So the first time I ever saw 40K being played was a long time ago and I've always been interested in it. I've seen friends play and I actually attended a tournament at my local hobby store this past weekend to watch some of the armies play, but I've always said that if I ever started playing I wanted to play the Black Templars. Their history and method of playing has always appealed to me, albeit I've seen people say its great and you can decimate and also that you can be destroyed easily yourself. So to begin, I've gotten my hands on the 7th Edition Codex and skimmed through it a bit, but to start and from doing some research, it seems that my first Crusader Squad that I want to make should be roughly 15 BT (1 SB, and a decent combo of Initiates and their Neophytes to soak up damage, if I wanted it to be even I'd say 7 Initiates and 7 Neophytes, but it seems better to go more Initiates) which will take full advantage of an LRC's max capacity of 15 and its a dedicated transport. Also an Emperor's Champion, though I hear that Grimaldus is also very advantageous. My biggest thing to even get started is this. How do I build this squad? I can't seem to find anything and since there is no specific BT basic squads, it seems that I just need to buy a normal Space Marine Squad and Space Marine Scouts to make the Initiates and Neophytes and then the BT upgrade/conversion kit from what I've seen from other newbies wanting to make a crusader squad. Being that they are close combat, it seems that you want the SB to have a power sword and multi-melta and then each Initiate have a sword and bolter and then same thing for the Neophytes and then taking advantage of having an Initiate take a Special Weapon and an Initiate taking a Heavy Weapon. Basically I'm stuck here because I don't actually know where to start. No one at the tournament was playing Black Templar, but I think the owner does. Being the owner, I don't know if he actually has the time to truly sit down with me and explain how to build/play this army. So I'm looking for any information on how to really begin to make my first squad. I'm not looking at going directly towards an 1850 army anytime soon as that will take a lot of time and money to build to that so I'm in no rush.
