Fairly new Black Templar here. I've decided to start up a thread here that will be dedicated to my crusade. I'm not exactly new to the hobby, but have been on hiatus for a very long time and just finally gotten back to it, so I might as well just be new alltogether.
The idea was that I will post images, fluff, army lists and maybe battle reports of my crusade in this thread as time permits, though as you'll find the thread is mostly just a painting log.
The crusade currently roughly consists of 100 power armored initiates, 20 Neophytes, 30 Swordbrethren Terminators, 20 swordbrethren, 2 Sicaran Battle Tanks, 2 spartan Assault Tanks, 1 Land Raiders Achilles, 6 Contemptor Dreadnoughts, 1 Deredeo Dreadnought, 1 Leviathan Dreadnought, Some assorted HQ units, a Fire Raptor Gunship and one Glaive Super Heavy Tank.
The Camdoran Sector
The Camdoran sector (Camdorea) lies on the southern reaches of Segmentum Tempestus and on the very border of the Imperium of Man. Owing to its remote location, being close to the very edge of the galaxy, it is highly militarized.
Camdor - Site of the Chapter Keep erected by the original crusade, Camdor has also served as a source of recruits for the Black Templars. Much of the land mass on Camdor is lush forest, with a large majority of the planet covered by water, causing frequent tropical storms. Brutal weather breeds a hardy populous, and a distinct warrior culture creates fine fighters. Population: 750 million. The black Chapter Keep of the Templars is situated atop a mountain peak overlooking the planets only city, High Camdor.
Vectus - Hive world, population, 72 Billion, home to no less than 4 billion Guardsmen, the majority of the non-military population work the various manufactorums to provide weaponry, armour and vehicles to the Imperial Guard stationed here. As well as producing most the various goods required by any sector. An Imperial Fleet battlegroup is stationed here on permanent basis.
Egreria - Agri-world that feeds the sector, entire population works on producing food. Population, 925,000
Tulkew - Forge world, provides the Black Templar with their specialist weapons of war, and home to the titan legions "Fury of Mankind" and "Shield of Camderea". As expected,the population primarily works in the manufactorums under the ever-watchful eyes of the Mechanicus. Population: 6.5 billion
The Camdoran Crusade
The Camdoran crusade was formed to quell increasing ork activity that had begun to pose a threat to the Imperial manufacturing assets located within the Camdoran sector as well as neighboring sectors. Originally a relatively small crusade, it was later expanded upon and given additional assets when a Tyranid splinter fleet (Codename: Hive Fleet Fafnir) was discovered.
At its largest, the crusade was comprised of 3 fighting companies as well as the marshal’s household, commanding about 500 Black Templars.
