i am deciding on what icon is the best for on overall appeal. to me for a basic marine squad there are two, the khorn icon and the icon of chaos glory.
chaos glory- helps make the marines a little more stable so they arent going to tuck their tails and run.
khorn- more attacks and that is always a +. if they get charges they are still really deadly with their attacks, but if they are the ones that do the charging then they are even more deadly.
what are your thoughts on the icons and what icons do you use in your games. just wondering how they are being played and what one has the most benifits to cost.
im currently leaning to the icon of chaos glory as its cheep and helps keep the marines in your control.
At the moment the Icon of Tzeentch is a personal favourite. Having a close combat squad with a 5+ invulnerable save is fantastic.
Especially when your up against monsterous creatures and the like.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
Personally my favorite Icon of the moment for basic Chaos Space Marines is the Slaanesh Icon. The +1 INI is just great since it enables me to strike first in most close combat fight and with the new codex I find myself launching my CSM more and more in CC because they excel at it.
It's great in a squad with a Champion armed with a power weapon, he have the same INI has a Lord or a Sorceror and 4 attacks on the charge that allows no save is just great. Everything he kill can't retaliate, it's huge advantage in CC.
Also it is one of the cheapest Icon and it gives me a reason to take a Slaanesh Sorcerer to accompany them without feeling bad about fluff.
My second favorite is the Khorne Icon, it is true that this extra attack is quite nice to have.
