The idea is to use the shield custodians as a screening force, behind which characters can advance safely until ready to charge in!

Space wolves patrol:
Smash wolf lord (hammer, jump pack)
5 grey hunters
Murderfang

Custodes patrol:
Jetbike captain (warlord) Misericordia
5 Custodes with sword & board
Pallas
Pallas

Figure that has mobility, smashing power, a bit of shooting and some objective campers!

I like the idea. Curious how this force performs! Bat reps... ? :)
Homebrew Chapter: The Desert Ravens

Not to be confused with the Dessert Ravens, a traitor chapter dedicated solely to pursuing all things covered in an excess of sugar.

A bit delayed due to real life, but ended up using a 1500 point variant of this list in a couple of games at the LGS and ended up 3rd out of 10. ( might have done better but the additions were heavily astra militarum who I included because I’d just finished a Valkyrie conversion and wanted to see it on the table)

Murderfang is a beast. First game (against ad mech) he Advanced safely behind the shield Custodes until a knight Atropos decided to threaten my flank, Murderfang charged in and saved the day getting all 8 attacks successfully through hit and wound rolls (the knight rotated ion shields and saved three of them but 15 wounds took the shine right off him (I’d also been pot shotting with Pallas and had the wolf lord swinging).

After claiming that scalp (and also gunning down some rangers) Murderfang ran back to the center to help the Custodes against the big unit of heavy ad mech robots who the Custodes were struggling to put down (I needed 5+ to damage and was rolling heaps of 1s for damage - and then they were healing). Murderfang rectified the situation in a single turn. Absolute beast!

I like it. I am following a similar idea to screen HQs.

Keep sharing your sagas!

Revised 1000 point list post chapter approved (I can afford bjorn!)

But, also in contention is (by dropping the shield captain’s jetbike and a pack leader powerfist... I could add an iron priest!) (Not having flying melee characters seems risky though)
