Khorne terminators

New guys are done. This time another addition to my khorne detachment - the terminators!
First off, I'd like to mention again that I hate batch painting but it's a necessary evil to have a squad look coherent colorwise. As a result, I don't really have the patience and don't try as hard as with single (HQ) models. That's why there is some sloppyness involved so please cut me some slack :)
The painting scheme was pretty much the same as with the berzerkers. I did, however apply some pieces of advice that came up from different people in regrard to the zerkers. Namely, I tried to add some color variety to the all redish scheme. Not too much, but still. Green works really nice with red so I did all the space marine heads with it as well as some random gems and the loincloth on one of the guys. 
Bases were fun to work with since they are bigger than of regular troops, meaning one can add more stuff and be more creative overall. I dug into my bits box, pulled out those 2 leftover rhino doors and cut skulls off of some chaos ornaments. Combined with cork "rubble/rocks" and some static grass it works nice imo plus the rhino doors give additional contrast to the models.
I must admit to the total slack when it comes to weapons but seriously, I just didn't want to spend any more time on those guys. Afterall, they were done with tabeltop in mind.
Enjoy the rest of the pics and let me know what you think!
