Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have been pondering on how to create a good balanced nids army. I started out with one army deal ( 32 gaunts, 12 stealers, 3 rippers, 3 warriors) and ended up with a pretty good core unit. After that I have invested in 1 HT, 12 Gargoyls, 1 biowore and 1 Zoanthrope. Using all my models I deploy 1000 points.
I'm going to expand my force pretty soon, and came up with the idea of buying another army deal. If I want more gaunts in my army I get the army deal for the same price as two boxes of gaunts. What you guys think? Another army deal or something else?

As for other pointers, I find Biovores best when fielded in multiples, minimum 2, preferably 3. Just one will be a bit iffy... Barely more than an occasional annoyance.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
I also think you should buy another battleforce. I started with one battleforce, expanded with tyrant, fex, genes, gargs, lictors, zoaz, red terror, guards and some extra warriors.
I found out that I have to few fodder bugs, so I`l buy another force.
