Black Templars

The Black Templars

Space Marines are the most powerful and dreaded off all of the Imperium’s warriors. They are not human at all but superhuman, having been made superior in all respects to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigourous training. Space Marines are organised into small independent armies called Chapters, each of which is responsible for its own recruitment, equipment, organisation and strategy.

One of these Chapters are the Black Templars.

After the great heresy, Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists, resisted attempts to break up his Legion, but when the Fists began to be persecuted as heretics, Dorn relented. To prove his loyalty to the Emperor, the first High Marshal of the Black Templars, Sigismund, assembled a massive war fleet and began the greatest Space Marine crusade in the history of the Imperium. It has lasted for 10.000 years.

The Black Templars art a fleet-based Chapter, with many battle barges, strike cruisers and other craft, such as training vessels and gigantic forgeships. They are rarely assembled as a Chapter but instead are divided into a number of Crusades. each one numbering several hundred Space Marines. Each Crusade is led by a Marshal, while the High Marshal is responsible for monitoring the progress of all the current Crusades.

The Black Templar Chapter has no single home world which they can call their own. Instead, they establish Chapter Keeps on every world which they conquer or reclaim for the Emperor. The main purpose of these Chapter Keeps is to recruit new Space Marines from amongst the finest warriors of the native population. Chapter Keeps also perform an important role as staging posts for mustering the Crusades together.
