Imhotep's taking of Helbrecht's arm basically confirms that Ward is writing Black Templars. Prepare yourself for mechanic horses and knightbrarians with non-psychic sword powers.

I can see it now. All those incredible holy powers the SoB have, imbued into the Black Templars.

The caveat being they're probably warp-related, but the BT don't care because they think it's the Emperor's will.

Ironic! Like Grey Knights bathing in SoB blood ironic! WHAT A TWEEST

I can live this Wards fluff if I get mech horses, holy orb of Antioch stays, the EC gets challenge rules like its meant to be a mother fucking Duel.

Talking about Neophytes I wish there was a rule or something that encourage you to make them survive.

Because till now they are meatshield, hence why I use Guardsmen for that

>> No.17031237

I'd like WS5 for elites and HQs--if they're the motherfucking BT, same guys who have never stopped their warpath since the emperor died--the guys who regular Templar look up to and hope to be like better pack a meaty punch.

If the GK are the only psykers they're willing to deal with, it'd be nice to have a few Nemesis Force Weapons on hand. That, and maybe a unit of paladins as an elites choice. Hell, why not?

If army-wide vows are absolved in the next codex, let them have similar choices for specific units/HQ slots. Hell, the 'crons get them on certain units so why shouldn't the BT.

The real question is "What is their gimmick?" What part of their fluff screams out for realization in the next codex?

>> No.17031268

I don't think the Grey Knights would loan out their units.

>> No.17031272

> What part of their fluff screams out for realization in the next codex?

Preferred Enemy: Xenos Armies on everything. There'd be a sidebar listing all the pre-existing codices that count as xenos, like they have with Ressurection Protocols/Pain Tokens/Psyker Levels. They'd accidentally miss one codex.

>> No.17031297

They are a Crusader Chapter. Maybe beside having huge Initiates Neophytes squads, being lead by Chaplains like some kind of unite upgrade.

BT could have Imperial Guard unites maybe just Guardsmen or the likes as support after all Yarrick is with the BT it would not be surprising the some fanatical warriors beside the marines.

Or maybe a lot of brotherhood thing with zeal and all that jazz.

But they really hate heretics as well.

>> No.17031373

Not anymore. Haven't you read the new fluff? Heretics are a problem for other chapters while they go fight the xenos and spread the word of humanity. They'll still fight chaos if they run into it, but they hardly go looking.

>> No.17031390

Doesn't crusading involve liberating human worlds, too? And in the process find some that have turned to heresy.

Wait what? Where since when?

BT have a vow in both codex about hating the witch.

I still advocate something like an army-wide heroic intervention vow. Because FUCK YOU, I wanna pod in and assault in the same turn.

How about being able to allocate wounds to initiates regardless, and any squad can take initiates so long as they have power armor.

Devestators could have Heavy Bolter Initiates for less points than a full neophyte, and command squads could buff out to 15 men with them. Make them a true Marine Mob army

Humm Initiates are the Marines Neophytes the scouts.

I still think that BT should not have Devastators and if they do, they should be focus in close range fire power. Like Melta bombs, meltaguns, power fist and so on, while leaving the Crusader squads with swords and all kind of light weaponry.
