Default Black Templars

Why do the black tempars not have there own place. I mean you dont need the original spacemarines book to play them. So there basically a new race so why not give them there own place.

I think he means why not give them their own board...

Black Templars are Marines. They may have different organisation, different units, and different Special Rules... but so do Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Space Wolves and 13th Company.

Templars are Space Marines, so here they go and here they stay.

So? Black Templars play like Marines, look like Marines, and have been Codex-standard Marines for most of their existence. This Codex changes nothing; Templars are Space Marines.

I think the reason why GW made the Templars stand alone was because they wanted to let newer players get right into the them without have to get the space marine book first.

Remember this day, gentlemen... it's the first time in over a decade GW hasn't ripped us off.

barely. and why should black templars be treated with any more importance than any other major space-marine sub-chapter?? beyond that, if you split off a board for black templars, how many people do you think will populate it?? bugger all, when you get right down to it. its not really a valid option by any stretch, especially given this board isn't purely devoted to marines
