    24 Spinegaunts(w/ hive node) 150 pts | $100* US, $30# US

    24 Firegaunts(w/ hive node) 274 pts | $100* US, $30# US

    Fast Attack


    Heavy Support

    It would be nice if you could tell us how many points your're aiming for. I'm guessing about 1000 points for this list, maybe 1500?

    yeah, a points cost would help.

    you will need more gaunts IMO, if this is a 1500 list. I usually field around 2 x 24 spinegaunts and 2 x 20 init. leapers. Then adding on 2 x 9 genestealers gives me around 50% troops. Fiddling around with the numbers I usuallly decrease the ammount of troops to fit in the nasties I need for a specific enemy, ie for marines I add Zoanthorpes, CC warriors for horde take more biovores not tomention the TMCs.

    On a not totally unrelated subject Im getting witch hunters for xmas, as I feel my nids are pretty much done for the moment until they are all fully painted then I will return to adding to the swarm, possibly with the creation of gargoyles...

    i think i&#39;m getting WH for christmas too. i know my brother got my present at GW but not sure which army. he says Tyranids but i have a feeling he&#39;s lying (like usual).

    back on topic, IMO gaunts in great numbers are not necessary, but that&#39;s my Seeding Swarm strategy where most of them come back. if a normal &#39;nids army then maybe a lot more gaunts.

    Looks pretty good to me... Except that I would also suggest taking more Leaping Gaunts. I usually strive to field at least two broods of Leaping Gaunts in a game, they make it considerably easier to engage enemy in CC quickly which helps other creatures immensely.

    &#39;Stealers are here...

    18 genestealers
    --- That&#39;s 6 from BoM and 12 from the Battleforce or Genestealer box. =)

    Correct, here I am buying the battleforce, a tyrant, 3 zoanthropes, and a carnifex by the way. This is &#036;235 and I simply don&#39;t have the resources to get any more so should I not get the carnifex or something to get 16 more gaunts or something? And my gaunts got wasted by my friends land raider and grey knights so that is why I am not getting many gaunts. I am not really aiming for a points army, but I suppose I should.........(does 500 pts list)(does 1000 pts list) Ok, so it looks like I will be making a 1000 point list......(edits first post), OK, theirs my 1000 point list. Now how is it? TY&#33;



    EDIT: Buying different stuff
