Go with Plague Marines in Rhinos. The Thousand Sons main claim to fame when it comes to holding objectives is not needing cover since they're essentially in it all the time (what with having a 4+ save and moving slowly). That being said, Plague Marines are a lot more resilient against small arms fire and are equally resilient against bigger guns if placed in cover (which is really quite simple to do, even if the objective is in the open). The only thing you're really losing is the ability to shoot at long range on the move.
