Hey guys this is a 2000 pt army list designed fo fighting mostly space marines but i am going to face necrons, orks, tau, sister, etc..pretty much everything so any suggestions would be greatly appriecated
A couple of things:
I like all the firepower, but in a 2000pt list I would add a Basilisk, in big games Bassies shine.
I would give the HSO a mortar and let him lead and putter away with the Mortar. Add a Standard to the HQ, with all those HW platoons, it will come in handy. I would also recommend two cheap doctorines, Close Order Drill and Iron Discipline.
To keep your line troops safer, I prefer Cameoline to Carapace. It is 10pts cheaper per squad and more effective IMO, unless you are fighting a lot of CC armies.
To make your Stormies More effective I would Deepstike them, or mount them in a Chimera.
I would outfit your Platoon HQ with Mortars as well, keep out of LOS, and pluck away.
I'm not sure how the Single Sentinal will do, but maybe no one will bother.....
Overall your list is quite good. You have good choices for your line squads with Heavy/Special weapons.
Add a Lascannon to the Hardened Vets and you have a game winner. ...... Sure Deepstrike your termies!

seems like a well rounded list... may want to not take carapace armor, it doesnt seem so great to me, all those points on only a 50% chance of saving. Id take more squads, but hell, now you get a save against those pesky bolters!
And im also not sure about sharpshooters... Needed in heavy and special squads, but not so sure about the infantry squads.
I'm going to agree with the consensus that carapace armor isn't worth it (raising the base cost of a guardsman from 6 to 8, and a messy modelling requirement both suck horrendously), and I'll go one further by telling you to ditch the sharp shooters upgrade also. Re-rolling the dice only when you get a "1" and then only having a 50% chance to hit on that re-roll means that for every 12 shots fired, you'll statistically score 7 hits instead of 6. Not really worth 10 points per unit if you ask me. Ditching those two upgrades saves you 270 points which would be like 3 more infantry squads with special and heavy weapons.
The recommendation of a Basilisk is a very good one, especially if given the indirect fire option. Bassies rock, and will frustrate your opponent to no end. Personally I'd drop the Ratling squad unless you know for sure that you're gonna have to fight several Wraith Lord and/or C'tan. They're expensive and sniper rifles suck against anything with a decent armor save. Then I'd split your Storm Trooper squad into two, add on two more meltas and deep strike, and you get some real nice anti-tank firepower. And unless you're planning on doing some infantry charges, I'd scrounge up a few points and upgrade more of your grenade launchers to plasma guns, for extra punch against marines, necrons, and others. And one final note, that all-lascannon anti-tank squad is starting the game with a sign over its head saying "Shoot the f***ing sh*t out of me!!," and your opponent will follow the sign's instructions. You might want to move a lascannon or two to a line squad and replace them in the anti-tank squad with missile launchers. A little more versatility and your opponent will hopefully be less inclined to make them his first priority in shooting.
