WIP: Black Templars
I decided to work on my Black Templars again after reading the Fall of Cadia codex. The burst of inspiration from Marshal Amalrich's valiant efforts during the Black Crusade was all I needed.
Marshal Amalrich of the Cruxis Crusade
Below are some standard Tactical Squad/ Crusader Squad marines I am still working on. My earlier Black Templars were all armed with Bolt Pistol and Chainswords. Assault used to be quite feasible a few editions back.
I'll also be planning to paint the Templar cross motif on all the Marines who are wearing their helmets. This is the Cruxis Crusade, or Crusade of the Cross. So this will be their main identifier.
Am painting up enough units for a Battle Demi Company. In the works are also 2 Storm Talons. I had to do some conversion to the cockpit as I lost the plastic canopy cover...sigh..
Well that's all I got for now. Have a great week ahead all!
