Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Multi-Tracker

1 Crisis Battlesuit @ 65 Pts
Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Multi-Tracker

Pulse Rifle (x8)

13 Kroot Carnivores @ 109 Pts

For a change from my usual strategy, I would probably drop some kroot for more firewarrior to kill the gaunts before they reach your firing lines.

I'd definetely try and get some Stealth Suits in. Keep the Kroot but drop the Hounds. You will be engaged in CC by anyone who has played their Nids enough to understand 'cover' and 'Fleet of Claw'.

Drop the Crisis Suits, in 40kI40M you won't be facing anything extremely large and nasty because of the fundamental rules. Use them to get Stealths.

6 Steath (180)
12 Firewarriors (w/ sushi) 130 pts
DF w/ DL and TA. 90 pts

400 pts total

It works for me and the nids!

Defenitely get the stealths, they will rip gaunts apart (btw its fleet OF foot ^-^). Since he plays no monstrous creatures (damn good thing in a 400 pt game) then you can put more pts into firewarriors. Make sure to get the warriors first though, they will do much more damage to precious stealths, while gaunts will die if they dont get that first massive charge (which they wont since they can only make second turn charge and by then they should be reduced. And if you use stealths, DONT infiltrate them, that will give your opponent first turn charge.

EDIT: If he doesn't use leaping with the warriors, forget them and go for gaunts first.

Well they're getting Fleet of Claw. Does it matter? Just watch out when they do it because it's so random it could give you an extra turn or lose you the game.

I played nids long before I played tau, and fleet of foot/claw is pretty reliable. If they rush straight forward, they will always get a second turn charge, unless you somehow have your army spread far back. The best thing to do is let them move forward, and then move your own firewarriors up and rapidfire, that eats gaunts like mad. If you want to FoF, first make sure you can deal with the amount of gaunts you are attacking; a few can cause quite some havok to a crowded FW squad, and nids can easily make it around a tank.

the Fw and Stealths should eat the gaunts easily, then its just the warriors, use the fish as a charge blocker and snipe with the FW.
