First; Old One Eye is terrible. Just saying.

The other option is Shrikes with Rending Claws and Boneswords. Yes. You read correctly. Why would you take Rending when you already have Power Weapons? Because you have to. Otherwise you're in trouble. Given that 'Nids have no other good FA options except for Deep Striking Gargoyles, Shrikes are a pretty good pick. It's a shame they're almost as much of a pain in the butt to make (or get right) as a Tyrannofex.
But, then your opponent just shoots the Shrikes with Meltaguns, Krak Missiles and Lascannons-on-Razorbacks.
Tyranids can't deal with Mech. True story.

You can fight like a krogan or run like a leopard but you'll never be better than Commander Shepard.
