Legio Custodes Tactica - In Their Fists They Carry Death

A few months ago there was a big set of FAQs for heresy including a Custodes one. You can find it on Warhammer community.
The change he's referring to is the shields now giving +1 to invuln save instead of a re-roll
Yeah I have it but was just wondering what the thinking was behind the Sentinel blade and wondered if I'd missed something. Personally I'm not a fan of the sentinel blade.

Also I've been wondering what's the general consensus on the Orion? I'm thinking of running 1 with valdor 3 heteraon and a dread either galactus or achillus but undecided on those 2 as well.

It is great though I'm wondering if having basically half my force inside of one / as one is maybe to much but maybe that helps make it more balanced.
It's a big LoW. Not much of an opinion to have other than it's great!
I'm thinking something like
3 hetaeron (shields / paragon / melta bombs)
2×3 custodian guard (melta bombs)
2×Coronus (extra armour)
2×3 agmatus jetbikes (adrathic devestators / melta bombs)
Telemon (2×storm cannon)
Putting valdor hetaeron and the galactus in the Orion. So that's like 1430/3000 in reserve in /including the Orion. Admittedly jetbikes are nasty and the telemon and coronus are very hard to bring down.

Saggitarum are AWESOME now with the Assault Heavy Bolters. They tend to be ignored as things like the Telemon, Hetaeron etc are much higher target Priority. 15 Accurate S5 AP4 shots on the move have a lot of use and by the time the opponent realises this, they are in range to unleash the DETH LAZORZ!
Genuinely considering upping my squad of 5 to 10 now for a true anchor unit.

Also at what ratio do you take them in squads?
Posted 23 November 2018 - 04:44 PM
They are always best used enmasse as the S5 is just a little on the low side, even with Instant Death and armourbane.
A scoring troops choice of 5 Guardians with Adrasite spears would be deadly, especially if you can pull off a deep strike into side armour/ something like a Thanatar.
