i'v got a hive tyrant and a box of gaunts. they are all painted up. should i get the battleforce, some biovores and old one eye cos that's what everyone else is sayin i should get because i'm not going to exceed 1500pts
Pint them. I can't emphasise that enough. The number of gaunts involved means that if you don't paint them staright away, they just start to pile up while you work on the good stuff.
I hope your army is the colour of a spray-paint. My horde is dark angles green with lighter green (DA mixed with bleached bone and a spot of tentacle pink) for the armour, goblin green highlights.
8 colours a model sounds daunting, but it looks good if you put the time in.
I would suggest tyrant guards and stealers first.. though it's much better to buy the battle force, since that was what I did...
I'm using the standard color theme myself.. can be found in the codex... it's awesome!
More gaunts, some warriors, a carnifex and biovores should be your next models. Eventually you can add zoanthropes or gargoyles, but these aren't necessary (especially garoyles are great though). You will probably have a good amounth of rippers then, field these too. Leaping ripper swarm mutants with rending claws rock!
have u thought about what kind of army u like?
and don't forget we can't have more than 3 biovores... (lol, but I bought 6 of those... =P)
U could play over 2000 pts and take 2 divisions
2 divisions? What do u mean? Aren't the biovores limited to 3?
At 2000 or more points there is an option to use two force organisation charts, basically you play two armies which are allied. In this case you can have up to six biovores - but remember, your opponent also can field six whirlwinds...
might hurt... and throw in like ~12 typhoon speeders..
Or play guard and have 6 basalisks.
Or tau and have 6 hammerheads.
Whatever army you play, it got good stuff.
