I was looking at a sprue on ebay but could not really tell. Can I put 5 meltas or 5 of anything else I wanted on them? Am I forced to put the reaper autocannon on? The sprue really looks like a bunch of random crap. Is it just a recast of the previous metal models, or are they bigger like the new marine terminators?
You can do a lot with a sqaud of terminators, the problem is that the box gives only a limited amount of parts.
There's 3 combi-bolters, 1 combi-flamer, 1 combi-melta, 1 rac and 1 heavy flamer for ranged weapons, for the cc we have, 3 powerweapons, 2 powerfists, 1 chainfist.
That sounds terrible. I was hoping to field squads of 3 with melta and power weapon maybe I could convert the extra combi weapons and then sell off the excess, but it really sounds like they are just a recast of the old terminators. And they don't even give you any combi plasma.
The combination in the box isn't to bad as long as you want more than 5 terminators, the combi-plasma;s have to be converted but there are several superb tutorial on this site, just use the search.
Take a look at this thread concerning modeling the Chaos Terminators;

And danjones87's combi-plasma guide;
I highly, strongly, unabashedly suggest you buy a Chaos Terminator Lord box as well. - Think of it as the Chaos Termie accessory sprue. It helps with the weapon load-out - solves lots of problems
You still have to make the combi-plasmas, however.
If you can swing it financially -- believe me, I know that the plastic terminators are very expensive, purchase a loyalist box as well, and mix-n-match to make a whole bunch of chaotic tactical dreadnoughts.
Don't give up -- the termie models are worth it.
P.S., they are not a recast - they are like the new loyalist models, big, awesome, and interchangeable with them! Lots of modeling opportunities.
