Default Gue'vessa Army?

could you create an entire Gue'vessa (human, right?) army, made of imperial guard guys with added tau equipment? It could be a fringe world army for the tau.
suggestions? comments? snurgles? flames?

Just convert Imperial Guard to look like Tau.

You probably wouldn't be able to change much of the rules though......

I kinda decided against an entirely Gue'va army, as it is not necessarily unfluffy, but would just kinda suck. i plan to use lots of gue'va as the troops choices, and then use the strenghts of the tau (crisis suits, broadsides, and HH, and some stealths and pathfinders).

but here are the doctrines:

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: Carapace Armor
Infantrymen have Carapace Armor instead of Flak Armor.

SKILLS AND DRILLS: Close Order Drill
Infantrymen have been trained in close combat.

SKILLS AND DRILLS: Xeno-Fighters
Infantrymen are trained to tackle specific alien threats.

RESTRICTED TROOPS: Special Weapon Squad
The army can now include Special Weapon Squads.

RESTRICTED TROOPS: Heavy Weapon Platoon
The army can now include Heavy Weapon Platoons.

You realize that you actually missed the whole point, right?
You can't use Imperial Guard with doctrines and then go and throw in choices from another Codex - you can take the Chapter Approved Gue'Vesa as Troops in a Tau army, or you can take Doctrined Imperial Guard solo... you're not playing mix-and-match with codecies, as fun as it would be.

Why close order drill, to protect the Tau from CC?

Yes you can, but it would require a lot of house rules etc (for a full Gue'Vesa Detachment). The only real rules-legal units you can take are Human Auxilliaries, and the closest thing to a Gue'Vesa army (CA/Rules-legal) would be maxing out a normal tau army with Human Auxilliaries along with the standard codex units (so you would have an army partially composed of Gue'Vesa) along with Crisis/Stealth suits, Hammerheads etc.
