Question: Was he using the plague bearers as lessor daemons from the current codex or was he using the old codex?
I ask this because genestealers should have eaten lesser daemons for breakfast. I'm not sure how he dropped carnies with them either. They would only wound on a 6 and the carni would have been saving 2/3 of thos wounds. This assumes the carnies didn't have extended carapace and the toughness upgrade which would have made them even harder to wound.
There's no way I would expect a broodlord to get laid low by a lowly lesser daemon. Either the dice were against the nids or something weird was going on.

I got the jump on his Plague bearers with an assault squad lead by a chaplain in our last game and killed them all in a couple of turns. Mind you it was the Chaplain and a Sergent with a Powerfist that did most of the killing.
I'm using the rules from the old chaos codex the new one doesn't have plaguebears, plaguebears 16 pionts with plague sword 31 piont a piece x 11= 308. The new deamon codex just came out a month ago. Matt said I would need to use the new rules for the tournament though. The new rules suck my army isn't even 1,500 piont any more.
