Ok I might start them then, are they fun to play with? I've mainly played traditional space marines in the past, before the primaris stuff happened, I like tough hard to kill things, I had a go at skitarii but I just kept getting owned with them.

UK GT was the only time he’s run all bikes, normally he uses a battalion for his Custodes. :)

  

I think that’s great. I think the last time I actually saw him play Custodes he was playing Reece’s Space Marines (Minotaurs?) and he had lost. That’s how I play them, for better or worse with Guardians. It just feels a little more... regal to me and more committed, not just an escort of some other Force.

AdMech is in a really tough spot right now. Truly hard to kill with a hint of forgiveness is Death Guard or Nurgle Daemons. The Custodes are tough, but you’re paying for it.

I think they are fun to play with but again you have to happy participating in certain phases of the game. Obviously you won’t be playing a vehicle gunline, or a Psychic army. You can always ally if you find you’d like to expand the scope of the army.

I think it’s safe to say Custodes were designed to be an ally since they have a Vexilla that provides 5++ to all Imperial units versus enemy shooting. Hopefully FW will eventually release some official rules then they’ll be better suited as a single faction.

Custodes, Knights, Inquisition, Assassins, SoS. Basically, all the agents. Putting 'em all together and supplement them with a main force like IG. Looks baller and, AC with IG in particular, plays well ;)

Be excellent to one another, and lean on your brothers and sisters when your patience grows slim

Forgeworld IA is due in Q3 so hopefully won't be long, things I'm hoping for

Caestus fist to be fixed points wise and be more damage better AP.
Caladius to come down a little in points.
Achillus needs more attacks, impaling lunge needs a buff and AP-4 on the melee attack.
Saggitarium guard with something like assault 3 -2 D2 would be really good and maybe 2 firing modes.
Melta spears

I always run at least a batallion with my Custodes, I'm heartily against CP batteries. Someone above said about gaming in a casual environment and he was right, every unit in the codex can be used in that way, there are no lame ducks except maybe the venerable contemptor and land raider (so expensive/will die fast). I happen to really like wardens, they can skirt under the radar a bit better than your terms as everyone :cusss a chicken when the terms arrive, but they still drop a ton of hurt. I'm facing Scions and a knight later so I will report back how it goes.

As promised here is a quick run down

Custodes
Shield captain on bike: HB, Auric Aquillas, radiant mantle, Victor of the blood games
Shocked captain: castellan axe

3 squads of: 3 guard with spear and 1 shield

Vexillus praetor magnifica
Vexilla in alarus imperius

2 x 3 vertus praetor

Tempestus Scions

Tempestor prime X2 CP farm WT & relic

2 x 5 Scions with 2 volley guns
1 X 5 with 2 plasma
1 X 5 with 2 grenade

1 command squad 4 melta
1 command squad 4 plasma

2 taurox with volley guns/ Gatling guns
1 taurox with volley/battle cannon

Valkyrie
3 bullgryns

Vindicare assassin

Knight crusader
Stormspear, Gatling, thermal.

We played sealed orders on frontline assault map

Custodes went duration deployed everything in a bubble and advanced and moved up to the central terrain piece, only my warlord was out to the right and he advanced into an objective to start a defend.

Took 4 wounds from the Valkyrie and scored no points.

Scions turn 1, Valkyrie flew forward and dropped off the 3 bullgryns for a move and charge into one of my bike squads and the knight moved up. Knight killed 2 bikes in the shooting phase. Bullgryns managed to take 2 wounds off a bike before they were mercilessly dispatched.

Custodes turn 2 and I moved a squad and the last biker towards the knight and the captain on foot, then deepstriked the squad I put in teleport and the termie with vexilla imperius. After charges I had a 4 man squad, the bike and the captain in combat with the knight, the squad were the only ones in range of the +1 attack bubble. I used piercing strike to add 1 to my wound rolls on the spears and when that squad was done the knight had 6 wounds left. Between the bike and the captain I finished it off and it blew up doing some wounds all round and 6 to the squad. I also killed the Valkyrie in combat with the other squad.

The game went on for 6 turns but ended 27 points to 13 in favour of the Custodes.

Turns out we can kill knights. 😁

Played a smaller game against a Grey Knights player. Tabled him by 3, didn't lose a model. The dice were terrible for him and great for me.

Pieces of paper for impassable terrain? My main problem with all of this is it really takes away from the game. A giant sheet of white paper on the table sort of breaks the theme of tiny fake armies running around tiny fake locales.


Real men play Adepta Sororitas!
