The Cadian pattern regiment is 8000 men.

8000 divided by 20 (How many men per boxed set) ...400 boxed sets, each set is $50 Canadian...

Roughly $20,000 Canadian?

He's working in Sterlin, you're working in Dollars
But to convert, $210K is probably somewhere around 110K to us Brits...

OK... a full regiment... Let's break it down.

~8000 men
_____________
~7550 PBIs (if you don't know what these are... you shouldn't be playing guard)
~100 Leman Russes (3 man crews)
~50 Basilisks (3 man crews)

Therefore, (in US $)
Infantry: ~$13212.50
Leman Russ: ~$4000
Basilisk: ~$2000

Overall, $19212.50 for an IG Regiment...

Basically 20k for a full regiment with cool things, paint and the rest...

Poor

You usually don't model cooks, and you can still fit in things like hellhounds and the like in for the russes
