Black Templars Jarulas Crusade Assault 1250+
« on: August 18, 2015, 03:24:26 PM »
Fellow Templars!

This is my first post to the forum and I'm looking to take my Jarulas Crusade list beyond 1250 pts to 1500+ pts.

Playing my first friendly game since the new 7ed codex against my friends who play Chaos, Tyranids and Astra Militarum as their primary armys.

My Black Templar army is themed on the Jarulas Crusade and I dont play tournaments. I was thinking of adding another vindicator and adding two more priests alongside another veteran squad to the Astra Militarum allies.

My Vanguard are the metal BT sword brethren models and the old metal castellan (originally with Axe and Combi melta) transported in the old rhino kit so cant change weapons. This is more of a centre piece visually for me in the army even tho they have never done so well I just love the models.
 
Thoughts on expanding or beefing up the army welcome.

Dreadnought (100pts)

Well, in order to take this list up to 1500 pts I would invest in another rhino for your other crusader squad, as well as a couple of Taurox for your IG. Supplement your IG with a master of ordinance, maybe a master of the fleet if you want the stormtalon to come in quick, and perhaps upgrades like medipack, and special weapons on your company command.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

Thanks Dirty Harry

I hadn't considered the upgrades for the HQ and after looking into what they do it would bring a lot to the list and make the HQ less of a tax.

Do you think it would be worth putting the Veterans in Rhinos instead, as they are now in the fast attack section of the codex and they are cheaper and nicer looking than the Taurox?

As for Special Weapons I do have some Plasma Tallarn Desert Raiders which I can add in.
