I was looking through the chaos codex and i saw that a termi to become a champ for 10 points get an extra attack and thats it. Wouldn't it jsut be better to take MoK ?
The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be
Not unless you are taking atleast 3 champions, as IoK is 3 times the price of a champion upgrade.
Plus, if it comes to it, a champion can be sacced to bring in a greater daemon.

Fenrir: and magic.

My karmoon special always has a champ for the extra power/chain fist attack. In larger games I have a 6man squad with IoK, with two champs! =P
I like my termies ^___^
On another note: I scattered them the full 12 inches in deepstrike the other day, right over a firewarrior squad - love the risks from DS =D
Be nice to your enemies, it will make them madder!
Yeah I prefer just the single champ as my powerfist guy to maximize the amount of attacks he'll get without forking out the point for the icon of Khorne which I don't really need on the other guys.
My 2000 point army uses 5 champs with MoK in a land raider
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
I thinks its best to take it for the extra attack for Power Fist armed Termies.
Currently play: 4000+ of Black Legion
I agree with most of the other vets, I usually field a champ with a CF, just in case the first one doesn't take.
Lord Busey see's all.
Yeah it's 10 points for an extra attack but that attack is most likely going to be a powerfist and that can cause major damage. I can definately see the advantages of upgrading to a champion.
No chance. My plasma special needs no champion. Its there to leap in, shoot the chosen target, then if it lives the next few rounds its done more than its job. A power fist is taken just to scare away Dreads, MCs and ICs but it needs no more attacks.
Remember that everyone in the squad benefits from an Icon.
The power spoon wielding terminators would get heap big lots of attack from the IoK.
Another alternative is to buy another P.fist instead of upgrading to champ. That way you effectively get 2 more powerfist attacks for the same price, albeit at the cost of a weedy puny pathetic S4 attack.
the problem with an upgrade like this is that it's a gamble. If you can guarantee they'll reach CC, then it's worth it. If not, then it's just points for the hell of it. If you can find a better use for those 10 points, then go there first.
