Well guys I have finally come up with the idea that the three regiments I had been kicking around to just have them take up the role of the best troops of the entire planet. As for the rest of the infantry I have ideas for doctorines and was hoping what everyone's thoughts were on them.
Xenofighters (Dark Eldar)
and I don't know if I should choose between either Close Order Drill, or Hardened Fighters.
I was hoping what everyone thought about this, since the idea is that their usual recruits tend to be drugged up gang members who've been taught older fighting techniques against Dark Eldar raiding parties with some of the elite troops being sent in as "advisors" for the troops.
I'll be damned before the soldiers of the Emperor are just left to rot!

I think you should go with Close Order Drill over Hardened Fightseers. Close Order Drill is free while Hardened Fighters isn't and +1 to LD and I is worth way more than +1 to WS. Although Hardened Fighters sounds like it would fit in more with your fluff, Close Order Drill would make your guys seem really well trained and disciplined.

Its nice that you want to make a characterful force but anything thats aids you in combat against dark elder apart from close order drill is a waste as they are a lot better then any of your troops point for point and it will cost you a ton just to give your men a chance.
Take close order drill as its free and only put Sharpshooters on squads with heavy bolters or autocannons as these are the two most important weapons when fighting dark elder. You could say that only a few of your most hardened veterans survived the first raid and since then they have become expert at combating the dark elder hence Sharpshooters and Xenofighters if you like.
