Default Starting a Black Templars Army

Hey I am starting Black Templars, and I need advice on what to get. So far all i have is a squad of Initiates. What would anyone here suggest getting next?

Black Templar Emperors Champion IS A MUST. Then maybe an assualt squad and predator ahnihilator ... then more initiates ... then sword brethrens ... then Land raider Crusader.

Well maybe not in that order but some stuff that would be good for BT armies.

I agree as well ;D, though you will need butt loads of rhinos

Well, I would say that you don&#39;t need an Emperor&#39;s Champion right away. First off, buy more Initiates, they&#39;re your bread-and-butter figures. Design yourelf a 400 point combat patrol list, then buy what you need for it (probably more Initiates). Game with it for a little while, then try adding a cheap HQ (chappy or commander). Again, game with it for a bit to get the feel of it. Then you could try for a cheap vehicle, like a bare-bones Dreadnought or Predator Destructor, or just more Initiates (or some Neophytes). Then, once you&#39;re ready to try for 750 points, buy/convert an Emperor&#39;s Champion. From there, its basically up to you.

You dont really need a LRC. Waste of points. For the 250 in points you can get another entire 10 squad of initate space marines. Max out on tactical squads, and get in close combat. I&#39;ve not been beaten by raptors yet. Take a chaplain on a bike and you can have 3 initates with power weapons on their bikes.

Helbrecht has many more attacks than that!

Ok base he has 4 attacks, then he charges for +1, then he rolls the d3, so at maximum hye has 8 attacks

One is not many more. And that&#39;s only on the charge - he may not get the charge.

As for Preferred Enemy, it&#39;s not that it doesn&#39;t work on special characters. It does not work on Monstrous Creatures, vehicles without a WS, and independent characters.
