All Y'all talking about chaos now! Thank to an article from Bell of Lost Souls, they previewed a list that this is based off of.

Using Faith and Fury rules, here's how this works.
Using 2CP, I make the Terminators Red Butchers (+1S, can fight twice like berzerkers), and put them and the warp talons in DS. Using another new WE stratagem twice, pre-battleround 1, I can move the raptors up to 9", and they can still move.
T1) Move Raptors and everything else up the table. So Raptors now have moved 22" T1, and can charge. Going into charge range, the two character's buffs stack, so all the raptors and characters now get +3" to charge. Standard zerkers in rhinos moving up the table.
T2) Warp Talons and Termies drop and the zerkers unload. Warp Talons deny key overwatches, and (pending jump characters still alive) still get +3" charge. Termies supply some nice bolter shots, and a whole bunch of attacks in melee. Everything pretty much tries to get into melee and zerks.
T3 through T6) EVERY DAY WE BUTCHERING!

I guess my only question for this list would be whether Haarken Worldclaimer can fit in here since he seems like he would be beautifully thematic with those 20 Raptors...?

Harken is Black Legion from what I see. He "could" work, but even if he could fit, I probably wouldn't take him due to points. His buffs only affect the raptors. The Chaos Lords also buff berzerkers and termies.

Haarken is Black Legion yes. His buffs do affect all Raptors though so it's not IMPOSSIBLE to take him, there are no restrictions that are going to make it utterly impractical here.
