Default Help beating a tyranid player

ive looked at the guides on tyranids and their weaknesses and none of them helped! my friend has about 4000 pts of tyranids and has tons of army lists. every single one he plays im not ready for. just for fun one day he played an army that was shootier than mine! and i play guard!!! he also has a "tankbusta" army thats basically all monstrous creatures i cant get too many wounds on, it seeems unfair! pointwise he outmatches me every time. i was wondering iff any1 haad a sort of army list or some good tips on how to beat such a diverse tyranid player. im also in the process of making a mech guard army but right now im just at 1500 pts of regular guard.

Personaly, I would load up on storm troopers and ratlings.

ST rock, hellguns are badass, and maxing out on plasma or melta is sure way to take a chunk out of the big bugs.

Rattlings, being snipers, have a better chance of takeing down alot of things better then your other units.

As Avor said ratlings are good due to tyranid low Ld(for their gaunts anyways). i would also stock up on the heavy bolters and plasma guns. heavy bolters will help you deal with the infantry while plasma guns will take out the big stuff.

yea that sounds good but he has synapse everywhere!!! i think ive only gotten his gaunts out of synapse once.... and he has to many synapse to creatures to kill them all. also he plays sometimes with something call with out number or something where his gaunts just keep comming back!

if you get a lascannon in every squad you should be able to bust any synapse thing in line of sight within 2 turns.

losing all your synapse critters on turn two is very very expensive.

LoL i'm sorry I just found this laying sumwhere and I know it's against the rules to bring up old threads but I was kinda amused by the post because he's talking about me.

My tyranid skills are crazy like that hehehe... :P

None can help save you from the grasp of the hive mind! lol

On another note, your guard have manage to frustrate my other newer armies with all these draws you keep getting against me and thus I was forced to do like you did in this thread and come ask for some advice against Guard.

In any case, today you face down my newly painted Tyranids once again prepare to be WIPEDOUT!!! Tyranids will end this stalemate.

EDIT - Dont revive dead threads please, things like this can be taken to PM instead.

Veq.
