I'd wait to see some of the models Forge World puts out for those legions. (Some we've seen already)

Thousand Sons I would ignore completely if you're planning to start soon, since... Well, it's going to be a while.

The advantage to the Imperial Fists is that they're most easily transferred to normal 40k games. Iron Warriors would largely be in the same boat (except their signature terminator unit).

I can wait so that wouldn't be a problem! I think I will do thousand sons when the rules come out! For the time inbetween I'll probally keep on adding on my SoH and dark mechanicus!!! Thanks for all your input guys! (Maybe some Alpha legion inbetween when I get bored! I already have my own Alpharius and a spartan ready!!!)

I would prefer that you do an army that you yourself are passionate about and choose for your own personal reasons.

Well I have Thousand Sons and Mechanicum, so my bias is clearly there.

The problem with Thousand Sons: You don't know rules/paint scheme until forgeworld brings out Prospero, witch is delayed ;/. Would go with Alpha Legion (Horus Heresy part III comes in a few weeks, there's some nice stuff about alpha legion, including markings and chapter colouration)

Don't know about you: But we already have over 20 years of fluff surounding the thousand sons! we already know the markings/colourschemes and sh;t! Only the rules will be a problem! I'll do thousand sons but will use a fairly 'vanilla' army list so I know I can use it when the rules come out!!!

I'd think you'd want to wait to see the specific things Thousand Sons gets before going with them. Given the delays that are being talked about for them, though, you'd be able to do another army then do Thousand Sons later when they finally appear in an HH rulebook. In the meantime do something like Iron Warriors and slip in what Mechanicus stuff you can.

I'll do some mech in the time for the new book now you say so... Maybe... I'll see! I'll do: Thousand sons with mech allies and Imp guard for 40k as pire guard!

Jeah the problem is, forgeworld mentions at the open day that the old artworks (f. e. white shoulderpads) aren't up to date. Also, they are far far away from the classic legion crusade army list (at least psyker-sergeants) and use special breastplates (with the scarab on them).

this would be the best reference for them atm.

Most of the elements within the army list are generic to all legions. The only unit in the list which they might not have access to are Destroyers, but even then, why not? I can field about 8,000 points of Legiones Astartes Thousand Sons, including units like mk 2 Assault Marines, mk 3 Breachers, close combat orientated Tartarus Terminators. No reason not to, they were an entire legion. My guys also have white shoulder pads. I personally think it looks better and differentiates them from Blood Angels. Go wild and field whatever you think is awesome.

I wouldn't say vicious- thats more the Sons of Horus or World Eaters thing. The Alpha Legion are more.... open-minded, sneaky, duplicitous, brilliant, intelligent, etc.

Their background in HH3 is actually very vicious, in a "shock and awe" sort of way. They do all of their sneaky intelligence stuff before the battle, then apply tons of different tactics and attacks all over the enemy lines, then apply overwhelming force to take the enemy, often sowing discord and creating chaos for its own sake. It's a really nice compromise between 3rd Edition Index Astartes Alpha Legion background and the modern "Legion" stuff.

HH3 is all kinds of awesome. I though I was pleased with the Legions we saw in HH2 but man... The Fists and Alpha Legion stuff is perfect.
