Some time in the near future I will be fighting Imperial Guard in a annihilation pitched battle.
The idea is to use the broadsides to destroy vehicles then high value infantry.
The stealth suits will pick off the fringes of his force and if reduced to one or two models fall back to maximum range to deny kill points.
He typically deploys into a corner so I will outflank the kroot and try to tie up some squads in CC.
The fire warriors will stay in reserve for as long as possible.
The firestorm crisis suits will destroy light vehicles then be used as anti-horde.
The commander will try to quickly eliminate the most dangerous heavy weapon teams, then move onto anti-horde.

Is there anything that I have overlooked? Any flaws in my strategy you can see? I'm looking for any advice you can give.

List was a complete failure. I still think it was a solid list but there was a bunch of problems.
He took no vehicles. Just heavy weapon teams.
Table was 6x4 and I deployed second, diagonally, thinking I could avoid the first turn of shooting and get into range. All my suits were gunned down before getting to shoot..
My stealth suits didn't get to shoot. On turn two he deep struck storm troopers into rapid fire range and killed every stealth suit in one volley.
The terrain was lack-luster. Only 6 pieces of area terrain, three of which had destroyed tanks for LOS blocking.
In the end it was 4-2KP, so even though is the game had continued indefinitely I wouldn't have scored again, I like to think it was close. My two kills were the storm troopers (which were assaulted by outflanking kroot) and Sgt Malbro (I think that's his name) who was used to suicide a large blast marker.
What have I learned? Even if it means enduring a round of shooting deploy close.
If I take stealth suits again they will be at least two smaller teams.
At low point games don't bring more than one broadside. You are better off bringing a HH against horde for the pie plate.
against guard, take hammerheads. They have the capacity to kill the tanks, and when all the tanks are gone, they have sub-munitions, which can kill lots of troops easy.
Deep strike battle suits. They can't withstand foot slogging. Jump them behind cover when finished shooting.
Tau disimbarking from a devilfsh get a 4+ cover save from the drone things. Use this be getting up close to the guard, and then jump out and rapid-fire all of them
