I developed this unit to combat bunker units.

19 corsairs with full command and sea serpent standard
lokhir fellheart
assassin with manbane, rune of khaine, mark of khaine

this unit is then supported with a cauldron of blood

In all three games I have played under the new rules, this unit is constantly underestimated until it gets into combat and the look on my opponents face when realises he is facing potentially either ( 4 attacks from each standard model, normally 7+ from lockhir, 7-9 from assassin at str6 or alternatively each model has one less attack with killing blow. This unit is how to take apart a grave guard bunker with vampire lord in 1-2 rounds of combat easily.

I normally run this unit in a three thousand point army alongside 20 black guard and 20 executioners.

You would probably bounce off real bunkers though, Ironbreakers and Chosen.
2+ armour save is something corsairs can't get trough.

when up iron breakers etc i give the corsairs killing blow blessing, this seemed to work well when i charged dwarf ironbreakers, i haven't got the chance to play against chaos yet unfortunately.

actually this sounds like a nice idea - maxing out the attacks and then using the cauldron to tailor them to the opponent (i,e. either more attacks or KB)

hide them behind a unit of harpies and no one bothers with them until they get into combat as they are too busy shooting at the war hydras.
