I'm planning on building a chaos lord with jump pack and a thunderhammer, as I don't have a lord with a thunderhmmer yet and I figure a lord with a jump pack is the best place to put one.

 

That brings up the question of what the best secondary weapon is for him?

I would say:

Relic gun if available

Combiplasma
Combimelta
Combibolter
Plasma pistol
Murder sword

Operating on the assumption that you actually want to use the thunder hammer, if you're looking for another melee weapon, definitely a lightning claw - it's only 5pts and you get an extra swing with that on top of your thunder hammer attacks. A chainsword would be the second best choice. Third place would just be a plain old bolt pistol for me to throw out point-blank Daemon Shells.

Im a big fan of the murder sword.  In certain match ups this weapon is extremely powerful.

What do you know, I had absolutely forgot that this was even a strategem in our codex...

My Thunderhammer Lords sports a Combimelta as a sidegun. Allows for toasting some armour and shooting a Daemon Shell at 24".

Thanks everyone - you've given me some options I wasn't even considering before.

I like plasma in any form. Combi plasma if on foot, plasma pistol if using wings/jump pack etc. Though I think slash winged lords are better for us generally at the moment!
