Hey all. I've been thinking about Black Templars at 2k. The standard gunline list is OK, but has problems. It's basically an average Space Marine shooty list: Rhinos with melta, Typhoons, Predators etc. Instead of Riflemen Dreads it brings shooty terminators. Yadda yadda. So I want to play Templars at 2k competitively, but I don't see that list as being special enough to have game against big dogs. So I figured, why not just start from scratch and see what I can come up with? The following list probably isn't that great, but it's definitely different and maybe with some community input it may have legs. So calling all Templar players, and anyone else who might want to input, lemme know.
Hybrid Templars - 2,000pts
Champ Abhor -110
-2x Cyclone Missile Launchers
So it has some interesting things that you need to do to win NOVA style games. 6 mobile troops units, 4 of them are double meltas, 2 backfield objective sitters with longer range firepower. The Attack Bikes add more mobile melta. I might prefer to have Speeders here, but the points don't work. The 3 units of terminators are like Long Fangs, but harder to kill and shoot harder. They should, since they cost a lot more. Plus, they munch anything that isn't a dedicated CC unit.
