I am considering the following for each of my Platoons as I decal them and wanted to know if this is correct.

HQ: Get Army Command number with skull in middle

Elites: a low 000 or 100 squad number

Troops:
Platoon Command: Give the platoon Command squad the same number as the HQ squad.

Squad: Give each squad a high number like 878 and progress as follows
1st squad 878
2nd Squad 879
3 Squad 880
Etc

When I start another platoon do a different number sequence for each squad.

In the IG Codex it says each squad gets a number at enlistment and retains that number as long as they are in the service of the Army or death.

Am I on the right track or have I gone off and missed the point.

Thanks for the help.
