ETC 2015: Tyranid Army List Compilation Part 1

Here is Part 1 of a  compilation of Tyranid army lists represented at the 2015 ETC Warhammer 40k Tournament. It should be noted that the ETC doesn’t allow Forgeworld or Superheavier (so no Malanthropes or Barbed Hierodules), but does allow Come the Apocalypse Allies. What list do you think is strongest?
