Good job on that trade. Seems like a great deal to me.
I have been thinking the same thing. Tells us how the Aleph Steel Phalanx support pack meshes with your PanO forces.
Those all sound good. It seems that your choices are either NCA (Neoterra) or MO (Military Orders) units.
The Orc ladies pack is a good idea since Orcs can link in both ASA & NCA sectorials (Duo & Harris links in ASA). Even though they are older sculpts the girls will fit nicely with the rest of the current model range. I have them on my desk and the Orcs are just as tall as the Icestorm Orc.
For MO, the Santiago & Order Sergeant boxes will be good buys. Santiagos can be proxied as Hospitallers if you wanted to test their linkteam. I would hold off on buying more Hospitallers since the resculpted box is coming out later this year. If you are serious about playing MO (aka you like the sectorial alot) then buying the Magisier Knights box. It will allow you to create a Santiago or Hospitaller link cheaper. 4 or 3 Magisters + 2 or 1 Santiago/Hospitallers. Another Father Knight can be bought if you like using a duo link of them. Remember always proxy first and practice in multiple matches to make sure you want to buy a certain unit/link.
If NCA is your cup of tea then do grab the starter set/box and the Bolts box since you have the Fusiliers already. As I stated above, the new May release female Orc blister is worth it if you are playing NCA &/or ASA. Auxila are great in NCA since you can bring as many as you want in that sectorial. Plus having a cheap order that coems with a heavy flamethowing auxbot can help alot in camo hunting.
After you tried out the Cutter and get used to T.A.G.s you can get the Stingray duo T.A.G. box. It has the Tikilabang: ASA's climbing, minelaying, heavy flamethowing, HMG T.A.G. Plus the Uhlan: NCA's camoed, HMG, Feuerbach T.A.G. You can proxy/convert one of the Stingrays to become another Tikilabang/Uhlan if you dislike using one of their loadouts. So you don't end up wasting money on a model that you won't use.
Another cheap order for Vanilla or MO lists that use Joan is the Tech-Bee. She only costs 5 points & Joan will make her a normal order. Plus the Tech-Bee comes with the Crab-bot aka PanO's pilot/specialist for their T.A.G.s. If the way CB painted the Tech-Bee bothers you then just paint the skin areas a uniform/faction color scheme. That is what I'm doing with the one I recently bought.
I'll post some lists in a bit but I wanted to at least type this out first.
