I'd like to know what are your thoughts on Fabius. Specificly, if his enhancement is worth it or not.
Right now my thoughts are like this
He can handle himself againsts the enemy grunts, but as soon as some1 comes near with a power weapon hes pretty dead (no invunerable save). although, if it were a guard power weapon, he could possibly insta kill the guardsman before he attacks. Also, his Needler isn't bad, especially againt high toughness low save creatures (ogryn, orks and things like that).
The enhancement, i figure, would go well with a rhino rush. An icon would further enhance the warriors, but since I can only get 10 max in the rhino, I have no idea as to which one.
I'm leaning towards Nurgle for S5 T5 monsters, but then a Powerfist could still ruin my day, so maybe I should get the Tzeentch one.
Glory is the cheap option, but I don't think i would even use it. So the last one is Khorne. It's nice and cheap, and makes my guys able to murder hordes of weaklings. Hell, even against orks I could massacare whole squads. But then my guys are vunerable.
So a whole squad with a AC(power weapon), rhino(extra armour), melta/plasma gun and flamer would total
thats 295 for icon of nurgle. I planned on having 3 of these squads, with the res of the points being on AT and characters.
Some advice, if you please
Also, if someone could clarify somethign for me. On Bile's page, it says any number of CSM squads can be enhanced. When i flipped to the chaos space marine page in the codex, it gave me the profiles for bikers and chosen too. SO can these guys be enhanced as well?
Actually i find he works well if you use some of his former legionaires with him. As he can sit back with them and needle them, and kill most htings that come close. He doesnt join the squad but sits back and shoots it. Then the other squads run forward and kill everything It works well
Unfortunately, by CSM squads the Codex means the Chaos Space Marine troop choice only. No specialty troops, bikers or chosen can be enhanced.
There is no Rhino Rushing; there is only Rhino-rush-up-and-get-plasma-gunning. Indeed, the whole trick with the new Codex is trying to get our spiffy ubergrit guys into CC in the first place. If you can do that then the upgrading is probably worth while.
The upgrading is difficult for me to take because of how expensive our troops are now. By the time I field two squads of plasma gun CSMs with Rhinos I'm over 500 points. I am toying with the notion of dropping my Champions to pay for the upgrade and still save a bit--no powerfist but the stat boost go a long way towards countering that.
Oh right, you can take icons with Enhancing...Enhanced IoK is nuts!

You missed my point you lot. I meant he works well if you put him in/next to a squad of Noise Marines, and sits back and shoots with them. Then the OTHER squads run forward (normal CSM squads) or drive, as it goes in the new book.
