A codex and rulebook would be a much better place to start.

you'll need to pick up some extra officers to make it legal, also a lot more heavy weapons teams, hidden Heavy bolters and autocannons are teh sweet.

but yea get a Codex or you'll just hit yourself on the head afterwards.

assassins are not normally guard models. you'll need an inquisitor to use an assassin as an ally: a witch or demon hunter....
i am curious what you shove in those '20 men' squads... are they just lasgunners? a lascannon will serve you well with that many meatshields.

More command squads and more tanks. Also, forget about assassins unless you are doing a WH or DH force, which it doesn't look like you are going for with what you have already.

the real question here is how do you plan to play your army. you have enough models to go either way really. i would get some special weapons and officers even though it wouldnt be too hard to proxy a model in early games. my suggestion would be to get a feel for the type of army you want and then expand it accordingly.

When you say "20 men" I assume you mean a platoon, even though a minimum sized platoon has 25 men.

your minimum would be a platoon w 25 guards. strongly suggest a heavy weapon upgrade. add to that a command hq squad and an armorfist or storemtrooper 'grenadier' pick to fill up your 2nd troop requirement. past that.. just add whatever tanks or infantry squads to the platoon in yer collection and you should have a functional army.

he could just be talking about two different box sets.

to me your army looks a tad too sprawled - looks like no real core that will hammer away - so i would make heavy weapons, bassie and extra men your priority after you get the minimum command squads, then spend the remaining time chipping away at the flavour.
