Hmm Im not sure if "Space Marine Catachan Fighters" are Imperial Guard or Space Marines. I'll just list some things that you should get if you start one.

First off get the Rulebook and Codex for the army you want to start (space marines or imperial guard im assuming). Go around the forumn and read some of the tacticas for the armies and get to know them.

If you want Space Marines things to consider would be:
-Another box of Space Marines (probally a tactical squad)
-Devastator Squad or Predator or Dreadnought with Missle Launcher and Twin-Linked Lascannon
-Assault Squad or Bikers
-Rhino for one of the Tactical Squads

That should give you a good base list. You would have a speedy squad to zoom up the flanks, a heavy support to take out armour, 2 solid troop choices, a solid HQ and a Rhino to carry around one of your squads.

If you want Imperial Guard things to consider might be:
-Command Squad
-Another box of Catacans
-Catachans Battle Force
-Some Setinals

I don't know much about Imperial Guard but I think that would give you a good base army.
