Welcome to Librarium Online!
howz this for starters..
-14 slugga boyz @ 126pts
-3 kanz with 3 rokkits @ 90pts
-3 kanz with rokkits @ 90pts
-3 kanz with rokkits @ 90 pts
so waddaya think?
Your really maximizing the kans on a patrol. you may want to consider 1 slot of kans, or 2 a max that way having more boyz. The easiest comparison i can say is imagine if a eldar player took 3 Wraithlords and 1 squad of gaurdians.... i don't think you'd like that too much. Plus i'm pretty use you need to at least upgrade to a Nob to be consider the "leader" of your combat patrol.
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
Yeah your patrol has to have a warboss unfortunately, so that's 60 points right there. Even though it's not in the rules for combat patrol, the Ork codex is out of date and every Ork army has to have one, though I could be wrong. Warboss is a (1) choice in the codex not a (0-1) choice. You'll have to lose some kans.
It's not very flexible - I would have trukk boyz in a patrol, make it mobile. But that's just me.
And Mouse is right, alot of people might not like you very much if you show up to a 400pt combat patrol with 9(!) killa kans.

Per p182 of the BGB:
HQ in combat patrol is 0-1
This overrules the normal army list reqs.
So your list is legal except for 1 small thing...
Killa Kanz cost 45 points each.
So you would have to do 3 squads of 2 Kanz each.
And if your opponent does not like it.... well tuff :tongue:
I would probly take 2 Blood Claw bikepacks with power weapons & meltaguns.
Plus a Grey Hunter pack with PWs & Meltagun.
The bikes could zip around picking the kanz off.
While the GH closed with the boyz.
The bikes should be done with the kanz in time to join the final HtH brawl to finsh the boys off.
Sounds like a fun Combat Patrol to me :shifty:

Yeah well. The only problem with that attitude is that you need an opponent to play 40k against, and many people (like me) will have learnt from experience that the sort of person who plays such an unbalanced list is interested only in victory at any cost, is probably not very fun to play against, and will be a poor and gloating winner if their crazy list succeeds in trumping your balanced list. Of course you may not be, but that's what experience suggests.Originally Posted by Strava
I wouldn't refuse to play someone with that list but I would definitely look around for someone else to play first.
If you're just one of those people who loves kans and you think it would be fun then go for it.
I'll be honest....when I looked at the list I instantly had a similiar thought.
I probably wouldn't play him unless I couldn't avoid it.
Well it's a huge cheesefest, but against anyone who didnt have AT weapons (as most CP lists dont, to a large degree) I can see it being very effective.
But expect everyone to hate you.
Woah, someone found a cheesy Ork list! I'd only use this if everyone knew what I was using, simply because most people who play combat patrol use and expect infantry and stuff basic weapons can kill.
That said, feel free to use it against Tau, as their basic troops CAN kill Kanz. Not easily, but they should have Crisis back-up too.
Well, I don't believe in cheese. And this is not the first cp list to anticipate the lack of anti-tank firepower your opponent will have. I think it's a smart strategy. Besides the fact that you underpriced the kans, it's a good list. Even with fewer kans it'll still prove a surprise and a challenge for your opponents.Originally Posted by Dracon Chax
I actually like when my opponent plays a "cheesy" (aka "smart") list. As in this case, it usually just means that they load up on a good unit/strategy that they like to play with. And I think it's good practice for me to learn how to deal with specific unit types or strategies.
Tyranids: 2500 pts
Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
Witch Hunters: 1000 pts
I must agree with Mr Lincoln here.
I don't think there is such a thing as a cheesy or unfair army list.
If the rules of the scenario and my opponents codex allow him to take certain stuff
then it is my job to come up a list and strategy from my army to deal with it.
And for CP in particular, to paraphrase the BGB:
"Combat Patrol ... games ... are meant to be fast and fun."
Fun being the important word here
CP is also a good place for new players to learn the game.
Or for more experienced players to learn how to use some new stuff they just got.
So, if Dracon just finished building his kanz and wants to try them out, in the spirit of co-opreative learning and having fun, that's fine with me.
I would also get the chance to see if 8 Blood Claw Bikers could take out 6 Kanz.
So we would both learn and, just maybe, have fun doing it
