I still play it.

Here's my list.

5 Marines: Plasmagun (90)
10 Marines: Meltagun, flamer, champion with powerfist, in rhino (240)
Predator (70)
15 INFANTRY, 2 TANKS
400 POINTS

Its more fluffy [for a patrol] than anything else, and I think the meltagun might be illegal?

pretty sure the predator is illigal, too much armor on it for a 40k in 40min.

Correct. The armor value of all sides of the tank has to be less than 33.

The rules are the following:

Patrols are no more than 400pts.

You must take one Troop choice.

You may take a maximum of One HQ choice.

You may spend remaining points from any part of the codex.

(Try to think patrols though!)

No character or beast may have more than two wounds.

(A slight amendment that one, if you have problems with this visit the FAQs page.)

No Special Characters.

No 2+ saves.

No vehicles with a total Armour Value greater than 33.

(Front Side and Rear added together.)

I personally run 14 Khorne Berzerkers with 2 rhinos and a skull champ. I usually play with my friend who takes a TON of shooty orks. Our last game was against double tau team. once i got to them it was pretty much over with the berzerkers.

But more ppl please look at the requirements and tell me what you would play. always intrested in what others will be playing in games like this.

Oh snap. You're right!

I guess my group totally forgot about the armour requirement.

Hmmm. Well that changes things, doesn't it?

Actually .. wait, those aren't the rules I was using. The rules I used said nothing about armour, but we could not have any weapons above str 7. I printed my rules out way back, when they were on an unofficial web page. Maybe that's why I didnt know about the armour req.

Anyway .. hmm .. off the top of my head I would have to go with this:

10 Marines: 2x Flamer, Icon of Chaos Glory (170)
Rhino: Havoc launcher (50)
5 Marines: Plasmagun (90)
5 Marines: Plasmagun (90)

I'll try it out next time. Thanks for the remedial session!!

I always liked Patrol, because on a large board you can fit nearly your entire gaming group. Makes for diverse games. Though, usually, the guys in the middle get killed off pretty quickly. For that reason, games of 3 never work :P

If I did 40 in 40, what would I use?

Currently I'd probably run with my Emperor's Children, something like
5 Noise Marines, Blastmaster = 140 points
10 Noise Marines, Sonic Blasters = 250 points

However back in my Undivided days it would have been this
10 CSMs, Rhino, Flamer, Power Weapon Champion = 220 points
10 CSMs, 2 Plasmaguns = 180 points

Lots of bodies and 1 dedicated assault unit and 1 dedicated fire support squad

I figured rhinos would be a MUST for those kind of things. b/c (the way i play) if its capture objective i get to it and wait. but i guess everyone has their own playstyle plus we never really do 1v1 we do 2v2+ but minigun you are the man so i always listen to your wisdom. Do you guys think a plague marines would be good for it as well? just curious as you see from above i play zerks so...

I love the thought of this list but dont like NOT having rhinos. Guess i have babied myself by using them constantly. but i have a 500 point list with some havocs in it. real sexy.
