First of all to answer your question a lrod is always 4 toughness for instant kill. And i wasn't shure whether or not you had a squad of 7 berzerkers plus an Aspiring Champion or 7 berzerkers including an Aspiring Champion. make shure u have squads of 8 alll together to get the bonuses. Another thing is i dont like the berzerker glaive because a smart opponet can keep him out of the game. I think u should make it either a dread axe of a dark blade depeding on your preference.Then give a speed upgrade. Although You are on a point limit and may not have the points.
A Statured Lord uses Toughness 5 for determiningg Instant Kill. Page 16 of the Chaos Codex, box in the upper half of the page, heading under "Toughness".Originally Posted by Ikeaboy
I think the Glaive might be okay in such a small game. There's going to be few things that will be able to stop him, and your opponent wont have any sacrificial units to tie him up with. Just deploy smart and hope.
Your lists looks like it could work. You're going to have problems taking out landspeeders and fast attack units. I recently built a 500 point army and put a lord on a bike (upgrading the bike w/ a melta or plasma gun) to handle mobile units. In my house game we only allow 50 pts of upgrades for the lord, but it is still a very effective configuration. I am currently using only one squad of berzerkers, so that I could add a predator, which also helps w/ mobile targets. My problem revolves around not having enough troops, whereas you, on the otherhand, may have problems with mobile vehicles.
Okay,I'll cave to popular pressure.

I like this build better, but you're still going to have problems w/ landspeeders. First of all, do you play agaainst any space marines with landspeeders? They will evade your entire army. If they are equipped w/ assault cannons and heavy bolters (very common configuration) then they will rip through your berzerkers. You need a way of dealing with any kind of fast attack. Necron destroyers will also evade you.
Power fist does nothing -vs- landspeeders, because they can easily stay out of harm's way. Now, this may not be an issue, if your opponents don't use landspeeders; but in my games I see them all the time.
Aside from this, it is a good build.
