So I need more CP, and I was thinking of adding Chaos Nurgle Daemons for Durability against scion plasma/tautox prime gatling guns/hot shot lasguns.

Friend said cultists would be cheaper and less of a buy in.

The othe option is Red CSMs (Renegade Pirates, forgot their name).

What option do you guys think? I'm basically running:

2 Butcher Cannon Contemptor Dreads
9 Enlightened with bows
2 Tzaangor Shamans

Ahriman
2 Daemon Princes
30 Tzaangors
2 5 man Rubric squads
1 5 man Terminator squad

I don't really like Red Corsairs with Thousand Sons, but I guess you can go that route if you want truly 'survivable' stuff.

What about horrors, to stay within the codex ?

I can do horrors, but they are not Thousand Sons, so they require a separate Chaos Daemons Detatchment as well.

Red corsairs give a filthy amount of cp. If cp is the goal they do it best imho. 9cp fof less than 350.

For comparison with the Red Corsair detachment: 

 

A 3x Tzaangor + 2x Sorcerer Battallion detachment is 416.

 

A Cultist version would be 296. 

 

That is if you were *determined* to stay mono-codex. I know I do personally (Splashing daemons being my only personal exception) 

 

I personally *usually* try to go Duel-Battallion with my T-sons at least and bring the helm relic. That is usually a decent amount of cp starting at 13.

I might try to do mono-codex and just take some cultists for taking objectives.
