Default Starting Guard (maybe)

I haev finaly decied to put my 30+ humans to good use...Start a guard army!

Of course 30 is about the bare minumun for guard, so i'd need some help for a$ 24 budget...most of is the 'dex.

I Have:
1 Techpriest
12 Kasrkin (sarge, flamer, gl, plas, melta +7 hellguns)
18 guradsmen Inc 1 falmer., 2 sarges.
and enoug bits to make at max 4 more guys.

I aslo have: 12 Kroot.
So i need to get the 'dex, but maybe:
Command squad (no idea)
Doctrine: Stromtroopers
strormtrooper squad, Plas&melta)
Platon HQ ???
-Squad 1 8 LG 1 sarge 1 GL
-Squad 2 8lg 1 sarge 1 flamer

Krrot mercs: 11 kroot+shaper.
Sentianal squadron?
'Russ?
Im thinkign of getting a Skyhook for a valkarie
http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/mi...hip%20Troopers
or an Ape or Chickenhawk for a Sentianl.
http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/mi...05&qsSeries=26
http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/mi...06&qsSeries=26
And 20 guys for 25 bucks! better deal than GW right now...
http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/mi...hip%20Troopers
They even have carprace armor...

A command squad (heros of the MI) for $15!!!!!1

Check it out...good for nids as well.
http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/mi...hp?qsSeries=26

So id like some advice on what the omore expirience guard players would have to say on a stormtroopers w/valkarie &kroot mercs idea. Id gett all the troops (20 more) w/light MI, and the vechicles (skyhook, ape/chickenhawk, but not a leman rus...)
for a LOT less than GW.

that all seems like a viable solution.i would choose the chickenhawk over the ape, since the ape resembles the dread more.lastly, the only killer here is wargamer

Those skyhooks are so cool. In fact, all of the starship trooper models are so cool. I am honestly thinking about buying some after reading this thread. Oh, and a nice assortment of starting models.

those skyhooks are exponentally better looking then the valkrye. however, i think that you should eventually get regular guardsmen.

do not, i repeat DO NOT get starship trooper troopers :-\... they really suck... i have 8 and i hate them... they have limited detail on the weapons. and they look Sisters of Battleish... the new speeder bikes are a good way of making different roungh riders... or the WASP troopers are good for that too... kasrkins DO NOT STINK... Grrrrr Ccarapace without modelling stinks.

no, they're coming out w/new modles, more like the ones in the movies... they're under 'november realses'. "Light MI'

Basicaly the same modle idea as a guardsman-cept they look cooler.

http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/mi...hip%20Troopers

and cost less. And arenot Gw products...

I got them for christmas...i asked for 'guard' &fire warroirs to make human auxilaries...the metal modles were a free(for me!) bonus!

BS4 rocks...plus i can fill out by army better (cheaper) by usign d
Stormtroopres (karshrik.)
Speaical Weapons.
Carprace
Sentianls
Grenadiers.

So i get the 'dex...$20.
Skyhook...$30
Light-armored Mi...20 guys for 25$!

So i can make a command squad w/my guard i have now. Are tech-p's HQ?
Use Kasrkin Squad w/Skyhhok to maek Air Cav team #1.

Have 2 squads of Grendiaers (Light-MI.)

And use an ape for a sential. Get a hvy weapons squad (15$) for bitz and possibly throw it into the mix.
Im looking at....20+30+25+15...$90 for a guard army.
1)Get a job.
2)make $90
3)go paint toy soldiers.

EDIT OPs...$110$USD! can't forget 'ape' or 'chickenahwk.'

Plus i can always use them for a tau battlesuit.
