In the codex, where it says "Imperial Guard Unit" does that mean the Guard infantry thing before the doctorines or any IG infantry unit?
Page number, context?
page number is 55. it is just above the Restricted Troops.
"Imperial Guard Unit" does refers to stuff like: Heavy Weapon Platoons, Infantry Platoons, Command Squads, Armoured Fist Squads...
It does not refer to: Storm Troopers, Conscripts, Ogryns, Ratlings, Grenadiers, Rough Riders etc.
An Imperial Guard Unit is a separate squad or vehicle, for instance, an Infantry Platoon may contain between 3-6 Imperial Guard Units, all of them classed as Imperial Guard Infantry.
A unit is one squad, it's transport is another unit, a vehicle is another unit and a sentinel squadron is yet another. Stormtroopers, Ogryn, Ratlings, Techpriests and their retinue are all Imperial Guard units, they are not Imperial Guard Infantry however.
Units make up separate squads that can move and act independently while infantry are units that can benefit from certain doctrines. Stop confusing the two people. :>
