We're just a little limited nowadays aren't we.
We've got 1 vehicle we can use (YAY rhino)
Most of our eligible troops cost waaaay too many points for small battles
No character with 2W or less
So far I see regular CSM and havoc squads being the only viable choices. And we'll be hard pressed to get more than 2 in with any equipment to speak of!
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

So Age.. what's new?
Chaos sucked in combat patrol before.. and we suck again now.
I'd recommend a simple and balanced, but slow, force:
Lord - power weapon
8 x CSM. IoCG. Melta gun. Asp champ - melta combi weapon, p.fist.
8 x CSM. IoCG. Plasma gun. Asp champ - plasma combi weapon. P.. fist.
40K in 40min has restrictions on what you can take not just the 400 point restrictions.
Must have at least 1 Troop choice
May no have more than 1 HQ choice
No Models with more than 3 wounds
No 2+ armour saves
No vehicles with more than 33 combined armour.
So Chaos can not have any HQ's as they all have 3 or more wounds.
I just played a Patrol mission as Chaos vs Space Marines. Chaos won.
I used 5 PCSM with Champion upgrade and IoS and 15 CSM with 2 Plasma guns and AC upgrade.
The SM used a Land Speader, Librarian, Devastator squad and Tactical squad.
After turn 6 I had lost my 160pts of PCSM and only 7 CSM where he had lost his Librarian, Tac Squad and Land speeder.
In a 400pts army there is not a lot of points for equipment or special units and any that you get will be low numbers and thus succumb to attrition fairly easily.
Yeeaah.. as i was typing last night, it occured to me that Combat patrol is different to standard 40K.
heh heh. I guess that just makes me lazy.
