Isn't it 20 models? 3 dets of 6 + commander and rhino = 20. But the
marines are still just as well off. 150 points gets you 3 extra stands, and
a commander that can actually do something riding around in his very own
command rhino (stand back, boys), in addition to the huge breakpoint.
So I'm thinking "break point = special card" and "150 points + Champion = 3
stands + command unit"

That is a problem. I would love to field an army of one chaos power, but it
is extremely difficult without just making a chaos marine army (thousand
sons, emperor's children, whoever). They also made chaos bikes better than
Slaanesh riders for the exact same price (can you tell I'm honked off about
this one?).

I can't believe no one has fielded a titan. Anyway, most people allow chaos
to take battle groups as a house rule, so I don't think this is particularly
