    Destroyers. If I remember correctly, they're pretty cheap, and could be very effective. A Monolith would be nice too, an Ordinance Template is always a good thing against Nids.

    If your having trouble with them rushing you too quickly, use VoD to warp behind some of their guys with a Warrior squad, open up on em, get charged, then teleport away next turn. This would also split his army up, make it arrive at your lines piecemeal.

    More warriors, destroyers and maybe a tomb spyder or two with a handfull of scarabs. Warriors and destroyers for firepower and to delay phase out. Tomb spyder mainly to let your guys get back up when an entire squad is wiped out in 1 turn. Scarabs to either back up the spyder or to block/distract the odd swarm of gaunts, just so they don&#39;t all hit you at the same time.

    I wouldn&#39;t bother including a Nightbringer yet. He just takes up too many points in small games.
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

    true. 2 HQ chocies in a 1000 points game or close enough is over kill... e could phase you out by killing like 15 warriors...

    more warriors, a couple of destroyers and some immortals

    a monolith would work very well to. most nid army&#39;s will have huge troubles shooting it down.

    What the heck is a heavy destroyer doing in your army? No nid Player has ANY fear of ONE heavy destoyer. Some advice:

    Agaist Nids, you want Units that can exel in crowd control, ie engage multibe units. Not Broods, Units&#33; Destroyers are perfect for this. Use them to Kill his/her warriors. People, including me, hate that.

    Use your lord to engage his small troops like gaunts. DO NOT ATTACK HIS WARRIORS WITH YOUR LORD&#33;&#33; Warriors OWN Lords. Hell, two genestealers Own A Lord...

    Basically, kill his hormigaunts/Gargoyals first, and you will leave him crying.


    Best of luck.

    Tobias
