Greetings all!

I 'm a fairly new 40k player (never played WFB) and new around this place, and i recently bought my first serious army,namely DE. I got a decently sized starting force (around 850 points) and as the title suggest,i up for some friendly battles against nids Wink. Does anyone has some previous experience regarding fighting them? Or any suggestions about tactics and strategy against them?

I read a lot myself about army lists,WWP use,the "pain token" mechanic and basic tactics. So my theorethical is kinda there,but i don't have the experience on the battlefield regarding the game. (played some matches with Tau and Orc,wasn't really my thing Smile ).

Thanks for reading and i hope i can find some devious wisdom whom other raiders like to share with me cheers



EDIT: ps: i am playing 5th atm,so i prefer to hear about suggestions regarding that ruleset but help about 6th would also be very welcome Wink

I'd suggest getting some Venoms. Tyranids really don't like being shot to death by poison.

Yo Mumra - welcome to the dark city! How models are in each of your units bro? If your wych unit has 10 then I would suggest splitting them into two smaller units and use a Venom dedicated transport for each of these. Alternatively you could split your warriors and keep your troops inside the Venom for LOTS of poisoned death (Tyranic monstrous creatures do NOT like poison very much)

Warriors and wychs are each 10 models a unit . Do i have to worry for something particular? Like their mines?

poison is your best friend... ever... in life... vs nids.

We are arguably the strongest army to take on nids, due to the proliferation of poison in our army

Welcome! Poison is awesome vs nids! My best friend also plays tyranids and we have played each other regularly since 4th edition when his nidzilla put the fear of god into my imperial guard! Now the tables have turned and he cried in dismay as I took down his hive tyrant with a turn of splinter fire muahahahaha! Stay loose and mobile and keep shooting!

Split the warrior squads up into 5 man w/ blaster in venoms. That will destroy nids. Also give your Archon some weapon of sorts, like a agoniser (helps agianst the big ones with the 4+ to wound) and put him in with the wyches.

So i'm buying 4 Venoms,and dumping the raiders? Also he keeps telling me that his spore mines will spell ruin before me Smile . I'm equipping my Archon with a agonazir already forgot to post it...


EDIT: Money is something of a problem atm,so getting the venoms is not viable for me (at least not for a while)

okay, nids are split into 3 groups.........the horde weaklings, the weird elites, and the mad godzillas.................im not going into poison as everyone has covered that......note their army is vehicle-less.........meaning that the razorwing jetfighter is godly against them......their armour is usually pretty crap anyway. ditch the lance.......raiders into venoms, and you should be able to out manoeuvre them

Raiders are still good but yeah venoms murder nids and thanks to the new artillery rules, they also drop Thunderfire cannons (the bane of hellions!)! But I run a mix of 2 venoms and 1 or 2 disintegrator raiders in my lists, backed up by a 3 dark lance ravager and find I dont have many problems dropping monsters and tanks.

Dark Eldar versus 'Nids is still pretty one sided. The biggest single strength of 'Nids is an abundance of T6 beasties, and you don't care about that because of poisoned weapons. I'd say your current list will do well, simply keep your distance and torrent them down with massed splinter fire.

Avoid assaulting the biggest beasties, just hammer them with Lances and splinter fire.
