy before. I've read a bit about them and am a little concerned about how it will survive. Do you think it can bring its points back in a list like this? Or should I drop it and try to make room for something else?

the problem with harpys are that they tend to move faster than the rest of your army and will become stranded, at only a toughness of 5 a carnifex would be more durable and effective.

also i would consider dropping the prime and taking a hive tyrant, a prime with no warriors to go with seems a waste of points, whereas the hive tyrand will be an effective and very distruptive commander by using his psychic powers to distrupt the enemys bs an ws which in my time has proven to be a life saver , trust me i love my hive tyrant soo much!
