Default codex question ( more or less)

lets say I want to play black templars or dark angels and those chapters with their own codexes .
Do i need to have both the main space marine codex and the armies' respective codexes?

They are both stand alone codexes.

Having said that are you going to have 2 completely different armies, or are you going to use one army and just use whichever rules you like at the time. Because there are some things that the black templar have that the Dark Angels don't and vice versa....

The new Black Templar codex is stand-alone but the old army list (published in Codex: Armageddon, which has been out-of-print for a while) required Codex: Space Marines to play. Odds are you won't find Codex: Armageddon in stores anymore; you should only be be able to find the Black Templar codex.

Sr. Magnifico is right about Dark Angels, too.

Best of luck,

Well technically, the current Dark Angels codex is stand alone, but the last one required the space marine codex. Neither the armageddon nor the old Dark Angels codex are legal any more. Unless you have some really nice friends who will let you still use the old codex lists.... :
