well, which one is causing you the most trouble? As a medium i would say crisis suits are best for you. you can have them with either TL plasma and targetting array (my favorite against marines) or burst cannon and missle pod/flamer against guards.

you should have more than enough guns to really cause some pain for the guard. use submunitions to knock out loads in one turn, and keep the lascannon team under the template, then you shouldnt have much trouble. how many guardsmen are there all together?

Take out the command squad. Really important to remeber: They cost more and die just as easily. The marine command squad needs some seeker missiles to teach them the meaning of pain.

Get more firewarriors, then, (10-15 more), our pulse rifles are more then enough to get through guard armour. Also take good advantage of that submunition railgun, it can take down several guardsmen a turn. As for the marines you should get some crisis battlesuits, as for what weapons you put on them: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=22169.0, as for the eldar player, he needs to finish his squads, so go with either dark reapers, or rangers.
