An army list? No. An armylist entry? Yeah. Unless you are asking whether a Space Marine army can have preferred enemy: tyranids...?

Nope, they are merely an Elites choice for the Ultramarines.

However, you could easily build a Chapter of veteran Tyranid fighters using the Traits from the Marine Codex.

Not that they're very good unfortunately. Someone in GW forgot that prefered enemy doesn't work against monsterous creatures, so that fancy krak grenade rule they get is no better than their normal attacks against TMCs. :rolleyes:

you forget that TWVs are the only ones who can use krak grenades in this way.

I'm pretty sure they got that idea from a story out of the 2nd Edition Space Wolves Codex. It details a battle where Ragnar stuffs a krak grenade down the gullet of a carnifex and Njal rips the head off of a Hive Tyrant (off-page though.)

I still think it would be useful against bugs like Warriors and Broodlords. Haven't played them, yet, but I'm building a squad of them just for looks anyhow.
