Game balancing aside, isn't it a little bit pittifull that terminators, the pride and joy of the Space Marines, can't take any of the good heavy weapon choices? Imagine if termies could take plasma cannons, or lascannons, or even combi weapons like chaos can. Another thing I'd like to see is terminators being able to down-grade their powerfists to power weapons and save a few points. If chaos can do it, why not space marines? Powerfists are cool and everything, but against power weapon wielding foes, they get chewed up pretty bad before they can strike.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
I guess GW limited them to even out the playing field. But Terminators were used to clear space hulks and other tight areas. Therefore the long range punch of a lascannon wouldn't be as useful when clearing a swarm of lightly armored genestealers as a assault cannon or storm bolter would be. But your termis can have missile launchers! so there!
It would suck to have a armor +2 and invul +5 lascannon to face. I think have a squad full of powerfist is far enough.

IF ENEMY = strong and tough THEN TERMIES = good
You already have a unit who have 2+ saves and 5+ inv saves who come with storm bolter and power fist standard, and you want more?
R U 0K!??!? BUHHHHST WUUUULFFFFF!!!
Besides, it would probably zoom up the price of an already expensive unit.
A friend of mine wanted to replace storm bolters with twin linked plasma. That would drastically increase their firepower.
a model in terminator armor can have a combi weapon as long as they have access to the armoury

I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight... razor... and surviving.
attwoodc, what combination of termies do you find most effective?
