Default how to beat the tyranids???

I could not stand up against a tyranid army. i was just decimated because his troops were invincible to my mellee attacks, and my weapons barely dented them. :-[ I need help creating a list to defeat them.

Basically, get 2 Full-Strength Infantry Platoons armed them with Heavy Bolters and Autocannons as well as Grenade Launchers. And 2 Leman Russ Battle Tank as well another LRBT or Basilisks. Anyway, what's the total game points?

Post the list you've been using in the army list board and we can tell you how to improve it.

Use Demolishers! The AV11 rear makes it immune to all those little gaunts running around. By using 3 of those on larger point games you can literally block off a whole flank to the gaunts, giving more time for mortars and various other template weapons.

Template, Template, Template. A cheesy way is to pact multiple special weapon flamer squads, that go suicide and torch anything they can find. Bassies are good in larger games (on a larger board) where you can use the full advantage of your long range.
As well the only real antitank for Nids is to engage in close combat with monsterous creatures. Therefore Lemon Russes are more prefrable as they have a longer range and can stand back and shoot to avoid monsterous creatures.

I would never use a LRBT against tyranids. All those S4 gaunts running around would make short work of it. It really doesn't take much to stop a vehicle from firing and then you lose those pieplates. For only 10 more points you can get a better main weapon with AP2 for killing MC's with better armor that makes it immune to any gaunt.

3 LMRBT is the way to go. We played Dawn of War and first turn, 3 pie plates (ordinance) wiped out two 6 man genestealer squads. By the fifth turn, he lost his symbiote or whatever and every gaunt began to fall off the board.
