Hi im a noob to 40k and theres 2 chaos gods that i really like the rules 4(thousand sons and emperors children)but i cant decide im either going to do a emperors children cc/shooty list or a shooty thousand sons.pls telll me what u think of both legions.
I've played every marked Chaos Legion. I have stuck with two. I kept Khorne because it was my first army, and it's beautifully painted, and I kept Tzeentch because of the gameplay.
Emperor's Children: They're a great army, particularly for people who like to change their army around. Of the two they can be the most powerful with a CC/shooty variant. But you can also go with just a shooty or just CC variant. They're a huge amount of fun, and a fully painted Slaanesh army looks awesome, with bright pinks and purples everywhere. This adaptability makes them competitive against every army.
Thousand Sons: Particularly with Ahriman's Chosen, I think Thousand Sons are one of the most interesting armies in the game. Necrons will outnumber you by at least a dozen models, but they're so obscenely powerful. Even though they are just equipped with bolters, it is scary how much firepower a Thousand Son squad can lay down. Also, Flamers are one of the best units in the game, point for point, in my opinion. I, unlike most Tzeentch players, use two full squads. You point it at anything, and it will die. They don't go fantastically against some armies, however. I cannot see a way to beat a Necron player. But they are so much fun!

Well, against Necrons, If your TS, I'd just use the Chosen of Ahriman and either Furies or Lord of Change, or both. Key over to the Necrons, and unleash hell. the Lord of Change will stay in combat smacking up anything it feels like for quite some time. And the furies will just keep charging and owning the Warriors, or whatever you send them at.
::shrug:: Thats just a theory though, I havn't tried it.
PS: I play TS can you tell? lol
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
Sorry but i don't kno what chosen of arhiman is so pls tell me
Chosen of Ahriman are an HQ that was put in a recent WD (WD 307 in Oz). They're basically Lt that cost 70 points. But, they have a psychic power called "key" which can be used exactly like the Necron Veil of Darkness on units with the Rubric symbol. You can take 1-3 as a single HQ choice, but they can be deployed separately. They aren't official, but you can get permission from your opponent.

He wan't no what veil of darkness does either i'm guessing... and i have to admit i'm a bit shady on necron rules.
Thank you Pixies for kindling the essence of rock.
And thank you Jack and Meg for being the saviours...
Basically you get to teleport the chosen and one rubric squad within 6" somewhere else in the move phase. this is very nice against my friend's Nids, as once they get with assault range you just key out of range. Again. To the other side of the board.
Or against other shooty armies you can walk/drive up there and either assault (no I:1 in CC!) or Rapid Fireand then Key out.
you can have an undivided Lord and then have different marks for different units, like a MoTzeentch heavy weapons squad is good, MoNurgle marines, and MoKhorne assault units like bikes.

If he wants to do pure thousand sons, he can't use furies. Personally, I don't like "mongrel" TS armies (no offence, that's just what i call them), as the disadvantages outweigh the benefits, and it really breaks up the continuity of an army.Originally Posted by Centum
I'd say if you're a noob to 40k, i wouldn't start with thousand sons. By all means by a squad, paint them up and leave them for later, but start off with a slightly more...stable army. With thousand sons, yes you will have a very tough army, with a lot of surprises in store for your opponents (a favourite is "TWO WOUNDS?! But they're space marines!), but your plans can go absolutely belly-up with one little mistake. One bad turn of shooting, one misplaced squad, one turn in which daemons don't appear - it can affect your entire army as every unit has to support each other.
I'm really just going to be repeating what i say in the Tzeentch tactica i wrote though, it's critically acclaimed it is. So if you really want to do a thousand sons army, have a peek at this link - http://www.librarium-online.com/arti...howarticle=103
Hope you can get all the information you need!
