I know that you are encouraged to paint and moddle your armies how you seem fit. But my question is this. Can you paint a black templars army any other color and them touny leagal. I mean any color but black.
I don't see why not; just say they are from a later founding or something.
Up, up and away!
I have benn told tyhat this would be a violation the their codex and would not be allowed at a GW torny.
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
Paint them any color you like. There would only be a rules issue if you use colors and iconography that belong to another chapter that has official rules (e.g., you couldn't paint them red and put blood drops on their shoulders and say it's a BT army.) As long as you preserve the Knight's Cross & Skull iconography throughout the army go nuts with your color scheme. If you scrap the iconography as well as the colors, make sure you don't look like any other 'official' chapter.
I do play my succesor chapter from black templars... PURPLE TEMPLARS they fight the very same ;D
Roleplaying? Miniatures??? Visit: Calabozo Criollo Foros
i have actually fought agaisnt orange black templar at a GW tourny...so yeah they would be legal.Anyway have you EVER heard of an army which you can't paint any way you want? (yes you can even make strawberry pink dark eldars)
-A tau, dark eldar and slaanesh csm player
-And always on LO chat..
If you don't want to paint them Black/White/Little Red, then don't call them Black Templars. My own army is a good example, they are branched off the the Black Templars as the Black Templars were off the Fists...I still follow the Black Templar rules, I used stuff from the Black Templar upgrade box, still painting the Black Templar crosses the normal color, but my army has bits of blue, red stripes down the legs, silver shoulder trim, green eyes, gold aquilas, and green shoulders (for the Troops)...I even am fielding models that follow Helbricht and Grimaldus' rules, even Gimaldus' model...I'm just changing the name of the characters and am calling my chapter "Legio Imperatoris" which is as close to Latin for Emerpor's Legion that i can get.
What you can't do at an official GW tourney is have them look like *another* official chapter that has rules, and use Codex: Black Templars.
Blood Angels army painted black with Maltese Cross on their shoulders = No
Black Templars Army painted red with blood drops on their shoulders = No
Black Templars Army painted hot pink with suggestive adult toys on their shoulders... ok.. .still No
BT Army that doesn't look like a different official chapter with it's own rules? Fine.
