Lier, Belgium

I'm trying some kind of list that i never used before, and it's for a "friendly competition" so I want some feedback.

battalion jormungondr detachement

hq:
-Hive tyrant with heavy venom cannon and two devourers with brainleech worms (warlordtrait: insidious threat), paroxysm and the horror 175pts
-tervigon catalyst198 pts

troops:
-ripper swarm 33pts
-10termagants, 19 devilgaunts 192 pts
-9 termagaunts, 19 devilgaunts 188 pts

heavy support
-2X carnifex with enhanced sences, heavy venom canon, spore cysts, two devourers with brainleech worms 238pts
-3x carnifex with enhanced sences, heavy venom cannon, spore cysts, two deathspitters with slimer maggots 357pts

vanguard kronos detachement

hq:
Neurothrope with psychic scream 90pts

Elites:
-Deathleaper 60pts
-6x hive guard with impaler cannon 288 pts
-6x venomthrope 180 pts

So the idea is that the venomthropes give a -1to hit to the gauntblob and the tervigon. In our terrain it's possible to hide a squad of 6 out of LOS so i think i can let the venoms live for a couple of turns.
the hivetyrant with the horror can give an additional -1 to hit to the biggest threat at the moment.
the fexes have their own -1to hit.
dump cp in the "+1dmg for monster shooting stratagem" (i forgot the name)
deathleaper for Obvious threat. i think it's a gem


My doubts: should i dump something (hive tyrant and deathleaper? or hiveguard?) to add another tervigon and fill the list with as much gauntbodies possible?
And in case of the hive guard, i can take the shock cannons to keep them mobile, in the -1 bubble, and in 6"range of the hive tyrant so that nothing has coversave vs those guys, but i lose str and ap..

Dakka is the ork word for shooting, but the ork concept of shooting is saturation fire. Just as there is no such thing as a "miss" in a target-rich environment, there is no such thing as a "dodge" in a bullet rich one

switch the Tyrant to the kronos deteachment since he is a shooty tyrant you'll want him to be able to re roll 1s when he doesn't move. you'll want the neuro up in their face hiding in the guants anyway so you can force more mortal wounds out.

heck move all your dakka fexes to kronos. you have the venom thropes anyhow.

if you get rid of death leaper and shift some guants around you'll have 2 battalions too.

Unfortunately won't work as Venomthropes only work on the same <HIVE FLEET>
