Howdy fellow officers,
Me and my friends are doing in a builder campaign (build and paint 400 points per month, 1st month play with 400pt army in patrol, 2nd month 800pt games, 3rd month 1200pt)
Enemies I'll be facing: Marines, Orks, Tau, Chaos, Nids, IG
this is my list for my patrol list
Doctrines - Rough Riders, Close Order Drill, Iron Discipline
Command Squad w/ Iron Discipline - 70
4 guardsmen w/ flamer
Junior Officer w/ bolter
Squad Alpha - 75
Squad Bravo - 75
Squad Charlie - 75
Remnant Squad Human Shield - 50
Rough Rider - 55
5 holy lance
Total: 400 pts, 48 models
Castle yourself in cover and good fire lane to take down in coming transports with Autocannon & Krak. Once they are out, use Frag blast for maximum damage. When the enemies are close to assault range, move the remnant squad upwards to block enemy. After the remnant squad loose combat and flee, command squad goes up with 4 flamers to torch the enemy. Rough riders can go on the flank kamakazi themself to destory enemy infantry midway, or help command squad counter the charge.
Please critique, all comments are welcome
You might be relying slightly too much on your opponents coming towards you though. What if they try to outshoot you?
Or use a different tactic to what you expect them to use?
It's absolutely fine and a good base but it seems slightly narrow minded. Go for it though I'd say.

If your planning on holding your ground, why rough riders?
Close order drill is great if your enemy doesnt have blast weapons, but keep in mind that they might ( i use it all the time)- Im going to guess thats what the other guard player will do, as well as tau. And tau DO out shoot you alot of time.You might be relying slightly too much on your opponents coming towards you though. What if they try to outshoot you?
Otherwise, solid plan and solid list, Good luck
