Lets see.... they were more elite, so, Carapace, Sharpshooters, Grenadiers, Storm troopers.

Go heavy armor, no artilery. Maybe head for an armoured assault with infantry backing up?

I say "PANZER GRENADIERS"! Storm Troopers mounted in Chimeras. Just take the Grenadier doctrine and you're done. Also take Carapace Armor for your Command Squad in your Command Platoon. Can't be leaving them out less armored than the grunts

If you want to go background...

2 normal russ and 1 Demolisher.

AKA Higher number of Panzers than Tigers.

Darker, either a dark grey or a lighter black (same thing almost)

Dark socks, boots, gun. Dark everything really.

Get a color picture of a Panzer Grenadier; officers, soldiers and vehicles, and go from there
