Imperial Guard are the main fighting force of the Imperium of Man. They are normal humans with light infantry equipment, supported by a large variety of vehicle units but offers a smaller selection of abhuman troops. They generally possess no special skills or abilities, mostly relying on high Infantry numbers to grind down their enemies while their superior vehicles outgun the opponent from behind.
