Combat Patrol: Adeptus Custodes

Resplendent in gleaming gold, the Adeptus Custodes stride into war with the confidence earned through ten millennia of martial superiority. Bullets and shrapnel ricochet from gilded auramite breastplates – these warriors are armoured with the finest wargear, carrying the blessing of the God-Emperor Himself. When combined with the peerless anti-psychic protection provided by the Sisters of Silence, there are few in the galaxy who can withstand them.

Lay waste to the enemies of the Imperium with Combat Patrol: Adeptus Custodes. If you’re looking for an effective way to start up a new army or to dramatically boost your existing collection, this box is it. A Vexilius Praetor heralds the arrival of the Emperor’s wrath and calls his comrades, led by a Shield Captain, to feats of glory. Custodian Guard charge down the foe with spear and sword, while Vertus Praetors – magnificent warriors mounted upon ancient Dawneagle jetbikes – streak across the battlefield. And all the while, fighting in eerie quiet, the Sisters of Silence hold at bay the sorcerous powers of the warp.

The selection of units is perfect for a balanced Combat Patrol-sized force of roughly 25 Power Level, but the models in these units can also build a variety of alternatives, making this box incredibly versatile for both new and established players of the Talons of the Emperor. Plus, you’ll save money over buying everything separately – the Emperor provides!

This set includes the following multipart plastic models:
– 1x Shield Captain
– 1x Vexilius Praetor
– 3x Custodian Guard
– 3x Vertus Praetors, one of which can be build as a Shield-Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike
– 10x Sisters of Silence Prosecutors, which can also be built as Vigilators or Witchseekers
– 2x Burning of Prospero transfer sheets, which include insignia for the Talons of the Emperor

All models are supplied with their appropriate bases.

These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.

Who are the Adeptus Custodes?

Adeptus Custodes, the Emperor’s golden child, literally. These guys are dripping head-to-toe in the finest gold armour the Imperium has to offer. They guard the Imperial palace and the Golden Throne on which the Emperor sits… sort of. Each soldier is genetically enhanced and trained to an even higher degree than any Space Marine.

Their creation is shrouded in myth and mystery, but it is believed that they were created from the Emperor’s genetic make-up (gene-seed) much in the same way each Space Marine chapter was created from the Primarchs’. The creation and training of each Custodian is unique and much more time-consuming than that of their Space Marine brethren. It is said that they have been touched by the divinity of the Emperor himself. Seeing the Adeptus Custodes in battle it’s hard to argue otherwise.

What’s in the box?

At the front of patrol you have a Shield Captain, closely followed by a Vexilius Praetor (he doesn’t have a shield). Three Custodian Guards are ready for some close combat with their power weapons. Three Vertus Praetors, one of which can be build as a Shield Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike are ready to take to the skies for aerial combat. And ten Sisters of Silence Prosecutors, which can also be built as Vigilators or Witchseekers, round out the patrol. You also get two Burning of Prospero transfer sheets, which include insignia for the Talons of the Emperor.

This is a tough box to rate. The Custodes are great warriors, stronger than any Space Marine, able to deal a lot of damage and survive insurmountable odds. Unfortunately this means the Sisters of Silence pale in comparison and feel like they’re there to pad out the patrol. A couple more Custodian Guards would’ve been more useful instead, but then the Combat Patrol would have such a low model count it wouldn’t look as impressive as the others. It’s still a good box and great value, but chances are you’ll sideline the Sisters of Silence until going up against psychic opponents so you can make use of their anti-psychic protection.

Are they difficult to paint?

Much like the Grey Knights, you’ll be tackling a lot of metallics. But gold is much easier to highlight with the fine highlight being done with silver for a very striking finish.

Each model has impressive details that will deserve your attention. But with the low troop count you won’t feel overwhelmed by the task ahead and can really take your time and sink your teeth into getting everything perfect.
