I would like to know how much heads with Feeder Tendrils are in the genestealer box.

i would like to get a cthulhu spawn brood for my Space Hulk, nothing different rules wise, just to show off :)

I believe there's one per sprue. 2 bodies per sprue - 8 bodies total - thus making 4 Feeder Tendrils per box.

I think... someone confirm.

Two.... just 2.

well that sucks.

2...what were they thinking

They are easy to do with greenstuff though - so if you really want to its do-able.

Give less so they have to buy more.

Honestly, I don't know what they were thinking. There aren't enough heads to model any sort of full-brood option such as flesh-hooks either.

The bits sell for a ton seperately as well. I have managed to collect enough through trades to make 32 feeder tendril stealers but that was a lot of work.

It is possible to make them out of green-stuff as someone else earlier posted. It all depends on how well you can sculpt with green-stuff I guess.

You don't have to model *all* the stealers with the upgrade, half of them is acceptable as far as wysiwyg is concerned.

Keep in mind that it was relatively recently (5th ed) that anyone ever considered giving steelers feeder tendrils. So its not like GW was trying to take a viable option and make it hard to get. I'm sure if they had 1/2 feeder tendrils in 4th ed then tons of people would be complaining about how there are so many that they don't need.

yeah- I think the variant heads where put in more as a "nice little extra" and cool modeling options rather than as necessary upgrades.

Nobody knows what nid biomorths look like anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

Just don't have multiple stealer squads with different upgrades, so it doesn't matter whaich squad is which.
