Welcome to Librarium Online!
the questions in the title really. how to take down the tyranid biotitan. i have 9 railguns. and apart from that theres not much else i can think of.
any help appreciated!
I don't really know how it can be done. I've seen the heirophant used in two Apoc games, and in both games it was unstoppable. And there were a significant number of super-heavies arrayed against it.
All you can do is torrent it. But 9 railguns won't be nearly enough, I promise.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

Hit it with a votrex grenade. That should instant kill it.
Vortex Grenades cannot insta-kill any of the massive apoc vehicles of creatures, they just do extra wounds or structure damage. The best way I have seen, since it has been done to me, is to just spam melta at it. Now what you really have to be worried about is if they take strategic reinforcements

is it toughness 8 or 9?
There's no real way for us to take it down. Remember, there's nothing stopping us taking other units from other armies. A Farseer with Mind War, for example...
Battlecries: Sorbr'and Tau force: For the Greater Good!
Ordo Corvus Witch Hunters: Only in our flames will the heretic find peace!
everything and i mean EVERYTHING must be pointed at it, or you'll be luky to get a few wounds on it! the only way ive ever taken one down is to point EVERY SINGLE THING THAT WAS IN RANGE AT IT!!!!! ive taken it down but it took and 2 rounds of my entire army into it to bring the thing down! really if he takes it dont stop shooting at it until it falls!
There are three kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who cannot.
Can't remember what toughness that thing is right now. But spamming anything that that needs 4 or better works well. If you were allied to imperials then strength D weapons are your friend. I have seen the reavers missile launcher used to great effect too.
Tbh im not that scared of the thing any more. he shot all 16 shots into one of my broadsides (i take all six as team leaders with 2 shield drones each) and managed to kill one drone. then i shot it down in 2 rouds of shooting with railguns and mps! woohoo
Deepstriking monat Crisis suits with TL Fusion and TA's, backed up by Pathfinder Devilfish Marker Beacons maybe? If you're that concerned about titans and vehicles, there's nothing quite like anti-vehicle weaponry for getting the job done.
My gaming group's new motto: That army you're using is overpowered because it hurts my guys, codex is broken and needs a rewrite.
