    Mixed Army

    Not too familiar with 40k and I'm thinking of starting it with CSM. Is it allowed or taboo to run some Plague Marines and some Khorne Berzerkers or regular CSM Troops?

    With the current codex you can mix and match cult whatever cult troops you'd like. The only real thing "holding you back" is that it's not very fluffy for you to mix the different cultists, but if you don't care about fluff, then by all means, run Plague Marines and Khorne Berzerkers.

    Is it pretty common to run CSM with the different army types? Are they like the common unit?

    I run nurgles and zerkers every time I play. It's awesome.

    CSM squads are the basic, generic unit, similar to a Tactical Squad in Codex: Space Marines. Berzerkers, Plague Marines, etc. are more specialized squads. You can still justify fielding everything together, as it's not too terribly unfluffy at all, contrary to popular belief: the Black Legion has been around for as long as I can remember, and they do it all the time. If you field an Undivided army fluffwise, you're good even on that front. Otherwise you have no rules restrictions!

    As LN has said, in the fluff the Black legion comprised of cult troops of all flavours so its perfectly fine to mix and match- in fact in the current codex its pretty much the most game effective way to go.

    Personally my CSM are slaanesh only, but then again i love Noise Marines and im a kinky devil.

    On the fluff front I know that Khorne hates sorcery (tzeentch) and is disgusted at slaanesh. But what does the big guy have against papa nurgle?

    Nothing, sense would dictate that Nurgle would follow in Khornes wake.

    but not just the black legion has mix troops. there are sorcerers turning normal troops into plague marines or example.
    even legions like Iron Warriors have all cult troops.

    so, feel free to take whatever you like...
    The best thing about chaos, is your opponent's face when he looks at your disgusting Plague marines
