    My tactics here will be to advance with everything towards the objective and to sit in a mob around it until termis start teleporting in and drop pods start coming down. I will attempt to swamp the termi squads with gaunts until counter charge in the form of raveners and tyrants can be brought to bear. The tactical squads will be targeted by all of my barbed stranglers as soon as they come on in order to keep them pinned and taking fire for as long as possible. With the hefty leadership mods that my psychic screams will incur I expect his tactical squads to either be pinned or fleeing for most of the game.

    EDIT: Should the termis opt to start the battle on the board I will concentrate fire on them from the start with my entire force and attempt to get charges off with the raveners. Due to the fact that my opponents force is coming onto the board piece meal I should be able to pick apart what is on the board with all of my dakka before reinforcements arrive.

    Excuse me, but are you sure warriors can take Twin Linked BS/VC?
    I'm fairly sure they can't, there's a debate about it going on in the Tyranid rules question thread at the moment.

    At any rate, I vote you, he's got all his Deep striking, you can just rush in and take a few objectives in the first turn, then he'll deep strike a bit away from you so he doesn't get charged like, instantly, and then you can shoot him straight off. This will wipe out most of the squads that come down near you, and cut his dudes down quickly.

    The terminators will pose a problem though, but massed firepower can eliminate them quite easily, I suppose.

    well since I can take 2 weapons and any weapon take twice counts as twin linked, I am pretty sure. Thanks for the vote.

    Well the warrior bit is getting a bit of attraction but i'm still going with IronAngel only because of the numbers to demolish the space marines

    IronAngel

    IA's strategy seems good enough though I see a ton of ACs. Drop Pods mean DR can get in close to pop TMCs with plasma and melta. However, those Ravaners (no one has mentioned yet) are the ace in the hole that will give IA the edge.

    A pretty close call, in my book, to the Nids.

    IronAngel has this one. Sound strategy.

    But Angel, I'm pretty sure the Warrior entry says that one Warrior may take A VC/BS...

    based on the feedback obtained from my inquiries in the rules forum I will be making a change to my list which will involve the third warrior in each squad having a barbed strangler and a devourer.

    Err...
    That's a waste of points isn't it?
    You can only fire 1 a turn, not both like MCs.

    I must agree here. Even better would be TL Deathspitter seeing as weapon strength is based and modified by the beast's strength. Really, with a Warrior, you're looking at a S4 pie plate. A TL Deathspitter will give you a S6 blast with rerolls to hit. This would be better than a BS and some form of CC biomorph.
