This is my first 40K army ever, I played LOTR a few years ago stopped and decided to pick up 40K instead.
So far I have purchased the catachan battle force (25 guardsmen, 2 sentinels, 3 heavy weps teams) and one Leman Russ tank.
What should i buy next (besides HQ Ill have that covered soon). This army probably wont go past 1500-2000 points.
I was thinking of either 1. Putting together an armored fist squad or Stormtroopers mounted in a chimera or another leman russ tank or two...
I would probably go with another 40-60 Infantry, and another LRBT
also this should help
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
Any other suggestions, im hoping to stray away from epic hordes of infantry, but at the same time I don't want to mass vehicles
get more tnaks, basiliks and chimeras
Chimeras are good, but I wouldnt get basilisks if I were you, they arent worth the points.
You do need more ground pounders, every guard army needs those. More Heavy weapons is a must too.
After that, just fill out with what you want, I would suggest a few more russes and sentinels, maybe some kasarkin or ogryns.
nono one team of heavy weapons and lemun russ, basilisks are 100pts and earn that much in one shot on marines!
More tanks? Maybe. It all depends on who he will be facing. In some places, sentinels will be better than the leman russ. In some cases it might be the opposite. I would have at least three tanks on hand for any changes in your list.
One heavy weapon team? no. This is one of the first thing the enemy will shoot at, if you lose that one team, then what? You need to have Anti-tank weapons and the 'nade launcher just wont cut it. The melta, rocket launcher, and lascannon are best at this.
Basilisk? I say no. Some players swear by them, but I dont like them. The OP can do whatever he wants on this one.
I also suggest you wait the month or so until the new codex and models come out to buy anything really big. Be sure to buy as many guardsmen now as possible, the prices are going up and you get less men in a box.
O_O, are the prices of storm troopers going up as well?
EDIT: I might pick up storm troopers instead of more normal guardsmen

Money wise, I dont think so, but Im not quite sure.
Points wise, most likely.
The stormtroopers are keeping their current set, it's just the infantry that are going up in cost$ and down in points.
