Hey my name is ben and i started playin WH40K bout 2 months ago. i first bout catachens and imperial guard stuff cuz i thought they looked cool, but they really suck!!!!!!!! So i was lookin to start a tyranid army, i only got 3 warriors now but i dont know wat to buy next???????????/
Lots and lots of gaunts. buy a couple of boxes to start with and then you should mail order the sprues on their own, depending on what you want, a shooting or close combat orientated force. A hive tyrant is almost essential, and some lictors. Allways have lictors!!! Either a zoanthrope or a biovore should round it off, but for heavily-armoured stuff like marines you need a carnifex.
hope this helps
look on ebay for someone selling off their army. I picked up just about everything I need for around $150. If you buy retail you're going to get raped.
2 Hive tyrants
THat's about all I use. I proxy some warriors for Guards at times.
I don't use Genestealers very often because they die so quickly. If I do use them I put them in a Malefactor (which you can pick up on ebay as well). It carries 11 genestealers, has 5 wounds and 4 attacks in close combat and is a Monstrous creature. A Malefactor is MUCH better than a Land Raider (for marines) and moves 9 assualts 9!!!!!!
