Saw this thread on B&C, and thought I might bring it to you guys.
Primaris and the Black Templars - + Black Templars + - The Bolter and Chainsword
Like Brian Potter in Phoenix Nights* - "I don't know if you've noticed, but I collect Black Templars", or at least have been doing since 3rd; Ive got shit loads of those fanatical bastards!
Up until relatively recently when I became disillusioned (and somewhat distracted by Iron Warriors), I was still cracking out crusader squads and land raider crusaders to kill heretics, burn witches and generally bonk Big-Es enemies on the head... Now I don't know where Helbrecht and the Templarly order stands. Do we like Daddy G, it seems like, as a few on the B&C thread have said - some admech robot turned up, made an alliance with a bunch of stinking xenos and some traitor who claims he isn't, resurrected Girlyman and then pulled some fancy new marines out of his backside he's been secretly working on since the Heresy.
Is he saying that Big-E didn't do his best work; or GodEmps forbid, is he saying that he's better than Big-E? Because that shit just is NOT going to fly with Grimaldus and the rest of the guys.
It seems that all the chapters have simply gone along with this plan of the New Imperium, but we heard all that before with the Imperium Secundus. I saw SoH and his idea with the new marines, and I have to say (regardless of aestetic etc) they have sort of been shoehorned in there with no-one paying much attention to where the hell they came from, and WHY.
* Probably a reference only the UK audience will get, but everyone should g-search it for a laugh.
