Welcome to Librarium Online!
This is my first army. i want a balanced force for my first few games and then i can decide how to expand from there. so far i have 8 spinegaunts and 8 hormy's with nothing on them. should i add any biomorphs anywhere? what should i buy next? i am planning on white skin, green plate and black claw color scheme, what do you think?
thanks for the help in building my first warhammer army. i hope to play som 500 pt games vs some friends and then we'll all expand to 1000 pts.
I think the next thing that you want to get is some Warriors and more gaunts. Gaunts are pretty much the core of the army and you will most likely be using a lot of them. Warriors help keep your gaunts in synapse so they are pretty good to have. I would say pick up at least 1 box of warriors and 2 boxes of gaunts for your 500 pts. For 1000 another box of warriors for sure and then you can pretty much go anywhere you want depending on your playing style.
for the second 500 i would also recomend more warriors , and most deffinatley, genestealers and/or raveners. heh by the way is there a spell check on this board
For your first 500 points I would go for hormagaunts, spinegaunts, and warriors. The warriors should have leaping and preferably cc based. If you want to try out genestealers this size of game might be too small, but you might want to check them out.
For your next 500 fill out your gaunt squads and add one or two more. Get another box of warriors (again cc with leaping) and get some stealers. If you have some points left over you could try a broodlord to lead your army. The BL and stealers are IMO the best nid units and you should try including them in 1000+ games.
Once you reach 1500 points its really up to you. I would get a carnifex and/or tyrant to add some MC flavour and possibly some thropes or raveners to aid you in tank busting. At this point you should have already found your playing style and shouldn't need much more help in choosing your own unique 2000 point nid army.
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!
My first box was warriors. then my local store has a "bitz bin" for each army. i spent alot of time digging to get hormies in a large quantity. i bought so many (80) that i dont think i need more unless i'm playing stupid big battle or just a really silly battle and that is just hormies.
