Default Unfamiliar player needs army advice

In preparation for my Gue'vesa guard I'm trying to determine how to secure the models I need. I plan to convert each model and need all the bitz, so picking them up individually off of EBAY doesn't work. I need the full kit, or it won't work.

So far I need to secure the following:

2 Basilisks
2 Leman Russ Demolishers
3 Hell Hounds
7 Chimera Transports

My original Plan was to buy 4 of the Basilisk Batteries and one L.Russ Tank Squadron (each costs the same as a battleforce), and use the gas barrels from each tank and some spare bits to convert the promethium tanks and inferno cannons on the Hellhounds.

I'm unfamiliar with the box sets, though. Do the Basilisk batteries contain the bitz to make regular chimeras, or would I have to buy each of the chimerae seperately?

It's all good, thanks for the help. Saves me from wasting a couple hundred dollars. ;D
