Giving up worrying.
The issue I had was that I had constructed based on the idea of Battalion sized blocks building Brigades and thus Divisions. The problem with this is that 40K IG Regiments are already Brigade sized. I point you to the Taros Campaign for perhaps the best illustration of this idea. Specialised units, airbourne, or those armour heavy, are smaller, but still bigger than the Regiments I am familiar with. The closest fit being the DKK 19th Armd Regt in IA1.
So my carefully imagined army needs re working. Essentially, the formations I have down as Brigades, taking into account the size of the Regiments (ie already Bde size) could be large Divisions. So that bit is easy enough.
For me, figuring out how this army fits together, where all its component bits come from, what the reporting chain is, how it is supplied, what its Mission is, where the commanders see their scope of operations ending and so forth is actually the fun and important bit. As I've previously discussed, the SM are for giving someone a bloody nose, when the High Lords want to win a war, they send a Guard Army.
