Take your point. I had in mind the Eldar when I made "wondered aloud" as to how one might take
down large disrupt detachments. You see, I'm not really happy about just writing off a Tyranid
detachment with 10+ biovores as cheesy and pretending the strategy isn't really there to make
the game work. This sort of strategy is exactly how IMHO a race like the Tyranid would fight.
Lots of disrupting bizarre attacks which would paralyse the enemy whilst the real fighters
could close in.

Surely there has to be some effective deterrment against them. Big long range guns seems like
a first thought. I just bought some Squat Goliath Mega-cannons to bolster my four Squat
Thunderer stands into an actual detachment - what about something like that?
