Here is my current 3000 point Apocalypse army list for the Hive Fleet. For regular games, I just remove the Hierophant, and I have a regular 1750 point army. This list states each unit, with its basic equipment, followed by any upgrades in brackets.
-Hive Tyrant (Stranglethorn Cannon, Old Adversary, Leech Essence, and Paroxysm)
-3 Tyrant Guard
-22 Hormagaunts (Toxin Sacs)
-3 Carnifexes (Adrenal Glands and Frag Spines)

Why I Started This Army
As long as I've known about Games Workshop, I've loved Tyranids. Their fluff is fascinating and their models look great. Also, being a fan of the Alien movies, a swarm of deadly creatures fits me perfectly.
I first discovered Tyranids when they were in their Third Edition. The awesome history and fiction in that edition's Tyranid Codex definitely got me interested in them. In Fourth Edition, I started playing them, and ever since, my local Games Workshop store has felt the destructive power of Hive Fleet Devourer!
