If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

Stratagems on Deck:
Digestive Denial 2cp [Great for limiting access to cover saves]
Metabolic Overdrive 1cp
Invisible Hunter 1cp
Rapid Regeneration 2cp
The Deepest Shadow 1cp [Amazing vs Psykers in range. Spore Mines greatly aid spread the effect]
Pathogenic Slime 2cp [Big monsters enjoy this stratagem]
Single-Minded Annhilation 2cp [Tyranid Warriors love this stratagem]
Caustic Blood 1cp
Feeder Tendrils 1cp [Lictors can replenish my cp as needed]
Overrun 1cp
Grisly Feast 1cp

Game Plan: Gun them down at range and let them come to me. Lictors and Ripper Swarms go for objectives everything else holds their ground and shoots with re-rolls to hit.

Other considerations: I strongly considered venomthropes to help my units hold their ground but I feel the points investment would take away from other units that I want to field so in this case I decided the best defense is a stronger offense.
