    2000pt (hopefully) Competitive Black Templar Crusade

    Preface: I have not played any of my Marines since about 2002, and haven't touched my Templars since the battle for Armageddon Codex.

    I've decided to break out the crusaders for a GT end of this month, and thought I would get the thoughts of those more experienced than me:

    Marshall: Stormbolter, Lightning Claw, Iron Halo, Term Honors, Frag, Furious Charge
    153

    Command Squad: apoth w/ PW, Standard w/ PF, Champion, Sgt w/ PF, 2 Ini w/ BP&CCW, 1 ini w/ melt, all w/ term honors and furious charge
    328

    Emperors Champion: Accept any Challenge (will Ride w/ overside Crusader Squad)
    140

    Techmarine w/ BP & Frag (will ride w/ shooty group if fighting mech for re-roll on shooting, or will act to beef up a unit for assault)
    72

    9 initiates, Plasmagun & Missile Launcher
    160
    Rhino w/ Extra Armor and Smoke
    58

    9 Initiates, Meltagun, PW
    160
    Rhino w/ Extra Armor and Smoke
    58

    9 Inititates, 5 Neophytes, Flamer, PW
    210
    Land Raider Crusader
    265

    Predator Annihilator, Lascannon Sponson
    145

    Land Raider (will Transport Command Squad)
    250


    1999 total
    ***

    So there it is...any thoughts? Is the command Squad too expensive?

    The command squad is entirely too expensive. I heavily suggest dropping it (and their raider) for some long ranged AT. Predators and Dreadnoughts are both good for this, and there's a couple other options you could try as well.

    I ran the list tonight against some bugs, and I have to say...the HQ was like a knife through butter when I got the charge in on my terms...and acted about like a brick wall otherwise.
    I did swap transports around, and put the HQ in a rhino and the flamer/pw crusader group in the raider.
    It was pitched annihilation, and things went well until i missjudged 12" from the Swarlord and his retinue.
    I'm going to try and pick up another couple games, hopefully against mech, and see what needs to be added. I'm thinking of shrinking the HQ down to buy a rhino, and add a pred destructor w/ lascannons and a vindicator.
