So we're talking of a unit of five. Right now I've got fixed:

- Leader with bolter and power sword
- 1 chainfist and claw

Now for the other three I have quite the doubt: either 2 claws each for the +1 attack or a fist and a claw to use hunters unleashed in turn 1 and revert to the claw on subsequent turns.

Depends on role I guess. Personally to maximise our Hunter's Unleashed, I would go with Combi-bolter and PF. For blending hordes, obviously claw, but not sure what the points difference between normal Wolf Claw terminators, with Lightning claw Cataphractii


"The 6th Legion has a reputation." said Bear.
"All the Legions Astartes have reputations," replied Hawser.
"Not like ours," said Ogvai "We are known for our ferocity. We are thought to be feral and undisciplined. Even brother Legions consider us to be wild and bestial."
"And you're not ?" asked Hawser.
"If we need to be," said Ogvai. "but if that was our natural state, we'd all be dead by now."
He leaned down towards Hawser like a parent addressing a child.
"It takes a vast amount of self control to be this dangerous" he said.

Unless they get FAQd to have wolf claws, it'll be chainfists and bolters all the way.

Loyalist Chainfists are way to expensive at 24 pts each, Chaos only pays 14.

My Cataphractii are
Sgt - twin lightning claw + grenade launcher
2x combi-bolter + lighning claw
2x combi- bolter + power fist

I think it gives them a nice balance of shooting and attacks. Highly doubtful they would get into any real combat anyways.

I wish they could have Combi plasma! But yes might need to buy some bolter arms since unless I use a Spartan the charge is very hard to achieve.

The Cataphractii sprue has plenty and look great! Especially when you kitbash/convert the bits onto Agressor models.
