If you are looking at model to paint try looking at the WHF line. they have a few goodies. Chaos hordes for character and some Icon stuff from tomb kings.
 I find 1k sons to be very "unseen" powerful so there really is not a lot of converting. The troops are all the same (power armor and bolters all around please) but with charactful, Characters.

 Army wise there is a TON of info one the CSM Tac/army list, Give that a brows.

I made a Thousand army list yesterday for fun (thinking of proxying it to see how bad it is).

Ended up with a regular sized chaos lord, 3 x 9 thousand sons (including 1 decked-out sorcerer), 8 flamers, 2 predators with all lascannons and a defiler. this should give a resilient army. another squad of thousand sons would be good but variety is fun :) that was for 1850 pts.

cant forget to give asp champs cool psy powers. also 1k sons termies are deadly. tough and u can give em pys powers like doom bolts or wind of chaos. look at the sample army list on GW's website. those lists are deadly
