Kitbashing for Cheap Assault Terminators

I normally prefer to purchase full kits so that I get all of the extra bits. However, once I realized that I was getting a set of terminator legs in each set of Dark Angels veterans, I decided I'd grab some bits online and kitbash my way to a cheap squad of terminators. I won't be able to complete the squad until I purchase more of the five or six Dark Angels veterans boxes on my shopping list, but I'll be able to spend extra time painting them and I may go ahead and run the sanguinary priest with terminator armor that I've been thinking about so much lately.

Legs = Dark Angels style, came with another kit (effectively free)
Torsos =  Standard style, K&K Gaming & Bits ($9.50)
Heads & Bases = Standard style, Red Dragon Games ($5.81)
Thunder Hammers & Storm Shields = Space Wolf style, GameQuest Online ($11.99)

Total: $27.30
Regular Price: $50.00

Needless to say, I'm a little excited about saving so much money. As soon as I receive all of the bits and throw a few together, I'll share the results.

Note: Yes, I know there are no shoulder pads on these guys... I'll be using some from the Dark Angels veterans boxes for one side for sure. I haven't decided whether or not to use DA shoulder pads on both sides or to find some blank ones.
