Default Chaos Steed for CSM Characters

Noticing that only marked characters can take a god-aligned steed, in CSM codex, i wondered: "What about unmarked guys?"
Where's our mutated steed?
So here's a proposed add-on:

Chaos Reward:
An unmarked model may take a Chaos Steed - 10 pts

A Chaos Steed grants +1A, Fear and model type becomes Cavalry

Neat and easy.
What do you think?

Personally I would never take it, but then again most steeds do not flow with my mojo.

I would still rather buy a bike. Which is probably the only reason I don't care about the lack of an undivided steed.

Sad but true. You can't beat +1 T, jink, extra movement and HoW...
All i could do is +2 A, Fear, Cavalry, D3 HoW attacks for 15 points... but at that point...

How about Wings? The unit becomes Jet Pack infantry for ~25pts.

Why not just choose the aligned steed you want and give the lord the required mark? Doesn't have to be modeled as Slaanesh/Nurgle etc., and it's a simple solution

What would be about as good an "equivalent upgrade" as you could buy, I think.

Of course, I'd still rather a bike. This design space will always be defined by the best option available in it, and really, only the Juggernaut compares favorably to a bike... (or if Outflanking is your thing, there is the rare use for a Steed of Slaanesh).

I really like it as it gives a cheaper way to create a fast moving character, harkening back to chaos lieutenants. The biggest benefits over a bike would be +1 attacks and retaining fleet when joined to a unit of chaos spawn.
