Ok someone told me that per new rules thousand sons movement is different than in the chaos codex. They can assault a normal 6' or something? If that's not it then what is? Where does it say this?
They follow the Slow and Purposeful special rule, detailed on page 59 of Codex: Chaos Space Marines. Basically they may always count as stationary when shooting, even if they had moved. They move as if in difficult terrain, just as any other unit would, in the movement and assault phase. They don't get the extra attack for charging, and strike at initiative one. They can never use a sweeping advance move.
Unless a Faq or something changes this, I think this is how they work.
Assualting 6 feet!?!:w00t:
Well, the universal rules section in the BGB over-rides all codex variants of the same name, thus universal (top of p. 74 in bold writing). Slow and purposeful can be found on page 75 of the BGB.
As far as assualting a constant 6" for slow and purposeful models or Thousand Sons specifically, I don't know of any updates that say this.
Only thing that changes in the universal rules as opposed to the codex ruling is the clause on initiative is no longer present.
Hope this helps!

All the FAQS disregard the slow and purposeful units not being able to sweeping advance.
Oblits and thousand sons can beat people up and then kick them as they're running away.
They also enjoy it.
