The Custodes are here this weekend for your Pre-Order convenience!

via Games Workshop

Allarus Custodians $50

The Allarus Custodians deploy with sudden fury to tear the throat from the enemy army. Where a strongpoint must be cracked wide open, a traitor warship boarded or a foul demagogue slain even as he stands amidst his dedicated bodyguards, there are the Allarus Custodians unleashed. These warriors wear suits of Allarus Terminator plate, expertly crafted armour whose worth can be measured in worlds. Their weapons, too, are formidable, guardian spears twice the height of a man, or castellan axes that can lop the head from an Ork psyker with a single blow. Allarus Custodians eliminate key targets, sow anarchy and confusion through unsuspecting forces and completely destabilise the foe’s formations.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 3-model squad of Allarus Custodians. Each is clad in spectacular, expertly-crafted Allarus Terminator armour – this is covered in finely sculpted sigils of the Emperor, with Imperial eagles, lightning bolts, gemstones and filigree covering every surface. They are armed as standard with with castellan axe and wrist-mounted balistus grenade launcher – each model can replace the axe with a guardian spear, as 3 are included. 4 misericordia daggers are also in the kit, 1 of which is a special variant for a Shield-Captain. 3 helmets and 3 bare heads are included, with 4 helmet plumes.

You have the option to assemble 1 model as a Shield-Captain, using the specific shoulder pads, thigh plates, helmet plume and misericordia supplied, and 1 model can be assembled as a Vexilus Praetor, using the ornate vexilla in the kit.

This kit comes as 73 components, and is supplied with 3 Citadel 40mm Round bases.

Captain-General Trajann Valoris $35

The office of Captain-General is one of the most powerful military appointments in the Imperium. It confers full responsibility for the overall defence of the Sol System, Terra, the Imperial Palace and, ultimately, the Golden Throne and the Emperor himself. Many claim that Trajann Valoris is the greatest warrior to hold the title of Captain-General since the Emperor strode the stars, having proven himself to be dynamic and effective; qualities that make him ideally suite to lead in this age of unprecedented aggression.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Captain-General Trajann Valoris. His armour is elaborate and eye-catching even amongst his Custodes brothers – he wears the Castellan Plate, an ancient suit of powered armour that incorporates a heraldic tilting plate adorned with an eagle’s head emblem and large feathers. This includes a striking cloak made from the hide of a lion, woven through with adamantine thread – the lion’s head and front paws are draped dramatically over his right shoulder. An auramite halo frames his scowling face, and the whole suit is covered in the kind of ornate, sculpted details that set the Adeptus Custodes apart from other Imperial warriors – eagles, gemstones and filigree litter every surface. His main weapon held in his right hand is the Watcher’s Axe, an enormous polearm which incorporates a ferocious master-crafted bolt weapon known as the Eagle’s Scream; he also carries a misericordia and an ancient relic on his belt known as the Moment Shackle.

This kit comes as 19 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

Codex: Adeptus Custodes $40

The Adeptus Custodes are the Emperor’s personal guard. For ten thousand years they have stood sentinel over the Master of Mankind and defended the gates of his palace. Yet now the Emperor’s blades are unsheathed. Biochemically fashioned from infancy to function as supreme tacticians, combatants and bodyguards, they are death incarnate to those who oppose the Emperor’s will. Each Custodian is sublimely skilled, their talents and abilities to the Space Marines what those transhuman warriors are to unaugmented Imperial soldiery. The Ten Thousand walk the stars in numbers not seen since the Great Crusade, and woe betide those who stand in their way.

Codex: Adeptus Custodes Collector’s Edition $80

Available while stocks last, this Collector’s Edition of Codex: Adeptus Custodes is complete and unabridged, and features a soft touch cover with new artwork on the front and back, black page edges, a black ribbon marker and the original Codex cover art on the first page.

