Nid Swarm VS Bike elite
Hey guys need a hand. I've got a game with my nids against an all bike marine army tomorrow and I need some advice as I've never played a bike list with my nids.
Mates list looks something like this.
Avenger, null zone
4 storm shields
3 lightning claws
2 plasma guns
1 thunder hammer
and a partrige on a pair tree
3x bike squads
2x melta gun
Full squad 8+ attack bike
3x attack bike squads
2x attack bikes
2x multi meltas
(he will probably also run a techmarine on bike to bolster his home objective)
Now I don't want to tailor my list but I'm not sure which of the two varients bellow will work better.
First one operates on the proviso that he has no real template weapons and if he wants to shoot at my big guys with melta he wont be shooting bolters at the little guys and vice-verse. iut also operates on the concept of force multiplying and turning those gaunts into some fierce little *******s by giving them the right buffs.
All up thats 2k points 80+ guants and 32 T6 wounds, seems pretty solid to me especially against an infantry list, mostly I'm only really worried about the command squad as everything else should die just like marines to poison or S6.
So any thoughts?
I could drop down to 60 or so gaunts and take the doom as a distraction/counter Deathstar but I don't think it will be needed here.
