hi if you just starting first what have you already got
then if you are going tallarn you should make use of their doctrine a lot and shorter ranged fire fights than most are ok for tallarn your tanks should support your flanks but move under half spead so you can make use of grinding advance.
spearhead
i would reconmend getting a pask/tank commander in punisher(depends how competetive-pask or fluffy- commander) then an executioner, battle tank and demolisher. always use sponsoons take lascannon exept for punnisher when all heavy bolters.
then get a wyvern which are beast and either a manticore or basalisk depending what your local opponents usually bring.

battalion

lord commisar(cheaper than normal one for some reason)
company commander
3 infantry squads only one fith a flamer as you will try avoiing being within 8 inches the grenade launcher and melta gun fom command squad box. always take vox as you'll be moving lots and you should keep your command squad back further

vanguard
second company commander
command squad with vox medi pack standard and putin nxt to the lord commisar who then has Ld11 to share with guardsmen
one vet squad built more close quarters
either ratlings( actually much better than seem) or varient of ogryn
normal commisar

aux
valkarye filled with vets normal commisar and commander
with valk if you plan on getting more equip with multi rockets and laser machine gun or hell with las cannon if not las cannon with multi rockets. also bring heavy bolters. remember to use jump out of it at any point rule well, never hover unless really need to destroy somthing which you get +1 to hit but you die much faster.


valk for a smaller game is better than chimera as only 30 point more base but toucher faster and option for lots more weapons

i havent added these points up but im pretty sure its roughly 1000

for some larger games you might want to sway valks for chimeras but thats if you want even more quantity but i prefer valks just for vets and no other transports
finally by the vulture fw as soon as possible with punisger cannons as its ammazing

the flesh tearers really like killing so much. they love doing it to people face's just they like doing it to their buddies as well.

thanks for the tips. I only have enough for about a 500 point army at the moment, though I do need more diversity so I ca get more than just the 3 command points for being battle forged...

yeah just ask me if yo need any tips on guard one thing that I forgot to mention is saint Celestine as she will give all imperium infantry around her a 5+ invun and other cool things like coming back to life and being something you point it to and the target disappears. im regretting not getting her earlier and always use her with both body guards. she lso looks amazing and is a beauty to paint but her alone not including body guards took me 7 hours

Hey what is your army at the moment and quick tip for tanks never stick the weapons on just paint where they push in then they stay there but you can change it whenever you want.

Are you just using the tallarn tactics or models too? if you're looking for compatible 3rd party bits to convert to tallarns, look at these:
