    400 Grenadier Combat Patrol - what to add?

    This list grew out of some units I found "left over" as it were. I'm not sure it would brilliantly efficient game-wise but could be fluffy.

    Troops


    Grenadier Squad

    Veteran Sergeant, Hellpistol & Powersword
    2 x troopers with Grenade Launcher
    7 x troopers with hellgun

    127pts


    Grenadier Squad

    Veteran Sergeant, Hellpistol & Powersword
    2 x troopers with Grenade Launcher
    7 x troopers with hellgun

    127pts


    Fast Attack

    1 x Sentinel with Autocannon

    50pts


    1 x Sentinel with Autocannon

    50pts


    Total 354pts

    The question is what to add for 46pts?

    Or if I bumped the CP value upto 500pts what to add for 146pts?

    I did wonder about an Independent Commissar as a Commander and maybe some weapon squads?

    If you bumped it to 500, then I would consider a chimera, as well as either more grenadiers or sentinels.

    I suggest plasma for one of the grenadier squads otherwise you may have problems agaisnt MEQ's.
    If you can, give the sergeants bolt pistols.

    Honestly, I'm not really sure what to add for 46 points.

    Add a sentinel with a multi-laser, not as good as the autocannon but still not too bloody shabby, plus giving the sentinel squad a bit more survibility.

    I plan to run the sentinels as squadrons of 1 so they can split their fire. The multilaser is an option but I suppose I'm trying to get something "fluffy" that adds variety.

    If I went up to 500pts, I wondered about a JO HQ, and a Heavy Bolter Squad. Or maybe an Inquistor Ally with Heavy Bolter retinue?

    3 Servitors with Heavy Bolter
    2 Sages

    Are you using the combat patrol rules? If you are then you could change one of the gren squads into a real stormie squad and give them infiltrate or deepstrike. If 500 points id say go for a chimera and the honorifica on one of the squad sarges to act as a fluff based leader perhaps?

    As for the 46 points another 5 man squad perhaps and take a couple of men off of each of the other squads, make it a real stormie squad and drop them in or infiltrate them or even use them as a 'command squad'?

    hope that helps
