The Might Of Terra Arrives, Adeptus Custodes For Warhammer 40,000

January 22, 2018 by brennon

Both the weekend just went and this coming Saturday signal the addition of new models for the Adeptus Custodes in Warhammer 40,000. Let's take a look at what Games Workshop has shown off...

General Trajann Valoris - Warhammer 40,000

Leading the way we have Captain-General Trajann Valoris here who many will have already seen in the previews. This fellow is now available as the main character worthy of leading your forces off Terra in pursuit of threats to the Imperium, both Xenos and Traitor.

As mentioned before; I do really like the look of the model overall. I think they've struck a good balance between the ornate and the practical (well, as practical as you can get in the grimdark future).

Mighty Bodyguards

Surrounding TrajannΒ Valoris as he makes his strike against the enemy you have the might of the Allarus Custodians.

Allarus Custodians - Warhammer 40,000

Clad in terminator armour and wielding some dangerously powerful weapons they are ruthless in their dogged pursuit of the enemy. This set also allows you to make two different characters instead of the regular Allarus Custodians.

Vexilus Praetor & Shield-Captain in Allarus Terminator Armour

Here you can see the Vexilus Praetor (Left) & Shield-Captain (Bottom) which act as additional leadership options for the force. It's neat seeing how their older armour style reflects that of the Chaos Space Marines, especially the likes of Abaddon The Despoiler (maybe it's the top knots!), acting as a reminder of that terrible period in Warhammer 40,000 history.

What's To Come?

Next weekend also brings some new releases for the Adeptus Custodes with additional support both on foot and in the air. Firstly we have the look at the Vertus Praetors with their shining lances and a prow which is utterly packed with heavy duty weaponry.

These vehicles not only benefit from speed but also weapons which can be used against infantry, vehicles and even flying opponents too. Good luck transporting these fellows without the aid of magnetised arms...

We also have some golden oldies (hah). Here are the Custodian Wardens who are some of the oldest and wisest of the Adeptus Custodes.

Custodian Wardens - Warhammer 40,000

This set will allow you to make a unit of these several-century old warriors, resplendent with additional wargear. You can also make HQ units out of the kit with a chance to make the same Vexilus Praetor & Shield-Captain, just with different armour and weapon options.

What do you think of this golden horde?
