AND FINALLY THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE THAT REPLYS i will reply back immediately and srry for being so freakin stupid lol about this game srry im jsut starting but ya thanks everybody PLEASE HELP!!!!
I think I can help,
Well of course buy the Codex.
Then buy a Chaos Model you want to use as your Lt. or Lord.
Then buy two boxes of normal Chaos marines, and buy two blisters of Aspiring Champion sorcerer dudes of Tzeench you can sue tehm as your aspiring Champions of the squads.
And then go from there buying what you think you need such as a Predator, LoC, more troops etc.
And Rubric Termies I believe are Tzeench Termies but I can not be sure 'bout that.
It's been a minute.
you mean buy regular chaos marines??? i was thinkin about just using thousand sons marines??? or is that wat u meant
Welcome fellow sorcerer,
What you should do is to check out hardcastle's post on the same subject. He's got the shoppinglist and all the comments.This is what he ended up buying. I figure you got some additional models from the beginning like the Defiler and some Chaos Marines. The Defiler is great and if you have marines already you could just order the extra parts you'll need from GW, like heads and stuff click HERE and scroll down a bit to see the individual parts.Originally Posted by hardcastle
Get hold of some powerfists and some nice models that you would like to use for Thralls (more of those guys are in the Codex) and get started.
If you got things in the Armydeal that you don't intend to use try to swap them for what you need in the Trading Area, you could go there by clicking on it or from the main board under General Hobby.
Well, the first thing you'll want to do is invest in the Chaos Codex. Then you'll want to read it a few times. Once won't do, but you'll need to read it a few times to get the idea of the army.
Secondly, I would like you to read LO forum rules. You can find a link at the top of the page. The rule I want you to pay most attention to is rule #8 under the "General Rules" link. The use of netspeak is frowned upon here, and I'd like if you could cease using it.
Rubric Termies are a special kind of Terminators that only Tzeentch has access to. They're hardier than normal Termies as they have an extra wound each, but their options are limited.
As for what marines you want to buy, that's up to you. Tzeentch specific marines are fine, and plenty of people like how they look. If you don't, you can use the regular CSM models and just convert them to make them look a bit Tzeentchy.
The most important thing to do is get your core down. Two or three solid squads of marines with a Champion for each, and a HQ unit. From there you can look into getting a Predator or Dread, some daemons, and whatever else suits your fancy. But for now focus on the basics.
alright, so far I think i am going to get this
1 Lord of Change
2 squads of 1k sons
and 1 squad of screamers
and by the way i am not totally understanding this whole "rubric terminator" I've seen that you just replace real infantry troops with a terminator and then you have a rubric terminator
could someone please help me out with this i really love terminators i was thinking about getting them until i realized their were no tzeench ones and now i have been proven wrong lol thank god but could someone please explain in detail what a rubric terminator is?????
And could someone please give me their opinion of wat they think on what i am pondering on buying (above) thanks
Oh and is this a better post for rule 8???? i am really sorry for breaking it sorry im new thanks for not getting so upset
I have never used screamers myself, but I'm thinking about buying some now. Not that I feel I need them, but it would be so fun to have a FA choice now and again.
For Daemons I most strongly suggest you get some Flamers as they are serious shooters.
The Lord of Change is in many ways a nice model BUT he will possess one of your two Champions and the Champions are the muscle of a Thousand Sons army. It is the Champ who wields that deadly magic and give firepower to your units.
My suggestion is for you to get a cheap Lt with Bolt of Change and Thralls instead.
Oh, and how on earth could I forget to point you in the direction of LordofChange's Thousand Sons Tactica. Click HERE to read it.
About the Rubric terminators and the other questions about rules, you have to read the Codex to get those answers yourself
Finally, yes this is much better.
That looks like a good start. I'd think about staying away from the Lord of Change and just getting a Lord instead, but that's ultimately up to you.Originally Posted by 7th_sign_souljaYeah, that's about right. There are some other things that happen, but you'll have to have the Codex to figure those out. To tell you much more breaks copyright laws. Basically, they're normal Terminators that have more wounds than normal and the Slow and Purposeful rule.Originally Posted by 7th_sign_souljaMuch improved. I see only one netspeak word, which I can cope with. Thank you for improving, it makes reading your posts much easier.Originally Posted by 7th_sign_soulja
ALRIGHT! this is great thanks you guys for the help
Overall you guys really would do without the lord of change and just got with a plain chaos lord along with some power-ups????
And by Lord do you guys mean a peice specifically called Chaos Lord or could i go with something like the piece Ahriman
thanks guys for everything

Also i was wondering I am sitting here looking at a box set of screamers ( here is the link) http://www.warhammerdirect.com/produ...roducts_id/479
and i was wondering if those are warhammer 40 k compatible(becasue i found them in the warhammer:fantasy section and they say fantasy), because some have square bases some have round bases or some peices look different i can't really tell actually but i've been trying to compare them and i just thought i might ask you guys lol so yeah,
Also is it against forum rules to post a link????? i dont know if it is if it is please tell me and i will not do it again ever thanks for all the help
