[WH40K] Composition of IG Regiments

Not necessarily - you could use the armoured battalion HQ to build an infantry battlegroup. Say you gave your regiment three infantry battalions and one armoured, four companies to a battalion. If the armoured battalion swaps one of it's companies with one from an infantry battalion, you'd effectively end up with three infantry battlegroups, one of them slightly weaker for lacking a manoeuvre support company and being commanded by an armoured battalion HQ.

Hope that helped, I've no idea how realistic an organisation it is. If you're interested in having an armoured company, there's a similar regimental listing for an armoured regiment earlier in the book. If you'd like, I could list the contents of a standard tank company for you.

I'm fairly comfortable with the composition of armored units, at least enough so that I'm going to go with what I know. Thanks for the infantry, that's a huge help.
