Sorry for the newbie question, I haven't played since 4th ed but I'm converting my army over to 8th.

Using the Index it appears that the Command Squads have been split into 2 entries, one for the Platoon Commander, and one 4 man squad for the Command Squad. Is this correct? It is making it difficult because now it is 2 different Elites choices, and so my elites vastly outnumber my Troops.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this something that is expected to be fixed when the proper codex eventually arrives?

Thanks

Yes the command squad and the platoon command are two different elite options, however you don't need to take the command squad, and you can also take a company commander (30pts) as a HQ choice.

So if you really want to, you could do something like this to get a brigade.

HQ
Company Commander
Company Commander
Lord Commisar

Elite
{INsert choices here 3-6 }

Troops
6X infantry squad

Fast
Insert choices by 3 (love hellhounds again now)

Heave
Insert choice by 3 -6
