so I started a talons force, as I've gone on about since betrayal came out all those years ago, and the prospect of the custodian guard on the battle board became something that would actually happen.
been a little late to the party as the week after Prospero released, I was abroad for a fortnight, and work has made me pay for that time off keeping me from getting a good start on the army.
Also been trading and straight up buying additional Custodes off friends and other locals at my gaming club to build what I need.
these are still WIP, but the overall colours are pretty much done, just some details and then simple tidying up.
The army is being based around Neil Roberts artwork for the 'master of mankind' novel, which I'd recommend to anyone remotely interested in the custodes, sisters, mechanicum, or the emperor at all.
the bases are GW's Age of Sigmar sculpted bases, which I think work rather well when you remember that it was the old ones not the eldar who made the webway, and that many other races and civilisations will have use it over the millennia. Plus they're a nice change to straight 'city' or 'ash wastes' that regular 40/30k armies tend to have.
my general plan for the moment is to complete a full size squad of each unit or vehicle that gets released. so this sentiel guard squad has four more basecoated to join them into a full 9 man squad.
the guardian squad is an expection to the rule, as their a troops choice I'm doing two full squads of 9.
love the caladius, lovely looking, builds simply, and is a beast on the board. What more could you ask for?
these are all still WIP so any suggestions are welcome. also got another 20 custodes built and basecoated I want to get finished before the new year open day. where I plan to get another Caladius plus any other Custodes or sisters related releases.
until next time.
