Looking at starting a 2nd army. Either Chaos, b/c I love the double lash/Oblit list, or Space Marines, b/c they're marines. My question is can the Chaos termies use LC's or TH/SS's? I haven't read the codex to much and can't remember. Thanks for the answer.
Chaos termis have full access to lightning claws, although no thunder hammers or shields. However, if you're really wanting to make a brutal terminator unit, then your best bet is with combi-plasma (or melta). Even with close combat termis, they generally will produce more kills with a combi-plasma & single lightening claw, as compared to dual claws.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
they cant use TH/SS's
but they can use LC
but they get expensive if you arm em for cc
so the best terminator setup is
(taken from iron angles index post)
4x termis, 4x combi plasma
Cheap and effective, also known as the Karmoon special. These guys can either hitch a ride in a landraider or deep strike where they will be most effective. They are quite capable of destroying an entire MEQ squad in a single turn.
5x termis, 4x combi plas, 1x heavy flamer + chain fist
More expensive than the previous setup but a little more versatile with the extra body and inclusion of the heavy flamer and chain fist.
5x termis, IoK, 1x pair of LCs, 3x combi meltas, 1x heavy flamer + chain fist

Thanks for the help.
Chaos Space Marines
Chaos don't get uber stuff like that... But I think starting an army just for the so-called cheese units/powers seems like a bad road to me.
