    Khorne vs Nids

    Im thinking of challenging someone at my local store to a 1500 point battle and they use Nids. I was just wondering what kind of tactics people would suggest to use against Nids?

    At the moment im thinking of using-

    -Dreadnaughts and Defilers with mutated hull, sending them into CC
    -Kharn the Betrayer, i wonder what hes in the army for :shifty:
    -A Bike Squad
    -Daemon Prince with Beserker Glaive, Furious Charge...any other ideas?
    -Obviously Khorne Beserkers
    -Also for some reason I have the urge to use terminators but as it is i'll be low on

    Anyway, do any of you have any hints or tips for eradicating the Nids swarm?

    Just give yourself a messload of 'Zerkers... they will do what they do best.. Kill things like crazy. Don't bother with bikes... the 'Nids will get to you fast enough, I promise. Just use the defiler to blast em as they are running down, and then wreck them in close combat. You get more attacks and have a better armor save than them. You will win. My cousin who plays 'Nids hates 'Zerkers, because they just plow through his carni's and gaunts. Just might wanna get something that can shoot the crap outta the 'Stealers Like a defiler and a Preditor with AC turret and HB sponsons.

    I have confidence in this build.

    No, keep the bikes, while your defiler weakens the nid' minions finish them with your bikes.

    I would say tool up with axes of khorne where possible. You get extra attacks against an army that has a large model count...I don't see how that can ever be a bad thing .


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    What kind of nid army would you be facing?

    Centum had some good comments, but it really depends if you will be facing a gene army, godzilla, a mobile bug force.

    Also keep your deamon prince away from his Tyrant's/broodlord they will eat through him like mice through cheddar.

    He has about 6000 points of Nids in total so it could be anything.

    Than it can get very ugly indeed, with that much choice there is very little that can be said for planning on what to do against him.
    Your gonna have one though battle against him though.

    True...im just trawling through the list i usually use to see if i can free up points anywhere to see if i can increase my model count. I think i'll probably remove the possessions from the vehicles and just keep mutated hull on each. That frees up 80/100 points, havent fully checked lol.

    Oh and one more thing, do Nids have anything that can destroy a vehicle easily? I mean SM and CSM have lascannons, Tau have the Railgun...Nids have the venom cannon but that only ever glances...is there anything that can pose a serious threath?

    Mindblast is pretty viscious with Strength 10. The bad thing about that is that it'll eat tanks and rip instant-kill a DP. I'd stay away from a Statured Prince for that reason, regardless of how useful it could be.

    I noticed in your tactics that you want to charge a Dreadnaught or Defiler into combat. Don't do that. More than any other army Nids can take out tanks in CC, with all their rending and MCs.

    My suggestion is, as others have said, take a lot of Berserkers (half upgraded, half basic) and a bit of firepower support from Predators and Defilers. Charge your cheap things into theirs, and your expensive things into their expensive things. Use Defilers to take out genestealers, and the Predator to take out Carnies or HTs.
