Welcome to Librarium Online!
I haven't received my Battleforce yet <:> so I'm not sure about building the Hormogaunts as Spinegaunts... When you buy the boxed gaunt set (or Battleforce), does it include enough of all the weapon types to go around, or will I have to order tons of Bitz to get enough spinefists to equip the whole brood? I'd rather field 7 Spinegaunts that 5 Hormogaunts anyday
Battleforce cosists of 16 hormagaunts, 16 gaunts with guns(spinefist, devourers, fleshborers),ripper swarms and 3 warriors. You'll get tons of needed and unneeded stuff.
Box set has 8 hormagaunts and 8 gaunts with guns ( You'll have all gun options inside). But if want to have ALL gaunts in the box or battleforce as spinegaunts, this is impossible, becouse of to few spinefists.
Green Tide will consume You all!
You would only need to buy one plastic spru per box. The one sprue has all of the ranged weapons on it that you will need, or I am sure you could find a fellow nid player that has some that they did not use.
Okay, thanks guys/gals, but I messed up the first email, I meant to say I will be building the Termagaunts as Spinegaunts. I think I will make the 16 Hormogaunts, since I will probably field them against some armies, but I wanted to make sure that there would be 16 spinefists in there. Termagaunts just don't seem to be worth the 2 extra points over the Spinegaunts.
Here's another question, how many Venom Cannons will I get
In the Battleforce, You get enough Spinefists to arm 21 models with Spinefists. Total amount of Biomorph sprues is 7, each sprue has 3xSFist Left, 3x SFist Right.
You only get 1 VCannon, since the BForce only contains one Monstrous sprue.
