Default I've been wondering... Who fixes up damaged/injured Rubric Sign Thousand Sons?

Just I thought I had after my last battle, when a few of the Brethern were wandering around with just one wound left, leaking dust and spectral essence- Who fixes up the battered Brethern? Some odd combo of Necromancer, Apothecary, and Tech-marine?

Might be an interesting character on the battlefield...

Well, all the Thousand Sons need to do is make a human sacrifice and the Rubric marine comes back to life/are repaired. They do this after almost every battle.

Aun answered the question, but I think this belongs in the Universe forum as it pertains to fluff, not tactics

I always imagined it was some unlucky Sorceror Marine with a bucket and a shovel, and maybe a tube of Super-glue.

That's kinda impractical don't you think?

I mean, in order for the thousand sons to go to battle in their squad of 9 people, they need at least 20-30 normal dude following them all the time to be sacrificed. The thousand sons do get isolated in battle right?

I actually was thinking of coming up with rules for such a specialized Sorceror. He's not much help if a Brethern gets toasted by a lascannon/railgun, but with a combo of sorcery and welding he SHOULD be able to restore one wound to a damaged Brethern per round.

Now... does one make the chance auto (Like a medic/apothercary) or on a 4+ (Like a techmarine)?

And I imagine he'd be an Elites choices for the army...

(As for the post being moved... Well... I thought it was closer to a "rules in progress" than 40k fluff... But what do I know? )

Aun, do you have a source for that information? It seems perfectly reasonable, as they do have lots of slaves and take slaves for experiments, but I would like to see some evidence still.

I always imagined the Thousand Sons as necromancer types, that could cast the Rubric on dead or dying Marines they've fought. (that would make a cool Psychic Power )
Apart from that, the human sacrafice for reanimation sounds good and still necromancerish ;D

I read it in a Black Library book. I can't remember which one, but I think it was one of the Space Wolf books.
