Greetings, I am the High Marshal of the Black Swords, the toughest strike force in the Imperium!
I am here to request an infomation on the effectiveness of a Chaplian in Terminator armour!
As i have only just become High Marshal i also request any tactics or strategies you ahve used that are effective against the Waauugghh! rebel ultramarines and blood angels and i also need a strategy to down some very pesty Imperial Guard who have decided to attack our armies!
All infomation shall be apreciated.
Argus, High Marshal of the Black Swords
Well a Chappy in terminator armour is like a normal chaplain, but with a 2+ save.....
Obvious point aside, Chaplains are pretty handy. Their litanies of hate rule has saved me many a time. I find them most effective in smaller games, as they don't need much wargear to be combat effective. They may also be the cheapest HQ choice, although I haven't good my codex to hand. I would say that unless you need Ld staying power (in which case go for a commander) In games under 1500 pts use a Chaplain. 1500+ usually requires the skills of a Librarian.
Hope this enlightens you my most revered space marine high Marshal...
Thank you for this report Will i will be in fact playing on the smaller 750 point all the way to 5,000 once The Black Sword recruits have finished basic training! I will be recruiting a terminator command squad and eventually a Librarian!
We must also requisition some heavy weaponary and tanks to add to our already substantial fire power!
Aha, then may I reccomend the addition of a bike to your Chaplain. This will allow you to zip anywhere that he is needed fast. The added toughness and firepower will also boost his presence. Give it a whirl with a proxy, see how it works. I always do this in <1000 pt games with my Dark Angels.
Edit: Woohoo, just notived i've become senior. Yay !

I am Argus of the Black Swords!
I have only ever encountered a scout platoon of Black templars and i consider them power but unworthy of fighting along side the Black Swords, we are a different fighting force to them as we are strong in both mind body and tactics!
