Rubric terminators are basicly Rubrc marines wearing terminator armor, rather then power armor. Like their marine counterparts, they are the warriors of the thousand sons that have been turned to dust by the rubric of ahriman, just that these ones were wearing terminator armor at the time. In game terms they are tougher, and slower then normal terminators.
Terminators that have been marked by tzeentch instead have normal fleshy bodies, and exhibit at least some psychic talent. they are no more tought then normal terminators, and arn't as slow as the rubrics. In game terms, normal terminators with psychic ability.
Normal termies are chosen termies with the MoT, wheras rubric termies are upgraded from rubric squads. Read carefully through the first page of the Tzeentch section of the chaos codex to find out how to do this.
Yup, the Rubric's makes some hardcore terminators alright. They are also very cheap for what you get, less points then flying possessed and with quite some staying power. Perfect for dropping behind (or within) the enemy lines and keeping behind your own as a counter asault unit.
You dont get to upgrade any of the ranged weaponry with the tzeentch termys do you? I am more of a khorne player that is branching out a little so I never really thought about termys much. I would think that nurgle termys would be hard as nails also.
Rubric termies all the way, having a squad of two wound termies is a real pain for your army. While they can't change their weapons they are the only thosand son unit that gets more then one power weapon *YIPPY* Give them a champ with bolt 'o change and you got a nice unit to use as a fire base. However IMO neither type of termies can beat a squad of flammers