Praetor Collection $215

Datacards: Adeptus Custodes $15

Designed to make it easier to keep track of Tactical Objectives, and Stratagems in games of Warhammer 40,000, this set of 66 cards – each featuring artwork on the reverse – is an indispensable tool in the arsenal of any Adeptus Custodes gamer. Included:

– 27 Stratagems available to any Battle-forged Adeptus Custodes army as found in Codex: Adeptus Custodes, along with 3 Stratagems – Command Re-roll, Counter-Offensive and Insane Bravery – from the Warhammer 40,000 rules, available to any army;
– 36 Tactical Objectives, including the 6 specific Objectives from Codex: Adeptus Custodes.

Roboute Guilliman $60

 

 

Strategist. Hero. Avenging Son. Roboute Guilliman is the Primarch of the Ultramarines, Lord of Ultramar, and a peerless leader of men. Resurrected by the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Ynnari, he seeks to muster the strength of the Imperium and drive back the minions of the Dark Gods. Towering over even the heroic battle-brothers of his Chapter, Guilliman storms to war with a thunderous scowl. He clutches the burning sword of the Emperor, and wears the Hand of Dominion, with which he can tear apart tanks and crush his foes with ease. Yet it is the Primarch’s strategic brilliance that is his greatest weapon, dooming enemies to defeat before the battle has even begun.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines. An impressively-sized model, standing head and shoulders above the Primaris Space Marines, he is a riot of detail – the Armour of Fate that encases his body is covered in beautiful, ornate filigree patterns on every part of the armour, with sculpted aquilæ, purity seals, skulls and Ultramarine Chapter icons on every surface. His winged backpack features an Adeptus Mechanicus maker’s plate and glorious iron halo, with many cables and hoses attaching it to the weaponry it feeds. The Emperor’s Sword, held in his right hand, is a huge blade that burns with righteous fury (and fire), while the Hand of Dominion, the enormous gauntlet on his left, is also capable of unleashing hails of armour piercing gunfire. You have the choice to model Guilliman with his head bare, or with an especially aggressive-looking helmet – both options feature a wreath.

This model comes as 44 components, and is supplied with a 60mm Round sculpted base depicting Guilliman standing astride a broken Imperial eagle, flanked by 2 burning torches.

Celestine, the Living Saint $55

Wings spread wide, halo blazing and Ardent Blade in hand, Saint Celestine is a living embodiment of the God-Emperor’s might. She shines like a star amid the smoke and fumes of the battlefield, radiating holy light. The faithful are filled with strength and courage by presence, even as the heretics recoil in terror. With a gesture, the Living Saint calls down fires of retribution from on high, or infuses injured allies with healing energies. The Geminae Superia, Sisters Genevieve and Eleanor, would lay down their lives to protect the blessed saint from harm.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Celestine, the Living Saint, and her 2 accompanying Geminae Superia. She wears the Armour of St. Katherine, a set of glorious golden plate replete with holy icons and sculpted symbols. The model is held aloft from the base by a scripture that attaches to her billowing cloak – even this detail is dwarfed by the enormous wings that span out from her backpack, with a spiked iron halo above her enraptured face. The sparking Ardent Blade in her right hand blossoms with roses, even as a brace of doves is released on her left. She is accompanied by the Geminae Superia, wearing similar armour (with smaller wingspans) and aggressively wielding bolt pistols and power swords.

This kit comes as 46 components, and is supplied with 3 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

 

Cypher $35

There is one whom the Masters of the Dark Angels seek above all others. He is a being wrapped in shadow, an entity whose motives and methods are an enigma; even the name by which he is known alludes to concealment – though whether it is a metaphor or yet another conundrum is unknown. He is Cypher, and to the Dark Angels, he is nothing less than their most hated foe.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Cypher, Lord of the Fallen. He is bedecked in archaic, makeshift gear – as a renegade, with no Chapter to call his own, Cypher makes the best of whatever gear he can gather together. His backpack has been refitted countless times over the centuries, and his armour is a mix of various patterns. He’s armed with a bolt pistol, and a plasma pistol incorporating an external heat dissipator. His cowl and cloak are certainly well-used, with holes and tears everywhere – but the standout is the enormous sword he carries on his back. This may or may not be the fabled Lion Sword, and if it is, Cypher’s unknowable intentions become even more interesting…

This kit comes as 8 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.

