Always loved the look and story of the Black Templars. The other more vibrant armors have a sort of intimidation value, I guess, but nothing would strike fear into an enemy army faster than the sight of unrelenting, stoic, black armored figures marching ever closer.

Very impressive work that definitely shows such strength, determination and ferocity that the "Black Templar" could project upon there very image that even deter or falter the enemies moral to flee from there mere sight of there Midnight Armour.

Yeah they have an emphasis on close combat prowess and honour. As such they can often be seen charging into suicidal situations to avenge fallen comrades, but this does not dispel that such tactics indeed prove effective. Range combat for a Black Templar can prove without a doubt devastating to any enemy they encounter for the instance there righteous anger makes them impulsive and headstrong, due nevertheless a terrifying sight to be hold on the battlefield for they are also quiet known for there discipline Bolter fire that lay waste to any attacker unfortunate enough to be caught in it.
"Of course they’d come to Mordant for the saviors of the galaxy! We’re the hardest GAKKING troopers you’ll find in all the SEGMENTUMS! I’m proud to lead these warriors of the Emperor where ever he needs us to fight. We’ll stand fast against the myriad of foes that batter at the gates of the Imperium. I’ve scoured the mines and shanty-towns for the fiercest low-lives I could find. As I speak to you now, my men are already suffering through the most rigorous boot camp you could imagine. No soldier of the Lucky 13s will be grist for the mill."
