Hello fellow Heretics

I'm new to the forums and to 40k. I recently purchased an Eldar army starting from scratch so I could play with my friend. I live near HongKong so models are hard to come by. Unfortunatly I have fast discovered all the Eldar models I want are impossible to order now that finecast has started so im stuck around 1200 points 8(. So I am thinking about putting my Eldar on the back burner and Making an all out Thousand Sons army.

Any suggestions? I like the idea of troops that can fire off two rounds of AP3 ammo and assualt in the same round. Plus bolt of chaos sounds like an awsome tank busting bonus for my troops. What other kinds of troops should I throw in to round out this kind of army? Again it's theme based so I don't want beserkers or anything. I was thinking about chaos spawn, possesed marines, and obliderators.

Also i'm trying to set up vassal and would love to play a friendly match with someone so I can get better at this wonderful game.

Welcome to Heresy Online.

Are you happy to use icons or is that something you want to avoid?
Oblierators are pretty much a standard choice for CSM being one of the most effective units available.

Hope enjoy your visits to the forums.

Sure Icons work for me. I havn't started the army yet so i'm looking for good ideas. Again it doesn't have to be ultra competitive. It just needs to have a strong Thousand Sons feel and win me a game here and there.

there are plenty of ts themed lists in the army list forum, and myself or several others that are always looking to help build competetive lists for our fellow champions would be happy to give you all the pointers you would need

Someone after my own heart with Themed lists. I'm not great at the game anyway, but I also dont bother building competative lists, just interresting ones. I have a Thousand Sons army, I struggle to take all the actually Marines I have because they are so expensive, but yeah oblitorators are a good choice as Vash was saying. Once you have enough worth taking him Ahriman is an awsome force to behold... his main worries are perils from the warp! Rhinos are essential as far as I'm concerned, your ability to mow down marines and be able to assault the same turn comes with a price, walking everywhere like your in difficult terrain gets old, REAL fast.

I also have a havoc launcher/lascannon theme running through my vehicles, pretty much everthing that isnt a bolter is one of those things. It does rack up the points super fast though.

Fun things to take are individual sorcerers, you can customise them, give them different abilities, or take a lord and give him a daemon weapon : )

Looking forward to seeing your army, let me know what your first purchase is!

I am also a contributor to this blog where I upload a lot of my other projects under the name Pandorasbitzbox
