1750 Thousand Sons list idea. (is this good?)

Post by ManaGoner » Sun Mar 19, 2017 9:16 pm

Hello everyone I am building a CSM army and am working on the Tzeentch portion. My list idea is as below.

Formation: War Cabal
Leader- Exalted Sorcerer, Mastery level 3 and Spell Familiar

Troops-10 Rubric Marines with Soul Reaper Cannon in Chaos Rhino x2

Elites- Scarab Occult Terminators 5 man squad

Warlord- Magnus the Red

came to a total of 1750 on the dot is this a good list and what changes should I make if any?
Thank you for your time in advance, Cheers!

Unfortunately as far as I can tell you are not able to take Magnus in a war cabal, only ahriman, or a daemon prince

Are you planning to make a Thousand Sons Grand Coven? If yes, then you still need an Auxiliary choice. As the War Cabal is the Core and Magnus is Command choice.

And as Salamand3rs4Lyfe said you can't take Magnus in the War Cabal, besides for it to be a War Cabal you need to take 1 more Exalted Sorcerer or regular Sorcerer.

Because a War Cabal consists of the following:

1 of these: Ahriman, Deamon Prince, Exalted Sorcerer or Sorcerer
1-3 Units: Exalted Sorcerer or Sorcerer
1-3 Units: Rubric Marines
1-3 Units: Scarab Occult Terminators

That means, you need atleast 2 HQ choices for just the War Cabal.

17 power. / 362 pts. Daemons of Nurgle

Yes, currently your list isn't legal. The cheapest auxiliary choice that you can take is a single predator. I like giving them Lascannon sponsons and keep the Autocannon turret. That way you gain a multipurpose tank with significant dakka for only 115 pts.

I also think that bringing Magnus under 1850 pts is rarely worth it and he kind of needs a list that gives him a few more warp charges in his pool. Having either an allied detachment of Tzeentch daemons with an Herald and one or two squads of Pink Horrors or taking a War Coven as an auxiliary choice helps him having enough Warp charges to do his job. I don't recommend going for the Rehati War Sect under 2000 pts because it will take all your points for little benefits.
