    against gaurd

    ive played against them

    engage in cc asap. venom cannon their vehicles with fexes, and gets your winged hive tyrant and cc troops into cc using cover. essentially if u get into cc and their vehicles are geting messed with youll win. biovores also work well.

    your mvps will be the winged hive tyrant, biovore, and hormagaunts. use spinegaunts to abosrb hits since they wont want anything cheap spine gaunts, or 200+pt hive tyrant anywhere neer charge range

    As mentioned, speed is the key to a swift vitory against IG.

    from leaping warriors to spine gaunts and a lictor in between lictors, anything to lock your opponent ASAP means healthy bugs!

    Lictors can tie up a regiment of guardsmen on thier own when they show up, and also a good way to use psychology for your opponent to stay away from terrain, this can help you box him in for a maximum effect of consolidation.

    Raveners are quite fast and deadly against IG, make a good use of screening units to keep them alive untill they hit combat on turn 2 (they count as beasts, fleet move and 12'' charge)

    A Shootifex can be a good way to draw fire away for the horde, or to drop a barded strangler template on a troop or a lemann russ, along with a Vennon Cannon.

    ...aaannnndddd you should target there Commanding Officers. Normally, these guys will be in the middle or back of the force, dipensing leadership. Get something really fast to go in there and tear up a few officers, and the guard will start to break like... glass(?).

    Translation:

    Kill there Platoon Commanders to make them break fast. Reavers and Flying Tyrants are best for tackling there tanks; oh, and like they said, dual Barbed Strabglers on your Carnifexs will slaughter there massed platoons of men.

    (Although, I disagree with Reavers popping tanx...)

    Do NOT simply hop your flying HT down the middle of the board, use the flanks and never, ever understimate the power of massed lasguns. Shooting or CC.
