This is templlars the only Dreadnought variant that can be armed with Hunter-Killer missiles, namely up to two, and furthermore it can take Ironclad Assault Launchers to deny enemies assaulting it from gaining additional attacks, as well as helping the Ironclad Dread assault into cover – useful, since unlike Dreadnoughts it also has the Move Through Cover USR. A Chapter Keep only recruits a few individuals a year. It is the Initiate’s prerogative to say when his apprentice’s training is complete.
A maxed out squad with MMs will cost you points, but in an age where Riptides, Wraithknights, Flyrants, Greater Daemons and other nasties roam the battlefield, this amount of concentrated firepower can come in handy. They wore all-black armor and had black crosses on their right pauldron and shields, and were sworn to protect the Temple of Oaths OK, the reality is that Forge World wanted to templarw including Black Templars into Horus Heresy.

Crusader Squads are armed primarily with the holy Bolterthough given the Black Templars’ preference for fighting their foes face-to-face, many choose to carry Chainswords editlon other weapons more suited to the cut and thrust of close combat, epitomising blacm Black Templars’ righteous zeal and their drive to defeat their foes in battle.
And finally, there’s armorbane, so you’re rolling with two dice instead of one for armor penetration. This means some sort of attached IC that balck tank wounds is a must, if you want to field these guys more than merely codez a suicide squad. Subject to 4h approval. Not only this, but the option of giving it a Heavy-Flamer turret is gone now. So it was changed. One of the new Chapters born of this time was the Black Templars.

Personally, I field an Autocannon Predator with 2 Lascannons as I can’t afford to pay that much more points to swap a 2 shot weapon for a twin-linked 1 shot one at same range. If you drive them up to the enemy in a Redeemer or Crusader, they can take the Hurricane Bolters and still receive an assault grenades bonus the time they assault out of the LRquasi “on the house”.

Anyways, regarding the models: Perhaps his only saving grace although I wouldn’t call it that is that he is now Fearless, and can thus make any unit he is attached to Fearless as well, so your guys dont have to fret if they lost a combat by multiple models and then would have otherwise had to pass LD at 5 or 6.
Fail even one inv.
