Okay so, my army lists uses Carapace armor, and so every infantry model in my army has Carapace. And, I just realized that I have no idea how to model it . What would you guys suggest?
Blobs of greenstuff to bulk up the preexisting armor plates. Anything more ambitious is unworkable for a horde army unless you're a serious modeller.

Both are good options. I personally used plasticard though it can be hard to get it to look right. I used a bit of greenstuff on them as well. As you wont have to do hellguns I'd go with a mass produced method of thigh protection and something over their faces, then perhaps something on the arms.
Try to just bulk out the amrour a little (as said above) this will be the simplest way on a hoard army.
hope that helps
Thanks, I'll give both methods a try and see which one works best for me. Cheers!
what, exactly, is plasticard?
It's thin sheets of plastic. (but in the US it's more commonly called styrene.)

Like marrius said, there is no generic carapace armour, and people can't penalise you. Guardsmen look armoured enough to be honset in my opinon, maybe just shin/elbow armour made from blobs of greenstuff. That way it can always be peeled off later if you decide to remove carapace armour.
