I belive the rumour says swap, plus you need to be taking a black templar HQ to gain access to crusader squads so I do not think you will be able to benefit from other chapters tactics.

Someone probably already said this, but I'm thinking the basic marine point reduction will also mean the loss of the free weapon upgrades and the vet sarge.

I don't want no friggin sergeants in my crusader squads.... I won't be able to troll with my powerfist anymore...
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.

from faeit 212 "Honor Guard:
Honor Guard cost 10 points less per model
Retain Power Weapons, Bolter, Bolt Pistol, Artificer Armor, Frag and Krak Grenades
No change to Champion, just points decrease"

Well then don't we have something beautiful here??? 25 points for a 2+ marine with a power weapon of your choice? Plus a bolter, bolt pistol, and nades? And 10 FRIGGING LEADERSHIP? The ramifications of this are immense. 10 Honor guard with champion all with Paxes is only 260 points.... 25 points more for la banner. You then have 10 models who have 2 base + one off hand + one banner = 4 p axe or p sword attacks. 5 on the friggin charge.... imagine 10 of these guys +  Tigurius giving them shrouded and stealth? Or Cassius giving them rerolls to hit? For Just over 400 points you can get 45 P AXE ATTACKS rerolling to hit. Plus 6 more for the champion @ WS 5. I can't think of a more effective deathstar unit. 285 point honor guard with banner + 125 point Cassius. Coming out of a storm raven or w.e. I repeat 51 p axe attacks on the charge for only 285 points......... oh and Calgar can take 3 friggin' squads. Maybe a warlord trait to make em troops?

I really hope that they stop making Liberians as "Fine Cast", GW really doesn't seem to have them nailed down yet (So they have weird proportions and huge defects).
TEH BANEBLADZ, THERE EVERYWHERE!!!

I honestly believe if you want a good librarian, a box of grey knight terminators or grey knight power armor is the way to go. You have all the unique options inside those boxes, don't have to worry bout finecast, and you can build and paint a really solid figure.
