Default Making plastic Terminators Better?

I waned to make a plastic Terminator better.
Because I was thinking of updating them to get better for fourth addition but I already have a bunch of them.

So I sat down until I came up with a better Terminator.

I have a special DIY army called Desert Eagles and I made came up with this idea just for them.

He has a special helmet with goggles, (the hole army does) new chest plate, arms, gear and canteen.
He is a desert Terminator.

The photo is bad but let me know if you like the idea and what I have done?

Thanks for looking I was thinking about adding some Terminators to my Desert Eagles.

So I converted this up to see if I could do something cool enough to make them out of plastic instead of waiting to buy the new ones next year?

The helmet is the same one I have been using on all my Desert guys.

THanks for looking.

(Oh and this is all stuff I bought before they raised are prices here so now I'm just building and not buying at all.)

Hey thanks.
No havent sent on any of my stuff but a couple buddies of mine work for GW and they have the link to my photo site.
The hole site.
So if they wanted something they have it.


The plastic Terminator was made from the set of plastic term legs and the back.
Then I cut the front of my commander chest plate into a z shape to match up with the terminators back, also you have to cut the belt and lower area off until you like the match up.

Remove the small round mounting hub on the terminators waist you wount need it and will need to mount the new upper half you just made in the center an thats in the way.

Then I bits ordered a couple of the new GryeKnights Terminator arms because I have used them on my other conversions in this army so they match.

I added purity seals because of the older armor etc.
The helmet is on all of my marines and its from the imperial guard cadian sentinal sprue but you will want a marine helmet not that one.

Thats it.
Really.

Not bad and glad you like it.
Check the painted version if you havent.

Hope that explained it good enough for you.
