Snap Fit Terminator pt 2

Well here is the snap fit terminator fully painted and based. He is for my Angels of Fury chapter hence the scheme. I did rush him a bit but I also tried to give his black helmet some shading and it looks much better in person. One thing that holds true regardless of snap fit or regular terminator is that I hate painting the eyes for terminators. Anyways here he is:

So how is the snap fit terminator? I think its great. He goes a lot faster then a standard terminator and the detail really is nearly the same as a regular terminator kit. Now I did cut of the plastic pin that snaps him onto the base. The reason I did that is because I'm doing all my Post Heresy Imperium Terminators in a Space Hulk theme which covers the hole. One thing about the snap fit is that its a very snug fit. I still put a little dab of glue on the bits before snapping them together but that's just me. It does take some finesse to get them arms fully on but other then that I like the snap fit models.
Plans as of now for future miniature work is to make all the crusade era head I can with the remaining warriors of chaos box then work on two other models then back to thousand sons.. at least that is the plan as of now. Progress will be posted. Take care

Wanna know a trick to painting the eyes on power armoured helmets, or any helemts for that matter?

I've got a fairly easy method that can give some sharp results and it's not hard to do.

... yikes, I sound like a salesman.

Seriously though, I'll put together a small tutorial and show you how I do it if you're interested. I don't care for painting them either truthfully... I don't paint regular eyes at all.

Haha sure id like to hear how you do eyes. I dont have a problem with power armor helmets really its only the terminator eyes that I really hate but the powered armored ones are a annoying also. I too do not paint regular eyes at all.

I'll put something together, maybe it will help both of us.

I, too, really like the snap-fit termies. In fact, the whole Assault on Black Reach box is full of win!

I really dig the color scheme you've got going on, too, it look great!
