Tyranid Rebuild

So, as you lot probably know, the Tyranids for Warhammer 40k are getting a new codex, which will see quite a few changes to Tyranids when it arrives next month.
Well, I ended up going to my vault and discovered some Tyranid forces I still had (i.e hadn't sold off). I still had an old Hive Tyrant, Carnifex (Screamer-killer), Zoanthrope, Ravener, Genestealers, 5 Tyranid Warriors and about 40-something Gaunts. This appears to be a viable remnant for a re-build.
So far, I've put all the bits for the Tryant together and re-based him on a 60mm round base. The Carnifex has been put back together as well, although I took a spare carapace part from a plastic Carnifex kit, cut it in half and put that on him, as well as a pointy tusk that I put on his head. I just have to find a 60mm base for him and that will be it.
The Warriors will be in 2 units - one red, one green.
The Gaunts will be all regular gaunts over 4 or 5 units, I'm not too sure about Hormagaunts, as I found them a bit too easy to break from their bases.
As for Raveners, I have one at the moment and will probably get the new plastic set and go up to 4 or 5 of them.
Of course, one model I would love to get would be the Trygon/Mawloc, as it's big and nasty and a heck of a lot cheaper than the Forgeworld model.

Then, wait until the new codex arrives before final tuning.
