Default Christmas List, You fill the list WOW!

Hey all, Well Christmas is only round the corner and little boys everywhere want more warhammer. My nephew is wanting imperial guard this year but has been a SM player for the last year. I was hoping that you nice people out there could let me know what he needs for a 1500Point list. Lets just keep it simple but leave room for adding lots of other units later.
Am not looking an army list with points cost just what units and the number of he should get. I don’t use Guard but have in my mind what he should get but was looking your input.

Thanks guys.

EDIT: Forgot to say he likes Cadian Guard none of them other Monkeys!

Start off with a battleforce, of course. Leman Russes are always nice, too! These would make a nice little starter list.

How old is your nephew?

When I was little, I loved star wars, so some sentinels (At-St much?) would be a cool, interesting unit. Can't go wrong with lots of tanks, either!

Perhaps tell us more about him (Age, play style, etc) and I can help out some more.

Ok maybe the Santa crack through you lot of, He just started secondary school this year. The way he plays is Shoot Shoot Shoot! He is very shootie and not assaulty at all. Does not move around much if he can help it so I think maybe he should of went Tau!

[hr]

Ok I got a question. I found my old Imperial guard codex which is now out of date. Can a Infantry Platoon use Chimeras? or is it just Armoured Fist Squads?

Let's avoid double posting though!

Yes, all squads (save Heavy Weapon squads) can take Chimera's now. But if your Nephew is more Shooty than mobile, I would suggest a few Battleforces (each is a small Platoon), command squad (for Company command), another infantry squad or two (bulk up those Platoons, and Leman Russes.

Wish I had someone who knew what Warhammer even was that could buy me Xmas presants : Your Nephew is a lucky, lucky boy ;D

Actually, the codex would be an important thing to pick up first.

From there, you can then build upon what we tell you and see the points totals and all that jazz.

Who would be the best shooty HQ?

In the old Codex I was reading that you needed a Cadian Command Squad to have a Cadian Heavy Weapon Team. But you also need a Command Squad to take Cadian Shock Troops. So would u need two Command squads to have that lot or just one?

A command squad! -.-

the othe HQs are just single man things.

Also you can never go wrong with artillery. What shooty guy lives nothing more than sending oversized shells at the enemy! And tanks!

---

if your feeling generous I could do with a few presents aswell!

Your question ninja'd me! Don't worry there are no unit to hq limitations now. Also amourd fist doesn't exist. Now you stick a veteran sqaud in a chimera.
---

sorry I just built a chimera in a small room with no windows open so I think It has got to my head with all the glue.

SAFETY FIRST!!!! always remember to open the window while glueing, also WASH YOUR HANDS!!! lol

Ok joke over, I think I will have to get hold of a new codex and have a good look before we get him everything.

What I was thinking is something like
2 Basilisk
Leman Russ Battle Tank
Valkyrie
Imperial Guard Cadian Battleforce
Imperial Guard Cadian Shock Troops
Imperial Guard Chimera
Imperial Guard Cadian Kasrkin Squad
Imperial Guard Lord Commissar

What do you think? Have I left anything out? I know he wants a Valkyrie thats why thats in there. Could you make a good list out of this? Also if I was to get this is there anything missing?
