maybe its just me but when ever i take bezerkers the always seem to get out there tank to get shot at for rooling blood frenzy and get shot up or spend the game in cc with a dread that only the aspiring champ can kill and if they do get in to close combet they are zapped by a, space wolves with power weapons b, death company c,terms.
What i am trying to say is that for the best close combat squad nurgle marines or the emps children are much better, berzerkers seem to be at a lot of disadvantages for the bouns of fearlesness and 1 attack.
Nope, berzerkers are worthless. Matter of fact, the entire World Eaters legion sucks, IMHO.
thanks for the inteligent and informed opinion!
I have played many a game with my World Eaters and I think Khorne Berserkers are about the most viscious things out there. My suggestion is to drop all the rhinos and spend that on another squad of Berserkers. I take about 4 squads of Berserkers, a DP, a Dreadie and a Predator. The great thing about that is that people always shoot at everything except the Berserkers. And if they don't they have to deal with the big three nasties. Generally my Dreadnaught will die after one shot, and my Predator after 2, but that's what they're there for. They offer cover for my Berserkers who absolutely never have any cover. Just keep trying.

drop the rhino, my experience is that the fuller the squad the better. ever fight against a footslogging dark eldar army? exactly how big was that wych squad?
since Rhino rush is not a viable option, just let those guys run like crazy towards the enemy. Khorne berzerkers are nasty little buggers and always have been.
thanks for the advice i dont think my opponent is daft enought to torget a dreadnaught when there arr bezerkers running towards him! ant way, i will try dropping the rhinos and see how it gose.
Perhaps you have never been on the receiving end of a chainaxe weilding, fearless, cc monster, 4 attacks of doom khorne beserker.Originally Posted by Jaileint
Khorne beserkers are definitely worth it The dread is only AV 12, you only need a 4+ to do some damage.
jailent i dont want to see your face again so stfu man. NOOB! Ignore that! Khorne beserkers are great just get them behind covers and get closer and closer until you drop onto them. Then you could just tear the enemy apart
They are tasty in cc but dont they have that annoying habit of charging full speed toward the nearest enemy? or is that just beserker glaive?
This means a canny opponent gets to choose what fights where, simply by moving the right squads the right distances, this can lead to unfortunate accidents, like when beserkers charge wraithlords, or being lead around all day by falcons they cant hurt.
Dunno if thats the old rules but that used to be a problem i think, that said ive had them charge and reduce even a seer council to paste with a huge flurry of attacks, the key is getting them to combat, do that and your opponents in for a world of pain.

I believe "STFU" violates two forum rules for cursing and netspeak. Also, it's very rude. Of course berserkers are good troops choices. Most people, in fact, think they are pretty overpowered. I thought it was a silly question, and I gave a silly, off the hip, answer. Please except my apologies for not being blunt enough for some of the readers of the board (Heretic).Originally Posted by Burn the Herectic
