Default Help Starting

Ok I am going to be selling a lot of Yugioh cards and I thinking I will get 180$ for them
Now the place I buy from is I think its 20% off I know Battleforces are 80$ and a box of Shock Troops is 30$ so my question is what would be the most effective way of getting a 1000 Points
with those prices in mind and 160$ in mind because 20 goes to the codex which im waiting for them to get in stock

Bear in mind I already HAVE 5 LAZGUN SHOCKTROOPS

I was thinking something like

1 Battle Force
1 Box of Cadian Shock Troops
1 Heavy Weapons box
1 Cadian Command Squad

Thats a real good way to start no matter what type of guard army you play. Welcome to the guard to.

Unless you like the Command Squad models, skip it, and buy a few Junior Officers. No reason to get Commander Weasel unless you really like him.

really alright so like 1 Blister of 2 Junior Officers
1 Blister of 2 special Weapons
1 Blister of a Commisar

would that be a good Command squad

I really like Commisars can one lead your army instead of a command squad

No, Commissars, Priests and Psykers are advisors to your command squad. Note the '1 Command Squad'. THis means you HAVE to have one, no more, no less.

When you get your codex, write down some lists with what you'll get in boxes + doctrines.

I'm going to suggest you steer clear of Carapace, It's not really worth it and normal Guardsmen wear flak armor. As represented on the model
