Default Starting IG, Buying Question

Although I've been posting army ideas and such, I have no models. What should I buy for starters? I was thinking the battle force, but it doesn't have a full army in it and I'd have to buy another box of troops and a Command Squad.

So I shouldn't buy a Command Squad? I'm thinking of using a Medic.

I'm thinking of a more static army, so should I buy more troops choices instead of the Chimeras?

Id still get one chimera, the provide alot of of firepower. and always come in handy to rush an objective last turn. if your going for a static army you will need alot of guys.(ive got 40 cadians on sprues if your interested)

you still get troops, but you can use the chimera to move the hq around.

You want the Battleforce, 2 troop boxes, a command squad, a blister of two officers, and a blister of bearer and medic.
