Basically to put it simply they are either new recruts, soldiers with very little experience, and planetry militia.

Conscripts are, as their names implies, conscripted soldiers from their homeworld. They have such a poor stat line to show that they are soldiers nearing their training, but not there yet. They could also be a youth army from a heavily militarised world, as is the case with Cadia.

A long time ago Whiteshields, as they were known, were the last stage of training for an army. 'Green' soldiers is a good phrase to describe them, IMO.
