I am not sure if they will all be in the same squad, or if I will sprinkle them around a bit, but the end result will be 5 more Terminators.
I was in the area so I decided to swing by my favorite FLGS Game Kastle today, I thought I might grab a box of assault Termies.
$50. for 5 termies with hammers/shields and some extra claws.
I like the poses of the new plastics, but that's a big lump o cash and I have a bunch of termie stuff at home that I need to use up.
Black Reach Termies are getting 10-15 bucks a set ( I have a few sitting around ) and the big shield does a pretty good job hiding the slightly more boring models.
I found a cool box of big resin shields with Dark Angels looking robed angel motifs made by Hi Tech Miniatures, only 4 shields $11.25
Next I grabbed a blister of hammers from Max Mini, 10 resin hammers $9.00 ( only needed 4, but will have some for the next batch)
I also picked up another 5 of the Forge Craft Highland Crag resin bases I am using for my Deathwing troops, 5 bases $6.50
Here is everything I bought, with my left over terminators.
So even if you pay
$15.00 for the Black Reach Termies
$11.25 for the shields
$9.00 for the hammers
you are still only at $35.25 for 5 termies, a savings of $14.75 and you will have 6 spare hammers.( good as I have a few extra shield bits I want to play around with.
for the $50 box set you get 5 THSS sets, 5 pairs of extra claws and better poses.
Next up, building the models.
