    Unfortunately, it's just you.

    You can, however, have a twenty man squad with 20 sonic blasters, which is still pretty withering fire power.

    But alas, 1 blastmaster per squad. Probably a good thing too, as they're rather shockingly powerful.

    I actually prefer sonic blaster toting noise marines to 1k sons. You are only slightly worse off against MEQs, loads better off against hordes and muh cheaper overrall...

    And you're better off if you get stuck in close combat, no?

    Albeit 1k sons aren't the best in combat, they are extremely resilient.

    They will always have a force weapon. And they will never have to worry about lightning claws/power weapons/force weapons/fists. That invulnerable slows down combat so much.

    All this at the cost of 1 attack?

    They may end up losing combat, but they are going to do -some- damage, and slow down CC units a lot.

    Like every option, there is never a clear cut choice as to which unit is better. It all varies on who you're matched up against. Personally, I love both the noise marines and 1k sons in their own ways. Sonic blasters offer a lot of versatility, and come at a fairly cheap cost IMHO, and nobody can argue against the power of the blastmaster. On the other hand, 1k sons have ap3 bolters which are great against MEQs, but less effective against most other opponents.

    I will have to agree. On one hand, you have the ability to gun down hordes like nothing, b/c Slaanesh offer the some of the best against hordes, not to mention the pinning aspect of the blastmaster. On the other hand, you have the almost-as-resilient-as-plague-marines-with-better-initial-guns 1k sons that always have the capability of one-shotting a carnifex with the force weapon, if you should get attacked by one. All in all, you're comparing apples to oranges, sure, they're both fruit, but they're both required(most of the time) to make a great fruit salad.
    I always try to get at least one squad of each in my army lists, but that's just me...
