Dual Lightning Claw Chaos Terminators
« on: February 23, 2015, 11:50:34 AM »
Like the title says I was looking for a cost effective and cool way to create 10 chaos terminators with a pair of lightning claws. In pops the idea of using the old style terminators of which I have 14 chaos and 13 loyalist terminators. I have a base model now for the claws. I found the warp talons kit to have some rather cool and thanks to a bit shop inexpensive way to grab several pairs of them. I then had the issue of shoulder pads which the new plastics looked way too bulky. So again I purchased warp talon shoulder pads and will be using other Chaos Space Marine shoulder pads. Rebased these puppies and Boom! 



What do you all think? Does it work?

I think it looks great.

If you were hurting for shoulder pads the thing I've done is just add some spiky bits to the un-armored shoulder to give it that bulk.

Just add spikes to everything, fix it the chaos way :)

Love the spikes idea. I'll have to add some tonight for the next batch. Disappointed I didn't think of it as you're correct it's the chaos way. They are my first and only joy. I've made a few more last night and will keep moving toward a squad of 10 MoK terminators. Ready to deep strike and enjoy glory for the blood God.

They look great to me, certainly befitting of Chaos Terminators!

Those warp talon LC's sure do work nicely. Almost perfectly sized too. I'm almost inclined to buy a set of Chaos termies, a Raptor set. Then build the Raptors and use the WT LC's on the terminator set.

I have so many terminators already though xD

I don't know why...but sometimes it does feel like the Warp Talon/Raptors shoulder pads do actually seem a tad larger than a normal chaos marine's.  Heck, it fell like a really really tight squeeze when I put the normal Chaos shoulder pads on my kit-bashed Warp Talons.

Anyways...neat trick and I will remember that when i need to make a dual-claw termie.

Hello all thanks for the comments as it helps to hear if others agree that something is cool. The older chaos terminators are actually smaller than the new ones. I think that's how they work so well. I have a few extra I may give a new one a go. Another quick point, I tried it on the old loyalist terminators and it looked horrid. So here's an update on my 10 man squad. Thinking MoK, icon of wrath and some either huron(master of deception) or deep strike glory.
