Ask and you shall receive

Required:
1 Troops choice.

Optional:
0-1 Headquarters choice
0-5 Additional troops choices
0-3 Fast Attack choices
0-3 Heavy support choices.

No multi-wound characters or 2+ saves

Let me say that Deamons excel in combat patrol.
Due to the limit save and armour you'll never face
more than 3+ save and no more than A11 armour with
light guns.
Your deamons will arrive at turn 2 or three but you
have 2W and your opponent won't have that ordnance
with S8.

Khorne

The worldeaters combat patrol army
5 Bloodletters
3 Zerk-Bikers with Chainaxes, Krak, furious charge and icon
3 Zerk-Bikers with Chainaxes, Krak, furious charge and icon


You always get into mellee turn two and with a fair bit of terrain
it works well. Now you only have 11 models! The bikes are fast and
have no blood rage plus they turbo-boost. They can "clip" units easily
when charging.

However a safer army would be
5 bloodletters
7 havocs, mocu, icon, bolters, 4 heavy bolters
5 marines, mocu, icon, bolters, plasma gun, lascannon

Worldbearers

5 man squad with a Lascannon, bolters
8 Man squad with 2 plasma guns, bolters
8 CMs, AC with Power Fist, Dam Visage, bolt pistols/CCW, 2 Flamers, frags

Now you have tropp and vehicle and MC weapons to take on opponents.
You also have 21 models which help.

Nightlords

LT., bp, bionics, Infiltrate, MOCU
7 CSM, bolters, missle launcher, plasmagun, Infiltrate, MOCU
7 CSM, bolters, heavy bolter, plasmagun, Infiltrate, MOCU

15 models here with two shooty squads infiltrating

Slaanesh

LT., MoS, Bike, Darkblade, Spiky Bits, Personal Icon
6 Noise Marines, 4 SBs,BlastM Asp w/ BP and PW Infiltrate
6 Deamonettes

This is my wife's list that really performs well in combat patrol.
Alternatively she has used one three man biker squads w/ sonics
and two squads of noise marines.

Thousand Sons

These guys are tough to field in combat patrol but ...

2 squads of 5 TS w/ AC with PF and doombolt, Icon
5 screamers

Now I don't like screamers but they're fast and
hit hard when charging and in combat patrol they work.

Deathguard

7 Plague marines, 2 plasma guns, Asp w/ PF, nurgle's rot, Infiltrate
7 Plague marines, 2 plasma guns, Asp w/ MC PF, nurgle's rot, visage, Infiltrate

DG are rock hard in combat patrol.

LatD

Asp, MoTZ, Twisting Path,Warp focus BP, Power fist
2 x 7 Traitor Missle launcher Agitator w/Combo-bolter
15 Mutants with MoN . Boss with pf joijned by Asp
1 Sentinal with autocannon


Now I'm too tired to do Black Legion and Alpha Legion ... maybe Ged can fill those in ...

They ain't worth it in Combat Patrol, why? The most heavily armed vehicles you are likely to face are either Dreadnoughts or Transports. I would personally stick with the 6 Havocs, give them 4 Autocannons, and drop the Tank Hunters skill. These guys alone should be able to mash up a Dreadnought or Transport with ease.

I would personally say Infiltrating Death Guard would work best in Combat Patrol Tournament environments. They're tough, they can get up close, and they can pack a punch.

Thanks.

Why Infiltrate... Why!? :P

Allow me to explain:

Alternatively they may be set up anywhere on the table that is more than 18" from an enemy unit, even if they can be seen
That's why. ^-^

Asp = Aspiring Champion. And w/ PF = With a Power Fist.

In Combat Patrol games, your leader is the model with the highest leadership, or when multiple models have the same leadership, the model of you choice. In your case the model with the highest Leadership is you Aspiring Champion, meaning he is now your "HQ" choice. So since he has the MoN, the unit stays as a troops choice.

There is also the fact that CP's are not armies per se, but scouting parties. The leader is with the main force while this small contingent scouts the surrounding area.

Thats just my take on it....anyone with anything better to add?
