Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was playing Black templars for a while and i absolutely love the models and BT upgrade boxes. However recently i am wanting to do a trait chapter as i feel they could be more competative/fun to play.
So I was thinking I could use the models and call the chapter the Iron Templar, make them a off shoot of the Black Templars and use the same symbol and models. Where there is white on the BT i would use codex grey (shoulder pads and robes). I would be using the same symbol though. Reasoning behind the chapter would be the disagreement of the BT's lack of heavy long range support thinking it would help in their fight to eradicate xeno scum... etc etc.
Would any of you have a problem with a fellow player doing something like this, or it this a common thing to do? Would this fly in a tourny? Any thoughts, suggestions.
As long as you realize you can only use 1 codex i don't forsee an argument, IMO trait armys need fluf.
Let The Blood of our enemies flow!!!
yeah, i wouldn't include any benefits/drawbacks that the black templars themselves have. I would just use the standard space marine codex.
I wouldn't see any problem with making up your own codex chapter using BT models. Space Marine Chapters can use any symbols, color schemes, extra adornments, etc. that they want.
good enough for me... thanks guys... i appreciate the input.
Just for ****s and giggles. With the standard SM codex, you can become the Black Templars anyway (without acolyte//initiate mixed squads & blessed hull).
