Try taking a Destroyer Flying Circus - plenty of good shots to take out the little guys, and enough shots to get through the bigger guys armour.

Or a Monolith, Deep Strike it into the middle of the enemy army and laugh as those D6 shots hurt everything. It can also drop those big templates to lay hurt onto MCs. In a supporting role, use it to give extra WBB or withdraw from CC.

Flood him with Warriors. That much Gauss will punish any player, and MCs are afraid of it. Try Immortals, I saw them take down a Carnifex through weight of fire.

Aim for the Synapse. Tyranids are stifled without Synapse and it can delay even a Carnifex for a turn, during which you can lay down the pain.

Consider maybe a unit of Wraiths to tie up any Flyrants. There's not many of them and they're expensive, but as speedbumps to MCs, they're unparalleled. They could easily delay a Flyrant for a turn or two.

Res Orbs on Lords are vital as always, but consider a Veil Lord.

What size army are we talking here. Also, I think destroyer focus with monolith support and warrior flank would work best.

I'm pretty sure masses of warriors would mow down nids. Destroyers would be good for taking out genestealers, nid warriors, and ravaners (the snake ones...). The heavy destroyers would best be used to snipe out the psyker nids (I can't think of the name.) They make easy kill points for ST8 and above weapons that have low AP value. A destroyer lord would probably make off like a bandit against fexes and tyrants if you give him a warsythe. The monolith would be a bane to his entire army. Any of the C'tan would also do well against his MC's.

for a 1000pt army I was thinking about putting 2x 3destroyer squads, 20 warriors, 10 scarab swarms, 1 H. Destroyer and a lord with resurrection orb and phylactery.

Very good, but remember that 1 H. Destroyer will miss a lot. Mine did. So be prepared for hi taking a lot of shots but not hitting that often. (unless i was very unlucky), Also, he won't get WWB. :P
