What should a Nid player field versus Imperial Guard?
I finally played my first Nid versus Imperial Guard fight, 1000 pts.
I didn't want to play cheesy, so I had only ONE winged tyrant with three T-guard. My anti tank operation was pretty much just a single carnifex, with double venom cannons. Backing them up I had two 20 packs of spine gaunts, and one 24 pack of hormagaunts.
My opponent fielded two tanks (one a Leman Russ) and a chimera, some small troop units, two, filled, autocannon heavy support choices, and some badass commissar / officer sorts.
The venom 'fex failed to wound the tanks, as did the psychic blasts of the Tyrant. By the time I got into cc, he still had his heavies, and my carnifex was down.
My troops did fairly well against his troops, but they could not deal with his tanks / chimera, and I didn't have anything heavy nearby that could support them (poor placement on my part).
My winged Tyrant did only so so (dice luck), and then got taken down by statistics of shots being fired, and of course the heavy firepower of the unharmed tanks.
What should I have done? (within 1000 points). I pretty much have any unit type I would need - I just need some nudges in the right direction as to what I should be fielding...
PS: Thanks to all of you for the earlier advice I got on taking on Tau
