The best Battleforce set for value?

Whenever somebody wants to start a new army, we tell them to get the battleforce. Reason is, buying in a huge bundle from GW seems to be the best way of saving money, but is it ever the best idea? No doubt that battleforces are a great way to bolster your army (sounds like GW?), they provide more models for less money.
I have bought 4 Tyranid battleforces so far for my Tyranid army, that's what I call a good value in a box! I realize that most battleforces are just a throw in of some stuff that we'll never ever use, and some of them just have the best value of all that we can ever think of...

I won't be including the Imperial Guards as they are being released next month and you will have to get your hands on it to know whether you would want another. All the battleforces are of the same price, I hope the rumour of the battleforce price increase won't be true...

Here's a run down of all the battleforces in sequence...

The poll is on the top right of the blog. Remember, vote based on value and usefulness of the content in the battleforce. It's a multiple choice poll, so choose your favourites...

"After the poll closes, I will talk on the worst valued battleforces... I noticed that the Space Wolves Battleforce isn't for sale anymore in the GW Website, does that mean something? You can't order the Codex anymore too."
