Do you think it is worth collecting a thousand son army? They seem cool, but I have only seen them get swamped and die is every battle due to bben so small. Are they worth it on the tabletop (at 24pts a, very elite, Marine)?
Never drink more than 2 Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters unless you are a thirty-ton Mega Elephant with brocal pheomonia!
I like playing with Thousand Sons, they are very different to other Chaos armies and hence require a very different approach.
They are very poor in CC because they cannot dish out any damage, but they can stand there and receive it (possibly allowing for some Power Fisted Champions to dish out some damage). They are a particularly mobile army since nothing is bound by the need to stand still to fire heavy weapons, even the psychic powers are all assault (at least I think they are, not sure). They also tend not to do particularly well against shooty armies, since they cannot retaliate with enough of their own shooting and they lack faster units like Raptors or Bikes to respond to these shooty threats.
You must keep in mind what that 24 point marine is getting you though, what you lack in numbers you make up in quality.
