Well, I looked through the other thread, and the advice they gave was pretty good: either go swarm or go genestealers against that... probably genestealers.

I do have a couple questions:
what points level are you playing?
what does your list look like?
is he annihilating your warriors in assault or shooting?
how many warriors are we talking here?

Second genestealers, and use gaunts as cover as the 'stealers come up on the field. Or, you can try and outflank with the stealers. I prefer outflank simply because I don't have a lot of gaunt models. Genestealers will always outperform warriors in melee, and will make short work of terminators as long as they don't have the new codex SM SS.

Try to avoid sending the broodlord's squad in first, as his squad doesn't have fleet, and is less forgiving with assault distances.

If you can get the assault, have someone with feeder tendrils nearby, and keep the genestealers initiative (don't assault through cover, or at least take frag 'nades) I can guarantee the 'stealers will eat his unit.

the list I use is my army (I think it's in my profile) and at that point it was 2000 but is now 1500 or so. I had the idea of making two of my hormagaunt squads one, moving the broodlord's retinue to troops, infiltrating with the broodlord right near the enemy, and outflanking (wich I just learned about) with both stealer broods. my reasoning on this is that the broodlord is a huge target for him and he will focus most of his attention on it. he does the same with stealers, but less so than the broodlord.

the only real reason that the warriors being dead is a problem is synapse. they are one of three synapse creatures in my army and the little ones tend to be too fat for the others. the warriors also at that point had my only barbed strangler so there was that....
