If you plan to play on a small board, 4x4' for example, the Tyrranofex will be a points sink at 1k point level. Invest in Hive Guard at this points level and/or Zoanthroapes. If you must have one, for intimidation purposes, etc,.... then kit it out like GaleRazorwind has suggested, get into the thick of things and pressure your opponent!
