Howdy all! Its been a little while now since the new codex has been released and I wanted to give everyone a little bit of time to digest just what happened in our little world of the Black Templars. Lurking around the B&C forums, it seems that there has been some early successes with our book that I'd love to explore. This codex has obviously been a little bit of a paradigm shift for our lists, as things have been buffed or nerfed (via lack of buffs). GW has released some hold-us-over PDF's containing our BT specific units with the Angels of Death special rule, as well as releasing a FAQ adjusting all of the Imperial Armour: Forces of the Adeptus Astartes units with AoD. Nevertheless, it feels like GW is pushing us in the direction of primarius marines and in some cases, I am okay with that. Let's take a look at some of the highlights (new or changed stuff) that I enjoy for our new codex.
Hello again! Sorry about the late post, when all of the new previews are getting put out and all that good stuff. But as of last night, my little Neophyte as joined the ranks of the Imperium! :D Anyway, let's take a look at a couple things that have been leaked with the review videos of the new Space Marine codex.
Hello everyone! As you've almost certainly have seen, Games Workshop has been releasing snippet previews from the new Space Marine book that goes on pre-release soon. All of which are extremely exciting, especially the release of all of the new Chapter Tactics. They have also released a bunch of tidbits on the new primaris units that they are going to have with the codex, but for now, I am not going to concern with those since we are only looking at some basics of each unit. Not enough is known about them yet. A couple of caviets here: First, this is a Black Templars website so I am not going to do comparisons between the new Chapter Tactics. For the short-term analysis...the IF and CF chapter tactics got buffed, as did the Black Templars. The others seem weaker than they were before, but not so weak as to not be viable. All the tactics seem to DO something now. Anyway, the second caviat is that the BT 101 guide is obviously about to become obsolete, especially the unit analysis page. So expect this to disappear for a while after the new codex gets released so that I can update it. With that out of the way, let's take a look shall we?
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.
