I'll second the firewarriors since you need at least 2 troop choises. I'd also sugest a fireblade or etherial to boost the volume of shots they can put out... and a unit of pathfinders.

I'd skip the pathfinders for the first little bit. Markerlights act as a force multiplier, so even though they themselves are not cost efficient (11 points a model for a unit that isn't designed to cause wounds) they make other things more cost efficient. However, in very low point games (like what you're going to be playing for a little bit while you build up your force) they don't have enough of a force to multiply and thus cost more points than the army will gain by using them.

I'd say your next purchase should be a second troop choice. Either a second unit of fire warriors or a unit of kroot. Either one will serve you very well, and will grow into a larger force perfectly.

agreed on the more troops thing and if you have the money to spend after that i would suggest some more elite/tank killers, i would suggest a battle suit or 3, set them up for elite/tank hunting (helios [suit with plasma rifle and fusion blaster] is good for that) the two units (assuming the 3 suit pack) together would be right around around a hundred, $60 with just one suit
