are you going infantry? get some more HW squads (30), some special weapons(about 10, if you dont want the grenade launcher or flamer) you may want an HSO or just SO and a command squad for the army(about another 30), and read this:http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=4726.0 to save some cash on the HW teams

definitely storm troopers, but ratlings and orgryns are a little questionable.it really depends on how you want to play: up close or far away.

I am not a big fan of them for the simple reason they are not human. They just dont feel right to me.........
