I'm pretty new ot Chaos, and am trying to set up a 1000 pt Army list (Black Legion). what I notice with a lot of lists in the Army List section is that the CSM troops are always taken in units of *6*... other than the relation of that number with the devil , is there a practical reason for that, since you can take 5-20 CSM per squad? Wouldn't 10 or something higher work better?
6 is usually taken for a min/maxed dev squad only. 1 sgt, 4 weapons and 1 cannon fodder marine.
6 is also taken for cult of slaanesh armies since it's the "sacred" number for slaanesh and allows a free aspiring champion.
Other than that, 8-9 is an ideal number because it's large enough to sustain fairly heavy casualties and still fight but still small enough to go in a rhino.
