Welcome to Librarium Online!
im new to collecting tyranids. i bought the battleforce and am wondering what else i should buy.
can anyone give me some suggestions
the codex, a hive tyrant and another battleforce. then take it in any direction from there. there are plenty of posts on here to help you decide on specific units, styles, tactics, and ideas for painting. check the other races forums with posts that have anything to do with tyranids also.
Not the codex atm, download it in PDF format instead. The codex and battleforce is outof production if the "No longer avalible" status on GW's US site is correct. Wich means that within 6months or so there will be a new box and codex. The box right now consists of great units and would be a good supplement to any nid army regardless of how the new codex will be. But you might be stuck with units you won't use if the new box carries some new units or a better mix.
I'm in the same possition as you, as in that i've bought one battleforce. I'm gonna wait until we get news on what to expect from a potential new codex/battleforce.
actually i already have the codex i forgot to say i had it
Yeah, I wish I had checked here before I bought my codex last week. Now that I know though I'm going to hold off on buying any models until we find out what is going on/the new stuff is out.
Tomb Scorpion Kill Counter: Gotrek Gurnisson, Empire Cannon Crew=3, Blood Knights=2, Saurus Cavalry=5, Saurus Warriors=3, Razordons=3, Skink warriors=7, Jezzails=8, Poison Wind Globadiers=10, Warp Lightning Cannon=1
i wouldnt buy the codex. We're getting a new one early next year. In fact i'd urge you to hold off collecting for a while. Wait and see how things are after the new models and codex are released
Sir we have a lock on the Hive tyrant.
NO! SHOOT THAT SPORE MINE! OH GOD, ITS GOING BACKWARDS!
if someone helps you, give them rep.
well the flipside to that is we'll expect the current boxed sets to be re-packaged and repriced, especially with the battleforce being pulled from the shelves. this could see some of those better deals going out the window
i don't think you'd be wrong to invest in another battleforce box or maybe the gaunt and stealer boxes. there's still some safe choices he can get to build his army at a decent price now, that will serve him now and when the codex gets revised
I agree, the current box has the best level of usefullness outof all the other battleforces. Just make an estimate on how much money you save when buying the battleforce instead of the units on theirown.
At everythings current price i save about 36$, 25,5€, 22,35£. Wich is a fair bit of cash but not so much that i can't pass on the deal just to wait and see what the new box brings.
As it is right now, if you need to get the battleforce, go ahead and do so. The models in there are great and will still be usuable even in the newer edition.
My philosophy is don't deprive yourself out of some great gaming experience just because "there's something out there coming out soon." Just like in computers, there's always a better video card or CPU processor coming out, with larger hard drives or more memory. If you wait, you'll always be waiting because as soon as the video card you've been drooling over comes out, another faster VGA will be coming out in just a couple of months later. If you really need a computer, then just get one.
If you really want to start or expand your nids, go ahead and get it. It won't go obsolete anytime soon.
