Thra-Kienn Terminator Champion

Had this plastic Terminator in my bits box for a long time so decided to pull together a finished marine.

It is a further test for the fish hook meat hook experiment and there are a few more things I am quite pleased with, I am not quite so sure on: a) the head; b) the force sword; c) the spikes on the carapace; and the site on the storm bolter. I will have to solve these at some point…

Terminator Test

Chaos Space Marine Terminators must have been some of the first figures I bought. I have about 50 of them nearly all metal that are in various states and ages of paint.

With well over 25 years spanning the models and painting this may take a while to get them all where I want them to be…

They call me Brother Lucky

Played a bit of Space Hulk with the kids. Still one of my favourite Games Workshop boxed games ever. Highlight of the game had to be this bit where the Genestealer rolled three ones in attack before being turned into acidic mist by storm bolter fire. Let’s get all the figures painted up this year I think!

Back in the day had a lot of time for the original game of Space Hulk. Once we’d played all the default missions in the book we started making up our own and including various Traitor Marine versus loyalist games.

The models and board sections in the latest edition are much more detailed that the original and I’m now getting our kids into this classic game. Should have bought a version where someone else had painted all the figures already! 

Work in Progress: August 2018

As always seem to have a multitude of models on the go. They’re sitting at various stages of complete, but some need more work or motivation than others and get reprioritised in favour of something that’s a bit more inspiring.

I decided that I wanted some dedicated close combat terminators and as part of a job lot of figures ended up with some Cataphractii Terminators. These one are all equipped with a pair of lightning claws and in addition to these I’ve five chaos terminators who are going to get clawed up too. Plus I’ve started gathering bits for some thunder hammer and storm shield troops too.

Then there’s the Chaos Warhound Titan. The one that’s sat in a box under the table for months. That was sold as a complete finished model and arrived in bits. Well the new base for that is underway and I’ll start thinking about pinning and gluing it back together now. Just mulling over whether to magnetise the waist joint…

Last of Terminator Core

There’s more to come, but this is the last of the core of the Terminator unit

A few individual touches in here

The librarian conversion is one I’ve grown to like

Loves the original chaos terminator storm bolsters. Very narrative.

Skull helmet for a bit of variety

Heavy flamer for effect

More with a stronger Khorne influence

Lot of time for the combi weapon options

These always seemed to look in keeping with an army in various states of daemonic taint

These followed the theme:

More dynamic poses

Mixing up the storm bolters

The last and the Lord

More big suits of power armour

Not a big fan of the medieval knight style helmets to be fair

Terminators again

It’s quite a big part of the company composition

The double chainsword combo always seemed pretty chaotic to me.

Other conversion is a bit more basic

Some more from the squad:

Always found the tusked units a bit wrong, kind of never seemed to look quite right to me

Quite a few auto cannons in the mix

Last ones for this post

It was the model with the skull mask painted up and featured in White Dwarf back in the day that inspired my entire army:

More autocannons… can’t have too many…

More Terminators

Heavy flames and autocannon…

Mix of old and new models

These ones are a bit different

Possibly need a few more power weapons

Random teleport beacon thrown in

Couple more for this post

These ones are a bit more Khornate…

…with axes

Chaos Terminators

I have a fair few chaos space marine terminators from original models through to more recent models. Here they are…

Standard bearer

Banner pole uses some carbon fibre rod

Troops, the one on the right is a really early model with a lighter shade of blue.

Plenty of skulls

Not sure what I was thinking with the shoulder pad insignia
