Default Khorne Berzerker loadout

What is the best possible loadout for 'Zerkers? Is it worth the points to give them plasma pistols and a power weapon/fist? Or is it better to just run a ten man squad with no Skull Champion?

I believe the standard kit is an 8 man squad with a skull champion with a powerfist, and a rhino, possible with a combi-melta.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

Give them a champion with a PF or a PW (most people take PFs)

8-12 bare bezerkers have always worked very well for me, no champion, no upgrades just them and their chainaxes.

Optimal build is 9 with PF champ in rhino with a extra combi bolter for added resilience, why nine you ask? because Kharn better damn well be accompanying them. Although nine is still a good unit size without him.

I would think most people tend to run them as:

7-10 Khorne Berzerkers
Skull Champ with either: PW/Meltabombs or PF

Riding in either:
Rhino w/ Combi- or TL Bolter
Land Raider w/ Daemonic Possession

Kharn/Abaddon may also be involved

IIRC, they get 4 or 5 attacks on the charge, so I think you can afford to run them without too many upgrades.

I'm surprised no-one asked what the point limit was. 10 Bezerkers with a skull champion will be obviously more viable with a higher points limit, but for smaller battles you may need to decrease the number/upgrades.

8, if you choose any other number, Khorne shall strike ye down with his mighty rage!

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them. For original stuff. For stuff that is part of an established universe.

Thanks, everyone, for your help. My only wish is that my sacrifices to Khorne suit him.

Ive always liked the eight man skull champ power weapon in a possessed rhino. 33 attacks with 5 ignoring armour at I five S five on the charge usually works. Note with the PW option take melt a bombs otherwise you are screwd against walkers.

Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
(Unless it blows off both your legs)
