Why limit it to just the Dominatrix? (2nd Ed, of course...)

The whole tyranid army smells of cheddar to me.

In the example above I would probably use the THawks to try and win the game
on turn 1 by grabbing all of the objectives (boring, yes, but with the force
above it is that or head for a dropship...)

I would strongly advise against the artilery company for two reasons - 1.
It's IG and not SM and that makes the force "unclean"... and 2 - not enough
firepower fot the money.

Try a few detachments of Vindicators and some Tarantulas or some other SM
foot troops.
