now most people tend to go with the crazy preacher because he gets to reroll failed hits and charges a lot, but i prefer the librarian simply because of his force weapon and cool powers, what does everybody else prefer ?
Well, Being a Blood Angels player I don't go anywhere without my chaplain. Not only do get up 6 Death Company models at the start when I use him, he is also nearly invincible in Close combat. Chaplains get a free 4+ invulnerable save with the rosarius and when upgraded with a thunder hammer instead of a Crosius Arcanum they can be deadly to both infantry and vehicles. Of course my chaplains cost 210pts withpout upgrades so mine usually ends up costing 316pts. But when it knocks off 2 tactical sqauds, a dreadnought, and an obliterator in one game, it dawns on you that its totally worth it. Good hunting :cool:

I like the librarian because his psychic powers make him more versitile
No. 1 Chaplains and Librarians are not allowed to replace the weapons they have, unless BA ones can because it says so in their codex..... Don't yell at me, I haven't read thier codex, but unless they have a special rule they cant replace it....
No. 2 Is Force Commander allowed? if so then him, cant beat S6 I5 power weapon gotta love DA.
No. 3 If I cant pick the Force Commander then.... I like the Librarian, because he has neat abilities and 'cause he isn't used near as much as chaplains. I would like Chaplains better because they look so awesome! But, almost everybody uses them and I'm sick of all the Chaplains are the best they get a free inva and power weapon use them instead,. So every freakin' person uses them! (you guys are not freakin, just persons )
So, really I like them all but I hate all the chaplains are the best talk. I mean aern't they a little overratted or maybe the other options are underrated? Or is he really that much better??? Someday I shall know......
Qui est Mortis? Lol, the rep... neggatized for something... lol that nobody payed attention too... Lol Goodbye all, BTW This is permanent goodbye so save some bandwidth mods delete this account :D :evil: :D :evil: :D
For me it all depends on the situation.Originally Posted by inquisitor_coteaz
Chaplains are great for leading assault squads and wiping out enemy troops due to his power weapon and litanies of hate ability.
Librarians tend to come to the fore against multi-wound characters thanks to his force weapon and against psyker heavy armies like Eldar and Tyranids thanks to the psychic hood. His own psychic powers are of lesser benefit in my opinion so I don't usually focus on them too much.
Wrong.Originally Posted by Brother Darien
With access to the armoury, you can give 'nilla SM HQ selections any weapon you want. So while your already paying for e.g. the Crozius Arcanum as it's now part of the units innate point cost, there's nothing to stop you throwing a Thunderhammer, Lightning Claw or whichever on your Character too.
He wasn't saying you couldn't take another weapon alongside the Crozius Arcanum or Force Weapon, just that you're not allowed to leave it behind or upgrade it as blood_angelmarine had suggested. Although I suspect that it was simply a difference in terminology and blood_angelmarine actually meant he was equipped with both.Originally Posted by Addoran
Of course, the way the rules are written right now you can legally give your Chaplains and Librarians three weapons. They are allowed to select up to two weapons from the armoury plus they have their standard Crozius Arcanum or Force Weapon. Storm Bolter, Bolt Pistol and Force Weapon anyone?
I prefer my Librarian, he can use VoT to cull troops or force stick any independant charecters. Or Monstrous Creatures, plus I6 with a Familiar is cool.
However as my MoS is 50pts cheaper I tend to use him above the Librarian.
Both are in Terminator Armour.

I think Lleu was referring to both the Chaplain and the Librarian, not implying tyhat Chaplains can use Force Weapons.Originally Posted by Addoran
