I'm not completely up on all the background and such, but I do know that different MK's of power armor have been talked about before in white dwarf articles and online discussion. But I'm wondering, have there ever been different MK's of terminator armor too? Or has it always been the same old terminator armor?

There have been a variety of different models, certainly. Formal marks...not as I recall.

Here's a link to a good site which has some of the older "marks" of termi armour. Not sure how official it is fluff-wise but it's worth a look if you're interested.

Great site - I have this min, never knew anything about it, apart from it being Terminator armour:

I believe that the second suit in that image is called 'Cataphract' (MK.I) armour or something. Five, six, seven and thirteen are all variants of the same current Tactical Dreadnought pattern while eleven and twelve are just heavily customised/scavanged variants on the current pattern as well. Ten is the original version of the Aegis TDA worn by the Grey Knights, and eleven is the current (improved?) version of that armour. Three is MK.II IIRC, so I guess that four is MK.III. Oh, and the first is unique to the Adeptus Custodes. Also, MK.III power armour is considered the original 'prototype' for Tactical Dreadnought Armour - so you could include that too.

Never seen this website before, very nice link. It seems to be a little more factual (i.e. explaining when these suits were actually made by GW and less about the 40k historical timeline) but still very nice indeed!
