If I am using berzerkers in a word bearers army, are the berzerkers "on loan" from the world eaters or are they still considered word bearers?
I use alot of forgeworld doors on my rhinos, and I was wondering whether I should mount the berzerkers in a word bearers rhino or a world eaters rhino.
That's all up to you.
If you want them to be hired mercenaries, or reinforcements from World Eaters, put WE doors on. They could represent one of the many small warbands formed by berzerkers, joined to your force as to take part of their battles (only to take skulls for Khorne of course).
If you think of them as permanently joined allies, or like defected World Eaters, put on WB doors. The Word Bearers chaplain could have convinced the zerks about the strengths of the Chaos pantheon, and gotten them to join their legion. They still fight as berzerkers because it's in their back bone.
Make up your own fluff, and decide according to that what kind of rhino you need.

Generally speaking, even though G.W. has very developed history for 40K, at the same time, they also encourage people to branch out and create their own fluff. So long as you like the history behind your army, and you're not trying to justify why a Nurgling should lead your forces, then you're ok to do whatever you want. Remember, 4th edition chaos allows for well nigh any combination of marks, icons, and non-marked marines. You can even join a Plague lord to a Tzeentch marine squad. All this goes to say that G.W. has open up the possibility for having very odd combinations that were not previously possible. With this change, comes new fluff possibility. Anything you want :party: (party like it's 1984!- heh, I actually remember that year)

The Black Legion pages in the new codex (it's on preview on some GW site) showed all the cult forces that are actually PART of the black legion. The only difference was that they all had Black Legion shoulder pads that showed their new alligencies. Neitherly all the cult legions have fractured and most legions now have cult marines within them that have changed sides.
Mercenaries are also availible but they'd still be using the markings of their original legion.

You can screw around however you want... They could be a WE warband, WB that just chose Khorne instead of Undivided or even from some random Renegade Chapter that joined up with WB because their more powerful and cooler than some sucky renegades... So yeah, whatever you like.

It's not a Legion in the First Founding sense, just a word to describe the unified elements of real Legions.
Thus, the Black Crusades weren't joined by Black Crusaders, but a group of warriors called a Black Legion.
The term was meant to describe a teeming multitude of disparate elements, rather than a cohesive whole.
The old BL rules let players take any Codex Unit they wanted, but with no actual Legion Special Rules.
All they got was one Special Character for which, tellingly, an expensive model - Abaddon - existed.
In effect, *all* the new Chaos lists are Black Legion variants, just as Corasirs were before.
Hmmm...now I think of it, Corsairs are being held up as the prototypical Renegade Chapter.
So, there you go. Legions are out, Renegade Smurfs are in.
There are no Word Bearers, any more - every Chaos player's been lumped into Gav's Rainbow Coalition.
So, Berzerkers need no especial dispensation to join a Renegade Chapter, as long as there's killing involved.
There you have it. Um . . . enjoy?
