The Arty is extreamly powerfull. We did some game testign at our
convention this weekend and the effect the arty can have is scary. 6 Chaos
artillery on overwatch can wipe out a mediumsized detachment quite easily
(unless they're all SM's hiding in cover :-)

11 Beastmen, 1 Coven/psyker and 6 Chimeras could worke quite nicely
though. Fast, and not without FP and a good assult, if the beastmen are
champions, but for +1 pts they all should be.....
