Here’s the some of the rumored rules for the New Thousand sons that were spotted over on the B&C earlier:

It looks like the Thousand Sons stand ready to spit hot fire at their accursed enemies if these rules prove to be true. Add salt to taste, but if these are really coming from Hastings, he is usually spot on!

WOW that IS some hot fire! Look at that firepower, and the average of damage output per squad as well.

From this it looks like basic troops are at that mid range points similar to Deathwatch, clocking in at under 30 per man for the five man unit.

Then it’s all about getting them safely into range to use their elite level firepower. But at comparable points to Deathwatch, these guys are still clocking in around 250 kitted out with a transport. Plus they are harder to deploy because right now Chaos doesn’t have as many option as the Deathwatch there.

Plus technically these rumors, if true, also hint at 30k rules for the XV Legion as well in Horus Heresy.

So what rules are you most excited for out of the new supplement?
