    Alright, I might be starting a Chaos army soon (40K army number 5&#33, and I really want to do Thousand Sons, but I hear they're not very good. They seem like a cool (but difficult) army, and I was wondering what you thought? I think they'd be a lot of fun. A hail of bolter fire, then using screamers/flamers to mop up anything that gets too close, maybe a greater demon and a chosen squad for some heavy hitting power...

    I dunno, has potential. What do you think?

    I think Thousand Sons are good basically because they are very tough as they have 2 wounds (brilliant for an elite choice) and they are fearless, where as even khorne berserkers may run away your thousand sons wont.

    Im not too sure if you can have an entire army of thousand warriors as the actual thousand warriors marines are all elites. I doubt that you can have an entire army where elites are your standard troops but i could very easily be wrong.

    Anyway a full thousand sons army would be very fluffy which is what i like.

    Im sure some of the chaos players out there will give you a more definitive answer then i an imperial player can.

    I think they are only elites choice if lead by someone without the Mark of Tzeentch. So I think they&#39;ll be troops choice for my army.

    Ok Macharius Ravensdark, i guess you dont play chaos. First off, you can play a pure 1K Sons army(more fluffy), or a black legion where your lord has the mark of tzeentch, then your troops could still be 1K sons marines(less fluffy, but legal).

    any chaos marine with a mark other than undivided is fearless, so berserkers wont run.

    Back to your question, 1K sons are a very playable(and fun) army. If used correctly, they are tough to beat. A standard of 2 wounds is awsome, and if your opponent wants to waste a S8+ gun on your standard trooper to make sure u cant use both wounds, more power to him. also, flamers are great. think about at least one squad, maybe even 2 depending on points size that you play at. Probably most importantly, utilize your main strength. You are VERY resilient. dont be charging into cc against an army other than tau or maybe imp gaurd for example. You are meant to shoot and absorb firepower, then outlast your foe when cc inevitably comes.

    Good luck and have fun.

    if you do a thousand sons army, then you can only have models with the mark of tzeentch and demons of tzeentch
    also, in a non legion specific army, any chaos space marine squad that has the same mark as the lord are troops, not elites
    their rules are in the book of tzeentch at the back of the chaos codex

    and remember

    Dont froget, dont rush into CC but ALWAYS have a good number of rhinos so you can bring those bolters and psyhic powers to bear asap. A defiler would be a wise investment as well. As soon as Tzeenchplayer and LordToast get here they can point out some other things.
