Yeah, I bring you the goods :D

Hey, let's all give a huge amount of props to Destris on Warseer for providing the following info on the Thousand Sons Cult troops to me.

Unit Type: Infantry

Special Rules

Fearless, Slow and Purposeful (not Sorcerer), 4+ Invulnerable save (including the Mark of Tzeentch).

The Sorcerer Commands: The Aspiring Champion who leads the squad is a psyker. If the Aspiring Sorcerer is killed, the Thousand Sons marines roll a single dice for their Slow and Purposeful movement, unless the squad contains an Independent Character with the Mark of Tzeentch from the beginning of the turn.

Inferno Bolts: The shells fired by the bolters of the Thousand Sons Marines and the Aspiring Sorcerer's pistol are charged with baleful sorcerous energies, against which most mundane armour is no defence. The AP value of their bolt weapons is 3 instead of the normal 5.

Army List Entry: Thousand Sons

Unit Type: Infantry

Number/Squad
1 Aspiring Sorcerer and 4-19 Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marines

Wargear

All:
Power Armour

Aspiring Sorcerer:
Bolt Pistol
Force Weapon

Thousand Sons:
Bolter

Special Rules:
+4 Invulnerable save (including Mark of Tzeentch)
Fearless
Slow and Purposeful
The Sorcerer Commands
Inferno Bolts

Character:
The Aspiring Sorcerer is a psyker and must be given one of the following pyschic powers:
- Doombolt
- Wind of Chaos
- Gift of Chaos
- Warptime
- Bolt of Change

He may have meltabombs .

Icon:
One model may be given a personal icon.

Transport:
The squad may have a Chaos Rhino dedicated transport



I didn't post the point values or the stats due to legal reasons but one question I just KNOW will come up is whether or not the Sons still have 2 wounds and I can assure you: they do not.

I'm gonna laugh the first time someone takes a big unit of these fellas and gets charged by a dread.....

At the moment chaos marines are 5-20 so its nothing new.

The ap3 looks fruity at the moment but the points cost will be very high so i can't see there being many ap3 bolters running around.

With stats above with the mark of Tzeentch I'd Imagine they'd be around the same price as a grey knight If not more. Could make a decent rhino rushing unit?

Aint Bolt of Change AP2?

Else just take wind for the win.

But yes 10 marines jumping out and unloading 18 AP3 shots is brutal (av 6 dead marines!) and then you can wind them aswell.

Bolt of Change is now AP1 :)


One Rubric is just under the cost of 2 unmarked marines in the current dex. Champ is nearly the cost of a Lord in the current book. With having to choose a power for the sorc, there is very little chance of a 10 man unit being under 300pts.

High unit cost and one wound, I'm happy it could have been so much worse.

Cheers Wraith, you have made my day.
