Default 1000 IG scenario army

This is a list I'm going to be using for a game next week. Its imperial guard vs Imperial guard. Were going to be playing meat grinder, and I'm going to be defending a side of the board that has 2 bunkers. The guy I'm playing plays a totally mechanized army. I've made this list with 2 things in mind. I want to be sort of effective, but I also just want to have fun so I am not totally tailored to just blowing up all his chimeras first/second turn. I'm kinda hoping for an army I could actually see out on the field, and not just a bunch of lascannons and leman russes.

HQ - 211
Senior Officer - Stormbolter and Powerweapon
2 Grenade Launchers
2 Lasguns
1 Commissar - Stormbolter and Powerweapon
--Attached Mortar squad
Elites - 142
Hardened Veteran Squad
3 Laspistol and CCW
3 Plasma Guns
1 Lascannon team
Sarge with stormbolter and powerweapon
Troops - 537
Platoon 1
Command Squad
Junior Officer - Bolt pistol and CCW
2 Grenade Launchers
2 Lasguns
Commissar with stormbolter and power weapon
Squad 1
Missle Launcher
Grenade Launcher
7 Lasguns
Sarge with laspistol and CCW
Squad 2
Missle Launcher
Grenade Launcher
7 Lasguns
Sarge with laspistol and CCW
Platoon 2
Command Squad
Junior Officer - Bolt Pistol and CCW
Heavy Bolter team
3 lasguns
Squad 1
Plasma Gun
Missle Launcher
7 lasguns
Sarge with Bolt Pistol and CCW
Squad 2
Plasma Gun
Lascannon
7 lasguns
Sarge with bolt pistol and CCW
Fast Attack - 115
Hellhound
Total - 1005

Plan is for lascannons to go for his leman russes, while missles for chimeras. When he reaches my lines I'll have my officers that have commissars with them leading the charge against the enemy soldiers.

It looks pretty effective to me given that it won't have to move. I might suggest putting a chimera into the list somewhere simply so you can quickly reinforce an weakened area.

Nice, the hellhound is a good touch but there might not be enough tanks?! >

Well the stakes were just raised to 1500 points and I'm not sure what to add. I could put in 3 leman russes, but I know that hes going to be packing 2 russes of his own along with 6 lascannon sentinels. Maybe I'll just pile in more infantry. Thanks for the comments thus far.

if that is the case, lots of infantry with meltas, plasma,or grenade launchers are what you need against your opponent. try for some autocannons to deal with the sentinels, and hope for the best against the russes, just hope those missiles hit it.

Alright here is the 1500 point I think I will be using.

HQ
Senior Officer - Bolt Pistol and Power fist
Commissar - Power Weapon and Stormbolter
3 Grenade Launchers
1 Master Vox
--Fire Support Squad - 3 Heavy Bolters

Elite
1 Stormtrooper Seargent - CCW and Hellpistol
4 Stormtroopers - Melta gun, plasma gun, 2Hellguns
--Deepstrike

Hardened Veteran Seargent - Power weapon and stormbolter
8 Hardened Veterans - 3 Plasma Guns, 1 Lascannon, 4 laspistol and CCW

Troops
Platoon 1
Command
Junior Officer - Stormbolter and Power weapon
Commissar - Stormbolter and Power weapon
2 Grenade Launchers
2 Lasguns
Squad 1
Seargent - Laspistol and CCW
Grenade Launcher
Missle Launcher
Voxcaster
7 Lasguns
Squad 2
Seargent - Laspistol and CCW
Plasma
Missle Launcher
Voxcaster
7 Lasguns
Platoon 2
Command
Junior Officer - Power Weapon and Stormbolter
2 Grenade Launchers
2 Lasguns
Squad 1
Seargent - Laspistol and CCW
Grenade Launcher
Missle Launcher
Voxcaster
7 Lasguns
Squad 2
Seargent - Laspistol and CCW
Grenade Launcher
Lascannon
Voxcaster
7 Lasguns
Squad 3
Seargent - Laspistol and CCW
Plasma Gun
Lascannon
Voxcaster
7 Lasguns
Fast Attack
Sentinel with Lascannon
Heavy Support
Leman Russ - Lascannon and Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Leman Russ - Lascannon and Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Total - 1503

Alright, before everyone jumps on me for having officers with power weapons and stormbolters let me explain my reasoning. When he inevitably reaches my lines with his chimeras I am going to have the 3 command squads move, fire with the stormbolters, and then bum rush whatever squad with all of the initiative 4 power weapon attacks. The powerfist on my senior officer I realize is probably totally useless, but when I make an army I like my leader to stand out and hes converted so he does stand out from the other officers. Thanks for the help so far and how does this list look?

Drop the heavy bolter sponsors. The Russ's should be either popping chimeras or chewing up infantry with the battle cannon. Use the points for something. Maybe a cut off 5 points somewhere else and stick in a suprise Honorifica Imperialis.

This is about the 1500 point list. All i can say is sentinels don't do well alone you might want to think about adding a second or third one in your army.

Um, how did the battle go?

Can you let me know what worked well against him? What mistakes he made?

(With luck, I can learn from this)
