Hi guys. Im looking to build a full Black Templars army where everything is in Drop Pods. Now, I know that Templars dont have the Drop Pod Assault rule like in the new marine codex, but since I started playing marines years back, ive always wanted to build a drop pod templar army. Theres just something about the idea of righteous crusaders dropping down amongst the enemy and smiting them that really appeals to me.
So I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on building an army like that. I know bolter armed tactical marines are more effective when drop podding, but I would like to include some ccw/bolt pistol marines in there too.
Would having a 50:50 mix of bolters/ccw + bolt pistol in the one squad be effective?
Also, how effective are sword brethren squads?

Alright. Templars are quite awesome indeed. The problem with the half and half cream on your squads would be the inability to shoot your bolters then charge. I'm sorry to say that its one or the other. I've seen many new players make the mistake of double tapping bolters and attempt to charge with the same squad just to have a observer make a remark about the rules..
Sword brethren are pretty awesome. They may not perform too well because they are limited by the 1 weapon restriction. You would be better off with a HQ guard. They make my buddy's army scary. haha
They can take up to 2 power weapons. My friend likes beefing the squad with almost everything. Grimaldus, another tricked out HQ. That would be 4 power weapons a turn re-rolling hits. ouch. with a holy relic. you can pump out 20+ power weapon attacks on the charge!
Oh one last note : You can use the HQ squad to infiltrate so you can tie up any shooty squad that poses a threat to your army. =]
