Hi guys.
Just getting back into things. Have made a couple of lists with various armies to have a bit of a play around with.
Trying to make 750pt lists so I can build up from there.
Here’s what I’ve come up with for Custodes,

Any thoughts welcome.

+Vanguard detachment+

Shield cap in TA, axe, misericordia- 148
Vexilus Praetor in TA, misericordia, magnifica. 134
3 Allarus Custodians w/ axe and balistus-252
Contemptor dread w/ kheres assault cannon-197


Had thought about putting the lot in DS, then read the new beta DS rules which screws with that slightly, so might just slog the lot and maybe use the strategem to split the terminators into individual model units.

Primus Illic Permaneo Sicco - First In, Last Out - Space Sharks VIth Company
Children Of Monatoa, There is Blood in the Water! - Sergeant Galean 1st Company Sergeant Siege of Tranquility Badab War 907.M41
Space Sharks Record Wins 1
Draws 1 Losses 3

Per Suus Cruor Nos Vadum Exsisto Laurifer - By His Blood We Shall Be Victorious. Flesh Eaters IVth Company
Flesh Eaters Record. Wins 11 Draws 5 Losses 7

It’s really hard to make a functional list at that point level. That being said as much as I love my Allarus, you might be asking a lot of them considering the points they are using in your small list.

That aside I will say Custodes really rely heavily on the Strategems to stay effective. I’d really try to find a way to get more than 4 in your games. If you can’t, don’t sweat it. Just realize with greater Strategem flexibility, the army gets a lot better.
