Before I got into 40K whole hog, I always found it ironic that it was the "Black" Templars, since the color of the Knights Templarwas red. The color of the Knights Hospitaler were black.

Needless to say I contemplated starting a chapter called the "RedHospitalers" just for the inside history jpoke.

Of course that all fell apart when I fdound I couldn't paint red worth a damn...

the other option is to field a vanilla codex army. just rename your army the dark templars or some such nonsense! then you get to use the lovely vanguard jump marines too...
I assume that would be tricky if you have a load of initiates in your squads.

Makes me glad Im using vanilla codex and I get to use my lovely ironclad dropodosaurus

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Not so much an Ironclad screwup as a noob screwup.

YOU assumed that the BT could take them. That's YOUR screwup.
Next time, read the codex before buying models if you want your army to use them.

Sorry, no sympathy here (and no empathy either).

I play SM, Eldar, DH and Guard. I also have a Tau skyray, Necron Monolith, Dark Eldar raider, and ork trukk. These models were bought purely because I wanted the models, not because I 'thought' I might be able to use them in the above armies.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
