I have been Brainstorming the points cost of an Aquilla Commander to use with my Custodes, since we don't have a proper Custodes HQ for 40k.

Considering that a Shield Captain is 60 points, I thought of pricing the Aquilla Commander at 125.
It's 65 points just for an +1 wound, IC rule and an Iron Halo.

I would like opinions and suggestions.

I think people are thinking of them being under costed because of how messed up points are. Custodes and terminators have a similiar pricing, but Custodes are infinitely better. You could compare it to 190 point Shield Captain from 30k, which has far more special rules, including Grenades. They dont have EW or stock invuln and AP2, but have move through cover and a bunch of other goodies. I think the Shield Captain for 40k would be good at 120-160 points. If you give him an Iron Halo, the 160 would be perfectly fair.

Just like Custodes are literally +1 to Space Marines, I would imagine a Custodes Officer is +1 to a SM Captain

 

180pts

WS7 BS6 S5 T5 W4 I6 Ld 10 Sv2+

 

Guardian Spear

Power Knife

Iron Halo

Frag/Krak

 

Special Rules: 

Authority of the Throne: All Forces of the Imperium within 12" auto-regroup if falling back around him. 

 

Captain of the Guard: all Custodes models within 12" gain Move Through Cover and can Run + Shoot or Shoot + Run, or Run + Charge in the same Turn. 

 

 

 

<shrug> just a thought. It's a little ridiculous, but Custodes are kinda of ridiculous to begin with :)

I'm going for this. Sounds fun. A beatstick character. Seems fitting for a Custodes leader. A warrior not a soldier.
