I have been collecting IG's for a couple of years, but I havent played many games. I am having a few games this week with the combat patrol rules.
I have no idea what to use at all so any input would be greatly appreciated.
I thought of having infiltrators or something with anti-tank squads with meltaguns and meltabombs but what do I know?
It will be hard to actually use meltaguns and meltabombs, and the few tanks or other worthy targets aren't that hard to kill anyways due to the restrictions.
Listwise, you could either use hardened vets, or give your squads the "light infantry"doctrine so that they can infiltrate. What models do you have / what style are you going for? I just settled upon a Combat Patrol myself this is it:
junior officer w/ pwr wep
hull heavy bolter
pintle mounted heavy stubber
sgnt + 9 guardsmen
sgnt + 9 guardsmen
veteran sergeant + 6 vets
2 plasma guns, missile launcher
What about grenaders with a squad mounted in a basic Chimera with a comand squad likewise in a Chumera? Give the squad a couple of Plasmaguns and the HQ an Autocannon or something like that.
For a (Recon Themed) Grenadier list, this is what i use:
1 Grenadier Veteran Sergeant: Bolt Pistol, Power Weapon, Targeter, Frag and Krak Grenades
7 Grenadiers: Hellguns, Targeters, Frag and Krak Grenades
2 Grenadiers: Plasma Guns, Targeters, Frag and Krak Grenades
Chimera IFV: Multi Laser, Heavy Bolter
7 Stormtroopers: Hellguns, Targeters, Frag and Krak Grenades
1 Stormtrooper: Grenade Launcher, Targeter, Frag and Krak Grenades
Sentinel: Multi Laser
Total: 400 pts
You could drop the Sentinels and take 2 maxed Grenadier squads with Chimeras each (just like the first squad in my list) if you wanted.
