Hey Folks

I am looking for a way to deliver a large number of Khorne Bezerkers quickly up to my opponents deployment zone. I have looked at a few options, and I wonder what everyone's thoughts are on using Spartans. Are they worth the points? Do they hold up? Does their size make assaulting harder?

Any other suggestions I may have missed would be welcome as well.

Last thing:

Why can't GW make a stripped down Land Raider. Remove the Hull mount and the sponsons. Just have a single pintle mounted Multi-melta and a 20-25 transport capacity. This couldn't need to be more than 200pts right?

Did you mean the Storm Eagle?

I went for the storm eagle - even without carrying passengers, that plane helps my chaos as it normally ruins whatever it shoots when it arrives.
It's not cheap though and if it lands to disembark a squad it tends to get shot in short order.
I found the best tactic for me was to rush a load of berzerkers across the table and use las predators/obliterators and the storm eagle to remove all the armour threats so it just became a punch up when the berzerkers actually hit. Taking demon allies and throwing a DP and a BT at the opposition gives them enough other units to worry about killing on turn 1 and two that the berzerkers aren't seen as an immediate enough threat.

I've not fought a Spartan in a while but it just doesn't fill me with fear. It's a lot of points to get 1 squad across the table. I've beat lists with them by completely ignoring them before and just removing everything else on the table.
They're better in 30k IMO.
