Default Apocalypse, are you left out?

I have a complaint. I know no-one likes them but here it is. The Black Templars don't get any legendary units! Sure they can use the SM ones (or any for that matter) but none fit into the fluff. You can use the Armoured spearhead but personaly I don't like it, everything else is based on chapters (which Black Templars don't have) and the two Tanks which Black Templars can't have; Whirlwinds and Vindicators. Just thought I'd complain, and I was wondering are there any other players that feel left out?

How about we just wait until we get our hands on the book and read it cover to cover before we decide that we're missing out.. hmm?

I mean inquisition are covered by whatever IG and SM get.. but for other armies - I'm sure there'll be more datasheets released over the Internet and through White Dwarf. As much as there is in the Apocalypse book, its hard to keep everyone happy...

I agree with .mace.

Sure, the other races and chapters are getting loads of stuff, but hey, there's a chance that the Black Templars will get something too!

Sorry, but this just ticks me off.

"Every other of the 999 space marine armies get something special, but I don't!" How do you think the Tau feel? We get kroot, and groups of tanks. Thats it. Nothing new.

You, sir, are insane, and clearly wrong. Read the back of the book, there are several Crusades listed. In them are something like 10 Whirlwinds total.

And then there is the fact that we do have Vindicators, they are even listed as a unit we can take in our codex! They are a short ranged siege device, not long ranged.

The Templar are a Crusading Chapter, and we can have those things.

Besides with the removal of so many restrictions in Apocalypse you could probably just ally whatever your chapter wouldn't normally have in smaller games. I know I'm taking a Baneblade and I don't have an IG army, it's just such a sweet tank!

I mean the Masters of the Chapter, new Vet models, Land Raider Spearhead and most of the other boxes being released for Apocalypse are still useful to the Black Templars. You can even use the new Vets as Sword Brethren or to add some character to Crusader squads if you wish.

There is really very little to complain about... except maybe the annoyance of moving so many models...

Datasheets are not Chapter/Regiment/Legion/Warband specific? So why are you worrying? You can mix & match from all of the other races as-well. The Masters of the Chapter could be multiple Marshalls led by Helbrecht, or multiple Castellans led by a Marshall. Do yourself a favour, stop worrying and use your imagination, Apocalypse games are totally and utterly designed for games of fun and legend, not tactical slugging matches.

Plus, GW will be releasing further Datasheets via the Internet and WD.

And if you dont see anything to your liking, why not try and make some of your own house rules for the black templar.

If the people you play with agree you could try some out, ask on here for ideas, and then show us what you came up with in the finished article.

I see house rules as a very good idea here given most apocalypse games will be friendlies with your mates.

I am excited for Apocalypse. I already have enough models for the Demon Gate, and Tide of Spawn Datafexs..Finally I get to use my large and glorious LatD army in all it's gribbly glory!
