I've played a little bit of guard with mixed results. Usually you might want to have 2-3 blobs with commissar/priest and some meltabombs and poweraxe. The guards are fine with grenade launchers.
Those guys need to be supported by some tanks: i suggest wyverns, executioners and maybe some eradicator if your meta has lot of cover. as antitank i suggest you grab a couple of the "start collecting" Scions boxes and use the formation therein. a couple of deepstriking , recycling squads of scions with meltaguns, two tauroxes with scions command squads as support for the blobs...sounds fun. if you have enough points you could also take a couple valkyries or vendettas with some flamer teams inside for objective grabbing.
Also, if you have them, infiltrating sentinels with autocannons can be fun, if not really effective, to grab some objectives, get linebreaker and harass enemy rearguard.
This said, IG is one of the worst codices out there at the moment, sadly. Expect no easy game and be prepared to get some prostate examinations by the average list of Eldar, Tau, Necron and Space Marines in general.

The calls of Slaneesh stir so deeply within me, as if I was birthed from the very essence of it. For my ambition to infinitely ascend above all is never ending, like fire within it burns me to ever cindering ash. Lord of light and ascension is who I am, realities burn to ash at my very passing. My luminescence is unparalleled for I am luminosity itself, all light is but a shadow of my silhouette
