Default what is the best troop choice for Guard?

i am making a 1500 point Demonhunter army

i am gonna use imperial guard to augment it as per the rules in the DH codex.

it says i can use Imperial guard infantry platoon, and armored fist squad.

Can imperial guard infantry platoon be lazcannon squads? what would be a good troop choice?

i have grey knights and it seem there only weakness is not alot of tank busters.

i wanna spend about 200 - 250 points on troop choices ..... but it could be more if theres enough tank busting shots( laz- melta) comming from it.

Any help would be greatly apreciated

well Las-cannon teams can be taken in a basic troop platoon as fire support and then 1 extra per squad giving you a max total of 5 lascannons in a platoon. Great fire power. but you might want to think about a heavy bolter, auto cannon and a missile launcher as well, just for some diversity. Also you may take 1 special weapon per squad as well, i.e. you melta guns! ;D.

If you take a chimera use Armoured fist squads to your advantage.

In basic my choice here would be.
3x heavy weapons team (1 squad)- Lascannon, missile launcher, heavy bolter.
1x Armoured fist squad- Comm-link, Melta gun, plasma pistol
1x Guard infantry squad- Auto cannon, plasma gun, comm link

diverse fire power backed with decent numbers. Good armour killers (both tanks and units) and the comm link will give you some extra LD.
:P hope this helps

yeah. go with jd. the best troop choice though is the armored fist, since you can bring more power th the game. and chimeras are cheesy
