Welcome to Librarium Online!
i am considering startiong an imperial guard army and i am wondering what i should buy first.
i have no specifications that i want to include in it
i would get the army box. some officers and another box of gaurdsmen
but next time you do a post say somthing like how much money you have to spend
Yes people i know that my spelling and punctuation is awful but I am product of British teaching pollicies so what can I do about it?
i want ot spend about 40 pounds on it
I recommend the Box Set as well. Good place to start!
Isn't a pound like 1.40 U.S. if so i don't know if there is much you can get for that, try a infantry squad box set with a few comander blisters, that would give you a small fighting force.

okay thats about 71 dollars and all you can really get is 2 boxes of cadians adn a blister of 2 officers. thats around 70 bucks right there you have your 2 troops slots filled up. all you need now is an hq and if you get that pathetic box set thats another 35$. im not sure whats that in british pounds.

Look on ebay for an Imperial Guard "Battleforce"
Thats a pretty much a small legal army in a box, sometimes you can catch them on ebay for a good price and save yourself some money to start.
Also, codexes are usually cheap on ebay, if you dont mind the wait for shipping.

1. Box of Cadian Shock Troops
2. Box of Cadian Shock Troops
4. Box of Heavy Weapons (optional at first, but eventually you gotta get it)
5. codex IG
5 guys with pistol/ccw
3 guys with vox (don't actually have to buy them, but they look cool).
3 grenadelaunchers (optional)
the rest are just joe's with lasguns.
chimera with pintle Hstubber
this will give you a 100% legal army. you'll have a 5man squad Command HQ, 5 man squad platoon command, 2 squads in that platoon, and an armored fist squad.
then you can make some Heavy weapons. it's possible to make 15 heavy weapons from the box, but you'll need another box of cadians and 9 more bases.
but you'll FOR SURE wanna make those 3 missle launchers, you can put them on normal (individual) bases with a normal guy (standing up). and you'd probably want to make either 3 Heavy Bolters or 3 Lascannons. (probably heavy bolters for small point games).
well. that's a good start. things to get after you get this up and running
1. more guys!!
5. Officers models
7. More Chimeras
10. more guys!!!
I'd say get the battleforce... you get enough to have small games and figure out if you want more troops or more tanks. The heavy weapon box set is a must have as it will give you enough heavy weapons to convert and experiement with.

Bare minimum you have to have either:
3 Cadian Shock Troop Boxes and 1 Command HQ Box and 1 Officer Blister
2 Cadian Shock Troop Boxes and 1 Chimera and 1 Command HQ Box and 1 Officer Blister
You can also buy 2 boxes of troops and buy some heavy weapons boxes or special weapons blisters to make your squads bigger.
