New Codex Rules SPOTTED for Adeptus Custodes!

God_Emperor_with_Adeptus_Custodes_and_Slient_SistersPictures from the new Codex: Adeptus Custodes are starting to come out. Today we’re going to take look at some of the rules for the Adeptus Custodes!

With a release date set for March 25th, we’re already starting to see images from the new Adeptus Custodes codex. La Voz De Horus posted some new codex pictures yesterday, let’s take a look.

They look to be screencaps from a video unboxing here:


custodes

30 points more than the current 7th edition Contemptor model, but this one includes the Aegis, and Deep Strike abilities, PLUS venerable. Seems like a win for those kinda of points!

Appendix

The formation from October has been transformed into the the above detachment with new command benefits as well.New Warlord Traits, and a way to actually field them that makes sense this go around, and they got some pretty solid command benefits to boot as well.

custodes 2

Mostly all cut and paste from the rules they dropped for these guys back in November here:

Under Special Wargear is the Custodes Vexilla which gives all friendly units within 12″ of the bearer the Fearless special rule and in addition all models in the same unit as the bearer have +1 Attack whilst the bearer is alive. But what we really want to show you from this Appendix is the Guardian Spear. This Strength +1, AP 2, Two-handed melee weapon with the Block special rule that allows for an attempt to block a single attack during the assault phase. This ability can be used Once per turn which according to the rulebook allows it to be used in each player’s turn.

Venerable Land Raider

Now that’s the spice we were looking for: the second venerable status Land Raider for 40k, and a way to ignore shaken and stunned results (but you still lose a hull point). It also comes with some pretty cool upgrades as well now like a 5+ invulnerable save from the aegis ability. Is this the best land raider in the history of ever? For 275, that may just be the case.

The new codex has a release date of March 25th. Be sure to check back in with us for the latest updates until then, we’ll be putting them out as soon as we get them!

    the biggest complaints about 30k custodes are that there transports lack assault and there dreds lack deep strike. these rules fix bith for 49k. whixh is nice. but we lack a fast attack and heavy support and HQ whuch is not so nice. a carefull selection of allies us called for.

        the various forms of “there” always gives me trouble. As for the rest, i was commenting from my phone and i have big stubby fingers.
