Hey guys, hoping for some feedback on my list here. I’m thinking of running a battalion of Thousand Sons with a Knight detachment (total CP would be 11, possibly 12 depending on which Knight traits get chosen pre battle). My thinking is that the TSons can hold objectives, get in close firepower with strong bolters, and screen while dropping Smites and other powers across the board. They’ll also pose a serious melee threat. Meanwhile a trio of shooty Knights will take care of the heavy firepower.

Weaknesses would be heavily mechanized armies (saw a battle report today with an IG brigade that had 11 tanks, oof) and armies like Blood Angels and maybe GSC that want to be in melee and have a lot of good delivery methods as my model count is small so screening will be tough.

Here is the list:

I am considering dropping the Exalted Sorcerer down to a sorcerer and removing the top rockets from the Despoiler to buy another squad of Cultists for screening.

Thank you for any feedback!
