Hey, I'm looking to get some Steel Legion but am not sure exactly what to get. For a basic 500 points army what should I purchase? I'm on like a $150 budget for this part.
Something I forgot to ask, is everything the same as it is for the Cadians? Or do the Steel Legion have a different set of rules?

There arent many Steel Legionaires on the GW site so i'd suggest a second hand site such as ebay.
For an initial list you might want to try something along the lines of...
Primaris Psyker (these guys work well in low point games and since you're mechanised orders wont do much good)
Vet Squad in Chimera (go with whatever weapons you can find, although meltaguns would be best for 1 squad, you can also convert flamers into them fairly easily)
Vet Squad in Chimera (A second squad would do wel with grenade launchers, help out with some anti light vehicle and match the strength of the Primaris)
A sentinel would do nicely, armoured would be more suitable to your fluff but I find that scout sentinels do better, autocanon and lascannon for the sentinel either way is IM the best loadout.
Leman Russ Demolisher (keep the sponsons off, this will give you a mobile tank with the ability to threaten anything in the game, from infantry to the heaviest of vehicles)
I havent calculated the points perfectly but that should be along the lines of what you'd want for your first 500pt IG list with Steel Legion. After that i'd advise you to take some more veterans, as well as some more tanks. Your infantry are expensive so be careful not to buy too many of them, hell some valkyries and vendettas could give your army some nice support.

I've already got the Russ and Psykers, I'll pick up some infantry and stuff, thanks for the advice.
