With the new updates on chainswords having -1 AP, same as chainaxes, Berzerkers no longer gain an advantage with axes against regular Space Marines. The strength bonus doesnt help since you're already having higher strength than MEQ toughness, so the strength bonus doesn't help on wound rolls. Since there isn't an AP advantage anymore, and the Strength advantage never was there (against regular marines) is there any point in taking axes? It seems like the extra attack is better than the strength bonus in case I have to fight a tank.
I play mostly Word Bearers, but I'm considering a World Eaters detachment for the lolz. If I want to melee fight a tank, I'll try to summon bloodletters and send it. I know summoning isn't great, but I like doing it for the fluff and SURPRISE
