Now, we're trying to avoid the whole "let's see what internets says is good" thing, and rather think fresh and out of our own little meta, so to speak. So I thought I'd share a little trick we've come up with.

Then, take a Harbinger of Despair with a Nightmare Shroud and either place it in a Night Scythe or give him a Veil of Darkness to get him close to the enemy. The Nightmare Shroud lets you force a Morale Check on a unit up to 18" away, and it doesn't require a roll to hit or a Psychic Test. It's simply automatic, and you don't have to worry about Snap Shots or anything. As long as the Psyker Battle Squad got their power off, you should see the enemy's most valued unit run away like crazy! (at least 97,2% of the time)
Sure, it doesn't work on Fearless or embarked units. So what? Fearless units you just nuke with Soulstorm and vehicles aren't very hard to get rid of for Gauss-wielding tin cans.
This trick works great against some of the nasty deathstars people like to take. Unfortunately it doesn't work against Draigowing, as the big man is fearless. But against Nob Bikers and units like it, it should work just fine.
