This should be in the General 40k mod.

But now I ask you this; which range of models interest you between Space marines and Imperial Guard? The one that you like most is the answer you seek.

Guard Faults:

You may also want to consider Daemon Hunters or Witch Hunters. They can use guard or marines. My current Daemon hunter set up uses inducted Guard with a Death Watch Kill Team to fill in the marine role, but you can also Grey Knights. Both Daemon Hunters and Witch Hunters have very good wargear section, although I perfer the Daemon Hunters for the Pyscanon.

On the downside Grey Knights and Sisters of Battle only come in metal, and both books are rather old ( 3rd ed I believe ).
