Im new to the 40k scene and this is my first attempt at putting together a guard army. CCS1 i put together before i knew what i was doing, all the others were put together with the models I had on hand. Would like to know if this list is legal?Any advice would be welcome. by the way this list was put together to battle my nephews Tau army.
Cmdr. – Plasma Pistol
2 Grenade Launchers
Chimera – Multi-laser/Heavy Flamer, Heavy Stubber
Armored Sentinels (3)
All i can say is you should pick a role for the CCS1, i know you built them before you started playing(i Made that mistake too). I would say go will all plasma guns in that squad, Or GLs, I personally like the Gls, there cheap, and you dont kill your self with them. Also that mortar there not very good in infantry Squads but thats just my experience. I Hope this Helped and maybe someone else will give you some more help.
HQ: Take one CCS with 3-4 meltas or plasmas in a chimera. Add a standard if you feel the need.
Troops: PCS is perfect, take AC/GL in both squads. Vets should take 3 meltas or plasmas in a chimera.
Fast: OK, Drop as many as needed to buy your chimeras.
3 chimeras armed with meltas/plasmas/flamers and a static fire support force able to hold home objectives from in cover. Then you have some outflankers to contest and shoot tanks in the side.

I agree with Mad Cat. Veterans are very powerful units but you need to get up close with them and unleash their firepower at close range. 3x BS4 plasma or melta guns in a chimera is effective at all points levels and can engage a really huge range of targets. On the other hand a single BS4 missile launcher is a bit crap. Missiles are fine but you need lots of them (there's a reason why Space Wolf players spam them by the dozen).
I'd be tempted to drop the armoured sentinels down to scout sentinels to keep up the firepower and give you some mobility (via outflanking) if you need it. Some lists are really undone if you can get in behind them allowing you to pop vehicles in the rear armour or just walk up and assault something you want taken care of.
