No it says 2-5 Infantry SQUADS... Not platoons...
An Infantry Platoon is made up of 2-5 Infantry squads (of 10 men each) and a single Command squad consisting of an officer and 5 Guardsmen.
A platoon takes up a single troops choice in your army. The 60 points is the cost of a single squad and then you have to pay extra for any heavy weapons, special weapons or equipment you give them...
Hope this helps...
Yeah at first glance the guard force organization is kind or confusing, but all you really have to rember is:
Troop choice= 1 command squad and 2-5 infantry squads
Each infantry squad costs 60 points to start with
The rest is pretty easy to figure out. In this way though the guard have the possiblity to have more guys than any other army, even nids:tongue:
