Combat Patrol



“Always endeavor to fight the enemy on your own terms. If you outnumber the foe, use reserves to break through when the enemy’s over-stretched lines collapse. If you are outnumbered, then concentrate your forces so that the enemy can fight only your best troops. If you are powerful at close quarters then engage in dense terrain where your advantage will prove greatest. If you are superior at long range, then attack along an extended front. Remember always, however, that a commander who puts his faith in heavy weaponry alone will be easily outmaneuvered, and a commander who relies on close combat without adequate support will lose his force to disciplined fire. No one has ever won a battle who failed to take advantage of his enemy’s weakness, or take heed of his own.”

– Lord Solar Macharius


On Saturday July 6th, Gamescape North will be hosting a 500-point Combat Patrol-styled tournament for Warhammer 40,000. What is this all about, you ask? Combat Patrol is short-form Warhammer 40,000 in which players command a small force of perhaps two squads and a light vehicle. The format was originally designed to create fast and fun games to be played in the course of under an hour. Using this force organization for a tournament will allow players to have the fun of competing in a tournament setting without having to invest an entire day/weekend to do so. In 6th edition, the Combat Patrol format is a wonderful excuse to run your Allied detachment all on its very own. This is 40K made simple, fast, and highly effective!
