Default how many attacks?

i've looked in the rule book, and i've tried to find where it mentions how many attacks a model has, but i still can't find it. i know this army list should be in the right section, but i'm only posting it here to see if someone can answer this question:

Total Points=771 Points

HQ=76 Points

Tyranid Warrior x3

1x Rending Claws, Scything Talons=24 Points

2x Deathspitters, Scything Talons=26 Points each=52 Points



Troops=536 Points

Hormagaunts x12=156 Points
12 Scything Talons, Without Number

Spinegaunts x12=60 Points
12 Spinefists

Genestealers x8=160 Points
8 Scything Talons, Rending Claws

Genestealers x8=160 Points
8 Scything Talons, Rending Claws



Heavy Support=159 Points

Carnifex x1=159 Points

Acid Maw, Extended Carapace, Tail Weapon-Scythe, Crushing Claws, Scything Talons

It's the A characteristic listed in the profile for each model. For Tyranids, each set of scything talons adds one attack. Plus one additional attack if you charged into CC that turn.

Carnifexes can get more attacks. Crushing claws replace the A (Attack) characteristic with D6 attacks. A scythe tail adds +D3 (if 5 or models are in base contact and it becomes half str), tusked can add +2 attacks on the charge. Scything talons will add +1

I make that a maximum of 12. However if you got charged by 4 guys it could be as low as 2 attacks.
