So, with the beta bolter rules, what are your thoughts on Khorne CSM as a backfield objective holder? I'm thinking something like this:
9 CSM: bolters, 2x heavy bolters
1 Champion: combi-bolter
Comes to 152 points, which at first thought seems ok. At 24" you're putting out 18 bolter shots and 6 heavy bolter shots, which is enough to dissuade opportunistic enemy units. But then I realised for that cost you could bring 30 cultists - putting you halfway towards a 'disloyal 32'.
Or, for something with a bit more of a bite, for 169pts you could have:
9 Chosen: 9x chainaxes, 4x combi-bolters, 4x bolters, 1x heavy bolter
1 Champion: combi-bolter, chainaxe
That's 28 bolter shots and 3 heavy bolter shots, plus if they charge they will basically hit like heavy bolters. I actually really like this idea...
