Default Berzerkers or Chozen?

Hey.

I normally field Kharne with a squad of berzerkers. But I think a squad of chosen would pack more of a punch with there PW (mark of khorne, and just get some zerkers and give them PW and just say they are Chosen so its more fluffy, just like elite zerkers really). I think they would work well, Though a bit worried Kharne would kill a few of them...Thoughts?

The maine reason why berserkers tend to be a better choice, is because they are a scoring until. This alone makes then a fantastic choice as a combat unit. Chosen are really only good when you are able to take advantage of their infiltration ability. But, Chosen can have far more special close combat weapons, but may end up costing a lot more points.

Grindgobble is correct in what he says. Also, Chosen are usually best used for specific jobs like destroying tanks or synapse creatures and such. Chosen have really become much more of a commando unit than in the past. Also, I believe at sheer points per Zerks will usually win out easily. I believe 9 chosen with 4 power weapons is equal to roughly 11-12 Zerks- meaning you can get a Skull Champ with upgrades and even a few Plasma Pistols if you want.

I don't see much point in chosen, all you get in infiltrate. regualr chaos space marines have the same options and there cheaper. I really like my khrone bezerkers, i have no idea why because they cost to much (points), they can only bolt pistols and they normally die before an assault takes place!

although, i was once fighting some 'nids and an assault did happen and my bezerkers did a good job.

You get infiltrate, plus a much greater selection of special weapons, thats the point of chosen, to get those Plasmas or Meltas of Flamers into the enemy lines as quickly as possible.
