Well I am slowly putting together my WorldEaters army, buying a box of mini's every other week. I have my HQ all set, and my berzerkers.
The problem I see with the berzerkers is getting them down the field in a quck fasion.
So should all my squads be mounted in Rhinos? Or do I buy some bikes to zip them down the field to tie up the shooters so they have a turn to get down the field?
I would give the Rhino smoke, and extra armour.
Any suggestions would be great,
Generally what people do to get them down the board in a timely fasion is to give them the talisman of burning blood, then take as many bezekers as possable. Sure a lot die cause they're not the fastest army in the game, but they get there fast enough, and it takes quite a bit to beat them once they're doing what they're good at.
Here are the problems with Rhinos & Bezerkers
1) you have at least a 1/3 chance of them jumping out and moving by blood rage anyway.
2) they can get the rhino to blown up, then the Bezerkers are entangled and actually get there slower.
3) you're paying extra points for a movement mode for models that already move faster than the average foot slogger.
You're better spending your points on more guys to soak the casulties that you're going to get on the way across the board.
Bikes are another matter, they have important uses, but are not really the core of a World Eaters Army.

my experience, not as great as JORMAGI but i mount my berserkers in rhinos and send them around cover to not let them die, then if they jump out on a unlucky roll who cares you got them 12 inches closer then they where before and less people die from and horrified enemy cause of berserkers reputation to slaughter squads.
As for bikes , unless you use a fast army bikes are too expensive in the army you biuld, maybe deamonds or osmthin idk dont play word beaers play night lords :wacko:
but ive played with berserkers bakc in the day lol

I love my world eaters bikes, but I will agree that they are too expensive to view them as another piece in your arsenal. The bikes, especially when taken in a large squad w/ a tooled up champ (or the daemonhost) and a bike mounted lord can decimate whole flanks on their own with little to no trouble. But at their cost, you had better plan your army around them.
As for getting the berzerkers quickly into combat, rhinos aren't the worst option in the world, but they're a bit too unpredictable for my taste. I personally just make ToBB standard equipment on my aspiring champions and take lots and lots of berzerkers. They arent the fastest army in the game, but they'll make up for it once they get into combat.

after years and years of playing world eaters i never put my zerkers in rhinos anymore, they will just jump out.
only time i bring rhinos is in games over 3k points and i give them destroyer, living vehicle, mutated hull, and daemonic possesion. then i just cc with them lol.
anyone you tank shock takes a wound on a roll of 4+, then you get d6 attacks at 3" in shooting phase at str 4 as well as your normal shooting attacks.
just last weekend i rushed my rhino into my opponents command squad. 2 casualties from the tank shock, 3 more from the shooting, a squad of zerks assaulted around the rhino in the assault phase and killed all the rest.
you shoulda seen the look on that guys face as my rhino rushed his command squad, lol.
noone ever expects that from rhinos
