Personally, I don't think Biovore are worth taking gameplay-wise.

But, I think your question is based on price and possibly saving money.

You listed a lot of spore mines under fast attack. You wouldn't normally want to take them as fast attack options, and the Biovore model itself comes with 3 spore mines.

What I suggest you do is: buy however many biovores you want but buy only one spore mine blister of each type. The spore mines are sort of markers anyway, and there won't be that many floating around the board by the end of the game (Certainly not 60 of each type, as you were planning on buying).

So I suggest you narrow it down to:
x3 Biovores
x1 Frag mine pack
x1 bio-acid pack
x1 poison pack

this army isnt really going to be for gameplay in stores, its home game army

and i just want heaps as this will be a huge collectors army, but i wanna get my gameplay army first, so my question really is, are any spore mines or biovores worth actually buying for a starting gameplay army

Theoretically, you should never need 180 Spore Mines as they'll die quickly enough to be recycled back onto the field, either through being shot down or exploding. Though I will say, 180 spore mines would probably look insanely cool.
