Default battle force

im getting the new codex next week and was wondering how many points worth of models do you get in the battle force on average, so i know what size force i would be starting with and what would be a good suggestion to buy after the battleforce. i was thinking of buyin another box of fire warriors, a battlesuit commander and another crisis suit. any help would be great.

lets see:

120 of FW
84 of kroot
90 of strealths
60 or so of battlesuit
85 of the devilfish

it will be about 450 pts. if you count the drones it should be about 500pts...

the new box is a great way to start an army a great deal in my opinion

I'd get another one, then a tank, I mean hammerhead (got to remember we have two of them now). That will give you a nice 1000 points or so to play around with. For now, I'd also advise using those crisis suits as two shas'els, so that their firepower is increased, but that's just me. The new box is a good deal. I'll be getting a few of those to bulk up my army.

If I get another battle force and a battlesuit commander I could use the 2 crisis suits as bodyguard for the commander couldnt I? thanks for the advice man I need all I can get cos im a bit rusty on the hobby cos I hav'nt played for like 3 years and I just got back into it about a month ago. oh yeah and a hammerhead aswell cos we all need some nice big guns

all the time ive been playing i have learned 1 thing [glow=red,2,300]kroot are essential[/glow] not to all armies but they help out a whole lot here is an example, my first tournament i played with a hybrid army.* i continuously used the kroot to infiltrate units into the enemy deployment zones for the sole reason that i could gain points by doing just that (points as in the tournament score things) and through all of the games they took out somewhere near 1500 points (out of 7 rounds that is quite impressive)

after you get the first army box get another one.

it´s a bargain and everything is useful.
