I'm just starting out with the guard, or at least I've just begun playing them sine I began collecting them a few months back.
This is not my first army at all, I originally started with Imperial Marines and have nearly 4k base pts worth of them. I also play orks though I recently began to descale my (also) 4k army to make into a leaner freebooter army.
I thus far have a total of:
A Command Squad
Six infantry squads, two platoon command squads, and two heavy weapon squads
A Leman Russ
And a Basilisk
My intentions are to build a fluffy army under the servitude of a Rogue Trader Dynasty.
I'm still deciding on banner colors, but I've settled for a urban/forest camo scheme involving grey and green.
There are a few rule additions we will be making to the codex entries such as allowing valkyries to purchase Flares for 15tpts, which when declared a target the owner can choose to deploy the flares making the opponent re-roll the to hit.
The Rogue Trader himself will be an interesting create as a special character, and I have retitled Lord Commissar to Arch-Militant in keeping with the RT style.
I've fallen in love with my Leman Russ Vanquisher. On its very first game, the first turn, it scored a tank kill right off bat! I mean bam, between the trees, failed his coversaves! Armor pen at 19, plus the lascannon and two plasma cannons really made up their points for me that game! I plan to commemorate the kill by painting a small tau hammerhead onto the turret itself.
After that match I plan tow really mechanize my forces. Especially since my group is fine with utilizing the forgeworld chimera autocannon turrets, so I'll have light tanks/apcs!
Next purchase is to flush out my leman Russ Vanquisher squadron! (Tread-heads a many in my group)
Anywho, I just wanted to drop in and say hello to my new fellow guardsmen!

By Flavian do you mean you're going for a Roman theme? That'd be pretty unique.

Welcome to IG, the home of underdogs with oversized guns!
You've got a nice selection of units to start your army with. I doubt anybody can help you with fluff; Rogue Trader patronage means almost anything goes. (So does Forge World-legal!) Tell us about your counts-as Lord Commissar when you get his backstory worked out.
P.S. You should name that Vanquisher "The Golden B.B."
