I just was curious which army has the best terminators (pointwise), or your favorite terminators.
I'd have to say Thousand Sons Termies. Come on 2wound temies who doesn't drool at that????
"Normality is a thing of the past, jump on the bandwagon and be different like everyone else."
Yeah, it's going to be Thousand Sons termies for me. I mean, a termie with one wound annoys most players, but two ? It's a bit cheap, but they are survivable.

Imperial Guard 1/1/1</span>
<span style='color:blue'>Blood Angels 1/1/1</span>
Not to mention tzeech two wound termies are 2 or 3 points cheaper than a normal chosen termy.
And dont forgot there shooting rule for tzneetch!
WOOHOO Go dust filled spirit link walking armor!
Death Guard termies do not suffer the other disadvantages of TS termies, and can have upgraded weapons. Rubric termies merely have normal power weapons and nevertheless strike at I1. DG termies also can spread nurgle's rot.So my vote for Death Guard.Btw i'm Slaanesh player.
MEAT IS MURDER
Deathguard are all fine and good but the I1 is caused by the powerfist, not by the rubric as slow and purposeful no longer lowers initative. So the deathguard are striking at I1 as well unless upgraded. If I remember correctly you can put a reaper autocannon or anything else you jolly well please on your aspiring champ so the no special weapons rule isn't all that bad.. the real disadvantage of the tzeech termies is the slow movement and the lack of a charge bonus. That alone is enough to offset the lower cost and the two wounds.
My vote's still with the tzeech even though I'm a necron player.
Minor note: Tzeentch Terminators do not gain an extra wound or the Slow and Purposeful special rule. Terminators are upgrades purchased for Chosen, and under the description of Mark of Tzeentch it states that Chosen, Lords, and Lieutenants are granted the Sorcerer ability instead and do not have to take Psychic Tests.
Ultimately, they become more expensive, as you equip them with Psychic Powers. On the other hand, a unit of Terminator-armored sorcerers equipped with various fire-power sorceries is a darned creepy concept. Chuckles.
Ultimately my vote is for Undivided. Cheapest, versatile, no rules drawbacks... vunderbar!
Minor note: Under the tzeech entry it says "you may upgrade normal thousand sons to terminator armor at 13 (I think) points each. This upgrade causes them to become elites"
Basically tzeech get two kinds of terminators: Uber sorcerers that usually are spewing inferno bolt goodness or a squad of super mean two wound "husk" terminators.
Both are extremely cheap for what they do.
