If you look in the RUmours forum, you'll see that there is a rumour circulating that they are indeed releasing some PM models.

I'm not a Chaos player myself, so I'll let others guide you. But before that, I'll lead you in a few CHaos newbie mantras:

"Death to thr False Emperor!!!"
"BFTBG!!!"
"Grrr!!!"
"Price increases suck!!!"
"I will create a balanced army list!!!"
"Death to the beards and cheesy ones!!!"

There you go. :p

It depends on what you like best.

The Deathguard is an infantry based force. It's basic warriors have T5 so it can absorb quite some small arms fire, but it is slower than other armies (no bikes, 2 rhino mounted squads in troops, others are fast attack), and the only heavy weapons will be in the heavy support section (except Reapers). The warriors are good for shorter ranged fir fights and close combat, they have true grit and are very difficult to harm by most basic troops.

Thousand Sons is also slow and resilient as the basic troops have Daemonic Essense. They use a lot of psychic powers, which is cool and effective, but it's also the most expensive army (pointswise), so you'll be vastly outnumbered no matter who your opponent is.

Emperor's Children have no real limitations, like a vanilla army they're good at everything. They're better at close combat thanks to the warp scream, and can be decastating in medium ranged fire fights as well. It's easier to play than the two armies above.

If you can't decide on the style, pick the army with the coolest fluff or models, that's what I did.

not realy the auto-cannon is -
48" - str 7 - AP 4 - heavy 2
so it has a longer range, and depending on how the blastmaker is configured is stronger with more AP, or it fires more times
