The Storm Bolter and Iron Halo are, with Artificer armour at least at my local games club there's rarely much difference from standard Power Armour, It's up to you if you make a great effort to stylise it to look more impressive.

The Thunder Hammer is a rare thing though, I've only ever seen a Non-Terminator one on a gamesday model... Maybe others will know where to find what you seek...

I think ive thought of a way. On GW online there is a spac marine captain with a thunder hammer, and i could easliy attach a strom bolter from the terminator sprue

Well, if you believe it will work, then there's always the alternative: Thunder hammer from the Terminator Assault Squad sprue. As for the storm bolter, it's in the Commander sprues as well, and i know one of my captains has one from a Rhino.

It is entirely up to you though, just remember the sightly different scales, so if you Do use a terminator arm, don't make any plans for using a normal shoulder pad with it... I'll compare and see how Terminator arms on power armoured marines looks.

Edit: Ok, pretty much looks like the older armour styles, should work well. Now, i'm off to waste Terminator parts assembling a Pre-Heresy style captain.

Terminator arms are slightly noticeably thicker, but just the hand looks fine

The Fleet masters other arm is meld entirely to him, what I mean is that it is also connected with most of the arm, not just the arm pit.
