Just wondering what a best combination was for black templars and everything
since I did a chapter switch from BA to BT in 4th ed. Wasnt having much luck
with the angels and I'd thought I'd try something new.
What are Black templars strengths and weaknesses?
Whats the best way to deal with strengths and weaknesses?
And Is there any good cominations on Black Templar squads
and Neophytes? Such as the Initiate/Neophyte ratio and
how you tool them up and such.
If you have a regular Black Templar initiate
squad whats the best way to tool them up?

first: DONT use neophytes they are just standard storm troopers with one toughness more and that for 11 points no way...
the BT strenght is that it can have 2 heavy CCW and/or 2 assault weapons. and with the right vow they alway hit on a 3+.
there weakness is that of all the SM they lack the numbers of winning it from CC horde armies. this can be dealed by making 5 man squads with heavy bolters or rocket launchers.

neophytes are more than worth it. If you take 9 initates and 5 neophytes plus one EC in a LRC you would get 30 attacks. The neophytes count for 10 attacks themselves.

Neophytes are most definitely worth it. Adding more bodies for a reduced cost means that outnumbering the opponent will be easier, and as Sanctus said, for 55 points you would get another 10 attacks at the same strength and toughness as the initiates.
I would try to go for the full five Neophytes on most Initiate squads, though the ones that are in Rhinos can't be given neophytes unless there are only five initiates. In general, it is a good idea to have more Initiates than Neophytes, because Phytes don't benefit from the vows, and have a 4+ save. With mixed armor, the Initiates will be able to protect the Neophytes in a way.
Shotgun neophytes are pretty much a waste of time though. I have wanted to test them out in Jungle or Cityfight scenarios where their better shooting might be useful against light infantry or creatures. They may also work better with Bolter Tactical squads than bolt pistol wielding Neophytes (because you can't charge after rapid firing).

I personally donĀ“t prefere neoptytes because the donĀ“t have that nice experiance with me. they donĀ“t get nice special weapons and having a LRC in a 1500 points army isnĀ“t that great.
