Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok ive thought this strategy out way too much (i seriously want to kick his butt) and so ive devised this strategy.
His army: 3 or 4 pathfinder, 9 or 10 rangers, squad of striking scorpions and exarch, farseer with whatever.
My army: 16 spine gaunts, 16 hormagaunts, 9 genestealers, 3 warriors 1 with VC 2 deathspitters.
My strategy: due to all of his stuff infiltrates, i deploy my army before his, except for his farseer. Where his farseer is, his striking scorpions will be, cuz hell make them a single group. My army will deploy directly in front of him. Ill have hormagaunts off to the flank, spinegaunts in front, genestealers infiltrated exactly, and warriors governing them all.
Strategy: My warriors open up on the scorpions, hopefully taking out a couple. The hormagaunts try to stay within synapse and drift off to take care of the snipers, which i know they are proffeccient at. The spinegaunts run up to 2 or 1 inches away from the scorpions and open fire, or use of fleet of claw to get within this distance. The genestealers get to 12inches of striking scorpions.
Now he is screwed because the scorpions are armed with pistols. He cant move or he has to charge the spinegaunts, but if he chooses to shoot he cant assualt. Thus if he shoots the genestealers instead of the spinegaunts the spinegaunts will rip into them with their guns and the stealers still charge. If he charges teh spinegaunts he cant shoot, he whipes out the spinegaunts, and the stealers still get to charge, after the warriors blow more of them appart. And thats 27 attacks on the charge, so statistically 4 will be 6's, thus 4 automatically dead. Once they are done i clean up the rest of the snipers with ease.

Just because he can't really move doesn't mean he automatically stays stationary to fire the Pistols.
Thus, if every Scorpion fires once, they're still perfectly able to Assault the Gaunts.
Of course, he can't shoot Genestealers and then assault the Gaunts, if You play TAR. =)

yeah also be aware, the farseer can take very nasty powers, like eldrich storm that will put big holes in squads of stealers and gaunts
