It depends on what your army consists of and what its geared toward killing (if anything in particular.)

My Catachan army uses
Jungle fighters (free)
Light infantry (free)
Hardened fighters (free)


And then another 2 doctrines go in there to complete it

So where are the Grenadiers, and General Infantry?

Locked for incompleteness. The "best" Guard army is Undoctrinated SIGAFH; the army that has been tried and tested since the Rogue Trader days.

Like I said, I have over thirty years of proof that SIGAFH is the best way to play Guard. Guard has always been Guard because of the huge tanks and loads of guns, not because they can jump out of a flyer or don't trip over every tree root in a forest. There is a reason that Cadians (despite all their flaws...) are the "iconic" Guard army.
