So ... I understand that Aspiring Champions gain the Sorceror ability, however, it then says that "the rest of the unit" gets the Rubric Sign - does this mean that the Aspiring Champion is not fearless, and does not have Daemonic Essence, like the rest of his unit? What about Chosen and Possessed, or your HQ?
It just seems odd to me that a single model in the whole unit would not have this ability..
i'm sorry to say yes, it means he is not fearless and only has one wound:cry:

Well, I have an interesting loophole/different (albeit expensive) tactic for Chosen...Originally Posted by Caluin
Since they all receive the Sorceror ability, this means they all have access to the Psychic Powers & Equipment section of the armoury; reference:So, for quite a bit of points, you could have a reasonably large unit (I am thinking between six and ten) of Chosen with the Mark of Tzeentch and Doombolts - that's a lot of reasonably high strength/low AP shots, making a pretty decent support unit.Originally Posted by Chaos Codex, page 59
Of course, there are better options than this, but it's different.

The First Printing of the Chaos Codex forgot to mention that all models with the Mark of Tzeentch were fearless. They ammended this in the Second Printing and beyond. Any model with a specific diety mark is fearless - end of story.Quite right. And they make for some pretty nice On-the-Move Heavy Bolter action, too.Originally Posted by Lost Nemesis
However, Flamers are just plain cheaper, and do practically the same thing. You don't need to worry about speed for them, since they can be summoned. They're also harder to put down, with the extra wound.
This is either a good thing, or a bad thing.
But, I think a Tzeentch army would be fun, and the more I look at that wicked cool picture (the Sorceror just holding his sword's hilt, blade down, opposite the Tzeentch Book) the more I want to build some armies and play them ... hm.
Not Thousand Sons, though. I like versatility in a list (and originality), so, I probably won't keep it to just Tzeentch stuff - at the very least, Chaos Undivided or Unmarked, also so I don't have to dedicate my vehicles to to Tzeentch.
Now, I need a suitably neat theme, keeping with the mindless automaton deal with the Marines who have the Rubric Sign.. hm.
I think I'll ask about more stuff in the Chaos forum later on, as I'm now progressing away from Rules Help to just general Chaos stuff.
It's always fun to use a nice small squad of flying Possessed with wind of chaos and gift of chaos. Eat the fists with the gifts and decimate the others with the wind and then eat the survivors.
