Well, I'm toying with the list below. It consists of 2 battalions. The 3x15 Genestealers accompanied by 3 Broodlords are the main attacking force. The 3 Exocrines together with the Warriors are the main shooting force. Gaunts are just objective holders. The 2 flying Hive Tyrants fill gaps in the battle line. Thoughts?

Thank you. My bad. Changed it: 3 Warriors with 1 venom cannon, and now 2x12 Gaunts.

I'm going to be embarrassed here....were we not friends back in 2010, 2011(ish)? We'd chat on Skype sometimes, maybe played some vassal games...you taught me the german word for ..."pressure venting boiler" or something? If that wasn't you, I'm going to slink back into the shadows and mutter quietly that I can't remember gak.

Personally I would be inclined to drop the Tyranid Warriors, shave a few points from somewhere and add 3 squads of 3 rippers, just because they are much better in objective-based games, especially as back-field objective campers and importantly, as a way to stop your opponent dropping in behind your lines

I know this is a small detail but not a single one of your psychers have catalyst. I think that would be a nice power to have on something for some 5+++. A unit of stealers with double 5++ is handy IMO. I'd also look at maxing some of the stealers out so you have a better chance at keeping the units above 10 models for the extra attack. I think dropping a broodlord for more stealers would go a long way for bodies
