It depends of how you want to play your Guard army.I personally go for infantry as I think it's a bit more realistic that all tanks and artillery.

I believe that an IG army plays best as a mixture.

the most effective army list on a points-per-kill basis is a SIGAFH. just 3 platoons, every squad with an Hweapon and a Sweapon. maybe a russ.

More Guard = More Dead Enemies of the Emperor.

Mass Guardsmen are the best, all anti tank will be wasted, and so will all heavy infanty weapons. Lascannons in the imfantry for anti tank, or heavy bolter for anti infantry.
