Hiya guys, well I`m thinking of starting a Black Templar army but I am having difficulties in writing a list, they just seem so different to normal Space Marines.
Here are a few things I might think of doing:
1: I want a Marshal and a Chaplain (of course a Champion, I have no choice)
My marshal I might arm simply (power sword, plasma pistol, termi honours, and combat shield)
My chaplain (plasma pistol, termi honours,)
and Champion (abhor the witch) I think its called that I don`t have my codex next to me
2: I wanna dreadnought (obviously) but I don`t know what to give it, Should BT`s stick to close combat, or use it as anti tank, or a mixture of both
also would you all recommend Assault Terminators?
3: Troops, I dunno what to have, Usually I like 4 10 man squads (never less unless there just for long rang anti-tank fire then 5) armed with plasmas and (recently) Power fists, but BT`s can`t charge if I fire the Plasma as ita a rapid fire weapon, so should it be a flamer?
4: Are bikers worth it, I like a little fast attack and bikers are my favourite types, good T and speed
5: I really want a Land Raider Prometheus in my army, but what else should I take
Please help, I find there list harder to use than normal marines even though I am a huge Veteran lol
Is there nothing?
Don't under estimate the power of a fire support Dreadnought. Especially in a BT army. Your 'Kill Them All' special rule may hurt you on occasion, but it won't with a Dreadnought. I'd load it out with a twin lascannon and missile launcher, then make it 'Venerable' with the 'Tank Hunters' veteran skill. It'll do some damage if you make sure to use your cover.2: I wanna dreadnought (obviously) but I don`t know what to give it, Should BT`s stick to close combat, or use it as anti tank, or a mixture of bothI personally like them, but I'd load them into a Land Raider of some kind.also would you all recommend Assault Terminators?Have at least one of your Crusader Squads maxed out with 10 Initiates and 10 Neophytes. Put the Chaplain in charge of them, and maybe throw the Emperor's Champion in with them as well. Your opponent will probably shoot the heck out of them, but they'll have enough to do some extreme damage when they make it across the board.3: Troops, I dunno what to have, Usually I like 4 10 man squads (never less unless there just for long rang anti-tank fire then 5) armed with plasmas and (recently) Power fists, but BT`s can`t charge if I fire the Plasma as ita a rapid fire weapon, so should it be a flamer?
I also use a couple of Rhino Squads to support them. Their job is to run up the flanks, deploy and rapid fire anything that might be gunning for the main Crusader Squad.I haven't used bikers for about two years. I haven't had much luck with them for the point cost. Stick to 8 to 10 man Assault Squads.4: Are bikers worth it, I like a little fast attack and bikers are my favourite types, good T and speedI'd leave the Prometheus variant out of your army and go with the Crusader instead. Have it deliver your Assault Terminators.5: I really want a Land Raider Prometheus in my army, but what else should I take
Thank you, well at least one person has replied, but obviously I need more, so come on people, give it to me.
- Okay. Take a Marshal and Chaplain then.
- Hellfire pattern Dreadnaught - Lascannon & Missile Launcher, Extra Armour. 140pts. And no, Assault Termies are bad in under 2,500 unless you have a DEFINATE way to get them into assault.
- Okay, kill the Flamer. Make it a Melagun. Can't beat it for assaulting Troops choices. I highly advocate Melta.
- Bikes are dangerous as hell. Just be sensible with them.
- Well, how many pts does it cost again?... if it's more than the Dominator, patter, I won't reccomend it. Tell me the price it costs and I'll get to work on the advice (be what it may).
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
Right to everyone Prometheus costs ___pts, I`m sure you've all seen pictures of it on Forge world so you know its armament
oh and <E!_Mance> there is no such thing as the Dominator pattern
again thanks for the help but would still like more people, after tall the more the merrier lol - Grrr, sharing points is bad. - Firedrake28
