Default Black Templars: Castellen, Marshel, or Champ?

What should I use for an HQ unit? :-\

The Emperors Champion is obligatory to take in armies over 750 points and serves quite well as a Combat HQ.
For a supporting HQ, I would recommend a simple Marshal with a Bolt Pistol and Power Weapon/Fist, whichever suiting your taste.
Keep him cheap.

Cheers

The marshal is very important in any black templar army. Because of their special rules they must take a morale test every time they take a shooting casualty. Having a LD 10 across the board is vital in this case.

The chaplain can provide a very nice boost to a large squad (like a maxed out crusader squad!) especially with some cenobyte servitors, and prevents them from running the wrong direction at an inopportune moment. But for support across the whole army a Marshal is essential.

I second what they said. However I have a question of my own: does the Emperor&#39;s Champion actually count as an HQ selection for purposes of mandatory choices (1 HQ, 2 Troops)?

EDIT: I posted this before I realized Falstead had responded to the other topic where I asked this. Disregard.
