Welcome to Librarium Online!
So my friend runs a nid army geared up to be ridiculously cheesey. Which includes min/maxing on warriors to get a whole buncha blast weapons that now auto hit, along with 2 sniper fexes. And then there are his genestealers which tear through my trukk boyz and usually can take a good chunk outta my nob bikers. then he screens his whole army with 40 guants coming in at 200 points for them (giving his army a 4+ cover save more or less)
Im just at a loss on how to beat him, or what to take out first or what but this is what i run, please gimme some tips or what ever.
Space Orks: 2000
-Shoota/Skorcha Kombi Weapon
10 Tank Bustas 180
12x5 Slugga Boyz 760
8 Nobz 470
-2 Power Klaws
Looted Wagon 120
Looted Wagon 120
Battle Wagon 185
He uses a Tyrant with twin linked devourers (ridiculous dakka) brood lord, 24 stealers, 2 sniper fexs, 9 warriors, and a few rippers.
Im not sure if a foot slogging army would be better, or replacing the tanks with some buggies, or aer the nob bikers too expensive (against anyone else they own, cept maybe chaos)
I would recomend Burnas and Lootas. Burnas have power wepons in close combat witch can give the monstercreturs problems and the have burnas they can fire that can take a whole group with gaunts or geanstealers un 1 turn. But burnas need a transport to work well. I think Lootas are better than tankbustas cause you have a chanse to fire more shots. they have 1 less streangth than rokkits but still 3 shots with streangth 7 are better then 1 shot with streangth 8. Lootas shoulde be in groups with 13-15 cause they will take some fire and burnas work in all sizes but they need a transport.
Hope I could help you.
I'd also cut out the Tankbustas. Yes, there are some unit in Tyranids that have 3+ armor saves, but most of the really dangerous ones either have 2+ or 5+. Lootas and burnas will help you a lot more than Tankbustas in this case.
