Default Battleforce a good buy?

I just need some advice as to whether the battleforce is a good purchase or not at this stage in my army, because as of right now I have:
3 XV8s (1 commander)
7 Stealth suits
1 Ethereal (rarely use him, though)
24 Firewarriors
16 Kroot
1 Hammerhead
9 Drones (1 markerlight)
I'm mostly debating because I don't need any more Stealths.

There's bound to be an old Battleforce around here. Heck, my GW only has the old battleforce!

In my opinion the battleforce is always a good buy. 50 quid gives you:
12 FW
1 DF
3 Stealth
1 Crisis
6 Drones (the two on the DF included)
1 markerdrone
16 kroot

But it all depends on what you need. maybe this package is right for you.. maybe the old one is. It all comes down to what direction your are taking your army.

If you don't need any more stealths, get the old battleforce. 3 crisis

if you plan on using a team of pathfinders, then i'd pick up the new battleforce. a Devilfish isn't worth its cost when you can buy it, a XV8, three XV25's, twelve FW's and 12 Kroot for around double the cost of one devilfish. personally, from your standing point, i would agree with the rest of the guys. the lod BF seems a very good buy.

It depends how much of the stuff in it you will use. See it's a love-hate thing, Some battleforces you could use every last model, then some you get units that to you are totally irrelevant, then you end up wasting money.

You either love them, or hate them. >

even then, it never hurts to have back up models to improve your painting/modeling skills on. ~_^ good, then. which reminds me, i still need to pick one up myself. thanks for the reminder! haha!
