The New Combat Patrol Boxsets


These are coming this weekend and are a great way to start playing and to create a larger army. We will see what the price points are over the next couple days to see what kind of value there is in these.

This Saturday sees the first-ever Combat Patrol boxes go on pre-order for Warhammer 40,000. Today, we’re taking a closer look at these exciting new ways to start an army.

For a long time, the Start Collecting! boxes have been a great way to begin a Warhammer 40,000 army or to add to an existing one. Now, as new codexes and codex supplements come out, they will start to be replaced with Combat Patrol boxes instead.

The Combat Patrol kits are an entire army in a box. As the name implies, each one contains a complete Combat Patrol-sized force of 25 Power or 500 points. That makes them perfect for getting started with the smaller-sized games of Warhammer 40,000, which are full of fast-paced action and a great way to learn the rules for your new army.

Combat Patrol sets are also ideal as a base for building a larger army. So, once you’ve played a few games at Combat Patrol level, you can easily expand to an Incursion-sized force and beyond. If you like to play a rapid mobility game, add some extra Fast Attack options to your force. Prefer to unleash devastating firepower? You can pick up Heavy Support units and blast your enemies into oblivion! Here’s a couple of ideas of how to upgrade the Deathwatch and Space Wolves Combat Patrols into deadly Incursion-sized armies.

With everything you need in one kit, a Combat Patrol box is a great way to start an army! The Deathwatch and Space Wolves Combat Patrol boxes are available to pre-order from Saturday, along with codex supplements for those armies.

  1. A nice idea, I do like it, but I'm wary of the cost. I can see this costing £70+, though I was looking at the rough cost of the Deathwatch squads, and to buy it all separately, you're looking at £120+ at regular prices, and I'm not even sure about the value of the Deathwatch sprues, as the Deathwatch boxes seem more expensive as they have the upgrade sprues.

    Still, a good idea in principle I think.

  2. So around £85, worse than I thought.
