(1) How on earth do the thousand sons maintain themselves? Fair enough that the other factions implant geneseed into promosing cultists/gladiators etc, but i havn't heard anything about the rubic of arihim being re-cast, and it seems that all of the thousand sons troops are those affected by it.
(2) The Eldar Webway. The heart of the Eldar Empire originated where the EOT is now. If so then there must have been thousands of webway strands within it. Why hasn't chaos breached the webway? The Eldar could seal sections off, but over such a large area?
question 1 is relatively easy to answer, The Thousand Sons are piles of dust encased in armour, and as such are damn near impossible to truely kill, most of the time they will just be defeated and need their souls reincorporated into armour, and viola he's back. :ninja:
I have no idea about question 2, but could postulate a few reasons. From what I understand, the webway is an isolated system, not linked as such to the warp, and so the EOT would have twisted it rather than broke it open, that would allow the eldar time to close off the twisted pathways. If this is the case, then a follower of Chaos would have to find an open entrance to the Webway, and then wander around in it until they found something.

1. The TS use magic to summon the souls of the automaton brothers into suits of armor that are magically spelled to react like a mini rubric of ahriman and seal the TS. Thus their numbers never really grow but they can never really be defeated either.
2. The Webway can be sealed off by placing a rune over the gate from inside the Webway. This closes the portal and makes it invisible. It is only possible to break a seal if it is done from inside the Webway. When the Fall came Chaos wasn't initially there and it took a while for cultists and daemons and traitor marines to get there. The Harlequins would have run to all the points in the EoT and sealed them before chaos could invade the Webway.
I shall destroy all who stand in my way. The Emperor shall be reborn in me, the Primarchs shall be remade in me. I shall cast down the Dark Gods, the Star Gods shall be consumed just as they consumed their brothers. Those who fell shall be redeemed, those who remained pure shall be rewarded. The Imperium shall regain its power and the Dark Age of Technology will seem like nothing. For I am the Numen and I am coming
