View Full Version : Terminus, where to go from here.

Hi all :)
Before X-mas, I picked up a used Terminus model to convert, but having played him a bit, I just haven't been able to make him work...
I really want to run Revenant Crew with Rengrave (and a Bokur usually) with Terminus, since Tough Revenants give my regular opponents fits, but other than that I have switched around my lists constantly to find something that makes sense.
So with the following basis, what would you add? Fire away with all and every combinations you think might work out for a 35 pt. "all-comers" list!

Okay, I'm going to assume you're using the Revs as both a screen and sac pawn bait. So you're good on that front; I'd take some heavy hitters (such as Banes) to help get rid of any large threats to Terminus. I'm also a huge proponent of using Blackbane or Satyxis as a first wave unit, tying up and killing everything in their way.

Yep, my intent is using the Revenants as Sacrificial Pawns and as a screen to the big guy himself.
Does anyone have any experiences with min. Soulhunters + Darragh with Terminus?

I always start my Termi lists with:
1-2 Pistol Wraiths
3 Brute Thralls
If they kill stuff, then its tough, and if its not, it comes back.
Pistol wraiths are a good form of denial he lacks.
Also brutes hit HARD
And bane knights get to vengence if you use them to sac pawn, keep that in mind

Darragh is Terminus' best friend; I actually don't use Soulhunters, rather just abusing Death Ride, but I could see them working as a first wave unit. I still prefer Satyxis or Blackbane for that job though honestly; you might not move as far, but the numbers and defensive mechanisms they bring feel far superior.

I have had a lot of luck with both Blackbanes and Satyxis with my (e)Skarre lists, so I might have to try them out some more with Terminus.
I can see why Death Ride is great with Terminus; getting that extra 1" seems like a good deal.
Thanks so far, and keep it coming, please :D

I always say Scarlok is a must and with LLT 2 of 4 spells can be used for free. It works well with Hellfire that i seem to spam and it brakes up units some times making them easy to kill. For 2 points hes well worth it even jest as a charge blocker. And if he kills something its even less focus you have to spend next round since he culls souls.
