I'd wait for a few months untill the Codex: Black Templars is released. If you make an army now you'll only kick yourself for paying for an army that will be replaced with newer models and extra rules.

i agree wait till the new one is out and then decide on an army to get. but personally ive always gone for a wide range of weaponry myself. This allows the army to be flexable and combat any force it encounters.

No you want lightning claws so you can kill enemys before powerfists and the like can insta kill you.

Buy the veteren lightning claw sprue for the extra one!

Dont buy the normal tatical squad buy the space wolves blood claws so that you get the ccws. Just dont use the space wolves bits like the heads!
Remember to get some scouts!

Black Templar weapons

It really depends on who you are fighting and what Vows you take.

If you are playing against other marines, You might as well as go for that powerfist and knock em out for the count if you take the Vow:* Suffer Not The Unclean To Live, you are going to be striking at -1 of your initiative.

For anyone else, you can take normal CC weapons because that same rule lets you add +1 to their dice roll to wound.

The other thing is you only get one Special weapon per unit so you might as well make it count PF. As far as Lighting Claws, I don't think they are allowed unless it is in the FAQ.

I would also wait til the Codex comes out. Also the SW BLood Claw box (like HalfLife said) is great for all those Nice Assault weapons.
