Sorry if youre trying to read this on the mobile version, wouldnt let me work with the normal forum colours.

 

I tried my hand at making a rough 1500pt list for the Thousand Sons that I could aim toward painting. The list is far from optimised, but I really have no idea what I'm doing with TS this edition. making armies is hard when you have to think of so many powers. So my questions are:

 

1) Do I use ahriman as the magic machine gun, or buffing agent, and use a Devastating magic+arcane focus exalted to do the mortal wounds?

2) I know a single mauler is silly, but it's what I have. Hellbrute will move forwards also. 

3) 2x small units of TS for smite spam or one larger for resilience?

4) lots of points in the scarabs and termie sorcerer to keep them alive - bad idea?

 

Any input is welcome!

I don't think there's anything wrong with the list. I would however always try to get a familiar in on a Termie Sorc. It's just such a good piece of wargear it's pretty much an autoinclude  for me.

Ah yes, I'm sure I checked that box on battlescribe - either way I still have 150pts or so to play with - what would you add?
