The Guardian Squad is the basic Eldar infantry unit in Dawn of War II multiplayer. Guardians are Eldar who have had military training but do not serve as Aspect Warriors. They are essentially the Eldar military reserve force. The Ulthwé Craftworld is known for employing an especially large force of Guardians.

  • Good damage but very fragile, probably loses to any ranged unit but Scouts

  • More speed and abilities than other basic infantry, much utility
