@WindstormSCR , the dread would be awesome, the Van Saar conversion sounds groovy, and I thought terminators weren't worth it this edition so far...??

eh, personal taste and they work ok-ish in my local meta
I think DW Terminators are more worth it than the rest because of SIA and loadout flexibility, especially three heavies
basically take three heavies and 2+ TH/SS, tank on the SS and try to make contact with something

Deathwatch and Death Guard have viable terminators...that’s a lively pair

That's good, because I love terminators, and I only have Deathwatch ones :smile:

I have mixed one on a couple times, even without a shield they make a difference in a flexible use unit
Most of my DW armies lately have just been primaris though

I pretty much only run vets with at least one terminator, either for carring an assault cannon or wound tanking on 2+, or both.

@Kohato I now feel the need to watch The Matrix again; shame they didn’t make sequels

so, speaking of conversions
someone at my local is doing a rat-men army
skaven bodies for genestealer cult, IG bodies with skaven heads for brood brothers AM (mostly scions), and then stormfiend/war machine conversions for tyranids
carnifexes = doomwheels apparently!
or stormfiends, he's still working on the big bug conversions
the Scions he's done look great though
