At the beginning of battle (although it does have a massive disadvantage) is it possible at all to field spore mines or does there have to be 1-3 biovores present to 'vomit' them across the battlefield?
In the codex it says they come free with biovores, but in the rule book it has them as a troop entry (im not sure if I can say points values or not, but it is on pg. 192). In the codex it says nothing about having them at the start or not.
This is a last chance effort to find the answer, so nay help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

Following the Codex:
If the scenario uses the Preliminary Bombardment rules, You follow the rules detailed on page 7, right hand column, "Preliminary Barrage". You do not need Biovores to be eligible for Preliminary Barrage. These Spore Mines are free, ie. You do not spend any points on them.
Biovores shoot only in the Shooting phase, as normal. You will need to pay the cost of the chosen mine type for each of the Biovores You choose the type for. You only need to pay the price once per the Biovore, it will have enough Spore mines to last the battle.
You can't spend points on individual, free-floating Spore mines.
Forget the rulebook Tyranid army list. It doesn't exist.
