Good evening all! This is my first discussion post beyond uploading my custom chapter WIP, so I feel like a turtle poking his head out for the first time. I looked through about 4 pages of discussion topics trying to see if this has already been covered and did not see anything. Thus if I am repeating a thread I apologize and will serve my penance with grim resolve for my transgression.
My friend and I were painting and putting together our armies a few weeks back. I am working on a Dark Angels Vanguard Detachment and he is building a Crimson Fist Vanguard Detachment. While we were working on it, he said he was going to use some Cataphractii Termies in his elite slot. He asked if I was going to use any other pattern besides the Indomitus pattern, to which I replied no because, well, I can't.
So my question is, why don't we have access to Tartaros or Cataphractii Terminator armor? I want to make a quick note here and say that I probably wouldn't use either mark as I love the way Indomitus looks and I feel like it is a superior suit. But wouldn't a Chapter known for having the most lethal and deadly Terminators in the 40k universe (not to mention the most numerous suits of Terminator armor) have access to Tartaros and Cataphractii models? Is this just GW dropping the ball? Or is there a reason that I have overlooked?
