Default Starting Tyranids

I am planning on starting Tyranids because I have fallen in love with the models and possible paint schemes. I also love the thought of playing an army with a completely different mind set to that of my Tau. I do however need a few opinions for starting out.

I don't have the Codex and plan to buy it online along with my starting force. Going into this blind would it be a pretty good start to buy 2 Battleforce boxes and a Hive Tyrant? It seems like you get a fair balance of models. I would probably do a very balanced army as I play in many tournaments where you opponent is unknown untill you have already made an army list. Let me know if this would be wise. Thanks!

Two Battleforces and a Tyrant is a great start to an army, and very balanced as you supposed.

Check out the Tyranid links at the top of the 'Nid forum. There're a lot of helpful tactics to get you started. Once you have your models feel free to give us a list here and we'll see what we can do with it.

Yeah, two battleforces is a great way to start with the nids. You get a well rounded force,including two carnifexes!
