Yep as a Marine player the first thing that popped into my head when I heard about the new Nids was Sternguard with combi-flamers and using hellfire rounds they'll be able to take care of any beastie that comes there way.
Honour Guard are also really good at taking down the big and slow Nids but Stealers do own them soo a situational choice I guess.
Vulkan list should do well especially if flamer and melta heavy.
My Tac squads usually have meltagun, missile Launcher, powerfist and combi-flamer so they should be all set as is.
I also have a thing for speeders with mm & hf and dreadnaughts with mm & hf both of which have made swarm nids very wary.
Libbies I agree will be useful as well even if just for the hood but if you can ista gak a fex all the better.
Vindicators will also be useful as well as the whirlwind for obvious reasons.
TH/ss termies will also be good for tying up the big uglies and keeping them from wrecking havoc with the rest of the army.
Still all in all not going to be easy to stop them (always did have proplems with heavy fex list before) but not impossible.
Anyways my 2 cents
After a long campain behind enemy lines Brother Sergeant Telion was put under Chapter scrutiny to test the purity of mind and body.
During his final interview he was asked "do you feel anything when you kill a Heritic".
He simply shrugged and replied "A slight recoil"
The interview finished shortly after.
