T5 Terminators as mentioned by GML brings them too close too to custodes.

A squad of terminators should feel like a squad of terminators, the subtle difference between Space Marnie terminators work in groups whereas Custodes work as a group of individuals.

The problems terminators have are (assuming the points were accurate)

Too Slow
Too Fragile
Not Enough damage output.
Don't Create Command points
Few Uses for them

Could we fix these, better deep strike options, more durability (without copy-pasting other "terminators" better damage output)

Being able to fire a storm bolter within 1"
Ability to gain a +1 to armour..... somehow... maybe based on them being "in the thick of it"?
Closer deep-strike
Turn 1 Deepstike
More Attacks
Ignoring -1 with Heavy Weapons
Ignoring -1 with Powerfist
Ignoring -1 with Thunder hammer

Not obviously all of the above... maybe some? Others?

I think they should just ignore rend -1. I think that'd make a huge difference.

I use them in my space wolves sometimes,  and they do work. I've come to really appreciate chainfists, especially when fighting marines. The +1 attack in the first round of combat helps a lot.
