Whats more effective in a khorne army?
A squad of six, 2 with reaper autos, lead by a lietentanant with dark blade?
A squad of bikes with khornite chainaxes, again, lead by a lietentanant with dark blade?
It depends on who your facing and the rest of your army.
For Khorne, I'd say go with the Bikers. They can be a nice speedy unit that can run up and unleash daemons, and you probally already have a solid core of Berserkers that will walk up into CC, so you don't need the Terminators as much because they are basically the same purpose although they do add some firepower.
You could try proxying them if your opponent doesn't mind too much to see which one best fits you.
Yes, I agree. Khorne needs the speed, so go for the bikers.

I'll have to go the other way and suggest you go for the terminators. Khorne needs the fire power from the autocannons. Plus they will be shot at a lot and will soak up a lot of fire power your opponent would otherwise be throwing at your berserker squads. A suggestion though, drop the lieutenant with the dark blade and take a chain fist or two and a bunch of power weapons for the squad.
For speed, I'd go with Flesh Hounds, who are an excellent unit that gets ignored often in favor of blood letters...
Well, your deepstriking termies can also summon the letters. Perhaps in an even better spot than the bikes could. The bikes are limited to the forces in front of them, your termies can come down behind the lines of the enemy and drop out the letters. Plus, gotta love those reaper autocannons!

What i didn't realise is how fast bezerkers can move i mean an ability to move up to 12" (as long as the dice are kind) and then charge cannot be sniffed at .

I would go with the bikes: Khorne has 3 weaknesses in my book:
1) they have very little shooting ability
2) they tend to foot slog across the board.
3) blood rage can prevent you from hitting the target you need to in favor of the closest.
Terminators adress one of the problems: shooting ability, but not the other 2. They can shoot, but either foot slog across the board with their allies, or deap strike about the same time as their allies get into close combat. Furthermore they also suffer blood rage just like the rest of Khorne.
Bikes adress all of these to some degree, they have better shooting range, by rushing ahead, they can get into combats that tie up firing lines, making it safer for the rest of their brothers, and most importatly they do not suffer from blood rage. This means that you have a unit that can always hit what they need to hit, and has the mobility to actually hit it. This is golden in a Khorne army.
This of course is just my opinion take it for what it is.

Back from internet limbo, and glad to be here.
bikes, definatley bikes. Termies are cool but Big daddy Khorne dosn't smile on big guns.
Termies tend to rage and not be able to charge+ very pricey
bikes very quick and controllable + they don't rage
