Default When will GW release Black Templar units (that don't have to be upgraded)

Space Wolves have the option to buy a battle force and even buy models that are already Space Wolves. Black Templars only have 1 unit that is already BT.

Also, how many troops can be converted with 1 BT chapter upgrade?

I doubt they will. Everything thats been announced has been released. You notice there are no Blood Angel or Dark Angel Battleforces. Your just going to have to do with what you get.

It greatly depends on how you use it. You could seriously deck out a handful of models or you could sparcely touch up quite a few. It gives you a nice assortment of weapons, body parts and other little bits to give quite a few marines a nice BT look. But not all in a squad have to be given something BT looking.

You also get tank upgrade parts.

GW did:

BT Battleforce
BT Rhino
BT Crusader Squad
BT Command Squad
BT Assault Squad
Sword Bretheren box and blisters
2 special characters
1 limited edition character
(anything else I missed)

and you can now get the upgrade sprue box.

that's more than most chapters will ever get.

You act if thats a good thing. GW released the true BT models at normal price, then realized they could make more money. So they stopped making the models and instead charged you a similair price for just the bits without the actual troops. I do think BT got a bit gyped on the model front.

Still, I think its a matter of how many box sets they can put out. I mean seriously, BT don't have any units space wolves or codex marines cant have, so why put out yet another battleforce of essenstially the same army? If you want to be logical, the BT do have a battleforce box. You buy the regular marine box and then the upgrade boxes.

Actually, GW always planned, and always told everyone, that the BT boxes would be a limited edition thing.

they said that they were going to do the same thing for other chapters in the future- imagine how much shelf space it would take up if they did that for DA, BA, SW and anyone else, and kept them all on the shelves at the same time?

It's something GW learned from the 13th Co boxes

Yeah, it sucks if you didn't get hold of them in time, but you can't blame GW for something that they said they'd be doing right from the beginning. At least there are BT upgrade sprues.
