    A question for Thousand Sons players

    I played against a TSons army today, and was soundly beaten. My opponent claimed to have an ability called, I think, 'The Key', that allowed his TSons to deep strike around the board instead of moving. I took his word for it, because he's been playing TSons forever, but, now that I've looked through my Chaos codex, I can't find any mention of it.
    Anyways, am I just missing something, or was I soundly bullsh*tted?

    I think your friend deserves a sound beating..

    I've never heard any of that before, and I was about to play a Tzeentch army, myself, so I read the section quite a few times..

    Man you got super <Deleted> on that one my fellow Tzeentch player you see I am starting a Thousand Son Army right after christmas and I have every Thousand Son rule memorized and there is nothing like that the only thing in Thousand Sons that can deep strike is Thousand Son Terminators the average trooper cannot DS which is why they always put them in rhinos, make sure he doesn't get off easy thats BS to get cheated out of a game like that, next time when someone claims a crazy rule like ask if they can see the rule in the codex so you won't get tricked in the future.

    Just because you use stars to replace a single letter does not make it okay to use profanity. Watch your language, or else I start deleting your entire posts.

    The key is a special ability of the chosen of Ahriman. The chosen are special characters from white dwarf, and require the opponents consent to field. So I think he wronged you.

    Grim Psyker is right he was using The Chosen of Ahriman, the only thing that your opponent did wrong, was to not ask you if he could use them. However, from the sounds of it, you probably would have said yes.

    Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P

    Ah, yeah, he mentioned the Chosen, which I had heard of, and knew about from WD. I just didn't know about this Key thing.

    Anyways, thanks! I'll remember this next time.

    By fielding the Chosen, does that allow the entire army to move around as if Deep Striking?

    From the sounds of it, that's what was happening, and though I don't claim to know their rules at all, that seems to be extremely unlikely...?

    No, its something like that 1-3 chosen of Ahriman can be taken as a hq choice (please correct if i'm wrong). They have the ability known as 'the key' which lets them and which ever squad their with to deepstrike around the board, it works exactly like the space wolves 13th CO. rune priest power 'the gate' without a psyhic test.

    If that's how the rule is, then Broadside Pilot was still cheated, as his first post said that the TS player claimed that his whole army could do it.. at least, that's how I'm reading it.

    I don't claim to know it presiecly, but I do have the WD with it in, I will edit this post later when I find it.

    *edit*

    THE KEY
    The chosen and any followers and any CSM squad or terminators with the rubfic sign within 6" may be placed anywhere using deepstrike.

    This unit require your opponent consent to use as they aren't official and only really work in special scenarios.

    Mod Edit -
    See below.
