I was just interested to know if many people played Heresy at the club. I am toying with Thousand Sons for my next army project but I wanted to check I would be able to get a few games in when it is finished. Oould I also check what the normal points limit is?

I regularly play my 30K IW against 40K armies, I tend to do 2K against 40K and I think 2500 is better against 30K that's about right for a nights gaming.
There's a few people who have armies but it's hard to gat a 30K game

I've used my large 40k Space Wolves army repeatedly and successfully as a solid proxy for 30k and have a growing 30k Word Bearers army.

The plan is to have a full detachment of 30k (1.5 - 2k) in 2017 - I fully intend to cheat and use the WB rite of war to allow me allied daemons to get them on the table quicker.

Thanks for the replies guys. It's good to know I should be able to get a game. I guess I just need to start painting.

Totted up my 30k last night to see where I truly am in getting a 'full army' on the table. I have two main routes to 2k at the moment (trying to include as many painted and legit models as possible):

750 points of Word Bearers
400 points of Allied Cult Militia
850(+) points of 30k marines (space wolf proxies)

...or...

1000 points of Word Bearers (with a large squad of proxy marines)
400 points of Allied Cult Militia
600 (1100 to 2.5k) of allied daemons (granted by the WB rite of war)

Happy to roll either of these out when anyone fancies it?

I have both HH boxed games and the book should arrive today so I can start building a Thousand Sons army. I just don't know if I go for a metallic red or a flat colour so I can swap arms and have Blood Angels?

Colour totally up to you but I tend to highly rate anything that can be used for multiple gaming purposes, so perhaps a second use as BA is desirable?

I saw some suspiciously 30k thousand sons just this week at the club if that influences your decision too...

Thanks for the advice and I do think your right. I do love the metallic red look but being able to use the army for loyalist and traitor armies in both 30k and 40k has a lot of advantages. I'm just not sure I can take all the edge highlighting.
