They stand for Marine Equivalent and Guard Equivalent, I believe. It is essentially a way of comparing effectiveness given the fairly fundamental split between 3+ T4 models and 5+/6+ T3 models.

What he said. MEQ and GEQ stand respectively for 'Marine EQuivilant' and 'Guard EQuivilant'.

MEQ can also cover 4+ saves (ex. Tau FWs, Eldar aspect warriors, IG with Carapace armour).

I don't think so... MEQ implies the thing that makes said armies so tough - Power Armour.

Nah...

GEQ is light infantry.

MEQ is heavy infantry.

Medium infantry isn't nearly as common, so you need to specify whats what.
