    OK, after a ton of drafting and then looking at model effectiveness vs how I can buy them efficiently, I'm coming down towards this force:

    Command squad: Mortar. (55)

    TROOPS

    Black-2: Leman Russ MBT, 1 hull Heavy Bolters, track guards. (150)
    Black-3: Leman Russ MBT, 1 hull Heavy Bolters, track guards. (150)

    1,019 pts.



    And, expanded to 1500 pts:

    Mortar Squad Weapon (10)

    First Squad -- Sniper Rifle, Plasma Gun, Light Infantry (87)
    Second Squad -- Sniper Rifle, Plasma Gun, Light Infantry (87)
    Third Squad -- 8 Guardsmen, 1 Plasma Gunner, Light Inf. (70)

    AF Squad (172)
    10 Guardsmen, one upgraded to a Vet. Sgt with shotgun,one flamer (72)
    Chimera w/Multi-laser, hull heavy bolter, track guards (100)

    AF Squad (172)
    10 Guardsmen, one upgraded to a Vet. Sgt with shotgun,one flamer (72)
    Chimera w/Multi-laser, hull heavy bolter, track guards (100)

    HEAVY SUPPORT (340)
    Leman Russ w/hull bolter, armor, track guards (170)
    Leman Russ w/hull bolter, armor, track guards (170)

    TOTAL: 1,497


    I posted these in the army lists forum, but they'll get more specific attention here. Do I have enough and varied enough firepower? It's a Guard list with no HW squads, which is weird, and may be ineffective.

    Strip all that stuff off your officers (It is too expensive for what it will do). Your characters are there for their leadership bonuses not combat expertise. You haven't gone over the top, but I think points can be spent elsewhere more effectively.

    Get rid of the mortar squad (they are very innacurate and are lucky to kill what they are worth in points). Fit in a Basilisk as a Heavy Support Choice. It is an powerful weapon, accurate, harder to kill and cheap, making it far better than a mortar squad IMO.

    Also you may have problems with remaining steadfast on the field of battle. Give them a MVOX system with a HSO, or JO + Commissar. It's slightly more expensive than upgrading every squad with a veteran sergeant but every squad gets Ld 9 (10 If Commissar executes JO). It's benefits far outweigh the costs.

    You may also consider to have two platoons of 2 squads each and scrap the Armoured Fist squad. I dont find chimeras that useful, especially when it is transporting weak guardsmen. Maybe add a squad of Stormtroopers w/ melta guns, or Sentinels, as a shock unit instead?

    Hope that helps.
