Unending Swarm, heavily utilising gaunts, rippers and smaller bioforms.

>The skies blacken as Hive Fleet Molech descend upon a world.
>Any defenders unlucky enough to face them have but two options: kill every single tyranid, or be consumed.
>To say attacks come as waves is an understatement, more that the Tyranids come on as a tsunami of flesh, a tide rising, biting and clawing, with no rest, hesitation or halt of bodies thrown in an unstoppable constant rush.
>Eventually the defenders, no matter how dug in, prepared and supplied, are overwhelmed.
>Guns overheat and jam, simply run out of ammunition or energy, or those firing them are too tired to effectively fight.
>While the smaller beasts keep up the preassure, other bioforms attack in the distractions, ambushing, infiltrating, ramming through barriers, hammering away at range, dripping acid from the skys, blasting with warpfire...all the horror a Hive Fleet can through are still present, just hidden behind a curtain of a.million disposable bodies, leaving not a moment for defenders to spare to react to them.

>he is a proud cuck
Then you are disgrace of Nid player, you pathetic faggot. Nids are the greatest, most powerful threat to the galaxy so you better act like it fuck to play some sissy faction like Imperial Cucks that is more your style.
