Any one of those packs will last the entire job.  400 full power blasts means probably at least a 1000 flashes.  In all likelihood the flash will be used at an eighth to quarter power.

I know some Canon users have both the AA battery pack and the much faster Turbo/Bolt pack.  The faster packs are better for events when you need to recycle faster, but just in case they go down they resort to the AA battery pack.

In terms of all out reliability when the SHTF I would go with the AA battery pack, but the faster packs are the ones which are sealed up.
