How much did you have to pay for all this?
KrewL-RaiN Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011
I have lost track, probaly quite a bit, and I am still working on more. Darned addictive hobby lol.

I mean, I'm thinking about getting into Tyranids as my starting army (just because they're awesome), but I can't imagine how much a newbie like me would have to pay before getting an army he can actually use.

Tyranids are a harder army to play, and some of the important units like Tervigons have no model (rumors going around about a nid second wave might include a terv kit). For a start I would recommend:

HQ: Tervigon (Our most solid HQ, can make one out of a fex) or Hive Tyrant... fex and Tyrant kit are aroundish the same price.
Elite: 2-3 Hive Guard (these are metal models = expensiver. These are our best anti light armour units)

Box of Termagants (might need more if your running a Tervigon)
Box of Genestealers
Box of Hormagaunts

That should give you a solid start, and if you want a heavy choice a Trigon would do nicely.

A Tyranid Battleforce is also a good start (we liked the older one better :<). You get a good chunk of core troop choices, but you get no HQ in it. You could make one of the Warriors a Prime.

Thanks, as soon as I get enough money, I'll try to get some, unless we need to spend it on something more important, thanks for your help.
