Well, it would certainly help if you told us what army you play so we can suggest units and tactics. At the moment I can't do much more than say kill 'em all.
Ok, I can do a bit better. Heavy bolters. Lots of them. Try a Whirlwind for pie-plate death. If he likes his big bugs consider a librarian with jump pack for force weapon goodness. Plasma and melta weapons are good against the big bugs too, they bypass thier armour.
Beware the Agapanthers!
Codex Astartes: More a guideline than a rule...
In case you are a marine player use a squadron (or two) of landspeeders w. assault cannon + heavy bolter. A Vindicator tank is good against all types of nids (and it is quite hard to destroy). If you are playin IG use the vanquisher LR variant (3 hvy bolters + twin linked autocannon) and plenty of fire support squads. If they get too close use a hellhound or a squad of sentinels w. heavy flamers to burn them off...

Please do not get annoyed on my spelling: i am not a native speaker...
Sorry to pick holes but I assume by this you mean the LR Exterminator? The Vanquisher is the LR varient with the improved battle cannon, which is of little use against tyranids.Originally Posted by ferreus
