Default 400 point combat patrol list

My first battle with my new army is tomorrow in a small 400point combat patrol game.

Troops - 300
Platoon A
Junior Officer - Lasgun
4 Guardsmen with grenade launchers
Squad A
Seargent with Lasgun
1 Heavy Bolter
1 Flamer
6 Lasguns (7 If the 1 man from the heavy bolter team can fire)
Squad B
Seargent with Lasgun
1 Heavy Bolter
1 Flamer
6 Lasguns (7 If the 1 man from the heavy bolter team can fire)
Squad C
Seargent with Lasgun
1 Heavy Bolter
1 Flamer
6 Lasguns (7 If the 1 man from the heavy bolter team can fire)
Fast Attack - 100
2 Sentinels with Autocannons

There are a couple of reasons I made this list the way I did. I think it fits the fluff of a combat patrol.. a couple squads of men and 2 sentinels. The plan is to form a static line and pour as much fire into the approaching enemy as possible before using flamers and rapid firing lasguns as a last ditch effort. The sentinel autocannons should be able to deal with any armor with the combat patrol rules.

This is a bit wrong- Flamers and Heavy Bolters? NO! Grenade Launchers at worst, Plasma Guns at best!

Platoon 1
Command Staff:
Junior Officer, Bolter- 41pts
4 Guardsmen, Lasguns- 0pts

Squad 1:
9 Guardsmen, Sergeant, Grenade Launcher, Heavy Bolter, rest have lasguns- 78pts

Squad 2:
9 Guardsmen, Sergeant, Grenade Launcher, Heavy Bolter, rest have lasguns- 78pts

This gives you 25 men, yet is very cheap in points, allowing you to get more stuff.
- 197pts

i agree. you would be wasitng a good assualt weapon if you kept it in that squad. the range for it also sucks. however, i would recomend a grenade launcher for its wide range of applications. it is one of the best weapons the guard has.

i agree, Officers can have lasguns though, i've played tons of times with a Officer with lasgun... even in tornaments, no one has said "you cant do that" so this is a first for me

Officers have acces to the armoury.
No where does it say he can have a lasgun, and the armoury does not have lasguns in there, So ultimately he cannot have one.

Yeah, just give them a 1 point bolter... it's better anyways. The other thing to do (I usually do this in my armies) is equip sergeants (or officers) with shotguns, or (fluff-wise for my army) smg's... why? because they shoot like lasguns at 12", but you can counter charge while still firing 2 shots. Ultimately, an extra attack for guard isn't going to do much at all, but the shotgun is the perfect compromise between pure fire power and an assault punch. Think about it this way: if you assault, that extra attack will only be more likely to hit against WS 2 models, and ususally they don't pose much of a threat, whereas with two shots before the assault, those 2 shots will ALWAYS his at BS 3, regardless of the enemy's WS or BS. Also, you'll still get an attack from your Sgt when you charge, so you get 3 attacks, 2 of which always hit at BS 3, as opposed to 3 attacks of which only 1 will always hit at BS3. And if you give your officers or veterans shotguns, you'll always hit at BS 4 with two shots before charging in with 2 more.

There's the reasoning behind sergeants or officers with shotguns.
