Liam’s winning Custodes were packed into a single detachment led by Aleya, who is surprisingly cheap and efficient at that point value, along with the standard Captain and Trajann for their great re-roll auras and overall stat-sticks in combat.

Elites then go straight into 5 Allarus for some great bodies and pretty good mixed kits, slightly favoring ranged combat but still wanting to stat check in less elite factions in melee combat.

There are also 20 Wardens, which are mixed threats that can perform in melee and ranged combat, while also protecting the characters in the list and being rather durable! There is also a Praetor to help support the list with its powerful Vexilla ability while not being too shabby in combat on its own, either.

Fast Attacks have 5 Witchseekers to pair up with Aleya as a cheap unit that can hopefully easily trade up in value.

Transport wraps up the list and brings in an Anathema Psykana Rhino for the sisters to ride in!
