Seems like a pretty tasty deal if your math is right. Especially if they are unpainted.

he's saying unpainted
and i already have the tyranid swarm box so with that it's about 4500 points without upgrades

If there is a chance you will use them, and if you have the money to spare... yes, it looks like it is definitely worth it.

If you enjoy playing an uphill struggle every game then yes, pick up some nids.

If your more into painting and modelling than the game sure, otherwise i'd ask nid players because i've heard they are not in a great place this edition.

For that price, if I had the cash I would pick them up, even though I don't play Nids. At worst, you can sell/trade them on later.

I would probably buy them if I were you. I'm not all that into nids (like the models, but have a hard time relating to their fluff), but if you like them buy them. As MajorWesJanson said, if you can't get the hang of them game-wise you can sell them off individually and make some money.

I had my first 7ed game vs Nids a few days ago, and even though I had a Daemon Prince who was pooping out daemons all game long, the Nids managed to win. For your startup army I recommend a Swarmlord, a Flying Hive, something long range like a shooty fex and/or biovores and then whatever as long as you stay away from Warriors. They are hard to use and the only configuration that isn't way overcosted is the bare bones one.

Lycka till, om du har pengar över så såg det lätt värt ut. Tänk bara på att man kan bli överväldigad av att ha så mycket att måla på en gång.

Or depending on your gaming group: Fix 'em. That's what we'll be doing when tyranid collection is enlargened into playable size(about 1000 pts putting up every upgrade and somewhat random models. Currently 8 termagaunts and 8 dev-gaunts for example...).
