I'm really tempted to buy an AdMech bundle... or a Necron bundle... or both... but I still have MORE than enough to build and paint at home! :o Curse you, GW! I hope these bundles will stick around a bit longer. I guess it's a nice trick to get people into starting a new army.
Painted in 2018:
AdMech: 2 Vanguard
Marines: 1 Rhino, 6 Primaris Intercessor, 1 Captain in gravis armour, 1 Scribbus Wretch
Shadespire: 4 Sepulchral Guard

Even if you don't want an ethereal, the price is too good to not buy the Start Collecting Tau if you wanted crisis suits anyways.

That being said, all these boxes are great value except for maybe necrons. Really all you get is a lord for free, at least with nids if you wanted to get some gargoyles and warriors, you probably went 20 gargs and 6 warriors so the extra money for 2 tyrants as well is worth. Imperial Guard, depending how you look at it, either get a free commissar or free squad of guardsmen. :P

I bought the guard codex igital when it was onsale a few weeks ago on black library, this looks like a great starter set for guard, by my math its half off what you'd pay for each individually, plus you gt a formation for free

Guard have two main units, Leman Russ Battle Tanks and Guardsmen, with the guard bundle, you are paying $5 CAD more and getting a Heavy weapon team and a commissar. A great start would be 2 or 3 of these and maybe a command squad.

With 2 bundles plus command squad
HQ- Company command squad

Troops - Veteran Squad with heavy weapon team each and commissar

With 3 bundles plus command squad
HQ - Lord Commissar

Troops - Platoon command squad

Heavy Weapons Squad

Heavy - Leman Russ squadron
3 bundles no command squad
HQ - Tank Commander with 2 extra Leman Russes

This would give any player a reasonable start to a guard force, from there you can add more infantry, chimera's, wyverns, etc and you have yourself a decently sized guard force.

every armor collumn needs cannon fodder, and every infantry platoon needs armor support, I see nothing wrong with fielding 1 or 2 of these and just picking up a chimera or 2, a basi and an HQ

Would suggest a wyvern over a basilisk. Or even a vendetta. :P
