What is your current theme?
Do you want something to compliment it or something original?
They could be the: vanguard, rearguard or outriders for you main army
Alternatively they could be a patrol/a lost company/veterans/suicide squad/special forces/elite unit/crack troops etc

i like that suicide squad idea Corax

but yeah for a theamed idea its best to go with what your army already features (like if its a mech army take 2 chimeras and pack em with troops (maybe even a squad of stormies if youve got pts to spare))

my catachan 40 in 40 army is (when i finish making it)

HQ
Leutanent with power weapon and bolt pistol (comm-link as well)- i take the letanent for the LD not much else allthough he does come in handy for combat

TROOPS
2x 6 man infantry squads with 1 flamer each squad and a comm link each. the sergeant has a bolt pistol and CC weapon-this is my way of effectivly fill your 2 troop requirements for the 40 in 40 rules. the flamers are for added affect

ELEITS
1x 4 man assault squad with 2 shotties and 2 flamers- for a bit of close encouter fun and bite, great for beting up a squad of nid gaunts or gene stealers

FAST ATTACK
2x catachan pattern sentinals- for a cheap and effective close quarter killing tool and armour support

HEAVY SUPPORT
1x missile launcher squad- for handeling the enemy transports or 'harder-to-kill' units

total approx pts 390 (the extra 10 points is too upgrade my sentinals if need be)

i would kep with the two squads for extra support... here is my take...very shooty and completely mechinised for youto keep with your theme.

hq- jr officer w/ power weapon & bolt pistol +staff-75 pts
heavy bolter team, medic, and grenade launcher
mounted- chimera w/multi-lazer& heavy bolter-85pts

troops- armoured fist squad-
autocannon team and melta gun (or plasma gun)-85 pts
chimera, same as above. 85 pts

fast attack- sentinel squadron
mars pattern & extra armour(x3)-150 pts
total- 480(extra 20 pts to vehicle upgrades)

Patrol (aka 40k in 40 mins) is 400pts. 40k in a Flash is 500pts, though 500pts works in 40k in 40mins aswell