Inquisitor Greyfax $25

Utterly uncompromising, devoid of mercy or remorse, Inquisitor Greyfax acts as the self-appointed executioner of any she names heretic. She is a psyker of some power – a fact that has led more than one of her peers to brand her as a dangerous radical – and her abilities allow her to detect any lie. This talent allows her to hunt with impunity, knowing that those she condemns have already damned themselves with their tainted thoughts. Inquisitor Greyfax is able to weaponise her hatred of Chaos, projecting it as a crippling pall of fear that forces her victims to their knees.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Inquisitor Greyfax. An incredibly imposing figure, she is clad head to toe in master-crafted power armour, which is covered in details – Inquisitorial sigils, skulls and ornate seals all feature heavily. She holds a master-crafted condemnor boltgun in her right hand, which couples the iconic might of the imperial bolter with a secondary launcher that fires blessed silver stakes – truly a powerful weapon against Chaos. A large master-crafted power sword is visible beneath the her cloak, which billows beneath a backpack covered in dials and exhausts. The model is topped off by a wide-brimmed hat which on some models might seem ostentatious, but is entirely appropriate framing the face of Greyfax, which features the Psyocculum – the Eye of the Emperor.

This kit comes as 13 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

 

The Emperor’s Golden Boys & a bevvy of the Imperium’s mightiest Heroes are now up for Pre-Order!

  • BrassWitch

    $50 for three terminators seems a bit more reasonable, still not the price I’d want, but hey. At least it’s $10 less than the deathshrouds :’)

    • Stephen Henry IV

      These guys also have better weapons, armor, are more elite, are likely more expensive point wise, and have more bits then just heads……oh well, I’m the sucker that bought the Deathshroud and I’m gonna be the sucker that buys 2 boxes of the Allarus. X,D

      • vlad78

        But the deathshrouds are overall MUUUUCH better.

        Those terminators are the most disappointing minis of the custodes range, static, cumbersome, almost monopose.
        Even if I ‘m not totally sold on them, I thing the FW aquilon terminators are better sculpted even though they use the same software (the body at least, better proportions, slightly better pose, at least the arms are not needlessly outstreched like on a doll )

        imho of course.

        • Stephen Henry IV

          “Better overall”, how so? If you mean looks, that’s a matter of personal preference and I think the Deathshroud definitely have more character. As for rules, I’m sure the Allarus will blow them out the water and into orbit.

          • vlad78

            Better look, better proportions, better pose and so on. Of course it is a matter of personal preference but you can’t deny those custodes terminator armors seem crude compared to other similar models.

            I don’t take rules into account for judging a model. ;p
            Otherwise all GW minis would be aweful which they are clearly not.

          • Stephen Henry IV

            I play both and like them both in different ways, but I get where you’re coming from.

          • BaronSnakPak

            The deathshroud have fewer wounds and attacks, but the Disgustingly Resilient rolls make them tougher to kill, and they generate extra attacks against Imperium models with 6s on the hit roll, and reroll 1s to wound. They also have d6 auto-hitting pistols.

            I just did a mock-combat roll (no shooting), and the Deathshroud took 1 wound, and the Allarus squad was wiped.

            It’s only one example, and dice will be dice, but it’s not as one-sided as you may think.

          • Stephen Henry IV

            The Allarus have 4 attacks base (not including any extra attacks from strategems, vexilas, nor the misericordias) and 4 wounds hitting on 2’s. 3 dudes hit 10 outta 12 times, and wound like 6 times. The Deathshroud save 3 with their 4+ invulnerables and 3D3 damage average 6 damage. Their FNP pass 2 resulting in 2 dead Deathshroud.

            Flip side, 3 Deathshroud get 10 attacks (3 for each regular guy, 4 for the Champion) hitting on 3’s. This nets you 6 hits with 1 extra from DttFE for 7 in total. Outta 7 only 4 wound with 1 re-roll for a 5th wound. The Allarus have a 4++ and save 3 resulting in 2D3 damage. Worst case is 1 dead Allarus mathmatically speaking as opposed to the Deathshroud’s 2.

