Default combat patrol

Are Terminators legal in a combat patrol?
For some reason the rules aren't clear to me on that.

Also, do seargents count as special characters?

What I've got now is:
5 or 6 Terminstors with 1 power weapon, 1 assault cannon/chainfist,
and 1 cyclone

5 man tactical squad with plasma pistol, missile launcher and flamer.

Sorry, I'm at work and don't have my list handy.

My Question is - is this patrol legal?
If so - is it any good?
If not - why and how can i fix it?

I'm not sure why the rules are unclear to you here...perhaps you just glossed over the army limitations for combat patrol? ???

They're on page 182 of the big book. The one that's screwing you here is the 7th one down: "No 2+ saves". Obviously, Termies have 2+ saves so that precludes their addition to any combat patrol army list. Sorry bud.

As for the sergeants, there's no problem there. Special Characters are characters like Captain Shrike, Lysander and Eldar Phoenix Lords. Also, don't confuse special characters with independant characters. Chaplains and commanders and the like aren't special characters so you can take them if you wish (provided they don't break any other rules, such as the 2 wound limitation).

This was the part where I was confused.
Thanks, I understand perfectly now.
