Default Mechanized & Conscripts

A question an IG collecting friend wanted to know is,

when you take the mechanized doctrine, all units must take a chimera transport

but what if you have selected conscripts? a conscript platoon functions as a unit of 20-50 models, which MUST maintain unit coherency, despite the fact that they are costed points-wise in units of ten (from codex). A chimera can only carry up to 12 models so how can you mix these two doctrines and how would things work?

It states all Guard Infantry units must have Chimeras. Conscripts are not Guard Infantry.

so only your infantry, veteran, heavy weapon and command squads. i actually had a store manager in a Games-Workshop store complaining about how he can&#39;t take conscripts and mechanized in the same army.

I don&#39;t like conscripts either, but this should clear things up a bit for my mate.

Conscripts can be taken in an army with the mechanized doctrine. They just don&#39;t get access to a Chimera.

The mechanized doctrine just makes Chimeras mandatory for Guard Infantry units, it odesn&#39;t make a single mention about cutting any units out of the army list that arn&#39;t Guard Infantry
