The IoK, IoN, IoS & IoT are all pointless in 5th ed for 3 reasons:
1) The respective cult troops (besides TSs) are point-for-point much better.
2) A 5+ invulnerable save is a waste when cover is so easily found.
3) CSMs are not dedicated troops. There's no point trying to make them into mediocre dedicated troops. The best thing that they can bring to the battlefield is a bunch of bodies, a PF and some meltaguns/flamers for a relatively cheap cost. They're your "Jack of all trades".

The Icon of Chaos Glory ensures that your CSMs will stick around to the last man and because they're not fearless the don't need to take extra ASs when they lose combat. It's also cheap! This makes it far superior to the other four choices.
