Default A little help with terminology please. (MEQ, TEQ, GEQ)

I keep running across posts with the acronym's MEQ, TEQ, and GEQ. I have no idea what these mean, for a deeper understanding would someone be able to tell me what these acronyms mean or point me to a post where I can find it.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

MEQ: Marine Equivalent - Space Marine Stats

GEQ: Guard Equivalent - Guardsman Stats

FEQ has been used on occasion too - Fire Warrior equivalent. Basically GEQ with a 4+ save, like carapace armour.

You may call me Circus.

I thought I would use this thread for my own gains...

Can someone give me examples of MEQ's? TEQ's? GEQ's?

Obviously Marines, Terminator, and Imperial Guardsmen count... but what are some of the MEQ's of other armies? Would that be battle sisters? Necrons?
GEQ's - would those equal Eldar Guardians, ect?

Well, Tau Broadsides are TEq's. I don't know bout other examples though.

I think Necron troop choices (warriors?) are MEq's.
