Well, you'll also want ARP for MAC address discovery and ICMP to report

You might not have NAT (I don't) so a firewall is likely to be useful.

The OP specified IPv6, here you require Neighbour Discovery and there is
no NAT so definitely consider a firewall.

Also consider the internet connection, you may need to run PPPoE to a
xDSL modem or similar.

I expect there's probably more even in a minimalist solution.
