Let’s take a look at the Thousand Sons’ tools of destruction!

So that answers that – the Terminators are packing a “heavy warpflamer” and the new “soulreaper cannon” which is based off the rotor cannon from 30k. The Rubric Marines are getting “inferno” boltguns, “warpflamers” and access to the soulreaper cannon as well! If I remember correctly the rotor cannons aren’t quite as powerful as the Assault Cannons so maybe they will take a slight dip in strength value.
Or maybe they won’t and the Thousand Sons will just have AP3 Assault Cannons with rending – ha! My gut is also telling me that these weapons will also have some type of Soul Blaze (pg 172 BRB) component to them. Or maybe the same rules as the Tzeentch flame psychic power…the one that does more damage when you fail but grants you a buff if you pass. I guess we will find out when the book hits shelves!
I still have one question that no one seems to be talking about: what are those?
That Terminator has some Iron-Man style cyclone missile launchers on his shoulders! I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that the are going to be called something involving “warp” “soul” and/or “missile” in the name. Your guess is as good as mine!
So what do you think of the new soulreaper cannon and the rest of the Thousand Sons’ goodies?
