Id drop the Auto-cannon. Consider more special weapons and outflank them in a Rhino.

Make them Berzerkers instead. They are far better for their points.

A khorne army with no Berzerkers? and no Landraider either.

It would make an alright undivided army but other then painting it red and giving only 3 out of 6 units IOK hardly makes it a Khorne army, it's very shooty with no CC troops, sorry but that's a CSM army not a Khorne army.

Hmmm... Speedy called it. I know its pre-Skalathrax, but theres no Kharn the Betrayer, The main highlight of that Battle, as the Champion of the world eaters, he slaughtered his way across Skalathrax with his Berserkers (Which your also missing).

Pre-skalathrax is STILL Post-Khorne. They still used 'Zerks, Lead By Kharn, Raiders.

The only thing Significant about force organisation pre-Ska is that they weren't in individual Warbands, but 1 entire legion. The tactica is vaguely the same.

MoK off the DP's Need 'Zerker troops or it's not fluffy, way to many chosen, which not enough effective special weapons (you'll need alot of melta)

Vindicators are nice. But defilers are fluffier. So your choice.

thats just my 2cents.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

why not use Kharn as you only HQ, some Havoks (the World Eaters Legion did have those) and spam units of 16 Berzerkers each?

i'd be terrified of that...

good hunting.

Ok round 2, obviously my two year old list doesn't make the cut in my mind nor anyone else's. I've taken some of the advice you guys have given me and rewritten the list. Oh and this list is built to be a competitive list within the constraints of being a khornate themed list. I love World Eater Fluff, but I don't love it so much I'll compromise list balance.

HQ:
Kharne

Elites:
Chosen#5
2x Melta
2x Flamer
Rhino

Chosen#5
2x Melta
2x Flamer
Rhino

Troops:
Berzerkers
Champ w/PF
Rhino

Berzerkers

Rhino

Berzerkers
Champ w/PF
Rhino

Berzerkers

Fast Attack:
Chaos Bikes#3
2x Melta

Chaos Bikes#3
2x Melta

Heavy Support:
Havocs#5
4x ML

Havocs#5
4x ML

Havocs#5
4x ML

So we have of course a strong melee presence, fire support and some sacrificial units. What I dislike is the lack of a higher AV wall to defend my rhinos. Any thoughts?

Marine: I feel we need to widen our emotional spectrum.

Marine 2: Why?

Marine: I just want to do more than pray and be angry.

I don't really favour Havocs, but they are moderately fluffy.

I prefer to infiltrate my chosen. But they work fine in Rhino's Flanking :D

You probably wont need 4 troop choices, but 4 lots of Khorne Berserkers is sweet. :D

My main problem is the amount of Infantry, Way to infantry based. Thats not a tactical Problem, i just prefer a mix.

id HIGHLY recommend giving the Zerks Power Weapons instead of Fists. if your gonna assault a dreadnought / tank id be calling you an idiot with this list since youve got enough anti tank weaponry in there.

& with units of 10 zerks your prolly gonna kill most 10 man squads of whatever on your charge. why waste your champ striking LAST!?

the bikes are prolly just a waste of points, never worked well personally, raptors are likely a better investment...or more Zerks or a LR or perhaps a LR & some MoK Termies?

BTW where is Kharn going in this list? it looks like he doesnt have a ride (with other Zerks). so he'll prolly get shot up before he even moves 18".
