those are my common combat patrols and i cant decide which one/s to use.

i have said i wont be using list 1 or 2 becuase they are too harsh (i aggree that assassins should not be allowed in a combat patrol) but other than that, which lists should i take. i just put them there to see if anyone liked them

i am not going to say which army Third Sphere is using, i dont want anyone to have their vote.......... biased :P


i always take the full army when i go anyway so everyone can pick 2

I actually like list no. 1 a lot, though I would prefer to see something else than the assassin.

Default Re: cant decide which list to use

Hey El Magnifico, I literally just spotted this topic.

FYI my list was:

4 x Stealth Suits
- 1 with Fusion Blaster

8 Fire Warriors

5 Gun Drones

4 Pathfinders
1 Devilfish Transport
- Targeting Array
- Decoy Launchers

400pts exactly

It was a fun game. I'll give you a chance to even the score next week, hopefully most of my Tau won't run away this time! Might have to tweek my list a bit though... or maybe I'll use my Necrons.

See you next week,

Third Sphere

I'd go with the Eldar list for its amount of mobile shurikens and the scorpians (who I absolutely ADORE) being able to tie-up/slaughter a worthy opponent for several turns.

Shurikens are still able to pierce those Necron warrior's chasis, right? If not, disregard my advice and choose something you love.
