It is normally better to unload troops on turn 1, maybe 2 if enemy has VERY
clogged firing fields.

Yes, it is: you have nice, big, shooty, +5 CAF machines, and you are bound
to advance (and get blasted), or charge for 30 cm (and get nowhere, then
get blasted).
All of this in the first turn, when they have 2+ save.
And, due to the nature of the Chaos army normally they have less VP than
enemy until turn 3, when masses of Daemons and Abhumans get into CC
