alright, i'm not so good at nids, but here i go from what i managed to pick up (after i finished picking up my army...) the two squads of 5 genestealers, scrap or combine them to get either another Pyrovore, Carnifex, or (my favorite) a biovore or two,
from what i can tell, you have two armies here a main army, and a drop/Tunnel/Fly in army to catch them off guard, just remember your synapse, and try to lock up the good units until your heavy hitters can get close,
other than that looks good, i hope someone will help you farther than i can...

Ok, for starters, don't put toxin sacs on your high strength units it just lowers their to wound roll and lets you re roll missed against most enemies, also i find implant attack, personally, to be a really bad choice but then again i have very few enemies that actually have more than a few wounds, as for synapse you need more, i suggest cutting some points somewhere so you can make your warriors shrikes so they can get around the map more and help with synapse and/or make your trygon a prime, because primes are always so good as for strategies you will probably want to get your lictor in as fast as possible so your deep strikers can come in almost instantly with no chance of scatter and then make sure your smaller groups of genestealers tie up your enemies big shooters untill you can close with your heavier hitters like your tyrant to tear them apart, you can also try to clean up their melee units with your VC's besides that, if you keep everyone in synapse and use them for their rolls you should be good, hope i helped
P.S. don't list individual biomorphs just the total price, against the rules

I have removed the biomorphs points. Sorry for that ^^

Thanks for the tips! I have done a mix of what you both have said and removed one of the genestealer broods and added 3 to the other so i have a brood of 8 and a 12. I have also removed all the toxin sacs and implant attack from the high strength creatures. As for synapse, the only units that need to stay inside synapse range is the pyrovore, hormagaunts and the carnifex. So do i really need that much more synapse?

Thats exactly what i was aiming for on the tactics^^ get the lictor in as fast as possibly and deep strike.

Whats a VC?:P

If i where to take shrikes what weapons should i give them?

vc = venom cannon
the lictor needs to be in synapse too and he's the main one i was talking about
also with the shrikes you should just get the same as the warriors
