Afternoon all,

 

I've been trying out a few different lists with varying success, but I'm looking for something good for proper organised play.

 

These are the models I have:

 

HQ

1x Shield Captain in Allarus Terminator Armour - Castellan Axe

1x Shield Captain - Castellan Axe

1x Shield Captain - Stormshield + Sentinel Blade

3x Shield Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike (any weapons)

1x General Trajaan Valoris

 

TROOP

9x Custodian Guard - Guardian Spear

3x Custodian Guard - Stormshield + Sentinel blade

 

ELITE

1x Vexillus Praetor in Allarus Terminator Armour

1x Vexillus Praetor - Stormshield

1x Vexillus Praetor - Guardian Spear

4x Allarus Custodian - Castellan Axe

3x Warden - Castellan Axe

1x Venerable Contemptor Dreadnought (magnetised) - Kheres Assault Canon/Heavy Melta

 

FAST ATTACK

9x Vertus Praetor (any weapons)

 

Heavy Support

1x Venerable Land Raider

 

IG HQ

1x Lord Commissar

3x Primaris Psyker

 

IG Elite

1x Techpriest Enginseer

 

IG Lord of War

1x Baneblade (magnetised) - typically played as a Shadowsword with 2 Sponsons - 2x Las 2x Twin Heavy Bolter. Can be switched to any other type.

Currently my two options are below. My two options are Guard + Bikes for a nice spread of threat, although I'm concerned about vehicles as my meta is full of them (hence the salvo launchers), or Bikes + Shadowsword with support which deals with vehicles no problem, but sinks a lot of points into very few targets.

I like both. I'm all for pure Custodes so I like the first one from that perspective, but I think the second one is very dangerous. You can protect the shadowsword with your 2 psychic powers am it takes the heat off your bikes. Also there's a good chance it will blow up your enemies most dangerous threat, unless you are playing against Eldar, but enough of that.

Only issue is you only have 5 CP's in the second one.

Do you need the Alarus praetor? I don't see him being a that useful as you can't bring him in turn one once your bikes are out of the deployment zone, and if you start him on the board he's been left behind instantly. If you want to run the magnifica id go as cheap as possible with the regular vexillus praetor.

Does your commissar need the powerfist and plasma and relic? Could scrape a few more points off there too, not sure where else you'd spend them though, and it's costing you a command point you don't really have spare.

Not really sure what else to spend the points on if I changed the comissar's gear tbh. I hadn't noticed the extra relic, must have been a mistake. The praetor just seems vaguely useful to drop in turn 2 to protect what bikes are left. He also has tonnes of wounds.

After weeks of back and forth between games and armies, I've settled on the below list. I don't particularly like it but its the best one using the units I have and it does fairly well against everything.
 
I have purchased Bobby G, Knight Commander Pask in a Plasma Executioner and three Leman Russ Battle Tanks. Not sure how or if I'll fit them in with Custodes, but the Shadowsword took a back seat too. Maybe I'll just make a separate Armoured Company Astra Militarum Army.
