I would go the storm lord if he plays tyranids as they tend to be a horde army and then u could use some heavy weapon teams with ether laser cannons or auto cannons to target hes hive tyrant >.

Assuming you're playing Apocalypse :, the only OBVIOUS answer is the Stormlord. Vulcan Mega Bolter for the win!

I'm assuming you are playing Apocalypse, or that he's actually allowing you to bring one. The Shadowsword would be a complete waste of time, considering it's for titan hunting. I mean, if he's got a trygon or something it's a different story.

Regardless, without any knowledge of what he's fielding the Stormlord is your best bet. Then follow up with some heavy weapons to deal with any monstrous creature he sends your way.

Also, inb4 grammar police. :P

I'd agree that a Stormlord would be the best choice for most Tyranid armies. And it is packing sponsons for the anti-big-bug department, like Fexes and Tyrants. However, if your Tyranid buddy has a lot of FW Nids such as the Heirophant, Heirodules, and Harridan, a titan-hunter would not be out of the question.

Unless you are titan hunting I'd go for the stormlord.

One thing to remember is that the guns different guns slot in and out of the turret, so if you don't glue your heavy stubbers in place you can take them off and place a plasti-card roof over the troop compartment and say that it is a different configuration of the Shadowsword.

Just offer him a few more hundred points in exchange

Anyway, stormlord ftw.
