Welcome to Librarium Online!
i choose deathgaunts just cause i like all the shots they get it's better to give them toxin sacs too, so it's at least S3.

It's a tough choice between termagaunt and deathgaunt.
The option of S5 shots is amusing though. People are like, 'You're nids! Your basic troops can't have S5 shots!'
I use spinegaunts most because they're cheap. I love it when my opponent takes out a brood from a few squad shooting and you get to say, "That was 60 points well spent " I wouldn;t underestimate their shooting ability either. I took 4 out of 5 imortals out in one shooting phase (ok a lot of luck but it was funny considering one imortal costs like the same as the spinegaunts brood).
Love spinegaunts, always have simply because I almost never shoot the guns unless I'm close enough I don't have to fleet. IMO, the more gaunts, the merrier.
I like the idea of the s5 shot gaunts though. Have a gun as strong as the tau:w00t: but with the range 12" I'm not sure if I would ever do it.

I take the termegaunts. There 7 points with S4 and re-rolls to wound and since they are so cheap i have pleanty of other room for more important things. Also when i play I used to play with deathgaunts my oppnents knew how many shots they had so they would usually kill my deathgaunts before they even did anything but when i play termegaunts my oppent overlooks them i before he knows it they already took out a good portion of his squad and are assulting it.
Funkwall, I have some good new for you,
Termagaunts only cost 6pts naked
That's even more pluck for you buck eh?
i whould go with temagaunts. oh and by the way, my terms cost 7 points cause i give em flesh hooks.

I see it as the more numbers I have, the better. Spinegaunts are amazing...at just 5 points a piece, I can have 40 of the suckers for just 200 points. Then, I get 60 hormagaunts for 600 points and thats already 100 gaunts for just 800 points. The remaining 1200 points are used for a mixture of synapse (zoanthropes and winged tyrant, no doubt) and definitely some carnifexes. Numbers are always my priority, so spinegaunts are my choice.
