Im trying to convert the Space Marines in Assault on Black Reach into Black Templars. The Task for in Ultra Marines is 585 points but I can only work out 504 points in Black Templars. What am I missing? :(

black templars have a different codex, therefore some different point costs, so some black templar stuff may be cheaper than vanilla codex

Yeah I noticed that the Captain is about 35 points more than the BT's Castellan. Has anyone got a exact conversion online?

Not legally no. Buy the Codex.

Then why do you need to know? Black Templars and normal Space Marines have different Codexes for a reason, separate points, upgrades etc.


You don't actually need to know.

What Commando_Jim said. There isn't a conversion between codexes because they are completely separate armies. That would be like trying to convert Orks to Grey Knights point-per-point; just doesn't work.

Are you trying to make them Into Black Templars? Because with the Loadout of the Marines in the Black Templars Codex, it comes out to

Marshall with Boltgun and Power sword.-96 points
- Sword Brethren Terminators Command squad. (You can't have a Sergeant in normal Terminator squads as a BT player) Sergeant with Power sword.- 215 points.

Elites: Dreadnought with Close combat weapon and Multimelta-105 points

Troops: (Amusing you want a legal list.)

Five initiates,3 Boltguns One with Flamer, One with Chainsword and bolt pistol- 86 points

Five Initiates,Four Boltguns One with Missile launcher.- 90 points.


Not a very good list Imo, and it's a total of 592 with the wargear that I have listed, which is what is on them.

No problem, although I highly advise against it, it's not a good list at all.

At least it is legal. No other codex can do that with those models. DA and wolves come close enough.
