Default Tyranid Apocalypse List help needed.

Alright so i'm considering joining a halloween apocalypse game at my local GW store with my Nids but i've got 0 experience at playing apocalypse games so I dunno what works best for tyranids.

Can anyone give me the breakdown of which formations I should bring, what to use and all that.

I'm able to field just about every formation so if someone can break down the pros and cons of them i'd appreciate that as well.

I also have a question bout the Genestealer Infestation formation, it seems that the whole formation gains the Secret Deployment special rule that the Lictor has.

So does this mean the whole formation may also assault on the turn it arrives? Or is the Lictor the only one allowed to assault?

I ask because the lictor is given the ability to assault after deep striking within the secret deployment rule. However it specifically says the Lictor (but this is because Lictors are the ONLY units with this special rule in the codex) so is the ability to assault after deep striking something given by having secret deployment itself ? Or is this a lictor only rule?

Is the ability to assault on the turn you Deep Strike covered under Secret Deployment in the Lictor entry? If so, which I'm pretty sure it is, then yes.

Indeed it is but it does say "The LICTOR may assault on the turn it arrives" which is why i ask, since it specifies the lictor but alright thanks.
