    To be honest Rocket Launchers aren't all that great. Bs3 pretty much kills their eficiency and they're not exactly cheap either. You might be best off swapping these for Autocannons and G-Launchers in your Infantry squads.

    As for your HWS, it's alot of pain but they might just not be needed in that quantity. These boys are transpor/light tank killers. Most people will be feilding 1-2 Transports at most so you don't need 3 squads. Especially if you've got Autocannons/M-Launchers in your Infantry squads as well.

    I'd be tempted to just grab one HWS or take 2 more infantry squads with Autocannons to give you some more bodies. More Lasguns is never a bad thing either!!

    A cheap tank would be cool too. Griffons or Hydras are amazing in combat patrol.

    Combat Patrol/ 40k in 40 mins is all kinds of awesome, I can't recommend it to more people. Had a quick tourny just this week at my local GW infact.

    I would agree with my learned friend Borak, Hydras are infact made of winner-ness at this points level, not so sure about the griffon tbh, but 2 would be rather tasty. The Chimera hull is really the best you can do in Combat Patrol

    I ran with 2 vets squads in chims, 1 with meltas, 1 with plasmas, and a hydra, for a nice round 400pts. I found it did quite well in a field of space pups, space vamps, orks (although looters are rather nasty when you've only got AV12 max...) Nids and Tau.
