Brady Tatro 1

Brady took on the challenge of winning with the new custodes and did it with flying colors! He opted for a single battalion led by Trajann and a Jetbike Captain.  They are flying the Emperor’s chosen colors getting the stupid easy re-rolls and survivability strat.

Trajann is great because of his great combat prowess and hit/wound re-roll aura to all nearby core units. He also has a neat trick to fight twice once in a game to essentially delete nearly any model or squad in the game solo. The Jetbike captain similarly has a good hit re-roll aura but also has the benefit of better shooting and mobility making for a ranged threat that’s hard to take down.

Troops bring in a total of 9 Sagittarum, which are some great models thanks to their 4+ invuln and good combat stats.

Elites see a single unit of 3 Wardens. They help protect characters by preventing them from being targeted by ranged weapons when nearby.

Fast Attacks have a huge chunk of points and bring in 9 Vertus Praetors. These are high mobility units and are perfect for some devastating charges into melee combat. Plus the new Salvo launchers are no joke as well.

Finally, there is a single Grav-tank, which may not be as strong as they once were, but are still good tanks thanks to their durability and good weapons.
