I absolutely love the Black Templars fluff.... so much so that I'm about to fork over money for miniatures and the codex. I read somewhere that the Black Templarss do not require the main space marines codex, but only need their own. Is this true? I'm a WHFB convert, and I'm slightly less than knowledgable about 40k. Thanks for the help.
This is correct you do not require the marine codex to play BT.

yep, just codex black templars.
btw, if you're buying the templars models...get lots of cc scouts and enough templars upgrade kits to give every marine a bp/ccw combination. i also wouldn't buy the champion model...perfectly easy to scratch-build one from the upgrade kit. mine has a tabard, a two-hand sword he's unsheathing, and a back banner that says 'kill them all'
It's true. However, their codex is, I believe, 4th edition only, and I don't think it will be updated anytime soon. It is very similar to the previous space marine edition. Therefore you will find various small differences between that and the current SM codex. For example, 4+ storm shields as opposed to 3+ in 5th ed, different point costs for the same items, psychic hoods with unlimited range, etc.
