The doom of malan'ti took afew out but was killed. In the ends I surrendered with a remaining instinctive gaunts (4). It was a solid strategy, but was foiled by the lucky shooting, be because the swarmlord would have killed the other squad if it got into combat, which would have been next turn. Anyway it was an enjoyable and close game.
Did the Swarmlord really need help killing a Destroyer Lord? He makes his opponent WS 1 for the majority of the time, and with Str 6 and ID'ing weapons he usually minces anything he touches. Saying this, I would, more often than not, use Paroxysm to disable a Warrior Squad for a turn.

You probably should have swamped him more, leaving him less time to shoot - bury his Warriors under a tide of Gaunts, hence my suggestion of a Tervigon. 30 Gaunts? Annoying, potentially dangerous. 30 Gaunts with FC and Poison 4+ (And re-rolling Hits with Swarmlord)? Lethal.
