Take lots of artillery (600 to 900 points). Form a strong defensive line in
front of the artillery, then pound him to hell. You will then him put in
between a rock and hard place, if he stays back he gets pounded by the
artillery, if advances he faces marines on overwatch. Also make
sure you have at least 45cm between detachments in your defence line
and terrain, this will prevent his aspect warriors with jump backs
being able to attack your detacments without being fire upon. You
will of course need to ensure that your detachment have units that can
fire 45cm or other detachments nearby which can cover them.

Remember your artillery is excellent for dealing with his pop up units
because it can do prep fire, artillery is also excellent for dealing
with WE of vaul because artillery fires before WEs.