            This isn’t taking into account any character buffs (which you’ll have), strategems, psychic powers, etc. And rough rounding. The Allarus will beat them alone. This is also taking into account the Allarus Terminator Armor being a 5++ normally and increasing to a 4++ with their detachment rules. If they have a 4++ base and it increases to 3++ with the detachment then they only loose half an Allarus. 😛

          • BaronSnakPak

            That’s my point, dice will be dice. I did a best of 3 roll-off this morning and the Deathshroud won 2 out of 3 combats.

            The 1 combat that the Allarus won, they only had a single model left with a single wound.

        • BrassWitch

          I disagree entirely, I find aquilon terminators to be the worst looking custodes miniature shown to date (even counting the god awful vehicles) They look even stiffer than Allerus while having amateur-ish looking torso detailing and helmet sculpts.

          On the other hand, deathshroud are way more characterful, but I feel like that is to be expected considering the difference in…let’s say “cultures” the characters are supposed to come from.

          Custodes terms do seem like they’ll include more options in the kit, even by a little bit.

          • vlad78

            Let’s agree to disagree then. ^^
            http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/790d13c39a570d0d80810c58375fbb3f756dcb7fde2b27d9dc575ceb869888b6.jpg http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0351d4f0dcd00f88d1d22445ba21c99bc2802ac2facc82044ee84096ddd61b08.jpg

            Look at how the plastic model seems static compared to the FW one with really large and crude legs and useless arms. (and it’s not even the worst allarus parts combination.) At least the FW one is walking and trying to do something with his fist.

            The problem with the Aquilon terminators comes form the infernus firespikes models which are really bad. But the main body is quite good imho and the stormbolter (or vulkite ) version is satisfying. (I think)

          • Stephen Henry IV

            The pic of the Aquilon looks like he’s about to give someone a brofist, the Allarus on the other hand looks like he’s commanding.

          • vlad78

            ^^
            Come and kneel !!

            http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fdfa96e04c89d578c5eadf249b6dc4c2fdb4d87787c5d6a5a3ae5e41a01d36f3.jpg

            But no one is directing the gun toward something he can actually see. ;p

          • euansmith

            It seems weird to me, that, in such a low model count box, two of the minis appear yo be more or less identical. And why hasn’t at least one of them got a boot on something, making him 83% cooler?

          • Stephen Henry IV

            They have just reused a picture. There are 3 different models in the box, don’t know why they did this but check their website and you’ll see.

          • euansmith

            Stranger still?

          • LankTank

            A boot on a skull literally doubling his badassery

          • Stephen Henry IV

            You could just angle the spear/axe upwards more. It could also be because they’re in close combat with an enemy unit that they look like this. The first pic you did of the Allarus had the Captain’s grenade arm in a firing position. Maybe it’ll be like the Grey Knight terminator arms and you can switch out they hand poses.

          • vlad78

            Of course. But my problem lies with the fact that such an expensive miniature needs some work to become truly awesome.

          • Stephen Henry IV

            No, I mean just position it up farther or down more. Although I agree that the lack of a dedicated firing arm is disappointing. Just use the duel handed spear pose from the regular Custodian Guard box. That’s what I’m gonna do with at least 1 of them.

          • LankTank

            God that firat one is gump. I mean is he just stolling about to wave?

  • AEZ

    The Allarus Custodians deploy with sudden fury to tear the throat from the enemy army. Where a strongpoint must be cracked wide open, a traitor warship boarded or a foul demagogue slain even as he stands amidst his dedicated bodyguards, there are the Allarus Custodians unleashed. These warriors wear suits of Allarus Terminator plate, expertly crafted armour whose worth can be measured in worlds. Their weapons, too, are formidable, guardian spears twice the height of a man, or castellan axes that can lop the head from an Ork psyker with a single blow. Allarus Custodians eliminate key targets, sow anarchy and confusion through unsuspecting forces and completely destabilise the foe’s formations.

    …. is it me or could this also be the description of regular marines if the appropriate names etc where changed

    • ZeeLobby

      Well. It’s always kind of been “News Flash: You’re buying space marines!”

  • AEZ

    The inquisitor. She’s a nice alternative stormcast if you use neaves head.

    • euansmith

      That’s a neat idea.

  • david

    Is it me or does Trajann Valoris look like Sean Connery in the film First Knight.

  • majbjörn

    xD
