Hey black templar players:
I've got a few questions since I'm redoing my list I'm looking for a different way/style
of playing and I hope you can answer a few of these questions.
What would you take for a 2k point list?
How would you go about collecting it/ like blockwise ect.
I already have:
2 squads of SMurfs
1 8man assault squad
I'm wondering what to collect next. ect...
And I'm also wondering if taking razorbacks in small squads would work really well.
And how would you play your list against the other races of the universe.

EDIT: read lord's post that is much better than mine

DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
The first and most important thing your BT army will need is more men. I suggest buying SW Bloodclaws as they come with bp+ccw arms. You will also want an EC and a Chaplain as well. Marines, an EC and a Chaplain will form the core of your army. After that you will want heavy support. I would suggest starting with speeders (I like Tornados myself) and a Predator or two. You'll also want to max out your assault squad to 10 men, or even add a second squad for higher point battles(you mentioned 2000 pts). Make sure you include a powerfist and a couple of guys with plasma pistols. The best way to add assault marines is to buy a plastic jump pack sprue and add it to bloodclaws. Also give your Chaplain a jump pack so he can accompany the assault squad. Later if you can afford it you should consider a LRC as this is the best ride a Templar can have. Don't waste money on Rhinos or Razorbacks. Rhinos suck in 4th edition and Razorbacks aren't worth the points for what you get. Dreadnoughts on the other hand are good to have. Here is a list in order of importance...
1) More men - buy Bloodclaws!
2) EC + Chaplain
3) Jumpack sprue
6) Tanks (Predators)
7) Land Raider Crusader
Good luck and good hunting!
