Damn isn't maugan ra a costly bastard... i'd drop a 15 guardians and take something more fancy, like warp spiders or maybe (for fluff reason) sriking scorpions

Don't have Warp spiders or scorpions. Maugen Ra is a wooping 195 points but he can dish out some serious firepower for one Guy. @neferhet

Well shooty is what I have, and some pie plates of different sizes. Yeah, bring some hammers and claws and get more shooty! We might wither them down before they reach the hammers. @Meldon

What do people think is the better options against nids? Maugen Ra or the Avatar? Equal points but one CC monster or a shooty monster? A third option would be a second farseer to give a better chance at Eldritch Storm at 4 WC, which I think would be a treat in this game. That would give some more points to random upgrades or a small seercouncil. @Sethis @neferhet @Meldon

I can't see why you would go toe-to-toe with tyranids in melee. Maugan will help you a lot.
A lone avatar in melee (basically unsupported, becuse you have nothing that can really help him in melee) can be tarpitted by 30 gants or exploded by a couple of zoantropes... also, you will be able to reach melee in turn 2 at the very best. Maugan can be protected by other shooters around him to give ablative wounds and will start reaping from turn 1.

How does Shadow In the Warp function? Will it be difficult to use witchfire against the nids?

It's -3 Ld for a psyker within 12" from a model who has Shadow of the Warp special rule.
So no effect to Witchfire but they might have quite many psykers on the board for the Deny Witch rolls.
