Title: pre-hersey terminator armour

I have been looking into pre-hersey terminator armour and i'm a little confused. Each legions terminator armour, are they the same build or does each legion modify the armour?

Can you give any visual images to the terminator armour?

I don't know the actual answer to your question, but I can give the following evidence from Horus Rising as to the issue of TDA amongst the Legions:

QUOTE
Like all the men in his specialist squad, Sergeant Rassek wore the titanic armour of a Terminator, a variant only lately introduced into the arsenal of the Astartes. By dint of their primacy, and the fact that their primarch was Warmaster, the Luna Wolves had been amongst the first Legions to benefit from the issue of Terminator Plate. Some entire Legions still lacked it.

Horus Rising, page 153 (Dan Abnett)

The use of the word "Specialist" implies that TDA suits weren't necessarily originally exclusive to veterans

The following Legions are inferred as having TDA in either the BL HH Series, artwork or another source:
- Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus (HH Series)
- Ultramarines (Artwork)
- Space Wolves (HH Series)
- Thousand Sons (HH Series)
- Alpha Legion (HH Series)
- Emperor's Children (HH Series)
- Dusk Raiders/Death Guard ((HH Series => Deathshroud?)
- Imperial Fists (HH Series)
- Iron Hands (HH Series)
I'm not sure about these legions: Blood Angels, Iron Warriors, White Scars, Night Lords, World Eaters, Word Bearers, Salamanders or Raven Guard.

Hope this helps, ;)
