Just got the Space Wolves Omnibus the other day. I was really enjoying seeing the Space Wolves and their induction methods, and the day to day life on a death world...
Eventually the main character finds himself up against the Thousand Sons, admittedly a small contingent under what I presume to be an aspiring champion or chaos lieutenant sorcerer.
When he proceeds to defeat the sorcerer, apparently he's nothing but a suit of empty armor too. I was under the impression that only the basic rubric marines were nothing but dusty armor, and the sorcerers weren't.
Additionally, the thousand sons reportedly chortled and laughed mockingly at the situation the 'Puppies' were in. I was under the impression rubrics were near mindless.
So in a nutshell...
1.) Are ALL Thousand Sons "dusty armor"?
2.) How sentient are rubric marines?
1. Only the Sorcerors were spared the Rubric.
2. The shells are mindless drones, controlled by the Sorceror's will alone.
Black Library books are notoriously inaccurate in certain cases. The Space Wolf omnibus in particular is from early on in GW's existence, before everything was really set in stone.
Although, theoretically, if the Sorceror commanded his dusty legions to laugh, they'd have to laugh.

Who wrote the Space Wolves Omnibus?
Personally, I only like to read stuff written by Dan Abnett, and a few others.
William King, I think.
Focuses on Ragnar, at least so far.
I hate to disagree with poodle, but I believe the rubric marines still maintain a limited degree of identity. They can speak in a hissing whisper (according to Index Astrates anyway) but are hardly the men they used to be.
