    Biovores question

    I'm planning on using biovores in my army but im slightly confused by the wording of the stuff about there shooting, it says that each vore shoots one spore mine for each vore in the brood, so that means if i got three vores im shooting nine spores, three from each one. second do i test for each spore that im firing or do i just launch them all from that vore with only one test to hit. third do i pay for each mine individually, so i buy 3 bioacid mines the cost of all three mines and the vore would be 85pts?

    Each brood of biovores fires one spore mine per biovore, so if you have three biovores in a brood, and each biovore can shoot one spore mine, you fire three spore mines at a target.

    As PoptartsNinja said. One per Biovore.

    There is no test to hit. They're fired as a Barrage weapon. Check on page 31 and 32 in the Warhammer 40K Rule book on how to work these out.

    The cost of the brood will be X*(Y+Z).

    X = number of Biovores you want in the brood.

    Y = The printed cost of the Biovore.

    Z = The printed cost of the mine you are using.

    And to be a little more specific to cauin. If you paid for 2 types of mines, you choose which one before the game starts, and are stuck using that, but can't swap the points elsewhere. ignore this, as it's senseless babble I pulled from out of thin air.

    The rest of the nid codex is great, but they need to faq them to be used separately. That would fix my only complaint with them.

    I thought you had to choose which mine your brood uses. You can't just buy all 3 types and then choose which one to use before the game starts. Maybe I'm wrong, but don't recall it in my Codex.

    That one is easily answered by reading the Unit Entry in your Codex.

    P. 45 of the codex.

    " All biovores in the same brood must choose the same kind of spore mine."

    Doesn't say you can't purchase all three for each biovore and choose which to fire.

    ok found the answer

    ty

    yeh its the line before that that confused me, cause it says "the type of spore mine availabl to each biovore must be chosen from the following list

    reading that, i got the impression that they could make their own choices, then i hit the next one, so i got a little confused

    or maybe its just my bad grammar kicking in =/
