I'm going to be facing a Tyranid Army with 2-3 Mawloc/Trygons (lets say one of each for simplicity). What's the best way to deal with them? I mean they have a ton of wounds so I worry about going with too much heavy weaponry (especially since I'm sure that will be the first thing the Mawloc(s) will pop up under) since I'm going to need a lot of firepower to deal with the normal stuff. Any suggestions?
Warptime Daemon Princes and lots of plasmaguns, this seems to be the only way I can usually combat Trygons, though I've never played against a Mawloc as I've been told they aren't very good.
World Eaters: W-47 D-10 L-9
Necrons: W-19 D-3 L-2
Protectorate of Menoth: W-36 D-0 L-7
5 terminators with combiplasma. With a unit like this the tyranid large creatures stay well away.

If you want to fight it plasma seems the best option. However instead of terminators, chosen can outflank and carry 5 plasma guns and a combi-plasma, allowing you to put out plenty of fire every turn, even with this, they can still have enough squad members with bolters to allow you to deal with swarms of lesser enemies.
This does however lack the combat effectiveness of the terminators so may not be a valid option.
A psyker with warptime may be able to score the wound necessary to kill it with his force weapon, or if you have the ability to roll 6s on demand then gift of chaos could do it, or wind of chaos always wounds on a 4+ so has the chance to harm it.
One important point to remember though is not to get hell bent on killing it, as this won't win you the game, and the points spent on the units to combat it may have been better spent elsewhere.
