Default Contents of a warrior box?

I am planning on getting some warriors soon, and I want to do some conversions with the extra weapons. Could somebody tell me which, and how many of each weapon symbiotes a single warrior box contains?

Thanks

Alright thanks. Comes with alot more than I though.

I'v looked at the warrior's sprues, and I can't tell. Does it come with 2 heads for each warrior?

There are two head carapaces and two mouthpieces. You get three of each.

One head carapace has three spiky bones, the other has two.
One mouthpiece has a short tongue, the other has what looks like a flesh hook tongue. Though there is a separate part of the model with flesh hooks, so I'm not sure if that's what the tongue really is.

Looking at page 51 you can see the short tongue as well as both head carapaces. If you look at page 62 of the codex you can see the long tongue and the two-spike head carapace.

EDIT: Looking at page 51 again, the sub-image showing the flesh hooks also seems to be indicating the long tongue. In that case I guess that tongue really is a flesh hook tongue. In the same image, though you can see the other flesh hook piece I was talking about.

The Barbed tongue is Implant Attack. If you happen to have a 3rd ed. Tyranid codex lying around, look at pg. 22. It has a ridiculously decked out warrior.

As the Implant Attack is no longer an option, I count it as Bioplasma when I decide to take it. (yay magnets!)

That's one of my favourite 'Nid models ever. Just stupidly implausible, sadly. It's all in their save, and the fact it's bloody awful =P

I've yet to really see an official ruling on the barbed tongue. It looks suspiciously like a Flesh Hook, but there are already bits for that. I've never seen the 3rd Edition codex, but Implant Attack is a possibility.

I use them on my Warriors who have neither of the above abilities, because it looks damned cool. ;D

They've messed with the american site, but the Uk site may still have the warrior painting contest from when the current warriors first came out. They detail the biomorphs present well enough.

The image on p22 that romorini mentioned lists off all of the biomorphs used and each one is visually represented. The only questionable one is implant attack, and given that it uses that mouth piece I'm led to believe that it at least was the implant attack.

It looks like a flesh hook, it smells like a flesh hook, I play it as a flesh hook. (Also because I don't like the actual flesh hook component.)
