Looks like a good starting point, you get nearly one squad of everything (at least). Gives you plenty of room for expansion, and picking out units that work the best for you - however that would eventually mean you have units sitting to the side that you're not using. Unless you like it all

I can't remember exactly what the xv77 is but this certainly looks like an excellent starting point.

Build a few different lists with this stuff and play against friends or some people at your local GW, get a feel forhow the differnt units work and then expand from there.

If you've got the money and you like the sound of the deal then sure order as soon as you like.

One problem with it though. You can't take 6 Pathfinders with Rail Rifles. Your only allowed 3.,

Maybe its forgeworlds broadside suit?
The one with the railrifles hung under the arms of the suit and twin linked plasma rifles on the shoulders.
Cool model.

That's a lot of stuff, if it was me, I would probably get it. But your are probably going to need to buy some more units as well.
