I put my 30k Alpha Legion army on hold over Christmas as, well, I didn't really have the time for much hobby sadly. Now that I'm back at University though I've finally got a bit more free time (ironically) to work on painting the army and so I've decided to start on the Cataphractii Terminators that come in the Betrayal at Calth set.
To be honest I hadn't planned on including Terminators in my first 2500 point list but after painting the Terminator Character from the Betrayal at Calth set, they've really started to grow on me. The idea of these heavily armoured, and elite, warriors smashing through their opponents battle lines is just too badass to ignore so they could end up making the cut...
I personally prefer the Tartaros Pattern Terminator armour as I like the more advanced design since, fluff wise, it was developed in tandem with the Mk IV 'Maximus' pattern Power Armour, which is also my favourite mark of power armour. That's not to say I don't like Cataphractii pattern Terminator armour, it is supposed to be the more heavily armoured of the two, represented in game by having an invulnerable save of 4+ rather than the standard 5+.
I have assembled the squad to be equipped with 4 power fists and one chainfist, as well as 5 combi-bolters. They will be led by the Terminator character model that comes with the set, who will be the squad Sergeant. Only 1 model has been fully painted so far and the other 4 are works in progress atm but hopefully I should have them done shortly. Till next time!
