Tyranids have been labeled as the overall best CQC army in the game, but is that true?
Chaos Daemons are extremly good a CQC too, are Tyranids still the best?
I have also put this question on the Tyranids page, I want your opinions, explain them well please.
I have had alot of cqc against tyranids with my Nurgle demons and they do really well. The Greater demons and Demon princes of nurgle being able to make saves against other MCs is good. The way I have won with nurgle is out lasting them rather then dealing alot of wounds.
I think slaanesh and khorne would do even better hitting first.
Nurgle DPs will mess up big bugs like no problem, but the smaller ones can be taken out with Genestealers, Tyrants, Carnifexes.
Daemons will probably beat Tyranids silly in combat, but bugs have all those multi-shot guns and templates to blow them away.

Genestealers still kill our troops in CC due to the fact that they strike before them.
I play nids quite often and I always run
2 x slaanesh heralds on chariots
5 x fiends of slaanesh
KoC at I10 and the herlads at I7 make them tyranid killers.
Bloodletters are excellent CC units but can't strike faster than genestealers
Nothing like taking out a whole squad of genestealers straight after DSing with a soulgrinder
I had to watch pure slaanesh daemons lose to tyranids, a sad day for slaaneshii kind =(
But we can alwyas corrupt more people =).
Whcich translates to yes tyranids are still one of the best CC armies out there, the right army can beat daemons up!
I have played my epidemius list vs tyranids about 8 times and all have been wins. Dps and Greater demons of nurgle can take down and survive most units of tyranids and when they tally gets up which happens quickly with all the tyranid troops the army can start pounding the bugs.
