    KhorneOrSlannesh Bikers

    I am trying to decide between the to Marks to give my bikers, because I am about paint my bikes. Any suggestions? Perhaps 2 squads, one Slannesh and one khorne. This is Black Legion BTW.

    I would say Slannesh as in combat you will normally strike first as the enemy will have initiative 1 and in shooting you can give your bikes Sonic Blasters which means you can more 12" and get 3 shots rather than 2 which can be a great advantage.

    Altough on the other hand Khorne get another attack but are rather predictable.

    Slannesh all the way in my opinion.

    Slaanesh. It's easy to figure out why.

    Six bolter shots per model coming in, as opposed to three, and -1 initiative to the enemy unit.

    The initiative itself will save more bike models that +1 attack will. Those bikes are expensive.

    Yea i also agree Slannesh are the way to go.
    You will mostly attack first and the +1 toughness for being on a bike will help greatly.

    I'd actually say khorne - according to the new FAQ, blood rage cannot enhance a movement mode(obviously being angry isn't going to make a bike drive faster) so you can control their rage - your enemy can't just throw a land raider or predator in front of them and watch the bikers sit there for the rest of the game punching something they can't hurt. Also, the extra attack that the bike gives and the extra attack for the mark of khorne, combined with khornate chainaxes, mean that they can tear a big hole in any marine or even terminator squad, and their high manouvreability and turbo boost means that they can be used to perform surgical strikes on high-point targets like aspect warriors or terminators using their specialised wargear. Combined with the fact that khorne is incredibly underpriced as they're rigidly dedicated to close combat, a squad of three bikers can get up to 14+D3 attacks with chainaxes - very nasty. Also, the problem of khornate marines charging into a unit that's much stronger than them and can beat them up is not there, as the high toughness protects them from damage. But in the end, it's your choice.
    The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

    You can indeed take bikers with the Mark of Khorne. Page 38 of the Chaos Codex.

    I think you are thinking of thousand sons or plague marines. They cannot take bikers but noise marines and berserkers can.
