Default 1500 Templar List Plz Rate

This is my first list with the new codex.... inspired by this paragraph in the codex.

"If the Crusade is able to land heavy equipment, an equally destructive tactic is the armoured spearhead. Manoeuvring at speed, behind a far-ranging screen of Bikes and Land Speeders, the Black Templars smash their powerful tanks unerringly through the weak link in the enemy army, armoured columns slashing left and right before eliminating the remaining enemy strong points.
- pg. 9

HQ
Emperors Champion - 125
Suffer Not the Unclean to Live
Crusader Seals
Black Sword
Armour of Faith
Bolt Pistol
Frag Grenades

Reclusiarch - 145
Power Fist
Terminator Honours
Holy Orb of Antioch


Crusader Squad - 205
7 Initiates
2 Neophytes
BP/PF
Rhino
Smoke Launchers
Extra Armour

Crusader Squad - 484
9 Initiates
5 Neophytes
BP/PW
LR Crusader
Blessed Armour

Crusader Squad - 221
8 Initiates
2 Neophytes

Smoke Launchers
Extra Armour

Bike Squadron - 158
4 Bikers

Land Speeder Tornado - 80 pts

1498 pts

Emperors Champion Leads one of the squads in the rhino, Chaplain leads the squad in the LRC.

I plan to shoot the LRC straight down the middle of the table, probably attracting many many shots. This allows the rhinos to quietly go up together up a flank, pop smoke, then disembark to unleash templar-death. The bike squadron will be zipping around the board the entire time, destroying any tanks that happen to be in its way. The land speeders will do the same, killing both infantry and light vehicles alike.

What do you think of this plan?

I like the list, seems very well put together and thought out. Some things that I should point out, though:

Reclusiarchs don't really need Powerfists, since it negates their high Initiative and makes an already expensive HQ more expensive. He should be fine with just the Crozius.

I like the addition of the Crusader, its a sweet model and pretty damn good even if it does get blown to peices most of the time. Blessed Hull IMO is too expensive to be of any use, and if you don't fight Eldar its a complete waste.

Your going to have trouble taking out tanks, even with the 3 Melta Bike squad (haven't looked at the BT codex too closely, but is that legal?). Odds are they will die before they could unleash their melta weapons, so you may want to consider replacing them. Possibly another Landspeeder with a Multimelta?

Other than that the list seems fine, and it's good to see some Neophytes even though they aren't that good. I also like the quote at the beginning, adds a nice touch to the presentation* . And welcome to the Tau Online forums, everyone here will be able to help with any questions that you may have.

Well the reason I have the bikes in there for quite a simple reason. I have never seen them used... who knows what they are capable of? Besides three meltas (and yes that is legal >), is simply too good to pass up IMO. What I could do though, is take out the bike w/o the melta, then take away the blessed armour from the LRC (I tottaly agree with you on this one... fluff is oh so distracting), then take away teh powerfist from teh chappy and give him a bolt pistol(The PF chap model was the only one at the store..., that gives me 83 points to spend on whatever I want.... say maybe... another land speeder w/ assault cannon?

New Revised list

HQ
Emperors Champion - 125
Suffer Not the Unclean to Live
Crusader Seals
Black Sword
Armour of Faith

Crusader Squad - 205
7 Initiates
2 Neophytes
BP/PF
Rhino

Extra Armour

Bike Squadron - 126
3 Bikers

Im going to keep the bikes... for now. If i dont like them i can just replace them w/ 2 LS with Multi-meltas.

By the authority of the All Mighty Emperor I command Thee to use Thine bikes in combat!
I always use bikes. Rush forward and paste your opponents armor in round 2-3.
I always use a combination of 1 attack bike with multimelta and 3 regular bikes with meltas. If they don't make it close enough
to make pain, they wold have been soaking up enough of your opponents firepower to be worth it anyway.

I like you list, very mobile. I use similar lists in my space wolf army. I do like to shoot, and I think you should be prepared to do a little shooting.

IF it was my army list, I would drop one Initiate from the third crusader set up, and give both units Meltaguns so they can charge. Or Plasma if you think you can make the saves.

For your list, Meltaguns would do good, can shoot then assault.
