I have trouble getting my Ymgarls in to assault because usually there isn't area terrain close enough to my opponent, that he hasn't filled already (usually with 24 platoons of guardsmen). Here's my solution:
Place an aegis defense line right outside his deployment zone, right in the middle. I then field a horde list, and march it towards him. If he's silly enough to occupy the entire Aegis Defense zone (area terrain) then that's a bunch of guys who are that much closer to the zerg. If he leaves it vacant, I can use the defense line as cover for the zerg on its way across the board (as long as I leave enough room for the Ymgarls). Whenever they show up, hopefully turn 2, I can move them straight into assault.
In subsequent games, my opponents will likely expect the same trick again, and probably won't deploy anywhere near it. I can spend ## points on the Aegis defense line, not bring any Ymgarls and restrict my opponent's deployment options.
OK, Hiveminds, what do you think?

Well so much for that idea.

I was wondering why the collective Hive mind was so quiet...
