Default Csm terminator weapon option conversion

Hay guys I have got a bit sick of having the option but not in the box, so here are my attempts at conversion s of pow maul and sword for my terminators.
1st off pow sword champ

Used the pow fist top, thigh from an old bezerker and then sword hand off FW term(thanks B&k).
Next up one of the mauls

Again used fist base then left gauntlet off old school csm then flail off fantasy chaos sprue, and to make more SciFi I drilled through a chainsword and added that to top. What you guys think?

Also looking for some ideas for heads as I personally think the tusk ones generally suck eggs. The unit will be up to ten with 4 axe 4 maul and 2 swords. Trying to make them all more individual as they meant to be individual champs, suggestions please:-)

The chaos Knight sprues from fantasy is your friend if you want chaos-y looking swords and maces that scale lovely with termis.

The heads are tricky as they way the back torso goes you don't have much choice. You either remove all the horns on chaos knight/ warrior helmets or stick with termi ones or go bare headed. OK for dead 'ard guys but its silly having an unprotected head

Two solid conversions.

Did you mean you do not have the option for more than one maul, as all the CSM Terminator kits I have came with a maul? Or have they changed the sprues?

Not to bitch about the notorious gw, but ...... My issue with most of the chaos plastic is that they don't give you the options that they have access to eg csm box- only h bolter no auto, no miss launcher and no las can. The terms from fifth and sixth both come with pow wpns but you don't get enough in the box to outfit them all with said wpns, not even a sword. So I made these and put them on here to inspire others as they have inspired me.

Thanks for the comments

Nice stuff, i like the flail! As Barnster says, the chaos knight bits are great for chaos termies. I used heads, maces and pauldrons on my terminators. Here are some pics for what is worth

Thanks Lemmey, but it was your plog that gave me the spark for the flails a few weeks ago.

Got some SW heads in the post so should be cool.

Did my first bit of magnetiseing with a reaper, hflamer and combi. It was a lot Easter than I thought. Pics to follow.
