Default does this work?...

i was talking too a mate the other day and he said the great words "biggest gun at biggest thing" implying shoot your biggest gun at the opponents biggest model i.e Carnifex, Hive tyrant, C'tan, avatar, greater deamon etc. it got me thinking is it the best thing to do?

5 questions

do you use all your small arms fire on more chances too take it down?
do you shoot your Las-cannon, demolisher or significant other large projectile weapon at it and risk missing leaving it there for another turn?
do you just simply stay away from it?
do you take it on in CC with everything youve got after all other enemy are killed untill youve got nothing left?
do you use special weapons on it too full extent of using ALL of them in one turn ie sniper fire, melta guns and the like?

It depends on the circumstances

generally it goes by target priority

If a character is the target i would generally use either heavy weapons/lasguns/sniper rifles depending on what is available at the time. Ordinance aka the biggest gun is generally wasted on single models. the most important thing to do is if you don't have the AP/instant death is force the saves, your enemy is unlikely to save them all.
There is also other things to take into consideration including the other units on the board as well as what the enemy movements and objectives are and how they intend to achieve this

i spose your right. going back on that ordenence thing have you seen the new catachan unit co-herrency? 6" ordence will still only take out 1 model.

And tyrinids cover most of the board anyway leaving not much room for tactical movments. So what do you shoot at the big ones?

same principle just take out the swarms with ordinance. don't let them get close. haveing a counter charge unit would be good too
