Tyranid List help and Clean out time

Hello all:

I have been having a lot of fun playing my tyranid army.  Right now my list is as follows:

Hive Tyrant: bone sword, lash whip, scything talons, wings, old adversary, paroxysm, leech essence, adrenal glands, regeneration

Parasite of Mortrex: joins the gargoyle squad

3 hive guard

3zoanthropes in spore

10 termagaunts devourers

tervigon scything talons, adrenal glands, toxin sacs, cataclysm, regeneration

10 termagaunts: fleshborers

tervigon: crushing claws, adrenal glands, toxin sacs, cataclysm, regeneration

18 hormagaunts, adrenal glands, toxin sacs

18 gargoyles: toxin sacs, adrenal glands

trygon: adrenal glands, toxin sacs, regeneration

Its a fun army.  The trygon does well, the guard are great, the zoanthropes haven't been stellar, but have been doing a lot of assists being part of a one-two punch with my trygon.  I like running the trygon up rather than deep striking him.  The parasite is working pretty well, and is very survivable in with all the gargoyles.  I am thinking I should take regeneration off of everyone since I have yet to see it do much.  I am also thinking about dropping the point hog tyrant, and going with a prime with warrior bodyguard. 
Any ideas or help on the list would be great.

On a separate note,  I started the other night fixing up some old original tyranid warriors.  I started making some lash whips to go with their anemic bone swords and decided to finally get rid of the lot of them.  I don't like how they look, and am jealous of the great looking new models.  Same goes for my old raveners.  They have some great rules I would love to try, but my old, metal, original, raveners just aren't cutting it.  Need the new plastic, or at least the newer metal.  If anyone wants to trade let me know.

I have decided that if I don't like a model, then sell it.  Too much time goes into modeling and painting to use an ugly model.  So ebay here they come
