Tell him to try a 'Beta Strike' army its the new black.

Basically you try to go second (ie if you win the roll off choose to go second) your not interested in stealing the initiative. Place your entire army in reserves always have an astropath (never an officer of the fleet you want him on second turn). He gets two turns with nothing on the board to shoot or hand to hand while his deepstrikers and hopefully his reserves come on to an empty table. Your turn two everything turns up on a 3+ so quite a lot of your army rolls on (or for more fun outflanks (rerolling entry point thanks to astropath) or deepstrikes). You can tinker with the basic set up to include a bait unit (say 5 ratlings) set up somewhere gives your opponent something to do and helps him forget about the outflankers and reserves ( I suggest looking at alraheem).

The other alternative is allied inquisitor and 2 mystics (35pts ish total) that allow free shots at units deepstriking within a rolled radius of the inquisitor by any one unit within 12".
