I might be alone on this but I'm less interested in access to more units (venomcrawlers, Disco Lords, etc) and more interested with them making the codex self-reliant in a variety of applications and really making the casting scary and the rubrics resilient.
I keep seeing TS players all over (not talking about ya'll) wishing for access to these models, meanwhile I watch players who use them get upset that they get absolutely blown off the table turn 1....
No you're not alone. I've been saying since we heard Magnus was terraforming his planets with war factories that I felt this was an easy (but welcomed) avenue to let Thousand Sons access Venoms and.... Disco Lords(?). I thought a Psychic Disco Lord would be amazingly fun and a real characterful add on.
My Black Legion is basically based around a lot of the units I can't legally use as Thousand Sons. So that is basically Venoms/Disco's/Oblits.
Cold you imagine if we got Oblits? I swear if we did I think I'd be done with the Forgeworld jank. On the Oblits I'm in 'wishlist' territory. But I think Venoms (maybe Disco's) are very plausible. I would love to so some up.
Still not great units, but fun.
The problem is, and I think this may still happen is even with Venoms, they Master of Possession spell set is so fun with them. We'd need that, and it makes sense that Thousand Sons would understand some of those powers... especially if Magnus is making these warmachines.
Just a few hours guys!!!
