Can someone please shed some light on this. Does anybody know if the models in the Thousand Sons Warcoven that are upgraded to Asp. Sorcerers (ie Chosen and Termie Champs) come with force Weapons?
It seems for the cost of the upgrades you could assume they do, but im still unsure.

If the CSM Codex shows that Aspiring Sorcerers have Force Weapons (which it does), then indeed that would be part of the package.

Yeah the aspiring sorceror has a force weapon and the 1k sons boxed set comes with an aspiring sorceror with a force weapon.
Hmmm Deathwing...or...Grimmnar's Wolf Guard Termies...I think I'll be depressed rather then Barbaric. Deathwing!

As all the Chosen are Aspiring Sorcerers, I think GW intended us to use the Stat Line, Wargear and Special Rules for the Aspiring Sorcerer from the Thouand Sons section on page98 of the Chaos Codex. So yes, they have Force weapons, and other useful extras too. Note that they are also all Slow and Purposeful, and do not have Frag and Krak.
The big question is, as they are Chosen, do we select upgrades from the Chosen section? In theory yes, but, as Aspiring Champions have neither Bolters nor Close Combt Weapons, the only upgrades they can use are Meltabombs and Plasma Pistols.
Do they have the Chosen's Special Power? They are the Chosen, so I think yes they do.
As for the Terminator Champion, here's my thoughts. The Aspiring Sorcerer for the 1000 Sons listing, is around 45 points more expensive that the Thousand Sons marines. For those extra points he is a Psyker, has two special powers which help his squad, and has a Force Weapon.
As the Terminator Champion already has a Power Weapon, if you take the cost of a standard Power Weapon away from 45 points, you get the same points as those listed in the Warcoven Datasheet, for the Terminator Champion.
So yes, he gets a Force Weapon, and all the Special rules, and can choose more than one Pyschic ability etc. He will also have +1 Attack when compared to the standard Terminators.
Hope this helps.
