What other units can you take in an IG army? I've heard of people talking about Inquistors and things like that. How about Assassins?
if you check the codex: witchhunters or daemonhunters, you can use about all of the units in those as allies, there's a page that explains the requirements for what to use. on the flipside, some imperial guard units can be inducted into use in an inquisitor's army.
assassins are included as possible allied units, but like a ---hunter army, you have to take an inquisitor or inquisitor lord to include the assassin (or 3 daemonhosts if you're on the radical side of the law).
As for taking an assassin, you have to take an inquisitor lord since you can only have 1 elite choice.
Imperial Guard: 3000 pts
Chaos Daemons: 1000 pts
You can take 1 HQ, 1 Elite, 2 troops, and 1 Fast Attack choice as allies from BOTH the WitchHunters and DemonHunters codex.
your normal Force Org chart will apply, but you could essentially have an IG force with noting but 2 Grenadiers, a Command platoon, and IG tanks with the rest of the troops being taken from the WH and DH codex.
I recommend going only 1 way on the troops though. don't try to split between both Ordos. WH are devastating rapid fire troops, with faith tricks to turn the tide on important rolls.
DH troops are GK's. good all-round troops, masters of none.
DH Inq. Lords make better shooty retinues, WH Inq. Lords make more survivable retinues.
I know there have been threads before on the advantages of using both ordos as allies in IG forces, and as Parent lists with inducted guard.
The absolute best use of a ally is an allied Grey Knight Brother Captain, with Psychic Hood.
That's a LD 10 psychic hood for 81 points.
And, to boot he's in terminator armour, kicks ass in melee with many S6, Power weapon, high Init and WS attacks.

Storm troopers, i actaully heard about a battle where it was Inquisition vs. Imperial Guard well i'm pretty sure it was, but yea it took place on a gym floor for 3 weeks, i think it was about 14,000 points a team, teams of two.
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
