Default first time with bikes

Im thinking of using a unit of bikes in my new chaos list but I have never used them before and I couldnt resist having a squad of T6 fast attacks. Here is what I was thinking.

5 bikes
icon of nurgle
2 flamers

Basically these bikes zip up and support my chosen. Is this along the right lines? Some nice tips would also be very helpful.

Are you using them to draw fire? Will you be using the flamers to soften the enemy up before charging? T6 will hold them up in combat for quite a while, but in fact they will do quite well as a screen for your lighter troops anyway. You could use them in an offensive role rather than a purely support role, especially if you put a Lord on a bike with them - I think you could even give him the Mark of Khorne or Slaanesh rather than Nurgle as they'll use majority toughness - and then he can munch in close combat while they hold up the enemy.

I have nothing against the Mark of Tzeentch, by the way, I just think Khorne or Slaanesh work better on Lords =)

Good points, but I prefer using as support for my chosen considering they will be quite a small unit and will draw some fire. Im now planning to put a sorceror on a bike with icon of Nurgle so that I can give him Nurgle rot which I think will decimate light troops.
