I picked up my first nid battlefore yesterday. This morning I did a thorough examination of the spru's to try and figure out what order to assemble things when I noticed some odd things. My battleforce was supposed to have 2 hormagaunts and 2 termagaunt spru's. Instead I had three termagaunts and 1 hormagaunt spru. I also was missing the Warrior spru that had the venom cannon on it.
At first I was annoyed, I called my local game shop (not a GW shop, but an authorized reseller) and asked them. They said they could do a refund and order another set, but recommended I call GW directly and I'm glad I did. They're sending me the missing spru's and as a bonus I get to keep the extra spru.
So I'm just curious if anyone else has had any problems with the battle force box set?
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
i once boughd a box of firewarriors and just after i started assembling them i noticed the drones were missing. My store isn't a gw one, but nevertheless i got to exchange it and checked it at the spot. I also saw 2 boxes of a crississuit being filled with the stealthsuit sprues.
as for the exchange policy, it's commen that they send you the missing parts and that you keep the old ones too. i even read here that they managbed to mix up twice with powerclaws for an ork boss and in the end he ended up with several complete sets, no questions asked.
it's not unheard of. There are similar topics here about that
Several years ago I bought four boxed sets of Gaunts and decided to assemble a brood of thirty-two Hormagaunts which is all the Hormagaunts that four boxed sets provides. I found it was taking an very long time to trim all of them. Triming thirty-two Hormagaunts should take some time but I decided to count them. I had not actually counted them because I had four boxed sets and each one should contain eight Hormagaunts giving me my brood of thirty-two. I was rather surpirsed to discover I had forty Hormagaunts, two extra sprues.

P.s There is no sprue for warriors with venom cannon. There is however a mc sprue,
I had a box of gaunts that was missing a hormagaunt sprue but had two warrior sprues in it. I didn't bother calling since as it turns out I was in need of an extra warrior and I felt it was a better deal than getting a hormagaunt sprue.
