I want to start a mech guard army. However, I am not sure where to start and what to use as I am new to Imp Guard. Any help with a 1500pt list that could hold its own against space marine armies(i.e. CSM, BA, Grey Knights)?
*p.s. I like the Valkyries and Vendettas*
You should probably start by using the search function to look through previous threads with finished army lists for this type.
But in general mech lists work like -
CCS in chimera with either 4 plasmas or 4 meltas
veterans in chimeras with 3 meltas/3 plasmas
vendettas (no valkyries).
And if you end up with an odd 50 points throw in a sentinel.

I use plasma on all my squads in chimera's and a few medusa's.
"Mech Guard" pretty much defines itself. Since you're keen on skimmers, however, you should consider including an infantry platoon to unlock special weapon squads for use as passengers. (Veterans are more effective in Chimeras.) The platoon's infantry squads can be made into a blob squad to hold your home objective and provide covering fire.
