doesnt xenos fighters just give you close combat advantages that are more or less futile against nids? I never understood that upgrade, somebody help me here.

Also Grenadiers aren't allowed to be upgraded to Xenos fighters since they aren't an "infantry" unit.

Um, if I were against Tyranids, I would take as much infantry as possible. This means no grenadiers, possible conscripts.

Umm.. Why not? They can possibly let you outnumber the tyranid army. With all those bodies, they can tie up their scoring units while letting yours claim objectives, eliminate big scary units, ect... And all those lasguns can mean death for any 'nid out there.

If you only have twenty bodies in a unit that costs 4 points per body you're probably doing something wrong <_<

Try 50.

Or 100
