We’re seeing how Terminators are about to be the spice in 9th Edition. From upgraded wargear and going up to three wounds per model, they’re even chunkier than any other Primaris model. That being said, if you’re a hobbyist that likes to go the extra mile and have your army stand out from the rest, the Terminators from the second series of Space Marine Heroes may be a gold mine for your hobby muscles!
What Is Space Marine Heroes?
Space Marine Heroes started out as some unique Ultramarines in power armor set up as a “blind buy” release. It wasn’t available to certain regions of the world at first, but then came to America and promptly sold out.
These models were all ETB and had special posing that set them apart from normal Space Marine multipart kits.
Popularity grew and a second series released as well as more regions of the world gaining access to these models. We saw Ultramarines in the 1st series, Terminators in the 2nd (and no they don’t have to be Blood Angels), and Death Guard in the 3rd.
You Can Still Find These Sweet 40k Terminator Miniatures
Because we’re talking about Terminators, we’re going to look at the models for series 2. While you could throw a couple of these models in as a part of an Assault Terminator/regular Terminator squad, you honestly could also make each one a character. They’re certainly dynamic enough. Be sure to check out this video review of the kit’s quality if you’ve got the time!
If you’re new to the hobby, you don’t have to worry about clipping things out either. We mentioned above that the first series was East to Build and these guys are as well. They just pop right off the sprue. The only thing to consider is that when you go to buy a box, you don’t know which model you’re getting.

The only models out of here they may not make great Captains is the dude with a heavy flamer, the banner (although he’s obviously the Terminator Ancient), and the other guy with the missile rack (just because that’s not a part of the Captain’s wargear). Other than that, you’ve got some great poses to make your Terminator characters stand out!
Best of all you can still find boxes of these on Amazon right now!
