what is the best way to build a horde army for the guard, conscripts and blob squads?
Don't bother with conscripts as for one more point you get normal guardsmen.
Take a CCs with standard and vox and put camo on them too as chopping off the orders would be a decent enemy tactic.
Take PCS with GLs and vox. Then add Blobs of 30-50 with a single commisar and vox. Put PF or PW on the squad leaders and add a few flamers or GLs too. HWS are your main anti tank weapons and should stick close to the CCS for bring it down orders and the standard bearer for morale.
Consider the PCS upgrade of Alrahim for massed outflanking or Straken for counter attack and FC. A few penal legion can be fun too for stubborn and the scout rule allowing them to outflank.
Finally an armoured sentinel or two can help. A lascannon on them helps out with tanks but their main use is to babysit the blobs and engage in hand to hand any infantry units that are a threat to you in combat. Tie them up in useless combats for a few turns while your infantry deal with other targets.
