Infantry Guard are exceptionally easy to kill: you'll need a friggin' ton of them to win a match, alternately you need to be facing someone who's bad enough to lose to it. I tried pulling out two 30 man blobs a little while ago with hectic tank support and I got rolled every time by a pal I was teaching how to play the game. It was awesome for him and ultimately fun but I would sell those infantry blobs before putting them back on the table. I don't have the patience for an army I explicitly need 100+ models to play an average game with in a hopes that my opponent is willing to play their army down to my level so I can have fun.

Conversely, my mechanized Guard lists are nigh undefeated in battle and bringing that list allows my opponent to actually play the game instead of walking on the eggshells that are my Guardsmen's broken skeletons.

The Mont'Ka campaign book has a bunch of Guard Formations, one of which is essentially a 50 man Guard blob. Yikes. Another is a swanky Basilisk/Manticore combo with a Command Squad that can issue the Ignore Cover order on any of the tanks from the Formation. Very Nice.
