The new Tyranid Battleforce is up for order now. Here's the contents:
3 Ripper Swarms
That's 46 models total. At a price of $105, that's $2.28 per model. Let's break it down more specifically.
3 Warriors are $35
8 Stealers are $30
16 Hormagaunts are $33.27 (new packaging with 12 for $24.95)
16 Termagants are $33.27
Rippers are free, practically.
The grand total separate is $131.54. You save 25%. Now let's compare it to the old Battleforce.
3 Warriors $35
8 Stealers $30
8 Hormagaunts and 8 Gaunts $35
1 Carnifex $45
Separate, the total is $145. It used to retail for $90, at an average of $4.09 per model. You saved 61%.
(edit: For some reason that number looks wrong. I have triple checked my numbers and I still get the same result. I am very bad at math, so any math people that could help me out would be appreciated.)
Now I'm wishing I got the old Battleforce when I could. Oh well. The new one is still a deal, especially if you get it at the Warstore or somewhere, and especially if you need lots of gaunts it is a better deal in that regard. But the old Battleforce was nice because it was a very cheap way to get a Carnifex.
Now I'm really wishing that I had got that Tyranid Assault Brood back in the day...
