shouldnt all the rares in the book have some kind of scaly skin??? or the razorgores? they are giant beasts that live in the world i would think they would have some kind of natural defense rather than letting S3 attacks constantly put them down imo.
Would have been nice, but no dice apparently. Beasts have always been the weaker cousins of chaos popularity wise which unfortunatley reflects in their armybook.
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
Not necessarily weaker but definitely faster cousins with access to a lot more monsters/monstrous units. Beastmen represent the horde aspect of chaos. The idea behind beastmen tactics is to hit the enemy from several directions at once so that they are not able to respond effectively.
The mistake a lot of people make early on with beastmen is they think because beastmen are chaos they can take as much punishment as chaos warriors can and thus rush straight in only to find this is not the case.
They then get disillusioned not realising that it takes practice to get beastmen tactics right.

On the Jabberslythe, Regeneration would be horrendously overpowered. I personally think the Chaos Giant, Gorgon, Jabberslythe and Cygor are okay as they are.
It all balances in comparison to the rest of the army and how they fit into the tactics of the army itself. A Jabberslythe can close in on the enemy very quickly and make an absolute mess of his lines. It has a large number of wounds and every wounding hit is dangerous to its opponents. Combined with the other rules it can be game winning if used right. The Cygor is nasty against magic heavy armies and worth taking against daemons and undead. Each monster in the list has a role to play.
im just saying a simple 5+ AS would have been nice, and sensible....
I agree with you there nothing wrong with that on a gorgon or cygor. They are gigantic minotaurs afterall.
