View Full Version : Nid battleforce points

23-06-2005, 08:18
I was wondering if someone could tell me how many points you can get out of the new nid battleforce if armed in an average way, by that I mean nothing special on the gaunts, maybe FoF or something on the stealers, an elite carnie (115?) and the warriors armed with scything talons and a desent selection of ranged weps (as HQ).

I plan on buying the box and codex soon but haven't had a chance to get to my local store to read the codex yet.

500/550 points or so.

100 for the warriors,
80 for hormies,
50ish for gaunts,
130/160 for genestealers,
115/150 for carnifex.

Could also be a somewhat higher sum. I'm getting a Battle Force now, and in my army the points cost will come to the following for the contents:

Warriors: 129
Hormagaunts: 112
Gaunts: 48
Genestealers: 96 (I cannot remember how many that comes with the Battle Force, but this is if it was six)
Carnifex: 178

Total points cost: 568

Seeing as how I have dirt cheap Gaunts and no extras on my 'Stealers you could quite possibly manage to get 600+ points from it.

Hormogaunts (8): 80 or you could make them much dearer
8 gaunts: Depends on weapons but with fleshborers they're 48pts
3 Warriors: +1WS,Str,Sv,I, Leaping, S.Talons, R.Claws: 129
Carnifex: Anywhere from 91 points to 200+
6 Genestealers: 96+ points (add-ons)

Hmm, I think there are 8 genestealers in the battleforce.

Yep, it's 8 gaunts, 8 hormies, 8 'stealers, 3 warriors and a carnie.
