Custodes Beta Rules Review: Part 4- LoW, Dedicated Transport and Closing Thoughts

Over the next few days I will be breaking down the Adeptus Custodes Beta Rules for Warhammer 40k that were released last month. You can download them here (for free) if you haven't had the chance to check them out yet.Part Four below goes into the Lord of War and Dedicated Transport, as well as closing thoughts on the Beta rules.Part One covered the Elites Choices. Part Two covered Fast Attacks. Part Three discussed the Heavy Support Choices.Coronus Grav-CarrierWell for starters, it is better than the Land Raider for what it does (Deliver infantry to the enemy lines), though not as tough. But you don’t need it to be as tough (besides it has that 2” buffer from Gravitic Backwash). You need it to live into turn 2 or 3 and deliver its cargo. And this transport can and will do that.What makes it better?  Simple the fact it is cheaper and faster. Sure the Land Raider is still by far deadlier. But the point of these vehicles is to transport something even deadlier inside. And seeing how the Coro

Custodes Beta Rules Review: Part 3- The Heavy Support

Part Four will go into their Lord of War and Dedicated transport, as well as closing thoughts on the Beta rules.Caladius Grav TankThis is another great choice in the Beta IMO. Last time I did a lot of comparison of it to the Pallas Grav-Attack, and really it just out shines the Pallas in every way. Yes it is twice the points, but it outshines TWO Pallas at the same points cost. It has one more T,  nearly double the range with the Accelerator Cannon, more firepower at a higher quality, and degrades at essentially the same point you would lose one complete Pallas (7 T7 wounds vice 8 T6 wounds).To me the no brainer load out is the Twin Iliastus Accelerator

If you liked playing Jetbikes, they are an auto-include IMO. Replace 3 of your Dawneagles with these Gyrfalcons (the actual name of the bikes them selves. The unit is Agamatus where the ones in the Codex are Vertus Praetors) and you are set.These guys bring some potent anti-vehicle potential to the list with their Twin-Las Pulsars. This is the standout weapon, though it pushes each bike up to the 120 point range. But that is fine IMO for what you are getting. The S8 is a key feature here,

Custodes Beta Rules Review: Part 1- The Elites

Over the next few days I will be breaking down the Adeptus Custodes Beta Rules for Warhammer 40k that were released last month. You can download them here (for free) if you haven't had the chance to check them out yet.Part One below will discuss the Elites Choices.Part Two will be about the Fast Attack. Part Three will cover Heavy Support. Part Four will go into their Lord of War and Dedicated transport, as well as closing thoughts on the Beta rules.Contemptor-Achillus DreadnoughtOther than the fact I think this is the cooler looking for the two Custodes Contemptors, I prefer the Achillus on paper to the Galatus (we will get to him next). The Dreadspear is just a beast of a weapon, and at the cost of 1CP, you can get this guy  DS in imminent threat range. Have him deep strike with some terminators or land near some bikes, and your opponent will have a hard time what to prioritize if you fail to make the charge out of DS. But burning a CP on rerolls to ensure that charge is worth it, because the dreadspea

Showcase: Adeptus Custodes Vertus Praetors by Rich

Hi all, Rich here and I’m back again with some more shiny gold things. I have a bit of a reputation amongst my friends for my love of shiny things so the Custodes were a clear choice for me when they arrived in 40k. I plan to have a small detachment of them so they can fight alongside my Raven Guard. From the games I have played with them so far the Vertus Praetors are absolute killing machines and I’m beginning to wish that I had just made a detachment of Custodes solely on the Dawn Eagle jet bikes! Without further ado here is my take on the Adeptus Custodes Vertus Praetors.

Showcase: Imperial Knight Adeptus Custodes

Hi all! Just wanted to let you know that I finished my Imperial Knight of the Adeptus Custodes. This is the fourth Knight I painted beside the ones for the Mechanicum and the Ministorum. For the left arm weapon conversion (I imagine some kind of fusion weapon) I used some bits from the Onager Dunecrawler and the Kataphron Breachers. What do you think? Leave a comment or reaction...
