Posted 21 December 2016 - 08:33 PM

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.

Looking good Garro. The Webway bases are a nice touch and suit the background of the army. Not much longer to wait for the whole list.

An outstanding job on the army Garro! I can't wait to see the rest as we finally get the army list in the next couple of months.

Looking good Garro.

I've just finished building my Caladius, and it does go together well - though some of the mold lines were a swine!

Think there will be a few shiny gold armies appearing over the next year.....!

Garro, what's the connection point between the bottom of the skimmer and the base look like?  Is it pretty beefy, or flimsy and you had to do something different with it?

using the AoS realm of battle board, and the AoS ruins sets. not very eldary but the eldar weren't the only ones to use the webway. and it existed long before them as well, so imagine plenty of other ancient civilisations will have ruins in it. plus I really like the generic AoS ruins. so much detail, and modular.

like this, it does come with a resin thin base to glue to, but I didn't use it as it would cover the detail on the base.

now onto an update. brought three pallas grav-attacks, 2 contemptor-galatuses, and ordered a second Caladius. got the Pallas and dreads built.

love building the Pallas, the whole model is a mear 10 parts, only one more, than a single arm on the contemptor.

 

hoping to get these, the 2nd caladius and some more infantry fully painted before the HH weekender, as I'm sure there will be more Custodes releases then (2nd dreadnought type with the spear, and the transport are practically certain, plus maybe something else).
