I just received this game and am loving it so far. I only have the four base set factions and am looking to expand. Which expansions are the best purchases?

Duel is worth it for the board- then print out the duel:chain reaction cards. Then enjoy the ONLY way, as far as I'm concerned, to play.

If you are loving it, you will want them all. I personally enjoy Smart and New York. NeoJungle and Vega$ are tough to play but rewarding as well.

Do you have an iPad? The App is simply outstanding. One of the few games that actually play better on the device than the board.

If you get 3.0 just wait for conversion of older expansions for this format. ATM only Sharrash is converted and it's very good army to buy.

If you get 2.5... Oh boy, there are plenty. And ALL of them (well, except Dancer) are brilliant. New York is the easiest to learn. It has least new rules and is pretty straightforward, defensive army. Smart isn't hard either, but these are bunch of offensive insects. Steel Police and Sharrash aren't complicated either, but they had more unique feelings. So I recommend one of these armies.

Neojungle, Vegas, Dancer and Mephisto are different cups of tea. They have absolutely insane playstyles, very different from base four armies. If you want something really unique, go for one of them.

In this way I recommended you all of armies . Just read about each and choose what you find interesting.

Keep in mind that these are just additional armies. There's no "expansion" for NS Hex, except maybe Duel. I'd suggest trying them out on iPad first and then choose which one you want to get. Personally, I love Neojungle and Vegas.

I think the terrain tiles are great. I'm surprised they don't get more love.

Does anyone know how they will release the 3.0 armies? Will they sell them individually or sell them in sets such as the ones that came in babel and duel?

AFAIK, they'll be individually sold.
