Well, as per usual - along the lines of changing color schemes mid-project - I've decided to make a change to Malthius and give myself the option of twin lightning claws.
After posting to fellow FtW Blogger site's Wither the Deathwing post about the assaulty goodness of the Belial Termi Command Squad, I re-thought and reconsidered (5 attacks + reroll 1 to-hit? or 6 attacks and reroll all to-wounds? hmmm) and decided to go ahead and do the deed. The arms&shoulders on Malthius are already magnetized so I can now switch back and forth, but I had thought that I'd be playing the SBolter/Sword of Silence config for a while.
These pics show the Claws WIP still. I'm working on an outline for a step-by step on painting my power armor so I also used this as an excuse to make the change.
