Hello all, I really love my Death Guard army it has done very well in my first 4 battles. Last week we played a combat patrol 3v3 and my Troops rocked the board. I'm wanting to make a LatD list for combat patrol. Basically I wanted to start a secondary army which would be a more shooty army, and was thinkin of Imperial Gaurd but there is a very black place in my heart for chaos. So, this is what I came up with for 400 point combat patrol.
4 Plague Marines (138pts)
5 Traitors (60pts)
5 Traitors (60pts)
Total Points 398
What do you guys think about this list? Be harsh I'm new and want to learn.

I have had nothing but bad luck with sentinals in combat patrols. . . Chimera's though that's another story. . . but I digress.
I like it all but the sentinals. . .
here's the rub: I don't recall seeing a lift on the minimum squad size rule for combat patrolls & LatD. Now there is only one compulsery Troop slot, but if it's traitors there still needs to be 15. (unless there is a ruling somewhere that I don't know about.)
so I reccomend dropping the sentinals. . . then add one of the above:
10 more traitors & a few more plague marines. . . (ac for the one traitor squad would not be a bad idea) (don't really like that option.)
a few nurglings(gibbering hordes). . . & more marines or another traitor squad
a modest sized mutant squad.
that's the way I see it. . . LatD can be tricky to make a decent combat patroll.
Personally I use a fast attack traitor squad in a chimera with foot slogging mutants hiding behind it. Often armies don't have the tools to take out AV 12 in 400 pts & they can get across the field pretty easily. If they do have the tools they bail out & do their best once the chimra is downed. Not claiming it's super good, but that's what I use & I win as much as I loose, but I can't claim any better record at that small of points.
Votewar MKV 2nd place. . .
Back from internet limbo, and glad to be here.
I would replace the grenade launchers with either sniper rifles or heavy stubbers. They're just better.
Open up in the name of the Lawl!
