I've only just joined so, forgive me if this is an obvious question about rules. I just finished reading the Imperial Guard Codex, 5th edition and I've got a question. Under the entry for a single company composition it says, 'one command squad, 2-5 infantry squads, 0-5 heavy weapons squads, 0-2 special weapons squads, 0-1 conscript squad.
My question is, does this mean that I can choose all of these options, so five infantry and five heavy squads and two specialist squads, etc?
Or does it just mean that I've got to have 2 infantry squads and the others are limits for the company?
Thanks in advance for you response everyone!
Welcome to LO, Spacenik.
Short answer: Yes you are correct.
The company platoon must contain 1 command squad, and at least 2 infantry units. To be considered a legal company platoon.
You can have upto 3 more infantry, 0-5 heavy weapons squads, 0-2 special weapons squads, 0-1 conscript squad as you see fit.
Yes they can be VERY large platoons.
Thanks mate, thats exactly what I wanted to hear!
Now to get a second job to pay for all the models!
Be careful, however! I think each of thse will be worth one kill point, even if they only take up one slot in the FOC.

You can have several units, all of which count as a single troops choice.
The infantry squads, and ONLY the infantry squads, can merge into one or more blob squads.
so 5 10s
2 20s and a 10
a 30 and a 20
And you can get several Chimeras for the platoon too.
some people have create 1500 list based around 2 platoons and a HQ command squad.
