Welcome to Librarium Online!
My except size warrior shot down a monolith with its V.cannon... once but that was luck more than anything... Id say a squad of warriors can do something good and most likely will if you use them wisely, sticking to cover and making good use, of what ever you've equipt them for, but most likely once you've done something good they get shot to peices. Its unlikely for a squad to survive a whole battle because they are sooooo vunerable but they will do something impressive.
If you have warriors they may attract sum fire which might have harmed your HT and the players I face are usually so focused on killing the HT and genestealers that they forget about the warriors.
Im sure a 3 warrior squad (rending claws and talons) took out a squad of 5 terminators in 1 round of cc, which was nice. But enraged my opponent and they were soon shot down by heavy weapons.

exceptionally sized ones rock but you have to remember they have the same armour and toughness as a normal warrior, and that btw is crap. You can have squads of 9, so they may last a while longer in big units, but that still aint very long. Just make best use of cover although the STBO rule is just plain racist! Also wings or leaping is really good. Lets face it people, there a neccecity. I just make all my zoanthropes synapse. one will last longer than as many warriors you can get on the table.

o god soz wot a dingus i am but u no wot i mean basically im tryin to say THEY DIE
Tyranid warriors can kill many strong squads and tanks, especialy if they have scything talons and rending claws. The only problem is their save and toughness.
I use winged CC warriors. They are mostly not to cost effective(45 pts a pop) and usually wont get back even half of their points. The Ml's and other high strength guns that dont have the AP value to shoot my carnies or tyrants will be directed at these and kill them fast.
I still take 9 of them though because they just look so damn cool!
Some of my Warriors always makes it into CC, and theyre normal walkers! My opponents, when giving a choice between a slow-moving TMCs and slow-moving warriors, will always go for the first one. They never try to kill the warriors until its too late.

Im in ur Halo, killin ur covernantz
I prefer Tyranid warriors with wings because they reach the enemy faster, but also because even if some of them do get killed, it saves my gaunts and TMC
i usally take Rending/Talon/Leaping warriors in every game. if they make it then they add are good hard punch and can destroy just about anything they touch. if they dont, well atleast the models are cool. usually im saying the second choice during any given day :o
<insert witty remark here>
Leaping is very helpful with warriors, but it is much harder to model them to leaping than just glueing wings to them.
