So as far as I can see there isn’t a topic for this. I’ve been out of the loop on Custodes since the FW book dropped and wondered if you guys have had much of a chance to review the new changes.

 

what looks better or worse? Is the book worth buying? I have 2 Telemons, how did they do?

Saggitarum Bolt Guns got 2D and from what I understand Telemons (and all of the dreads) are amazing.

In summary: every fw unit save the tanks saw improvement.

Flamers all 12 inches or more, charging an achillius with two flamers is suicide for many units.





Buckler pistol Venatari got WAY better with the new buckler rules

Sagittarum were mentioned but yes very strong now.

Dreads besides telemon all went down to 9 wounds with no degrading profile. For some reason they still didn't fix the strength on the sword dread...

Telemon and all dreads ignore one point of damage to minimum 1. Telemon and all dreads got more attacks, telemon with fists gets additional attack per fist. So a war of the spider buffed telemon can dish out 7 attacks...yikes.



Ares was buffed a lot. No longer loses firebombs so can drop one every turn. The big gun got blast. Very nice.


Points almost didn't move. Amazing to be honest we and nids won the fw release.

Achilles and Galatus being W9 is pure awesome. Non-degradable profile is just so strong where being even 12 W is a detriment. Cheekily grabbing -1 damage defence is icing on the cak- WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY EVEN GET AN EXTRA ATTACK.
Emperor be praised I'm going to need 5. Of each.
