Just a quick question about the loadout i should use on my terminators.
I've been planning on running them with the Icon of Khorne, Makeing them all Champions, Giveing them all Lightning Claws as well.
This would yeild a great many attacks especially when chargeing, and reroll any missed to wound rolls.
However no lightning claws come in the pack (mine are currently sitting here armless.) I've also been thinking if i don't get to deep strike/teleport that they might be shot up before doing any actual damage. Is it better just to use the weapons that come with them or to try to go for the uber close combat goodness?
I can see your dilema.
This is how I did it:
Me and my friend each bought 1 box each of the Army deal. He wanted my Berzerkers and Defiler and I took his Spawns and Terminators. He didnt use his cape for his lord, so I got it in trade for one of my plasmaguns.
So I now got 1 Lord and 10 Terminators and a total of two capes.
I built the Lord without the cape and gave him the staff (which I converted to a force/daemon weapon using Archaons sword) and a combimelta.
I then used two of the walking legs of the ordinary terminators, two upper bodies and then the capes to make two Terminator Aspiring Champions. The Lightning Claws will be used on one of them, and as I will buy another Lord when they are released (this weekend) I will have another set.
Thus I got two distinguished Terminator Champions with Lightning Claws. They also look so badassed I can use them as Khorne-Lords.
I wouldnt use more, as they are too expensive. I buy them in squads of 5, so I got three fairly cheap models go soak up fire. As the unit will be used for assaults I use the Land Raider. Deep Striking LC-termies arent that good, as they can't do anything on the turn they get in. By going in by LR they can quickly get into the fighting and still pack some ranged firepower.
Havig a squad of AC termies all equiped with LC is a it overkill. It's cool, but not worth it. The other termies will kill whats left after the AC have done their job.
And also bear in mind that it isnt always good to wipe out the enemy. Then you're standing alone in open ground, ready to be shot at.
"The more choices you force the opponent to make, the better the chance for you to capitalize on his mistakes"
go to the GW site and buy the assault termy sprue or 2, each gives you 5 sets of 2 lightning claws. Also make sure to pray to Gods of shipping and handling that you get what you want, because the GW mail order team has a less than stellar reputation in some places.
Note that the lightning claws don't look as archaic as the ones on the chaos lord sprue, but that will just make your aspiring champs that much more terrifying and immortal looking.
*Here* (Killer Khorne Terminators) is a recent link about the LightClaw Khorne Termie thingy Not that it's frowned apon, I just reckon it's too much, and expensive.
You'd be better off keeping them cheap, and taking more of them. Something like Icon of Khorne, few Combi Plasma, and a Chainfist is still effective, but not a total throwaway if they lose a few models, and can still shoot something whilst walking to HTH.
Khorne Termies with more bodies in the unit is the way to go, get the most out of that static cost of the Icon, IMO
