Heresy Era Imperial Fists - Cataphractii Terminators built

Typical springtime in the Rockies here, it snowed an inch and a half a few days back and today it's going to be in the mid 60's! After the fun I had building the Contemptors, I pressed on and banged together the Terminator squad as well:


After the experiment with the cheap-as-chips terminators I'd done for the Thousand Sons, I knew these guys were going to get power fists and chainfists. I decided to go plasma-themed with them as well, with a pair of plasma blastguns and four combi-plasmas. It also has the benefit of allowing the unit to have more spot colors with the blue plasma coil glow.


I had a few parts left over from the Iron Hands build early last year, and put together a second sergeant armed with a thunder hammer and storm shield which allows me to run them as two 5-man squads, but I have to say I like the look of it enough to think I may have to do a full 5-man squad of 'em!

It's warmed up enough that I could primer them earlier this morning, still waiting for it to warm up a bit more before I risk the first sealant coat on the assault squad - looking forward to getting the transfers and weathering on them this weekend and call that unit complete!

Agree with Zab, that Sgt looks the business. Very much like that 40K IF captain... (who's name escapes me)
