Q: How will the Tyranids play out?
A: Tyranids will have something called "Synapse". From worthplaying, "toss a grenade over a wall into a group of Tyranids with a synapse creature, and they will immediately recognize it as a weapon, move to avoid it, and search out the attacker who launched it. Use a sneak attack to eliminate the synapse creature before tossing in a grenade, and the reaction is quite different. The individual Tyranids won't know that the grenade is a threat. Some may ignore it. Others may sniff it. But they won't run, and when it blows up, it takes out most of the group."
1) Stage 1 - Spore mines, these slow floating creatures can explode into some nasty goop, which does damage btw.
2) Stage 2 - Hive node, an artillary that can shoot Tyranid juice(acid?), which can damage enemy units over a wide area.
3) Stage 3 - Brood nests, these nests spawn new group of Tyranids every 10-15 seconds.
Tyranids resource(in sp camp) - Bio-Mass
Tyranids reduce everything organic in the map and use that aganist you.
