Default Kharn's Butcherhorde

Just got a look at this formation.

Combat sucks, we know this, it's 7th edition. The weaknesses of being a combat army aren't outweighed. But if you're a diehard Khornate fighter based army, consider taking this detachment as an addition to the typical baseline.

Kharn, +4 CSM Space Marine Units with MoK, and 4 units of Zerkers. Comes in at 920 minimum.

It brings nothing new to the table, apart from MOAR death - not only do you get to double your attacks if you roll 8 (exactly, not 8 or more, higher than 7, just EXACTLY 8, Khorne's sacred number), then you get to double your attacks profile (so 8 attacks for Kharn, just saying), but each roll of 6 to attack with generates additional hits (which can also generate attacks provided you keep rolling 6's).

It's completely free, so if you're bringing Kharn and 20+ Marines and 20+ Zerkers, consider taking this formation.

The 8 thing sounds kinda cool.

Fluff + rules = neat

Problem is it just seems terrible on so many levels

I think you could make quite a good army with Kharn and berzerkers as your troops, but with two or three units of berzerkers maximum (in transports). Then almost everything else would have to be fast pressure units like bikes, maulerfiends, flesh hounds, maybe a bloodthirster etc.

If only the formation was something like Kharn and three or four units of berzerkers, with the formation allowing you to assault out of rhinos. As it is you'd pay a massive amount of points for units that are great at killing infantry but not much else

But if you're playing a game for fun and your opponent isn't abusing your weaknesses it's not a big deal.

The problem is that it takes practically ZERO effort to abuse this "formation", Unless the CSM squads are taking melta guns to potentially offset any armor or MCs then you are pretty much boned.

Side note, when did "formations" become so utterly huge for the minimum requirements?

I just... want back the formation of Huron's biker-horde of 5 squads of bikes that can assault after turbo-boosting. Alas, Apocalypse 2.0, you were too good to last...

I think it's an Advent Day formation, like Kranon's Hellguard.

Ah, for every good one there's a stupid 'bring a bajillion units' one. Grey Knight Brotherhood comes to 2095 without upgrades.
