    Thousand sons... where to start...

    Thousand don't have a lot of unit, no fast attack except screamer. no elite except chosen and possessed but they are really not worth it. Only troops and vehicule.

    Get troop of 9 Thousand Sons, give them Bolt of Change and Thralls, Thralls wizard are your best friends ! Some troops in rhino can be good, you always need to move and Rubric marines don't move fast enough. To kill enemy vehicule use some Predator with lascannon or dread with lascannon. Horror or Flamers can be good too, the Horror versus low stats enemy(like G.I.) and the Flamer versus powerful enemy(Space Marines). Your lord can be customized for melee(use wind of chaos, disc of tzeentch and some upgrades for melee) or shooting(Bolt of Change and Thralls).

    Those are the only unit you can really use.

    ps. DONT FORGET THE THRALL WIZARDS !

    Yes, I've seen TS lists and they all seem pretty much the same with tonnes of troops but at what costs in points they're costing you, It's amazing if you'll have any points left.

    the best would be :

    9 Marines
    Free AC : Power Fist, Bolt of Change, thralls 4x

    9 Marines
    Free AC : Power Fist, Bolt of Change, thralls 4x

    9 screamer of Tzeentch

    Chaos lord
    Disc of Tzeentch
    D. Mutation
    D. Strength
    Wind of Chaos


    This would cost around 900points.

    Use your lord to go near the enemy and on turn 2 summon you screamer, screamer will have sacred number so you will have 66% to summon them and rape the enemy line on turn 2.

    If you wanna get to 1250points the best would be to add a predator(full lascannon and armor) and a squad of 9 horror.

    if you wanna get to 1500 remove the horror squad and add another rubric marines squad and a lascannon dreadnought.

    you would get a good 1500 point army, 3 squad to shoot with 2 vehicule to destroy tanks.
    a lord to get in melee and summon your screamer. this can ravage a lot of thing.


    o and, btw, here a little guide how to use BoC, in all your sqaud give it to your AC, don't waste it on enemy vehicule, this bolt as one reson to be here, to kill more unit ! thats why you need vehicule. If you shoot a BoC on a vehicule you just lost 8 bolter shot.


    ps. the army list i just writed is not the one i used, so you cant say you not gonna do this because you dont want to copy.

    Yeah, what your saying doesn't seem to have many models, and I wouldn't gow with screamers. Basic Horrors save points and I don't know about daemons all together, I think more troops is better than models with D.Fire.

    The horror don't cost a lot of points that's why they can be good, i tried them once versus low stats enemy and low save enemy, they can be really good, but if you wanna be sure to destroy your enemy with shooting attack, use the flamers :p 9flamers = 27 heavy bolter shoot on turn 2 and 3 if they don't get killed, thats nearly impossible but we never know.

    For the screamer i really never used them but a guy at the GW store in my town who played TS for a long time said they were powerful if you want some melee.
