First off, Imperial gaurd are never small and elite. They depend on masses of troops armed with a varity of special and heavy weapons.

The only thing you can do is cheap out on the troop choices and take 2 minimal 2 troops in Chimiras then use your left over points on as many storm trooper and ratling snipers as you can.

The only other "small and leet" IG force is the Armored company, but thats a army made from tanks, and tanks get some bad rules when it comes to cityfight rules.

Technically, you can make a Grenadier-heavy force, but it will only really work in 1000pts or less. Anything more, and you tend to get ripped apart.

Actually the kind of thing i want is hanging around the 1000pt-1500pt mark. And it stocks up on small teams of eliet troops (like assult teams and stuff), i will still have the 2 troops choices and stuff (maybe some conscripts as cheap front liners)

Conscripts are not good they cost more points than regulars and are slightly weaker. Tanks are better to have at the front line and troops behind.

i find tanks too be annoying, all they do is collect rounds in the hull until they cant take no more and go BOOM.
i also dont like tank (unless its the basky) as there annoying too paint and cost a ton (i can buy a pack of men that last longer in battle for the same amount)

But tanks also carry more heavy weapons than a unit of men even if there all upgraded. Any way tanks can flatten a unit of elder units.
