I would get 2 command squads so that you can play games. Also a chimera might be nice as well as another squad of troops or 2.

Unless you get a Chimera and make ten of those men into am Armoured Fist squad, you'll actually need three command squads (or at least the models to represent them). A Chimera is certainly a nice choice though; it gives your opponent another vehicle to point his heavy weapons at (until it gets close enough for him to get at that side armour) and it gives your army some variety.

Wait-chimeras can hold 12 men, right?

Certainly, but Armoured Fist squads comprise only ten men. Presumably this is to allow for attached characters.

It seems to me that what you should get next, before anything else, is a codex.

You do need a codex and that commisar you have would be a nice attachment to the armoured fist group.

But in order to do that you'd need to add another two Commissars or take the 'Independent Commissars' doctrine, which would severely impact his usefulness in close combat...which is presumably why you would want him attached to an Armoured Fist squad in the first place.

yes i guess that is true.

I still suggest getting 2 squads of infantry and a chimera one squad for the armored fist and the other to add to the platoon of infantry. As well get 2 command squads one for the infantry and one for the whole army making this list legal.

AND ON TOP OF THAT GET A CODEX!!!

An Armoured Fist squad is a unit entry in the IG army list; it's just an infantry squad with a dedicated Chimera transport. The Cadian 8th has lots of them. You're confusing the term with Armoured Company which is an army consisting entirely of tanks, guns and IFVs.

As I said; buy a codex.
