Hello everyone, recently me and 3 mates have delved into the 40K universe, between us we now do Edar, necrons, space marines and of course i have began Chaos. I have choosen to base my army around the Thousand sons because they look awesome and i love their fluff, and the Emporers Children.
My "friends" havent really delved into the fluff asmuch as me. The SM is going definsive based with a master of the forge, pedro kantor etc. The other 2 are tailoring the army to combat each of us individually. Between us weve come up with a qucik fluff story for some added happines . Basically a big necron tomeworld has a potent artifact that no one knows what it does. Oviously TS have gone into nab it ti earn favour with Tzeentch, whereas the Emporers children have come with the promise of batteling and enslaving eldar who in turn have come to stop the chaos and Necrons which the TS have awoken. Still kinda finding a way to incorperat the marines >.<
I know that most people rate Khorne and nurgle marines more than Noise and rubrics marines. I have a terminator sourcerer in the colours of TS and a demon prince in TS colours, from what ive read it might pay to get a sourcerer and give him MoS with lash. troops wise i have a 2 squads of TS and an Emporers children box set, termies which will be tzeentch termies and Raptos in the colours of Emporers Children.
I realise that by wanting to not take normal CSM's will ultimatly reduce the effrictivness in-game of my army. Tbh im playing to have a laugh with mates and to have a great looking force which loosely follow the fluff, ie termies from TS being the main focus of my army and raptors in EC colours seems to fit the idea that thanks to slaanesh they are fast deadly killers more suited to raptors than automaton warriros or sourcerers . My primary goal is to combat the necrons, which i believe my not be too hard thanx to the AP3 bolters . I was wondering for someone in ym situation what would be the best course of action to use against 3 squads of warriors a monolith, a lord, 3 destroyers and ofcourse the night bringer. Im willing to not use parts in my army i already have since i paint them to look cool aswell as use for games, any advice will be most welcome. I have also herd many great things about oblits and they dont really fit well with me fluff wise, i mean raptors can sorta be justified in Emporers children (though i may miss that 5+ inv save from Icon of Tzeetch) I had a cool idea for modling them using termies which use sourcery (no psycic tests ) to shoot flames that take the form of any of the obliterator weapons. Any ideas on modeling this?? Bearing in mind im struggling to put TS marines together >.< Sorry for my long post and pre thanx for any help or advice given!!!
Welcome to LO and the path of Chaos! It would be easier to provide feedback if you posted an army list.
(WH40K) Dark Eldar - (12,000pts) Sisters of Battle - (5000pts) Dark Angels -(3500pts) (WHFB) Dark Elves - (10,000pts) Beastmen - (5000pts) Empire - (3000pts) Wood Elves - (1500pts)
Ahhh ok, sorry i was up late last night and kinda got into posting things in a zombied state so forgive anything that doesnt make easy reading in the post.
I havent tallied up points yet this is going off memory since a friend has my codex atm.
Chaos Sourcerer, Termi armour, MoT, BoC, and combi melta. 180ish points
Demon Prince, MoT, Boc. ( want to give him wings but i need to order them from the local GW) 190 points thereabouts.
Optinal- Get another sourcerer, perhaps withought termi armour and give him MoS and Lash to replace either of the HQ's above.
4 Chaos termies with 1 powerfist and combi melta, 1 chainfist and reaper autocannon, other 2 are standard unupgraded. 1 champion with 2Xlightning claws, and Icon of Tzeentch -sorry i have no idea what points this comes to, i will change the post later on today when i get the codex back.
4 Raptors, 1 with melta gun, 1 champion with 2Xlightining claws and Icon of Slaanesh
2Xstandard boxed set of 8 rubric marines and asp sourcerer with Doombolt each
1X standard box set of noise marines, asp champion with power weapon
I will ammend this post soon with real points values cheers for now
As far as dealing with the necrons and the monolith, just ignore the monolith and use your high amount of power weapons and AP3 weaponry to decimate his forces and force a phase out.This is not neccessarily true, our cult marines are excellent choices to use in an army, especially since they are all fearless.I realise that by wanting to not take normal CSM's will ultimatly reduce the effrictivness in-game of my army.
I have found in my games, never underestimate the power of your chaos units. Just yesterday my Deamon Price with MoN and warptime got charged by massive squad of Dark Eldar Incubi that sent like 30 - 40 power weapon attacks against him and he didn't take a wound and ended up killing 3. Also I once charged an entire tau fire warrior squad of 12 guys with a single chaos marine and not only did he win the combat, they failed their moral check and he sweept them up and killed them all.
So again, never feel that you are out of the fight you just might be suprised what you can accomplish when you throw in a little chaos.

Thats funny aboot the one CSM wiping a unit of Tau. Happend to me too. I was the Tau though...
Thousand Suns theme army is alright. Just remeber that if you can kill Necrons you can kill anything.
Just dont feel too bad if later you want some other cult troops, Fluff-wise they would be there as "allies" or "pawns" of your regular army.
Just my 2¢
Yo peeps thanx for the responses.
Some pretty good suggestions, im liking the idea if a second sourcerer with wings or a jetpack running around with the raptors, could upset someones day .
I do not exactly kn ow what game size we will be doing for a while. Were gonna use the stuff we have finished and probably go with 2v2's since i prefer to paint things unglued together mostly, same as my SM friend so the only models we can use are finished ones so were a little behind the other 2 who are mass producing their army stuck together.
When i finally finish some sort of decent force ill have a few games against the Nec's and take it from there. I do like the looks and fluff os the TS sooo much though id probably wont get other cult troops other than noise marines but who knows what the changer of ways will send my way .
Thanx again for the adviceim sure you will hear from me again soon!!
