First off, can I use Black Templars Codex and rules with my army? Second, whats the biggest difference from that of the regular SM codex? I'm pretty much asking for any input on Black Templars...
Thanks for taking the time =)
The biggest difference is the way they play. You basically have to take an Emperor's Champion who provides you with a vow, which you can choose. This will be similar to the Chapter Tactics of the SM codex, but most people just go with the Accept any Challenge. Besides that, you don't get Scouts, Devastators, or Whilwinds, but can get 20 man tactical squads (10 marines, 10 scouts) and tactical squads can take Land Raider Crusader dedicated transports.
Other then that, your dealing with an older codex to a newer one, so things like Storm Shields aren't as powerful and Relic blades dont exist, your marines dont come with Frag Grenades and things like that. You are basically playing with a 4th ed codex, compared to the newer 5th ed codex the SM's use.
