Default Thousand sons 1500pts Themed. (with "easter eggs!")

Well this list took me all day yesterday to make up. The reason for that is because of the "easter eggs" I put in it (there's 3 in total)

As always it's theme first effectiveness second, though that doesn't mean that I want to loose all the time.

so here is the list:
[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]HQ[/size]

1 Sorcerer "Thomankhamun"* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 162 pts
-4 Thrall wizards
-Mark of Tzeentch
-Warp focus
-gift of chaos
-daemonic aura
-Twisting path
-Familiar
-frag grenades
-Talisman of Tzeentch
-Power weapon
-Bolt pistol

[hr]

2 Chosen of Ahriman* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ** 162 pts
-4 Thralls (2 each)
-Bolt pistol (each)

[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]Troops[/size]

9 Rubric marines* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ** 261 pts
-Mark of Tzeentch
-Champion
-Wind of chaos

-powerfist

[hr]

-Mark of Tzeentch
-Champion
-Wind of chaos

[hr]

-Mark of Tzeentch
-Champion
-Wind of chaos
-Inferno bolts
-powerfist

[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]Elites[/size]

6 Rubric Terminators* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ** 252 pts
-Mark of Tzeentch

[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]Heavy Support[/size]

1 Dreadnaught* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 135 pts
-Plasma cannon
-daemonic possesion

[hr]

[size=14pt]Total=1494 Points[/size]

[hr]
[hr]
So what do you think?-Oh, before you suggest what I change I recommend you find the 3 Easter eggs I've hidden, 2 are more subtle than the first. Then bear that in mind before you suggest changes. (and I'll know if you haven't found them ) [size=2pt]here's a hint, you may need a calculator for 2 of them[/size]

(and I've put this here rather than the Tzeench tactica list because I don't want to double post)

Ok, each unit's subtotal is divisible by nine, your points total is divisible by nine, and the number of Marines is divisible by nine.

As for effectiveness, I'd say drop Wind of Chaos and Inferno bolts in your marine squad for Bolt of Change. This'll be your main anti-tank.

How can you have only 2 chosen?

Drop Twisting Path on your Lord for something actually useful. I don't know what, but, just, something. It's a useless power.

They are Chosen of Ahriman, they are a special unit for the thousand sons that was in a White Dwarf.

YOU HAVE NO ANTI-TANK!!!!! drop the Dreadnought and get some pred's with all lascannons. I would NOT change Wind of Chaos for Bolt of Change. Wind of Chaos is a horribly powerfull power and if you get a pred or two with all lascannons then you should not have to worry about tanks.

I would have to agree with Abael, drop Twisting path. It looks good on paper, but stinks in a game.

well done Abael on getting all 3 things!

I can get a pred with lascannons and couruscating flame for 135 points (which is divisble by 9) and if necessary I have power fists in squads. however, I did have a squad whihc was 241 point in a previous incarnation, so maybe I can get 2 preds and drop a Thrall (thus keeping a total of 45 models)

I'll take a look at it, then put up a new list.

Alrighy then, here's the update:

[size=16pt]HQ[/size]

1 Sorcerer "Thomankhamun" 144 pts
-4 Thrall wizards
-Mark of Tzeentch
-Warp focus
-gift of chaos
-daemonic aura
-frag grenades
-Krak grenades
-Power weapon
-Bolt pistol
-"teleport homer"
[hr]

2 Chosen of Ahriman 234 pts
-4 Thralls (2 each)
-Bolt pistol (each)
-combat weapons
-familars
-bolt of change

[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]Troops[/size]

9 Rubric marines 243pts
-Mark of Tzeentch
-Champion
-Wind of chaos
-daemonic talons
-daemonic visage

[hr]

9 Rubric marines 243 pts
-Mark of Tzeentch
-Champion
-Wind of chaos
-daemonic talons
-daemonic visage

[hr]

9 Rubric marines 243 pts
-Mark of Tzeentch
-Champion
-Wind of chaos
-daemonic talosn
-daemonic visage

[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]Elites[/size]

6 Rubric Terminators 252 pts
-Mark of Tzeentch

[hr]
[hr]

[size=16pt]Heavy Support[/size]

1 Dreadnaught 135 pts
-Plasma cannon
-daemonic possesion

[hr]

[size=14pt]Total=1494 Points[/size]

[hr]
[hr]

An alternative should my opponent be unhappy with me using the chosen is thus:

- the chosen
+ 1 predator with TL lascannon & coruscating flame
+ 1 lieutenant with 4 thralls bolt of change bolt pistol, combat weapon & krak greandes

[hr]


That way I have pretty much the same anti-tank in my army, and the same number of models.

Daemonic talons and visage are there for the 9 with the point value (and I can use the awesome champion of tzeentch from the Warhamme range) as well as deling with any dreadnoughts that come my way (I learnt my lesson the hard way)

I think that your going to be hard pressed with enemy armour, but then again what TS army isn't? :P

The dreadnought looks like it was made for a tzeentch list like this with a plasma cannon. You should try and get the forge world model.

I am intending got get the FW Dread, it's just too good a model to pass up!

Hopefully 2 bolts of change will see the worst of my opponents armour off in the first 2 turns and if not that's because they are either using tank company in whihc case I won't be playing or have some stupidly heavy tanks that aren't worth going after anyway.
