i think the space marines might have an advantage
The only thing SM terminators fear to nids, is the rending attacks, and you none, outnumbering guys with a 2+ armour save won't do too well, get at him with leaping warriors with rendign claws scything talons, or extended carapace stealers, the broodlord is very handy for the job.
if the terminators have assault cannons or flamers you'll want to get into cc very quickly with lots of models else you're gonna lose a lot of models(and you'll probably lose quite a few on the charge)
your lucky he hasnt got any ultramarine nid killers, if he collects ultramarines, beware.
well if i was him i would be worried about what i was thinking when i decided to use that list. Termies and land raidres are tough yeah but your the nids, and all you need are a few rendreing attacks and there goes 400 points if you have genstealers use them as they will rip them apart. the landraider will be hard to take out but if you get in combat he cant shoot you and wont be doing much then once you render his termies to death you just run at the landraider and render that or get you hive tyrant to kill. It i hope you do win as that list is really bad
hope that helps
TAU suck, Blood angels rule
i reckon he will win, i mean all the landraiders lascannons will make your Hive Tyrant wish he never came out of the norn queen, i mean 4 twinlinked lascannons will make anything quail, the warriors lack of rending claws will mean the termies will wipe the floor with them even with the fact they cant be instakilled and your gaunts will probably get soaked down with the machine spirit twin heavy bolter and tacticals, its going to take luck and 5 star general tactics to win.
Im also tyranid and SM player, so few advices:
Dont use MC Againts Termies and Land raider. Get broodlord and full retinue of stealers and few rending warriors with some cheap gaunts. He have to split fire between yours two powerfull flanks, one infiltrating or he destroys one group and second will tear him apart. Rending is must against 2+ save.
Land raider will be problem, maybe some acid spore mines cluster or zoantrope with wS10 ap 2 will power help
I reconmend a carnifex with a venom cannon at str 10, sure they can only glance but with enough glancing hits yer bound to destroy something
"Heresy is like a garden weed, it won't stop feeding until you... BURN THE WHOLE DAMN GARDEN WITH A FLAMER, BURN IT, BURN IT TO HELL!!!!!" "Is there a wittle puppy in the garden? ITS A DAEMON! BURN IT!"
I'd suggest lots of rending. A fex with a VC would also be nice. THe 2 Tl'd lascannons will mean you will most likely be taking 2 wounds a turn, so if you want an MC to live more than 2 turns, you would either have to take T-guard or a fex with the +1 W upgrade.
On another note, this thread would probably be better served if it was posted at the nids forum section instead of the SM one. I mean, why are you asking SM player how to get nids to be SM?

For a 500 point game why in the world would your opponent take Termies and a land raider. His model count is going to be very low. You need rending, there is no doubt there. Rending warriors or stealers are your best bet. Remember his model count will be low, so out numbering him IS a valid option. You throw enough attacks his way the 2+ save will eventually fail.
Against that land raider, well thats going to be a problem with your list. The only model that has a chance to hurt that thing would be your hive tyrant with a VC. Or Just tool out your tyrant for CC with scything talons and rending claws. 5 attacks on the charge just hope for a 6 on the penetration roll for the land raider. Thats S + 3d6 for armor penetration. Which in turn would say the tyrant needs to be winged and have warp field to give you some semblance (as little as it is) of an invuln save against the lascannons.
However, I do think your opponent is silly for playing termies and a land raider in such a small game.
