Michael and I played a game this afternoon. 1850 points and he ran his Tyranids while I did my Eldar with a small ally contingent of Tau. We ended up rolling Purge the Alien with diagonal deployment, which was probably the worst scenario for Michael’s Tyranids. My list had a lot of shooting while his had pretty much none. The Farseers also gave him some serious problems with psychic powers.
The main issue with my list was that it’s kind of boring to play. Cast a bunch of psychic powers and then unload shots on enemy. I’m going to have to modify a bit to get some movement back in.
The highlight unit for me was the Harlequins with Eldrad attached. They finished off two squads of Genestealers, a Tervigon and a bunch of Hormogaunts. They can cause some serious hurt with the right psychic powers and 40 rending attack on the charge is really scary for most people. I will have to eventually pick up the actual models, which scares me a little as they look like they will be really hard to paint.
