A friend of mine is starting 1000 sons, and have asked me for help composing his army. Hes all new to 40k, but he is crazy about psykers, resilience and firepower, which is why I thought that 1000 sons would be good for him in the first place. But what units really works for 1000 sons? And what basic tactics should he stick to? I really hope that you can help, as I genuinely suck at MEQ tacics.
Take a look at the Thousands Sons Tactica by LordofChange. It's in the Chaos Tactica section, stickied, in this very forum.
Also, if he's got access to the internet, tell him to look at the "From Start to Finish:Chaos Army Building" Thread.
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
I'd say that he should start with two units of sons and then the a HQ-this should be nothing fancy as the units are expensive enough (pointswise and in cash) then add a rhino or so for mobility. From there on he would have to feel what his style of play demands, it varies from player to player, though many of us prefer the basic troops.
You could take a look on the other threads onThousand sons armybuilding in the forum and you'll see what people use.
I'd say two units of thousand sons, two rhino's and a hq maybe with a retinue of chosen
Long ago there was something in me, but now that thing is gone,
I cannot cry, I cannot care, that thing will come back no more.

I'll advice against that retinue, they are a very vulnerable pointsink. But that is something I think every TS player has experienced. IÂ´ve had mine blown to pieces more times then I like to remember.
That psycher assasin, is it Celexus? Ordnance templates, even Tau-fire...
No to succesfully field the Sons one should stay far away from any expensive stuff...more expensive that is.
Tell your friend to use many Thralls, they are a cheap way of making better use of the sorcerers.
I'd suggest chosen of Ahrimahn as they are very usefull for improving mobility (even better than rhinos)
