I agree that the chaos marine legion champ is a command unit. After all,
he is leading space marines, isn't he? The thing that really bugs me
is that it is nearly impossible to protect the chaos champions. Both
trolls and beastmen are much less effective without them, hence they
usually get shot first. You can try and hide them, but this seriously
restricts movement depending on the terrain.

I would do it and have done it. After all, shouldn't he be the most
powerful of the legion?
