With the Las Vegas Open arriving, and subsequently coming to an end, we get a look at some of the high end lists out there in the meta. You can see them all over the place, but for the sake of this article, I will post up the winning list in a moment. However, this is not going to an article that discusses how to beat such a list, but rather discussing the list building trends going on over the past few large tournaments. Then we can continue to evolve our own BT lists to match.
Hi there, I'm a new Black Templar player. I know I'm late to the party, but I've been reading as much material as I can and I found your site very informative. I'm about to make my first purchases to start my army, however, and I've checked out your army lists, and they don't seem to be updated for 8th edition.
The page is entitled "Building an 8th edition army list", but there is also a sign at the top of the page that reads **Still needs to be updated to 8th Edition!**.
The lists also don't contain Primaris, so that suggests that they aren't 8th Edition either.
Anyway, my question is: Do you still advise building MSU shooty Crusader Squads with a heavy and special weapon? I wanted to double check before I go ahead and buy. I'm a lore nerd first, so I would love if I could build a more fluffy list (and I actually don't want to include any Primaris since they are heresy), but I'd be willing to play Shooty if it will win some games.
Thanks for your help, and I want to say keep up with the site as I really enjoy reading it!
- Regards, J*****
The Emperor Protects
Good day everyone! I know this is primarily a tactica website, however, I do occasionally post of things hobby related. A week ago, I was lucky enough to come across a sale by the Badger Air Brush company on Facebook that celebrated the owner's 54th birthday. Basically, for the dirtball low cost of $54 each, I could pick up their airbrushes. Since I've been itching to break into the air brush painting, I bought myself a Patriot 105 and a Renegade Krome. Just have to pick up a good compressor, suggestions anyone?
With that being said, I think its obvious that I have been wanting to finish up painting my crusade. The past few editions, my lists have centered around Neophytes, so I have not been concentrating on painting my Initiates. I will be frank...I am struggling to decide a solid list in 8th edition. There is always something that just doesn't sit well with me. So far, it has been fluid with how much things change over the course of a month. Which has been something different from what I am used to. Nevertheless, I will continue experimenting and playing games, to finalize a list that I like. And I will paint it up! Expect to see quite a few test models until that point.
This blog is devoted to the Black Templars chapter and the tactics, list building, and general musing associated with them. Readers will see occasional posts from Marshal Laeroth.
