Hey everyone, I've been thinking of a list to run with magnus for ITC missions over the past couple of weeks. After playing in a local ITC tournament a couple of weeks ago I've got a good idea about what to expect in my local meta.

I've only played about 5 or 10 ITC type games with my thousand sons/magnus. For the most part its been lots of Tzaangors, Enlightened, Magnus, and the usual HQ's. The problem I've been having is the usual issue with a Magnus list, Him getting shot off the table by long range heavy shots before he can kill his points worth etc.

So, taking all my games and thoughts into account so far, I've come up with something that I think could cause problems on enough different fronts/flanks to take a bit of pressure off Magnus. Obviously Magnus has to die in my opponents eyes, So im not expecting my opponent to just ignore him. I do think this list will put enough pressure with psychics from supporting HQ's, my defiler(who will have Ahriman's 24" range prescience support/reroll everything stratagem) and a Tzaangor bomb to force my opponent into some pretty difficult target priority decisions. Prepared positions if I dont get first turn will also help a lot of my survivability with this list. Especially my cultist screen.


Main plan is to have magnus, all psychic characters, and screen march up the field toward objectives/Enemies agressively. I will more than likely deploy my defiler aggresively also so he can stay within 24" of ahriman for +1 to hit without having to move him much or if at all until I wanna get him into melee. Rubric marines will play objectives.

Tzaangor bomb will really be used as a huge distraction or if my opponent doesnt deny me backfield they can drop backside to harass something.

Anyhoo here is the list any suggestions or ways to make my plan work better is welcome. Keep in mind until I get the psykers/Magnus and the cultist blob across mid field I like to use magnus as a general and let him support my psykers for reroll 1's on their psychic tests.

Personally I think this is going to be a tough list to do really well with at an ITC event, but it really depends what your expectations are.

The one thing I would consider is dropping the lascannons off the Defiler. It’s tough to get mileage out of them on that platform.

Otherwise it looks like a fun list.

Hey prot, Thanks for the reply. My expectations are not top table by any means. I know IG/IK lists will wreck me without question. Against other mid tier armies I think this list will perform well though. My reasoning for the las cannons on the defiler is solely based on the prescience buff from ahriman. If i can get my defiler to a 3+ BS combined with rerolling everything from the daemon strat i think he could be worth it. I felt like I needed sonething to take pressure off of magnus at long range. My thought was to put his shots into something heavy that is trying to take Magnus out. It may not work how I want it too but it makes sense seeing that Im lacking in long range Anti tank weapons.

I would avoid discman like plague. Too cost uneffective, when comparing with DP.
