Howdy folks, looking to get into combat patrol, considering bringing my House Malinax traitors. For this format, I am considering my girl Acus Falx, the Chaff's Scythe, pictured in the foreground:

Infernal Knight Despoiler, WYSIWYG with a chainsword, avenger, and rocket pod.

Knower of Profane Secrets will help fuel her Trail of Destruction, counter-balanced by Warp Fugue (not super worried about much at 500 points harming her up close). and her warlord trait is Infernal Quest so I don't auto-lose objectives.

Helm of Warp Sight will prevent cover from being much of an issue, but I am not totally sold on Infernal House bonds... any ideas? What do y'all use?

I thought you couldn't use the Super-Heavy Auxiliary detachment in Combat Patrol? Iirc, to bring Knights into Combat Patrol you'd need to take the Armigers/War Dogs so you can use the min-3 LoW Detachment

I will refrain from ranting about the awkwardness of LoW detachments in 9th. Suffice to say, knights in combat patrol seem to be the exception-

Unless the other people are running knights as well you are going to be quite unpopular taking knights to combat patrol.

Eh, I am just playing with my two buddies and one of them is the kind of guy to drop a riptide in a tiny game.

But honestly I was wondering if taking a Knight wasn’t just going to be an auto-lose thanks to how the faction struggles to hold objectives and and secondaries can be tricky.

In Patrol level games there are only two detachements you can use: Patrol and for Knights/Chaos Knights Super Heavy Detachement (Not the aux one). So three Warhounds is the only way to play combat patrol with Knights. What you gaming group is allowing on 500 p. games is your business of course.

I see, you are right; and the more I thought about it, the more I dislike running the stompy robot. It just seems too likely to result in an unsatisfying game, one way or the other. Guess I will have to knock together a few war dogs.
