So consider this idea.

 

Dreadhost shield host + Venatari + All seeing annihilator on a SC (which now has been changed to work for ranged as well). Just to rephrase what it does - 6's to hit generate an additional hit, but the thing is 6's to hit explode is already baked into the Venatari, essentially exploding twice on top of the original hit on top! On top of this throw a vexilla with a -1 to hit banner, Trajann (for re-rolls 1 to hit and wound) a blob of Sagittarium guard, maybe some aquillon custodians with twin adrathic destructors and you are laughing. 

 

Thoughts?

Cor that's surprisingly shooty for such little numbers on the board!

Only issue is getting the rerolls onto them as Trajann struggles to keep up.

That's the beauty of the idea. This whole idea plays around like a walking castle, with the terminators in deepstrike. Seeing how Trajann already has champion of the imperium anything that charges that blob will also have to deal with Venatari and a Dreadnought counter-punch. You could start the terminators on the board, but you already got a presence in the form of the Sagittarium and the Venatari + maybe a dreadnought. And who said custodes can't be a shooty army now?? :D

Here's the prototype list with this idea in mind:

I do like the list. The best thing about Custodes is even their shooty units beat the fudge out of opponents in melee.

Do you have an idea of which Secondaries you'd select with the list?
