Default size of the Black Templars

How big is the whole Black Templar Chapter? I read somewhere that they overly exceeded the codex:Astartes

The Black Templar overall force strength is unknown. It's speculated in their codex that they could have 3-4,000 marines in their ranks, but it's likely only the High Marshal knows.

Huh because the Black Templars are going on a big crusade right? So I want to make a chapter that differs from them. Called the Hospitaliers. It goes on a crusade with the templars but instead of conquering another planet after a succesful crusade they fortify the conquered planets to make sure no one recaptures them. Their paint scheme would be the exact opposite of the Templars.

The general consensus is that they're bigger than the other Chapters. Big enough to attract the attention of the Inquisition at least. Possibly even approaching Legion size.

As such it'll be a bit un-fluffy to make a custom chapter of a similar size...how would such a legion slip under the radar? The Inquisition sees everything.

Larger than some of the Legions. Currently it is supposed to be about 6000 strong if I remember correctly from my codex.

Of course not, but just like the Iron Hands, you men in Black kill things so very well and serve the Imperium unswervingly, so the Inquisition turns a blind eye.

And 'swear' is spelt thusly.

From what ive calculated the BT's chapter is between 4,000 and 6,000 marines strong, but from all the info Ive gathered the space Wolves range closer to 12,000 marines.
