It really depends on how you want them. Imperial Guard is a very versatile army. Do you want lots of infantry using volume of fire and manpower to win, a wide array of tanks to win, guys popping up right behind the enemy when they least expect it, a nasty army always using cover to your advantage, or something else?

you really need to have a codex before we can give you any army advice. you really need a first impression on these things to gauge what you like and dislike to form your own style of play.

Almost every single thing in your list breaks a rule, or doesnt exist at all in the form you have it in. What exactly would you hope to do if we gave you a list but you didnt have any of the rules? You NEED a codex, otherwise you are buying paperweights. Do you really only have the option of purchasing hundreds of dollars worth of models before a twenty dollar codex? I would like to help you, i just cannot fathom why an army list would be of any use to you before you get the rules to use them.

And its "someone" and "please", thank you......

Yoriaki,

Making an Imperial Guard list is easy. First, you NEED the codex.

Secoundly, making a list is half the fun of the whole thing. Dont ask people to make your lists, get the codex, and get creative with what you want. I can only agree with MonkeighBusiness, I would gladly help you out, but get of your butt and get the codex. And yes, as also pointed out by MonkeighBusiness, your list is illegal. So very, very illegal.

simplest:
get a leman russ and arm it with heavy bolters all over
get a chimera and 10 infantry to put in it for an Armored Fist.. add a heavy weapon to the squad if you have a figure for it
get a infantry platoon with heavy and special weapons and voxcasters. 3 squads. 1 command group with close combat weapons.
get a command platoon with a commissar and master vox and realy tough Heroic Officer

1000 points give or take

As in all armies you need to start with one HQ and two TROOP choces and build on that..

So you need a command squad for youre HQ and two plattoons of infantry or two squads of armored fist.

Maybe something like this....

HQ
Commandsquad..
Officer with bolter
4 guardsmen

(heavyweapons squad.. with 3 heavy bolters) optional

TROOPS
First platoon
Command squad: officer with bolter, 4 guardsmen
Squad 1: 10 guardsmen including one lascannon.
Squad 2: 10 guardsmen including one lascannon

Armored Fist;
Chimera with multilaser, heavy bolter and pintle heavy stubber.
10 guardsmen including one plasmagun

HEAVY SUPPORT
Leman russ with hull heavy bolter and heavy bolter sponsoons. (optional)

ELITE
Storm Troopers: 10 including two plasmaguns (optional)

FAST ATTACK
Sentinel with auto cannon (optional)
Sentinel with auto cannon (optional)
