Still in the process of collecting models, thought I'd draw up a list to get an idea of what it'll feel like at 2k points. Still haven't played a game with them yet, so no clue how this will work out. I feel like I need more models at 2k points, but like I said, I'm new at these guys Eldar is my forte, but its time for something new. Any comments would be appreciated! (if its really good I'll even rep you )

5th? Cool. WotLK? Also cool.
I would agree, unless you're going down a very special interpretation Guard are very much about numbers and guns generally and this list looks a little light to me at any rate.
Specific points for me would be:
Camo & Commissars - they are taking a large chunk of points you could spend on infantray squads.
Stormtroopers I'd swap give these plasma and the chimera.
I'm not sure about the chimera wepaon fit, but I can see how it migh complement the hellhound.
Vets plasma & melta isn't a good combination - give them all melta and deep strike these guys, consider a smaller squad too.
The lone sentinel won't last long - either drop it or add another squadron of 1?
Otherwise it's not bad, although if you roll "1" a lot you're in trouble with all that plasma!!
