Simple possibly dumb question for you guys, are thousand sons allowed to use units from the Codex Chaos Space Marines or is there a reason they can't?


I Chapter Master 454, Chapter Master of the Angels of Justice, Warboss of WAAAGH Gubskul, Commander of a Catachan Regiment, Phaeron of a Tomb World, Shas'O to a Cadre and Princeps of a lance of House Taranis hereby pledge that I will not take up any further models til all other prior have been fully built and painted to tabletop standards. There is no time limit for this task, there is no deadline. My oath is to solemnly complete the armies I have now, to see it that they can have their glory. Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

Thousand Sons are their own codex - what is in the codex is what they get (FW aside). If you want units that are C:CSM only then you'll need to take an allied detachment I'm afraid (though you can still mark them as Tzeentchian), short of running unbound which I wouldn't recommend in most cases.

With that said, talk to your opponent. Most people won't mind a game or two with an adjustment like that.

Allied detachment only: Thousand Sons have different faction keyword than Heretic Astartes. That said, allied detachments are really easy to do.

I'm sure what you meant was they have different <legion> faction keywords, because they both have Heretic Astartes faction keywords.

Chaos Space Marines codex says: The Death Guard, Thousand Sons and Fallen deviate significantly in terms of organisation and fighting styles. As a result, you cannot choose one of these keywords when determining which Legion a unit in this codex is from. The rules and abilities for the Death Guard and Thousand Sons Legions are detailed in their own codexes.
