    New 40k - Any good for small Combat Patrol games? (500pts)

    So as the title asks, is the new edition of 40k any good for small Combat Patrol sized games of around 500pts? If not what size would you say is best for a small game?

    Cheers all

    From what I understand of the 'collect 40k boxes these are all 500-ish points, although some look a little overpowered when you compare the content.

    I would hope, that 40k is still playable at low points. I did like the olé 400pt armies with restrictions for forces lifted- 40k in 40mins was it called?

    I do like to play 2000-3000pts, but it is nice to play something udner 1500 occasionally too, make you think more and gives you a chance to try out how specific units perform better, since that is all you have to use.

    Aye, I loved the 40k in 40mins games...in fact I preferred them to regular 40k, you felt the loss of every model and you could fit a couple of games in of an evening.

    Kill Team doesn't quite scratch that itch as no vehicles.

    My group has played small games. HQ and two troop choices with their associated transports. Makes for a quick game and we us FPs to make for quick army list building.

    Cheers,

    Thanks CB. I had thought of using the Patrol organisation chart so the only requirements are one HQ and one Troops...I think.

    any game of 40k can be fun provided you use terrain and missions to let it be fun.....open field combat with Napoleon shoot lines are what is boring.
