With Valrak confirming the Custodes Lt on his stream, (or confirming a rumour), I wonder whether it's possible we'll be seeing the other option as well. I see no reason why a Lt or a Shield Captain couldn't have the option to be armed with an adrastus bolt calibre. Thoughts?

I literally can't imagine a reason for a custodes lt. How useless.

Not if Trajann is going to lose his re-roll wounds of 1.

Im mostly hoping the person misidentified a Sisters of Silence HQ that would be actually useful. 

If it is a rando Custode its unlikely it will have a FW exclusive weapon, though some fancy ranged weapon might be an option!

I think the main point is always the same: cheaper HQ option.
Although I wonder how much cheaper he could actually be...

I wonder what role a cheaper HQ fills. I've never seen people take barebones shield captains at any point anyways, they always layer things on. Since shield captains are generally great besides the crap random damage in cc.

In fact shield captains have only gotten more valuable since war of spider. I enjoy running a dreadhost axe wielding psycho captain that teleports in for pure slaughter in back lines.

Maybe they will do the same as with SoB did with canoness and limit the shield Captain to 1 per formation.  Or go down the GK route and limit them to 1 per subfaction no matter what formation.


Dyspraxic & Dyslexic  - So I might not write/explain what I think I have as clearly as intended to.... 

 

I'm confused... what side of the fence am I on???
