3x 8 zerkers or 2x 12 zerkers which is better im not to botherd about the free AC
3x8 Berserkers is miles better. It's an extra powerfist for one, and more squads engaged. A squad of 8 Berserkers will kill anything, a squad of 12 overkills anything. There's no point for them. 8 gives you so much more tactical flexibility (yes, even in a Khorne army).

8 for sure. You have a better chance of summoning 8 Berzerkers than 12. I assume you already know this, but you do get a +1 to the reserves roll when you have the "magic" number for your paticular Chaos god and Khorne's number is 8.
Plus, like the guy above me said, 12 is usually overkill unless you have problems getting them into close combat alive. In that case you may just want to up their numbers a bit.
H0urg1ass: a bit quick on the trigger there, its Berzerkers, not bloodletters, no summoning
I'd go with 3 squads of 8, its Khornes sacred number which makes it fluffy, and as has been noted above, 12 is usually overkill.
Then there's the tactical advantage, its much harder to avoid or stop 3 units compared to 2, especially when the size difference is so small. There's also the victory point thing, with 3 squads, it'll require more attention and commitment of forces to score victory points compared to 2 squads.
One squad of 16 and two squads of 8 works better.
That seems best, I agree. ONLY, however, if your playing a 1500+ pts game.Originally Posted by Iron Warrior w/ Servo Arm
I dissagree. 4 squads of 8 would be better in that situation simply because the enemy would have to kill more models in order to get all those squads below 50 percent.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
While you spread out the fire, a concentrate attack could easily eliminate the smaller squads.
I think you guys have gotten off track, apparently he's only got 24 berzerkers.
I've got question though, is it worth it to buy rhinoes for berzerkers?
this is somthing i was thinking about and am still undcided
