Welcome to Librarium Online!
In the last edition I converted all of my Termagants into Gargoyles so now I need to get more as I tinker around with different lists. My play group is very social so proxiying isn't really a problem, but I still want to own what I am likely to play. How many termagants do you own or like to own? And how many should I own. The list I am tinkering with has 40 in the list and 2 tervigons to spawn more as the game progresses.
I have 52 for normal units (gathered from 3 Plastic Sets and one Battleforce), and have another 48 ready for spawning by my Tervigon
A friend of mine has what he refers to as a "Bucket o' 'Gaunts", which numbers somewhere in the 190 region, so he could build a list involving 90 gaunts and 5 tervigons It worked too, although mainly by covering the entire board so his opponent had nowhere to move to and couldn't get to the objectives!
I think a good rule of thumb is 30 gants per tervigon. That includes a unit of 10 to deploy as Troops to make your Tervigon Troops as well. I happen to have two Tervigons and 62 gants. I've never yet needed more than about 45 or 48 of them, so feel pretty good about where I'm at. (Some get killed off, then get reused in successive spawnings, and so on.)
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
