Default constructing a tyranid force

hello everyone, i am starting up a tyranid army. i previously started to build one but gave up, so i want to give them a go, and the new codex is all the more incentive! i currently have 16 gaunts that i will be converting to spine gaunts, 8 gene stealers, and a ravener. i had 3 warriors but i sold them to a friend :

so as you can tell this army never got off the ground, i want a swarm army, but with lots of big ones running around them so no genestealers or broodlords, but plenty of fexes! i have about a hundred or so dollars and i wanted to know what the best purchase for me would be.

thanks in advance!

if you're not shopping ebay, or can't find a local game store with a sale or other discount, then your next best option will be to purchase the battleforce when it comes out.

All the battleforces cost 90$ and will save you anywhere from 30$-50$ (US dollars, anyway). There will be a good selection of starter units. It's not out yet, so hold on until December or early January.

The new Tyranid Battleforce will be 105 dollars I believe. At least that is what I am hearing on the web. As it supposedly releases in less than a week, more information should be out shortly.
