From BCP:

Imperium, Aeldar, or Chaos is basically a unifying key between multiple factions from several codexes. So in the imperium example it’s like IG allied with space marines or space marines with knights. For chaos it would be demons allied with chaos marines. Any army not using a “pure” single faction army would fall into the master categories.
