    [400] DH combat patrol

    I will be playing my first Actual Game since starting to collect DH, and it will be a combat patrol potentially versus: Tau, Tau or Lost and damned, orks. So i threw together a little list. basically i need your suggestions about the proper equipment and war gear that i will need because i only have a few models and will therfore need them all to satisfy 400 pts. So here is what i have:

    9 x IST...................................................................193pt s
    -----Flamer x2
    1 x Veteran
    -----Melta Bombs
    1 x Rhino
    -----Smoke launchers
    -----Extra Armour
    -----Pintle mounted storm bolter

    ---

    9 x IST.....................................................................140 pts
    -----Plasma Gun
    -----Grenade launcher
    1 x Veteran
    -----Storm bolter


    ---

    1 x Ordo Malus Inquisitor................................................67pts
    -----Psycannon
    -----Krak Grenades (left over points)
    -----Concecrated Scrolls
    -----Word of the emporer

    ---

    Total...................................................................... ........400pts

    Models...22



    Basic plan is that the tank hunts some tau, while the other squad stands and shoots at orks/L&D

    Thanks for your time

    I'd give them a melta rather than 2 flamers. Get 2 if you can free up a few points.

    Why have consecrated scrolls for word of the emperor? My understanding s you use it when a unit is going to charge you, and if you fail, they get to charge you. Unless you want to use it on multiple units.

    Overall, seems ok. If I was you, I'd drop the veterans and their equipment,and all the inquisitors stuff except for the psycannon and the rhino, give both units plasma's, and use the extra points for soemthing cool like an eversor assasin, he would rock in a small points game like this.

    The advice I gave below your quotes was if you wish to keep the same idea intact, but I'd reform to the advice I gave in the paragraph above.

    If you wanted to go a path with a few more damaging units...

    HQ
    Brother-Captain

    Elites
    Inquisitor
    -Bolt Pistol
    -Close Combat Weapon
    -Krak Grenades

    Eversor Temple Assassin

    Troops
    10 ISTs
    -1x Plasma Gun

    10 ISTs
    -1x Plasma Gun


    Or you could drop the Eversor for 2x Death Cult Assassins and some improved wargear for your Inquisitor.

    First, if you (and your opponents) are going to stick to the limits on model selection for Combat Patrol, here's what you CAN'T use:
    - Inquisitor Lords or Grand Masters (too many wounds)
    - GK Terminators (no 2+ saves) or Artificer Armor
    - GK Vehicles (AV too high)

    Now I don't know much about Lost and the Damned, but your Ork opponent will only have 4+ and 6+ saves, L&tD mutants are lightly armored, and Tau will only be able to afford a couple of Crisis suits (no Broadsides or Hammerheads, armor is too heavy), so you'll only have to deal with a couple 3+ saves against these opponents.

    I think 2 Grenade Launchers are perfect for ISTs on foot, since they can move and fire a repectable weapon at full range. Their AP beats Ork and Mutant body armor (with a Blast template even) and Krak beats Tau carapace armor and inflicts Instant Death on Ethereals.

    For your Rhino-mounted team, I'd take 2 meltaguns for Tau, or flamers for Orks and L&tD. Meltas beat the Crisis suits' Save as well as inflicting Instant Death and are great for taking out the inevitable Devilfish and Entangling the Fire Warriors inside. If you can't switch weapons between games, take plasma guns- several shots that can still kill just about anything in Combat Patrol.

    Once again, you're facing large numbers and mostly 4+ saves at best, so if possible, take an Inquisitor with a Psycannon and Heavy Bolter gun-servitors...if not, more Grenade Launchers are great since they're assault guns (letting your =][= charge on the same turn), ISTs are good models for them and they are still great for swarms, 4+ saves and light vehicles.
