Default Carapace- can i choose per squad?

Esteemed Imperial Cohorts, (:P)

My Vostroyans are being assembled/painted for the small GW Conflict tourney in April, and as always its at the 750pts level (its like an intro level set of games). Im taking my IG lads for a run this year, as my Tau have been overworked of late.

My only issue comes from the Carapace Doctrine- its hideously expensive (with a 750pts limit) if given to all infantry squads/command squads- the bare basic HQ squad and two troops choices (each with comm squad and two squads) totals 140pts just on Carapace armour!

My question is thus- can i choose to run without carapace on some foot-models (HQs + Mortar squad, who will be out of harms way) and equip the rest with it?? Its not too clear as to whether its some, or all models that must be given carapace.

Anyone who can help with this?

I'm sorry to say so.
But if you take the Carapace Armour Doctrine, all Infantry and Rough Rider units must take it. You cannot live units out.

if you want, you can take it for veteran upgraded guys in the command squads... it runs you extra points for the upgrade, and restricts your weapons options... but it is possible to have an armored hq without commiting your whole army to the doctrine.

Indeed, you can. But it is absolutely not worth it.
First, you need to upgrade the guardsmen to veterans only to getr access to the armoury. And then it is the cost for the armour itself.

Instead, I'd advice you to take Stormtroopers. Or perhaps the Grenadiers doctrine.
