Welcome to Librarium Online!
The title pretty much says it all, how many swarms do you run?
WHen i run them (at 1500 and 2250) i use 2 bases. There is never much point going more than that, 3 at most, otherwise its a huge points sink (imo).

2-3 bases. Pretty optimum cause it gives you some extra room to take wounds and still get cross fire kills and not be too many points. Plus they still kick pretty much every war machine crews rear ends.
Do not question the dice gods for their wrath is swift and terrible.
I usually do 2, but have had lots of success with 3 as well, they are fantastic for holding up large units if you can get the rear flank off.
Ok, looks like 2-3 is what I should keep. I just won 10 off ebay and I knew that was too many, but wasn't sure how much too many.
Thanks for the replies guys.
I'll be damned, I was going to out bid you on that one but I figured 10 would be too many
hah, wanna buy a few off me, I have 10 now on their way to me.
I like to take only 1 in 1000pts, it fills up a troops choice in the most cost effective way allowing me more points to take the more effective special choices from the list.
I use ICFB on the one swarm since 45 pts is not too much to lose in 1000pts if it doesn't turn up.
I go for lone wizards or try for a flank charge on a unit of Archers.
Finally getting round to finshing my Tallarn Imperial Guard Army (2K)
Everything else has been sacrificed on the Altar of eBay...
I take as many as I can.
I've been known to have 5 bases and most of the time have at least 3.
They've routed so many units I've lost count, and ran through half a skaven army by themselves.
Love those poisoned hits.
