Relictors Assault Termi Sgt - Space Hulk Mod

So I got distracted from painting some Assault Marines and knew the minute I saw pictures of this chap that he would end up as an Assault Terminator Sergeant. My Original squad of Assault Termies all have Thunderhammers and Storm Shields for survivability, but a squad of Lightning Claws don't do too badly and can get more hits in (two CC, re-roll wound) - this I have seen against me (Cheers Pornstarjedi's Ultramarines!) so this minor modification had to be done with my 'Spare' set of Space Hulk.I filed off 9 (yes 9!) blood teardrops and one chalice and had to cover two of the blood teardrops with minor skulls as they are amongst the chains at his waist and couldn't be removed entirely. The larger skull covers where a chalice was. I thought I'd keep the last two drops at his sides, can't hurt can it. The winged drops on the leg and both claws will now just be Aquila's. Each shoulder pauldron had 2 teardrops, these were the easiest to remove. I used GW's razor saw to cut off the base.

I might greenstuff over the battle damage on the chest and left fist, but he is a veteran so it may stay. Comments please? Cheers all.

nice man, look forward to see him painted.
In-game, i think that assualt terminators do best in mixed squads, i mean a couple of claws (attacks and re-rolls, and a couple of hammers (low initiative, good ++ and strenght) is a good mix and theyve worked for me.

Good luck!

Can't wait to see this guy all painted up! Looks like I missed a ton of stuff on your blog these last few weeks I've been away, time to do some major catching up ;-)
