So I decided like some others have that I like the FW white scars transfers better than the GW ones. 
 

the thing I also noticed is the GW squad markings for the right shoulder pad is almost pink compared to the deep red FW transfers. 
 

So I considered using the cool glyphs for marking the squads out but I don’t know which is which...or if these squad markings glyphs have any actual meaning or are random. Does anyone know? I tried researching this but can’t seem to find something that deciphers the transfer markings.

Horus Heresy book 8 page 151 has some example markings and what they mean but the fluff describes WS heraldry as being a bit difficult for outsiders to discern.  They use Chogorin script and the heraldry is not uniform between brotherhoods.  The only marking that is consistent is the legion marking but even that comes in white, red, gold, or black.

Thanks for that. That is one HH book I don't own. At the end of the day I just went with the "V" for the fifth. Plus it allows a little bit of cross unit usage of sergeants I suppose.
