This army is intended for 2 vs 2 tournament (1000 pts for each player in team). My partner most probably is gonna be generic Space Marine. Most of my opponents will be MEQ or tyranids.
Junior Officer + Honorifica + Power Sword
Commissar + Plasma Pistol + Power Sword
4 guardsmen ( + veteran medic + plasma + Standard Bearer)
10 guardsmen + heavy bolter + grenade launcher
10 guardsmen + autocannon + grenade launcher
Junior Officer + Power Pickaxe
4 Guardsmen + 2 Flamers
10 Guardsmen + missile launcher + plasma
10 guardsmen+ missile launcher + grenade launcher
4 Guardsmen + Heavy Bolter
Leman Russ + sponsons heavy bolters + hull lascannon
Basilisk + indirect fire
Sergeant + 4 hardened veterans + 2 meltas + krak grenades
Drop Troops regiment.
Currently I'm considering removing commissar and probably something else to save about 60 points and use them for:
a) another squad of 10 men + heavy bolter + some special weapon;
b) heavy weapons team (heavy bolter, autocannon, mortar, etc.). I've got at least 4 yet-unassembled heavy weapons teams (or probably more; depends on what I want to assemble). E.g. I could make 3 autocannons.
Thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions And also could you say what kind of SM would fit best as a partner for this IG ? Probably close-combat oriented one?

THis list is difficult to understand because you have not said what doctrines your using
i'd say drop the commissar. They are bad ass and all but not worth the points that much, especially at 1000pts. I also would maybe turn the bassie into a 2nd russ with the extra points and down grade the hull las cannon to a heavy bolter if you like. I find them to work better but its really up to your preference.
Also your LD is a little iffy, might I suggest close order drill and maybe veteran sgts? a free doctrine and a few extra points will boost you up to LD9.
As for your ally, I'd say go mobile shooting backed up with a nice CC unit. Also maybe have him/her take some low AP anti-tank weapons to make up for your lack of them. That should take care of any Big bugs and tanks that get thrown at you.
good luck! Hope this helps
Thank you, RocketRollRebel. Then Commissar is definitely out, and for the rest I still need to think it over.
