I had 9 thousand sons marines and they didnt see any action because the highest they moved was 3-4 inches a turn. Any suggestions on what i should replace them with.
Don't. give them a rhino with smoke instead
powerfist the champ and give it BoC and a thrall.
point sink sure but they aren't moving for anything less than termies with powerfists.
So your telling me i can move 4 inches and shoot 24 with them
I have only one rhino and my berzerkers are in there but maybe i can see about another rhino Thank you

Thousand Sons are Slow and Purposeful. Just like Obliterators.
Thus they never count as moving.
Thus you can move as far as the distance on the dice and still fire up to 24" with their bolters.
This is (I think) the reason why they can't have special and heavy weapons - Obliterators are scary enough without basic troop squads being able to move and fire that lascannon.
You could also (as you seem to not be a purist anyway) get yourself another Rhino and a Sorcerer model then build eight Thralls, split the sons into two squads and give four Thralls to each of the champs and put them in the Rhinos.
This will be a very wicked mobile wall to run in front of your Berzerkers (their champ should by the way have a Talisman of Burning Blood in addition to any CC-gear.
In a force where everything else moves 6" they are going to seem outclassed. In a list like that, I'd slap em in Rhino and gear them for assault. Bolt of Change always helps.
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
I helped Potato with his list, and he does have an attached sorcerer w/ BoC, but didn't have a rhino to get them there, I guess he forgot about slow and purposeful allowing them to shoot 24" no matter what. Never really considered a rhino, especially since the bezerkers are mounted in it, but I will talk to him about aquiring another rhino to get the TS marines up quicker to rapid fire the enemy to death.
Battlesuits, putting the BS in BullS*%t.
