Not getting too excited (okay, I am actually) but could this be a peek at some new info / models for the Custodes ?

It's been, what, six months since the last big Sigmarine release? So we're about due for them getting rammed down our throats again.

 

Could be Valoris though, or even both.

AoS will focus on death I reckon. We might be in for some Custodes.

Death as in Nurgle for AoS? Would make sense for a new batch of Sigmarines^^

I want it to be Custodes, but it’ll probably be Sigmarines.
I hope I’m wrong tho.

I don't follow the GW media stuff too much ... but are Sigmarines always referred to as warriors in gold the way Custodes are? Seems to me that you see a fair bit of non-gold Sigmarines. The one and only Age of Sigmar book I own has a kind of dark turquoise colour scheme featured on the front cover. So I'm leaning towards "a whole lot of gold" being Custodes, especially since it fits with the truly break-neck speed of codex releases this edition.

I don't know, that there were any info of stand alone custodes codex, So Maby we will see "imperium agents" codex with inq, custodes, sos And So on. It is Also Nice counter for chaos codex (the best would be grey knights, but They already have codex), And that early release might be true, because we didn't have any changes in CA, same as deamons

A trio box.
Dorn, Valoris, and the sisters of Silence HQ.
Or Maybe Valoris and some terminators and a transport and a dread?

According to Silentz on DakkaDakka, his store manager thinks there could be a jetbike for the Custodes.

 

For what it's worth (add salt to your liking), my own store manager mentioned something similar : a future

Custodes release with Terminators and a jetbike.

 

We'll know soon enough, I guess...

The eagle head rumour pic looks like the eagle on a Custodes jetbike artwork.

I would love to see more plastic custodes, but would GW release plastic terminators and jet bikes this close to the FW resin versions?

One possibility, when going along with the alleged issues FW is having currently with their stuff (The 3d printer, etc) is maybe the popularity of Custodes surpassed their ability to keep up with demand and thus they're bringing it over to 40k?

 

But seems we'll see next month at least.

To add some credance.. On Facebook the other day one of the WHC guys said he was starting an army of Custodes because he was so excited for Valoris. Now, there isn't too much to an "Army" of Custodes right now is there? Hopefully his words have meaning....

 

Interesting.

 

Makes me wary to buy anything at the moment! I never know if I want to expand a current army, start a new one or wait for what's next!!!

I firmly believe that the eagle head rumour engine is from a jetbike.
Also one of the Recent ones, the hair is from terminators. It will be so.

This months' White Dwarf also has some custodes armies that belong to the GW-crew. My hype is intensifying!

My bet is a new Contemptor for the Custodes...
They already have access to the Contemptor but that BaC modell is just dull.
Considering jetbikes... dunno, I can't stand GW releasing new jetbikes while FW has them.
I ordered my FW Custodes stuff and after spotting a miscast I was promised spare parts from their stockpile, so I doubt the point that FW is not able to keep up with their demands.
What I could see are lesser versions of the Custodes, as in Indomitus TDAs and so on.

The jet-bikes we got are totally different from the old artwork, so there is room for that pattern too :)

 

According to the "Golden Legion" novel, then the Custodes definitely have the Sword & Board Contemptors knocking around plus whatever else I'm forgetting (I think there was TDA) but it doesn't seem like there are Grav tanks left.

From the 2 Wraight books.
They have Terminators, Contemptors, some sort of flyer, I'm pretty sure some kind of grav veichle is mentioned on Emperor's legion.
Don't remember jetbike tho.
The eagle teaser looks like it could be from one of them bikes.
I saved up a few quid for this Custodes release. Do not disappoint me GW.

In Emperor's Legion they mention Contemptors with Swords and Shields, a single seater flyer (The Talion) and Terminator armoured Custodians.

I would expect there to be plastic kits for each of the above with this release. As I already own the FW Dreads and Terminators I'm hoping they will be compatible and look similar - but who knows.
There was a chat on a Custodes facebook group a few weeks ago, someone who had been involved in playtesting at GW has apparently seen a couple of new plastic kits, so I'm pretty confident Custodes are getting something soon.

I wonder whether it will be a pure Adeptus Custodes release or will Sisters also join them in the codex? It was interesting that although the Sisters of Silence were in the Emperor's Legion book, there was no mention of any specific units (unlike the Custodians). I remember the Dark Imperium book went out of it's way to mention all the new DeathGuard and Primaris units.

I believe they also mention the Hetaeron Guard (I think these don't leave the Throne room though) and Tribunes in Emperor's Legion, so maybe we will get rules for these units as well?

Ooooo I forgot about the Talion!

 

A Custodes flyer would be awesome. I can't recall, was it more of a Fighter or did it have Transport capacity?

 

It feels weird that we'd see GW do the Terminators or Sword & Shield Dreads with FW already making bloody excellent kits for them - they'd have to be different enough to be necessary IMO. So not "Aquilon pattern" TDA but something new. The current plastic Contemptor is woefully lacking in detail for the Emperor's Best Bois.
