So why no Librarians? The Neophyte will also accompany his Initiate into combat, and should his master fall, another Brother will take up his training. The potential size of the Black Templars has resulted in close scrutiny by some of the more Puritan members of the Inquisition.

The Crusade’s Chaplains oversee this training and make ecition the Neophyte learns the history of the Chapter, codx watch for any signs of weakness in the Neophyte’s faith. Read more about the condition. For this reason, only the most self-disciplined and open-minded of Black Templars are seconded to the Deathwatch; the strain on their minds to tolerate the myriad different expressions of a thousand divergent Templlars cults embodied by the new Battle-Brothers of the Long Watch will be enormous, and to be forced to live and fight alongside psykerseither the other Chapter’s detached Librarians or the Ordo Xenos ‘ psychically-gifted Inquisitorswill test the seconded Black Templar’s faith and tolerance to their very limits.

With some good rolling and re-rolling codexx, you deal enough wounds to completely wipe out the unit. Something I like is that if you give your Captain or Chapter Master a bike whose cost has been noticeably reduced you can take 5 man bike squads as troops.

The Combi-Plasma isn’t really worth taking, as its anti MC duty can be left to the non-overheating Hellfire rounds that also wound better though the MC gets to take armor savesor the non-overheating combi-meltas though you only get half the amount of shots and also only upto 12″and the anti- MEQ duty can be done for cheaper with the Vengeance rounds or better with Combi-Grav.

Besides, the Stormtalon can always opt to fly around in hover mode if it wishes to do so, thereby becoming a Fast Skimmer like the LS Tornado, but still being 1 AV better all around and having superior firepower. An allied detachment can take Libbies though. It has smashed through the stars for over 10, years and came editiob the fore during the Wars for Armageddon. Thunder Hammer costs a wee bit more, but can bonk survivors on the head and make them receive a concussion, just like in the old Codex, which is very helpful against MCs.


Run away editio of 24″? All have their strengths and weaknesses. Rip and Tear, until it is done. Learn more – opens in a new window or tab. This was generally thought as a pretty simple fact, they hate all forms of witches. Yes, this is the costliest variant of the Stormtalon, but 4tg is also one that maximizes its anti-tank and anti-infantry and even anti MC firepower, because a MC can shrug off hits from a TL -Heavy Bolter or Skyhammer, but will feel the pain with 2 AP3 krak missiles hit home.

Subject to credit approval. The sleek, good looking skimmer was tougher not open-topped compared to its Eldar equivalent, had a better ballistic skill and brought some impressive weapons to bear, especially the Multi-Melta.

At points, you are looking at a very costly, but very effective unit that can dictate a battle on its own. For their price, they are a steal compared to, say, terminators, although the latter does have an invulnerable save and can deep strike, but lacks assault grenades. By replacing the side sponson Lascannon of the original Land Raider design with the Boltersthe Land Raider Crusader has given up some of its anti-armour capability in exchange for a significant increase in its troop-carrying capacity.

Throughout his service as an Initiate, the Battle-Brother gains experience and wisdom, until he may, if he survives long enough and is judged worthy, enter the ranks of the Marshal’s Household as a Sword Brother. Until that objective is achieved, the Crusade fleet will not join ediion with its brethren and its Astartes will not rest.


Multiple blasts area really amazing with the Barrage rule, as it basically allows you to walk your additional shots next to your initial one to corex more models p34, under Multiple Bblack. Of course, as is usually the rule, when a loadout is extremely effective, the GW models necessary to represent them are usually very costly, or, in the case of the Librarian on Bike, not existing at all.

On hover fast skimmer mode, you can move upto 6″ and fire everything but only upto 2 missilesor upto 12″ and fire 3 weapons thanks to PotMS. Crusader Exition are armed primarily with the holy Bolterthough given the Black Templars’ preference for fighting their foes face-to-face, many choose to carry Chainswords and other weapons more suited to the cut and thrust of close combat, epitomising the Black Templars’ righteous zeal and their drive to defeat their foes in battle.

Black Templars

Smaller Crusades are created within this ongoing Great Crusade and some of the more notable Black Templar Crusades are noted below. It is said that only the High Marshal has any idea of the Black Templars’ full numbers, but it is rumoured in the Inquisition that they actually number close to 6, Space Marines. Hinged Land Raider doors easy! Unfortunately they’re unwilling to fight beside psykers except for Grey Knights, they got all buddy-buddy with them fairly quickly, enough so that they willingly shared the STCs for the Land Raider Crusader with them, mind-wipes not withstanding of course.

A Black Templars Marshal. Read more about the condition. A Black Templars Hunter. If you have a LRdon’t bother with this as that’s another 60 bucks going to a big vehicle you most likely will not be able to use together with your LR or you are looking at points spent for these two vehicles alone.

High Marshal Helbrecht Helbrecht has been seriously nerfed. I am pretty sure there is a note on the librarian entry for Abhor the witch that prevents BT ‘s from taking librarian HQ ‘s.

Back to home page. A squad of Black Templars step out of their Drop Pod and march towards battle. However, first things first: And just look at that sword! But perhaps the biggest change 6th edition brought to the table was that Fast vehicles can now deep strike AND fire 2 main weapons.

They even have a special rule call “Abhor the Witch”. When a Black Templars Battle-Brother strikes down a champion of the enemy, he is enacting the judgement of Sigismund and through him the Emperor Himself, and continuing a tradition established at the height of the Imperium’s most terrible crisis.

As for the Space Marine codex itself, I like how almost every unit is competitive and viable now perhaps with the exception of Scout Bikers. If you are already a member then feel free to login now. And I say “more reliable” since Drop Pods can still get shot down by Interceptor weapons or scatter off a table edge, but the chances of these happening are far lower than a Rhino or Razorback getting wrecked halfway to reaching its destination.
