Legio Custodes - Warders of the Vaults of Rython

Today's post is about my Legio Custodes force. The majority of the force will be clad in the traditional Gold of the Legio Custodes, however one unit of Custodian Guard will be clad in the black of the Warders of the Vaults of Rython.  These were a behind the scenes formation of Custodes, not known in the imperial records until their inclusion in the Prospero censure force.  They were vital in holding both the counter attacks of the Thousand Sons, ave slaying the twisted and mutated beings during the attack of Tizca.

The starting size of the unit will be five models, but I will expand this as I accumulate more of the Games Workshop plastic Custodes.  I'm hoping that Forgeworld release an upgrade pack with the Pyrithite Spear and the Adrasite Spear soon.  I'm not going to take a Vexilla as I think the unit looks better without.

In game terms, I'm initially think of equipping my Custodes with Teleporation Transponders.  Dropping 16 Custodes in your face would be useful I think 🤔.

I really like this colour scheme and they will really stand out on the table.
