Default tyranofex help

hi guys, I recently played a match against tyranids, and my friend used a tyrannofex against me. although it took up a big chunk of his army, it more then payed back its points (if you ask me), when in a bout of luck, it slaughtered 60 of my boys throughout the game. I know I cant guard against bad luck (besides with weighted dice), bit are there any things you can do to protect against 20 f'in shots. thanks in advance!

How did he kill 60 boys with the fleshborer hive, it only has a 12" range? If he's that close a mob of boyz and a pk nob should take it out easily.

i made the mistake of trying to use as few upgrades as possible, just to see how it went (probably the stupidest thing ive ever done :P) and he always managed to keep some thing in between his tyranofex, and my boys. also, as I said before, he got really, really lucky. I came up with the idea of a flank charge with a bunch of nob bikers, but I havent gotten a chance to play recently.

managed a few. other possibility is that I counted wrong. keep in mind this was a 7 turn game.

really huge, and though I hate to say it, totally awesome. nob bikers are extremly effective against, i found.
