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
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves, will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?
