A year or two ago I was pretty into Guard and I had about 2000 points, winning about half my games and having a good time, then I spent a semester abroad and put my army in storage, from which only 2/3 of them returned. So i've been rebuilding with a catachan theme in mind. I used to have lots of tanks and lots of fodder and i just threw both at my opponents, but hopefully this list is a bit more stealthy and has more finesse, I could use all the feedback you can give me, and advice on whether i should bulk up to 2000 points (the leman russ punisher looks awesome and I may want one) or strip to 1500. thanks for your help!

alright a couple ofthings stand out in your list that need adjusting if you want to win a game (not meant to be harsh).
Alright Col straken is agiven but he needs to be counterattacking. you have in a squad with snipers and a master of ordance. Both need to be stationary to be effective. instead you should buy a priest with evrator have a standard, 3 vets with pistol and sword, 2 bodyguards( for bodies).
sniper rifles are fluffy for catachen but as a special weapon its just awful. sniper rifles are devastating in groups of 5 or more but 1 is lacking.
I think you also need to run al rahem in one of your platoons and rename him with a catchen name . What better to represent an ambush then come in for reserve,
Here is how i would redo your list.
Col. Straken, Standard, Priest with evcrator, 3 vets with ccw and pistol, 2 bodyguards
comander, ordance officer, astropath, mortar team
Catchen al rahem 4 flamers
3 squads with mela guns
officer, missle launcher, 2 guardsmen
3 squads with misslelauncher/ grenade launcher
1 heavy weapon teams with 3 heavy bolter
1 heavy weapon with mortars
3 melta guns
3 meta guns
2 valkrie missle pods/ heavy bolters ( vets go in here)
As you can see i have re done or configure stuff. I picture a jungle fighting team escuing tanks in favor of rapid moving. your anti-tank comes from the scores of melta guns. Colstraken will attack any thing that comes near your line and the commnication team stays outof sight. the stro path will help you with your reserve rolls. depnding on the mission you can have most of your army come in from the flanks, valkriesare a kin to helicopetrs and thus very usefull to an srmy of jungle fighters. hope this helps.
this does help a lot, thank you
