Do IG have to enter a whole platoon, or can I just enter one squad from it?

Good question; a single squad is what we're looking for, namely an Infantry Squad.

I'm assuming that's Guard specifics meaning Infantry rather than say Armoured Fist or Grenadiers, and Eldar Jetbikes would be fine?

And would that mean you cannot show Transports?

So, its pretty okay to enter the minimum amount of models required to field the squad on the table? Example, the codex states minimum number of Fire Warriors that can make up one squad is 6. So, I can just enter 6 guys in this competition?

In regards to Imperial Guard, will Infantry Platoon Command Sections be acceptable? Or are we looking for every armies standard 5-10 man footsloggers?

Thanks,
Stankov

If the squad can be five models legally, then yes.

Yes, that's fine.

I think it's best not to include Command Sections, since they're much more diverse models and could just as easily be passed off as an HQ choice.

Novae, you didn't answer any of my previous questions...

And here's a new one.

For the sake of argument, let's say I have a Space Marine Assault Squad painted in non-Codex colours. Going off the SM book, and the BT book, and the DA book, these guys would be Fast Attack. But in the Blood Angels "book", they're Troops. They're in a non-Codex colour scheme (i.e. not BA but not even Flesh Tearers or Angels Sanguine or whatever) and it's totally fine to field them in a list like that... so where does this competition stand on that?
