Hi,
I'd like to check if this seems doable:

A Kronos gunline consisting of Barbed Hierodule, Exocrine, Tyrannofex, and Hive Guard, supported by Malanthrope and Neurothrope plus Zoanthropes. The Acid Spray Tyrannofex is there to counter enemy troops that pop up near my gunline.
The whole GSC detachment starts underground and pops up near the enemy. Three blobs of Acolyte hybrids (each 10 men strong, each with 4 Heavy Rock Saws, all with Flamers), supported by a Primus and a Clamavus for better charge roll chances.

Somewhere in the bloody warp

Just speaking from a purely GSC point of view here, I like the look of the 4AE detachment, but there are one or two things I might do differently.

With the primus, I'd suggest Alien Majesty as a more useful warlord trait - buffs his auras by 3" up to 9", so that if he fails his charge, he's still buffing the units of acolytes who (hopefully) made it in.

I'm not sure whether Commanding Amplification is worth it on the Clamavus. Even extending his aura to 9", I doubt you'd be able to fit more than 2 acolyte units in one place at any one time, and he can easily cover 2 with his regular 6" aura. If you can hide him away, he'll be able to buff the third squad on the following turn (or you can simply Perfect Ambush them in).
That CP might better be spent on the Heart of the Creed for the Primus, so he gets a second choice of target for re-rolling wound rolls of 1.

Do you know what your sin is, Malcolm Reynolds?
Ah hell, I'm a fan of all seven.
But right now, I'm gonna have to go with wrath,

Hi Drakeslayer,
thanks a lot for your input regarding the GSC detachment. I'll definitely make these changes.

In the Tyranids detachment I guess that 10 Termagants might be better than the 4x Ripper Swarm to screen my gunline.
Two 3x Ripper Swarm units should be enough to pop up somewhere and camp objectives.
