My local gaming group is starting a 500pts combat patrol campaign and I though it would be fun to run Custodes.

Restrictions include nothing over T7 and nothing over 12W.

I was thinking
Shield Captain
4 Custodes (3 spear, 1 Sword and board)
3 Sagittarum

Any ideas?

I might include some Venatari but I’d need to buy some first

Cheers

Bikes for days. You'll be hated by everyone. 3 Bike Captains or bust.

It might be worth thinking about a Captain, Sagittarum and some Allarus Terminators.

You’d get one less model over all but the Allarus have some ok shooting and their ability to use strats to target characters could be invaluable in such small games as most forces will probably only have 1 or 2 HQs. Knocking out a marine captain will significantly lessen the output from the marine squads for example.

I hàve Aquilon Terminators, my Custodes are primarily a HH army. Although I may buy some Allarus at some point.

0-1 HQ so now chance of three bike captains ;-)

What are all the restrictions?

Interested as I used to play a lot of 400pts Combat Patrol in school back in 4th, and would be cool to see your take on it in 8th.

I believe the 4th edition restrictions were:
No more than 2 wounds
No 2+ Saves
No Invunerable Save (not so sure on this)
Armour Value could not exceed 33 total for all three sides.

Obviously that would make Custode unplayable in its current state, so interested to see where you took it.

Torch, the restrictions are:

Nothing over T7
Nothing over 12W
0-1 HQ
1-3 Troops
0-2 Elites
0-2 Fast attack
0 Heavy
0-1 Flyers

I’ll be honest I had nothing to do with the writing, I’m just taking part. I’m looking forward to it though.

Can you think of a better 500pt gun line than a SC with an axe, and all Sag guard?

Maybe consider giving the sag daggers? I bet they're awesome in 500 pointers, especially with the disintegration profile.

I'd take this

Shield Captain w/Castellan Axe

4x Custodian Guard w/Guardian Spear

2x Pallas Grav Attack

I think this is as varied as you can get at this point level.

If you were set on Sag Guard you could drop the Shield Captains Axe and take a spear. This would allow you to take 4 Sag Guard.

However, I think the Pallas movement and shooting will be more than enough at 500pts. The Spear Custodes can huddle around the Captain while the Pallas do the objective grabbing and shooting. 16" movement and no penalty to hit will be mad good at 500pts.

Thanks for all the advice guys.

Couple of games last night one with the original list concept.

Shield Captain with axe
4 Custodes (3 spear, 1 Sword and board)
3 Sagittarius Guard
Misericordia to make up to 500

Facing space wolves

Wolf lord
2 units of 10 Primaris things
5 fenris wolves
Invictor Tactical war suit.

The war suit was horrific. The fist wounding on twos and then flat 3 damage was murder for the Custodes, wiping out the unit of 4 in the first turn in one round of combat.

I did kill the wolf lord with the Shield Captain but the unit of the match was definitely the Sagittarium. They did sterling work in killing the war suit, the wolves and most of the Primaris. Lost on victory points though.

Second game against the same army, I swapped out the Sagittarium for an Achillus. The two big guys wiped each other out in combat, the war suit got the charge and went first and did quite a bit of damage. The return attacks killed it then it blew up and took the Achillus with it.

This one was a win after I pretty much tabled the guy and romped home in victory points claiming most of the objectives.

We’ll see what happens next time and I might play with the build again.

This is my current pool of models to choose from

What missions were you playing at 500pts?

There was one where the objective markers moved around (air drop?) And one with 3 objectives, one I the centre and one in each deployment zone.
