How to Play Black Templars

While they’ve the identical versatility that any Space Marine Chapter can deliver to bear, the Black Templars are first, and foremost, a detailed fight oriented pressure. This means fight troops, heroes, dreadnoughts, and transports would be the first place a Black Templar participant seems to begin their pressure. Personally I feel a horde of Troops (someplace round 60) supported by a cache of buffing heroes is nice trying (and decently efficient) place to begin a Black Templar pressure.
