I have purchased a used (from ebay) -Bowens Esprit 500 mark II Special Edition kit consisting of:

2 X Esprit II 500 Heads
2 X Manfrotto Lighting stands
1 X Spill Kill reflector
1 X Softbox Bag
1 X 100cm Softbox
1 X Brolly Bag
1 X 100cm White brolly
1 X Kit bag
2 X Modelling Lamps
2 X Mains leads
1 X Sync lead
1 X Soft box adapter

Will this be ok to get me started, I am hoping to be able to take better Head & Shoulder Portrait shots for our Theatre Company Programmes & Publicity materials - is anything else i should look to add straightaway?.

BTW - I paid £490 + P&P which i didn't think was too bad

Too late to ask now really, Bowens is a good brand, should be fine.
