I have about £60-70 to start collecting a Guard army next month

What would you recommend I buy?

I already have the codex, and the Creed special character. :grin:

Cheers in advance guys.

Heya Goggs! Welcome to HO.

You have the codex, so you're a step ahead of the usual. Start with 2 boxes of Cadians, and a Chimera. A Weapon Team box would be a good idea too. This will get you the minimal 1 HQ and 2 Troops necessary to play most games and is a good starting point for a Guard army.

JO w/ 2 Grenade Launchers, Mortar (or whatever conversions make you giddy)
Jo w/ Heavy Bolter, 2 Grenade Launchers
- Squad w/ Missile Launcher, Grenade Launcher
- Squad w/ Lascannon, Grenade Launcher
Fist w/ Autocannon, Grenade Launcher
- Chimera w/ Multilaser, Heavy Bolter

A little bit of sprue cutting will be needed to make an additional tripod or two, but one box of heavy weapons can outfit a small (very small) army of roughly 500pts. You may have a few points to spare.

Or, if using doctrines, An Command Squad box and a box of Kasrkin will get you a complete army, though it really doesn't work well (or look too good) at such small levels.

Honestly, the IG Battle Force Boxed Set should get you where you need to be. If you can afford two then you will have a decent sized army.
