GW: Wochenvorschau mit den Black Templars
Die Kreuzzügler des Black Templars Space Marine Ordens kehren kommenden Samstag mit einer aktuellen Codex-Erweiterung und begleitet von einer ganzen Schar an neuen Modellen auf die Schlachtfelder der fernen Zukunft zurück.
The Sunday Preview Is Back in Black this Week with the Second Wave of Black Templars
Sunday has rolled around once again, and it’s a very special one as the heroes of the Black Templars rematerialise with a full crusade fleet of new releases.
All caught up? Good, now strap your crusading boots on – we’re going for a jaunt in the 41st Millennium.
Many of you had your first taste of the new Black Templars with the recent Army Box, and their reinforcements are now coming in force. These models will be available for pre-order from the 13th of November and are rather appropriately being released on Black Friday – the 26th of November.
Helbrecht specifically asked for that day. Speaking of whom…
High Marshal Helbrecht
To lead a Chapter as zealous and uncompromising as the Black Templars you have to be an individual of supreme willpower and stubbornness, and High Marshal Helbrecht is that guy. Driven by righteous hatred and the singular desire to rid the galaxy of mutants, aliens, and heretics, his fury is matched only by his skill with a blade.
High Chaplain Grimaldus and Retinue
The Hero of Helsreach, as Grimaldus is known, is a spiritual icon for his fellow Space Marines, epitomising the selfless endurance they all aspire to. When Helsreach Hive on Armageddon was overrun by Orks, the High Chaplain held the line until the walls and roof came crashing down around him. Believed dead for days, he dragged himself free from the rubble carrying three divine relics, which his Cenobyte Servitor retinue now carry with him into battle.
On the eve of battle, a Black Templar may receive a vision from the Emperor that commands them to conquer the enemy’s strongest fighters in single combat. These blessed Space Marines are granted the Armour of Faith and the Black Sword, powerful and ancient relics of the Chapter, and dubbed the Emperor’s Champion. They immediately go on to commit tremendous acts of violence.
Black Templars Crusade Fleets are often led by an experienced Marshal – similar in role to the Captains of other Chapters – who oversees the order of battle and commands their troops from the front lines.
Castellans are junior officers among the Black Templars, assisting the Marshals in their day-to-day tasks and leading contingents of their battle-brothers in shock assaults. Much like the Lieutenants found across the Adeptus Astartes, they’re fully capable of raising hell in close combat too.
Primaris Crusader Squad
The Black Templars have historically fielded specialised Crusader Squads as their rank and file, with Initiates accompanied into battle by Neophytes eager for front-line experience. The same holds true for Primaris Crusader Squads, which are a powerful Troops choice capable of absorbing massive punishment while charging at their foe.
Sword Brethren Squad
Those who master the art of the blade and rise in rank to become one of their Chapter’s Veterans are inducted into the ranks of the Sword Brethren. Much more than a simple Veteran Squad, Sword Brothers carry a wide array of deadly weapons into battle and are resistant to the drawbacks of their Templar Vow.
Codex Supplement: Black Templars
The rules for these new units can be found inside Codex Supplement: Black Templars, which also contains Crusade rules, Stratagems, Relics, and Warlord Traits. True devotees of the Emperor will want the collectors’ edition with a beautiful soft-touch cover, though you’ll want to act fast as there is only a limited number available.
Black Templars Upgrades and Transfers
Upgrade your army with a packed set of optional extras, including additional weapons for your Primaris Neophytes and a full set of Black Templars Relics. If you’ve ever wanted to give one of your warriors the massive Sword of Judgement, this pack is right up your alley.
Dice and Datacards
To round off your collection, pick up a pack of Black Templars-themed dice and some handy reference datacards to make your tabletop crusading as easy as can be.
Space Marine Chaplain
It’s not just the heirs of Sigismund who are getting new releases, as a classic Chaplain returns to bolster the Reclusiam of your favourite Space Marine Chapter. Previously only available as part of the Space Marine Heroes set, this Chaplain is now ready to strike out on his own.
