Wouldnt it be cool if they had the same abilities as the troops?
What i mean is, if you had a Tzeentch army, wouldnt it be cool if there were thousand sons terminators that had the same abilities as the thousand sons (i.e. Inferno Bolts, 4+ inv save, aspiring sorcerer, fearless etc.) or Khorne Terminators with 3 base attacks, all squad upgraded to champs so an extra attack then have furious charge on top of that!
I know that sounds pretty stupid and very over-powered, (especially a full squad of 10 Khorne Terminator Champs with a total of 50 attacks on the charge with all power weapons...overkill!
). But would be more fun to play and will really make terminators elite troops rather than being a regular marine in terminator armour. To balance things, just give the elites in all armies some upgrades.
I mean, the concept behind this is to play a game and at the end you can say that your termi's killed 2or3 squads single handedly. You rarely see that happen in games because of all those AP2 weapons that shoot them in the face all the time, they need an extra something to make them worth their points.
In a game, lets say you give them mark of Tzeentch but during the game they get shot turn, after turn with them AP2's and you fail some inv save so you lose some termi's. Then you lose a couple more termi's and they need a morale check, but oh no...you fail and now your termi's are running away...termi's shouldnt run away. If they were so skilled that they were bestowed with terminator armour or skilled enough to kill the original owner of the armour to wear it for themselves then running away in battle is the last thing you think they would do considering the fact that they are pretty much wearing a tank.
So even if you gave them just +1 str and fearless i would be happy. Any thoughts/comments?
I know i've rambled on a bit here but once you start typing, you cant stop
