        Ummm... no it doesn't. It gives cards for a bunch of SM
stuff, and allows you to take SM titan special cards as minion
cards. WD 173 allows chaos players to take any SM vehicular support
cards as minion cards. Titan Legions allows chaos armies to take
IG *allies*, up to 50% of the points total. Tech Guard allies are
not allowed, officially.

        It is, because it is not Imperial Guard, it is Tech Guard.
Yes, they are different armies.

        Fine as a house rule, although there's the question of
how to include it. One minion card? Count it as 3 minion cards?
Attach it to a GD ala the CSM Legions? Stand-alone company card?
There's a bunch of different options available.
