This is indeed the original warhammer patrol from the UK white dwarf. Back then the WD were still separate entities. A few month later, the US white dwarf came up with the warband system which they later refined. In my opinion, the warband system is better because from 200-500pts, infantry units only need to be 5 models strong, cavalry units, 2 units strong, and monsters and such, 1 model strong. You must take 2 core units, and have a choice between 2 specials, or 1 special and 1 rare. You are also only allowed 1 monster/ or warmachine. Finally your general can be a unit champion.

As such I have made a rather freaky WoC warband of 2 units of 5 warriors, 4 warhounds, 5 knights with FoC and champion as general, and 1 dragon ogre with additional hand weapon.

Fun and super cheesy at 500pts...

Equally I have played against some rather insane LM warbands with stegadons and kroxigors, sauruses and a sprinkle of skinks...
