Got my first game against Genestealers coming up in a few weeks against a friend. I haven't faced the codex before, and haven't seen the army on the table since early Index play, so I'm hoping for some insight from people who've had experience with the army.

Detachment limitations and Rule of Three aren't an issue in this case, I'm just wanting a victory, as he's been tabling most of his opponents with the dex, apparently.

Thanks, all!

What I found essential against GSC was big blobs of grotesques backed by a vexator mask.
GSC have some nasty units which can arrive from reserve and reliably charge, and wipe out whatever they attack. If you wrap your squishy stuff in a big unit of grotesques where everyone is close to the vexator mask, you can strike first and usually kill the charging unit before they attack.

If you can change your list, try getting a second haem to hold the vexator mask, and maybe some more grotesques. Shining spears might be ok, but they are vulnerable to the units charging from reserve.
