Good afternoon .
An older post, on the GW blog, showed an IG force someone painted .
His squads had a red, blue, or yellow/gold stripe on their sleeve . I believe "red" was for the main attacking squads, blue was for the squads who cleaned up the remaining enemy, and yellow/gold were the command .
According to the blog, the player said he found this information from one of the uplifting primers , published by the black library . I have the damocles gulf edition, but the information is not in there .
Could someone please, confirm this fluff for me, and/or correct me if I'm wrong ?
Thanks in advance .
The only difference with the regular primer and the Damocles Gulf edition is (I think), the bit at the end which begins "Forward to Conquest!" and adds some uplifting propaganda about the subhuman Tau.
AFAIK the book (and no IG books) specify any kind of insignia. On the contrary, they make it very plain that there is no standardisation, even of the names of ranks. That's not to say there isn't a black library book or something that describes a colour scheme like you mention, but it won't be any kind of standard outside of that regiment.

Sounds similar to Napoleonic regiments where the facinc coulour (collar and cuffs) were in a different colour depending on what regiment you were in.
Hang on a minute. Gold for command, blue for rear echelons and red for suicide frontal attacks, Thats not 40k! Thats Star Trek! Jonny red shirt and his 5+ armour save in a frontal attack under cover of daylight.
