Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok, next month my local gaming store will be having an escalation league starting at 500 pts. I thought this would be the perfect time to start up a Black Templar army since they just got some stuff and was wondering about some ideas for the 500 pt. list. Only restrictions are there has to be 2 troop choices but there doesn't have to be an HQ until 1000 pts. I only have the crusader box and sword bretheren squad but I plan on getting the core army this weekend so some advice would be nice.
For games that are low in total points, the more warm bodies you use the better. I'd be doing my best to take at least 3 Crusader squads. Make sure to make them flexible enough to take on any foe. This includes a model with a meltagun/powerfist, and maybe aheavy weapon, depending what you want to do. The more troops the better.
Hmm, ok, well as of right now I know there is going to be a Tyranid, Death Wing, and Eldar army so what heavy weapon choices would be best for an overall force against these guys and what would be best in the far run too?
