Does anyone have any advice for starting WW1 style IG army without using death korp of krieg models?

If you don't want to use the DKOK then the only real easy option is use cadians and a few little touches. Bolt-action lasguns, back-packs, other carried equipment and give the officers whistles and revolvers (I like the revolver idea).

I think that a lot can be done by giving the soldiers respirator bags and simpler lasrifles with wooden stocks, like so:
And perhaps, if you're good at it, give them baggy pants and a blue red color scheme:

Here are a few shots of my game buddy's WWI IG based on the Bretonian conversion. He did it by mix/matching them. Total of some 100 infantry IIRC. Also nice tanks to go with it. This was a IG vs IG battle.
also here is an image of my current IG army. While not WWI, it is close...well sort of indiana Jones meets the Foriegn legion. Pics of infantry and tank:

The Bretonian conversion is classic, and probably reasonably cheap considering its all plastic sprues. Another, more expensive idea might be headswapping Mordian models onto other models, to get the distinctive peaked caps you sometimes see.
Otherwise, you can sort of simulate the death corps look, plus gas-masks, by using Steel Legion models. I'm not sure they're much cheaper than forgeworld anymore though.
