I don't get what people are complaining about... they seem like a flat out upgrade over legion terminators, especially with free thunder-hammers.
I think it’s that some people simply really, and I mean really hate converting models.
If they came with an extra set of thunder hammer hands we wouldn’t be having this issue at all.
But FW from inception is a segment of the company that has and still does targeted a more experienced player base and a more experienced modeller, so doing a little (or a whole lot) of converting is sort of par for the course when it comes to 30k.
Alright, take for example the Crimson Paladins again.
They originally came with ap3 with rending sunset swords, awesome against hordes, but I wanted to make a Anti elite unit and luckily they can take power axes.
To do that a I had to first cut off the hands with the swords from the arm because they’re moulded on (as will the hands with the Cenobium). I had to take right handed FW Tartaros thunder hammers, cut the top off, and mate them with FW Cataphractii power axes with drilling and pinning, and then put the hand on the handless arm.
A bit time consuming for a simple change of weapons, but hey, stuff like this is pretty common.
