2000 pts – Thousand Sons [M] vs Inquisition & AdMech & Officio Assassinorum [C]

This was my first actual Warhammer 40,000 game. Playing Kill Team: Heralds of Ruin with the guys helped a lot with understanding the core rules of the game (even though they are slightly different in this version of the game). It was very exciting to use almost all of the models I’ve collected thus far. On the other hand as I haven’t played some of them ever before, such as the Land Raider, Contemptor Dreadnought and the Storm Raven, it was definitely a challenge. But it was a lot of fun.

Thousand Sons list


– Ahriman
– Typhus


– Chaos Contemptor Dreadnought
– Chaos Terminators


– Aspiring Sorcerer, 8x Thousand Sons, Chaos Rhino
– Aspiring Sorcerer, 8x Thousand Sons, Chaos Rhino

Heavy Support:

– Chaos Fire Raptor Gunship
– Chaos Land Raider
– 3x Obliterators

Ahriman drew the following Psychic powers from the Deamonology discipline:

– Summoning
– Cursed Earth
– Sacrifice
– Incursion
– Posession


And this is what the board looked like at the beginning of turn 1.


Objective markers 1, 3 and 5 were on my side of the table, the remaining three at the far end.

Two Chaos Rhinos with Thousand Sons infiltrated on top of OM1.


Then we drew Tactical Objectives. In turn 1 I got Assassinate, Behind Enemy Lines and Secure Objective 2.


Opponent failed to seize the initiative, so top of turn 1 ended with all three Tactical Objectives fulfilled. Rhino on the far left moved flat out to 12″ from opponent’s table edge completing the Behind Enemy Lines TO. The other Rhino moved to the right and disembarked the squad of Thousand Sons which captured objective marker 2 (which you cannot see in the photo as it is placed behind the tower). Dreadnought moved to the right and fired at the Assassin that infiltrated behind all of my models which gave him Victory Points for completing the Assassinate TO.


Lastly, Ahriman was able to summon 10 Pink Horrors of Tzeentch on the far right side of the table that were then able to surround another Officio Assassinorum unit that infiltrated there.
