Together, the pair will unravel conspiracy on Terra and carve out their new roles in the Imperium. This Saturday, you can also carve out a role for them in your own armies, as models of Valerian and Aleya are available as part of the Black Library Celebration.


If you’re not familiar with these characters your best starting point is to check out the first book in the series: The Emperor’s Legion.

Watchers of the Throne: The Emperor’s Legion (eBook)$9.99



The Custodian Guard have stood watch over the Emperor’s Palace on Terra since the foundation of the Imperium. Charged with protecting the Master of Mankind from all threats, within and without, their fearsome resolve is renowned throughout the galaxy, and their golden armour is the last thing that a would-be assassin or saboteur will ever see. Alongside the Null-maidens of the Sisters of Silence, who are anathema to psykers and sorcerers alike, there is no threat to the Golden Throne that they alone cannot vanquish… until now.


Go check that book out and then you’ll be all ready for the arrival of these two new Imperial Heroes – Custodian Guard Valerian and Sister of Silence Aleya!
